Roper Mobile integrates IMG’s My-T-Soft® in its Switchback Series Ultra Mobile PC

PASO ROBLES, CA. November 1, 2008 -- IMG, the primary supplier of onscreen keyboards, human machine interface designer tools, and pointing device enhancement utilities announced today that it has signed an OEM license agreement with Roper Mobile. Roper Mobile becomes the latest in a series of mobile computer manufacturers to offer IMG’s My-T-Soft onscreen keyboards utilities with its systems.

My-T-Soft (My-Typing-Soft Keyboard) offers programmable U.S. and international 3D onscreen keyboards and panels, can import custom or modified panels created with IMG’s Build-A-Board Keyboard Designer Tool, and is fully integrateable into a clients hardware / software platform via IMG’s Developers Kit. The main focus of the product is to integrate a low level user interface into any pen, tablet, or touchscreen based systems or applications as an alternative to the physical keyboard or membrane panel. It is ideal for use in environments such as automation, handheld, instrumentation, kiosks, medical, military, rugged, whiteboards, or other extremely clean, dirty, or hazardous interactive user environments.

The latest release of the My-T-Soft Family provides support for Windows CE and Mobil CE, thru .NET (under My-T-Soft CE) and Windows 98 thru Vista platforms (thru My-T-Soft). A thin client version for Citrix / MS Terminal Server and Remote Desktop is available under the My-T-Soft TS brand name.

"My-T-Soft provides the perfect complement to Roper Mobile’s ultra mobile pc's. Because it is written at the Windows Kernel level, unlike onscreen user interfaces developed in a database, browser, active-x, java, or high-level tools such as Visual Basic, it offers complete control over all Windows functions and applications including network logon, passwords, user input, and ID authentication, without conflicts with the operating system, other applications, or the hardware. It’s easy to show or hide the keyboards and unlike physical keyboards or membrane panels, is not subject to vandalism or accidental damage." said Jerry Hussong, IMG’s vice president of sales and marketing.

The IMG My-T-Soft, Touch, Pen, and OnScreen product line offers clients the ability to use pre-built layouts or create their own, via IMG’s Build-A-Board Keyboard Designer Tool, and present the user with only the necessary interaction. Keys and Panels can be added or removed from the user interface thereby limiting the user input and options in accordance with the clients needs. The products also works with any serial, usb, or PS/2 pointing device, making them equally useful in a wide variety of non pen, tablet, or touchscreen based environments.

My-T-Soft CE retails for $24.95. My-T-Soft retails for $99.95. Private label, OEM, and custom versions are available. Additional information can be found at
