Innovation Management Group (IMG) signs OEM License Agreement with Frigoscandia AB

Frigoscandia Integrates My-T-Soft® with its Refrigeration Systems

WOODLAND HILLS, Calif., October 26th, 2001 - IMG, the leading supplier of onscreen keyboards, button and panel utilities for pen and touch based systems, announced today that it has signed an OEM license agreement with Frigoscandia Equipment AB. Under terms of the agreement, Frigoscandia will integrate IMG's My-T-Soft programmable onscreen keyboard utilities with its Refrigeration system controllers.

My-T-Soft simplifies data entry by eliminating the need for an external keyboard. It can be integrated so that keyboards and panels only appear when needed and can be put away when not in use. On a secure network, the keyboard will automatically launch with the login window, so the operator can logon and off as needed. Keys and panels can be customized to control access and sized to permit accurate entry even with large gloved hands.

"IMG's onscreen keyboard utility is an ideal component for Frigoscandia's Refrigeration systems. It gives them an operator interface for their refrigeration systems PC controller without the need for external input devices that might be subject to extreme temperatures and potential damage from forklifts or other moving equipment.", said Jerry Hussong, IMG's vice president of sales.

The My-T-Soft (My-Typing-Pen, Soft or Touch Keyboard) product line offers more than 45 programmable U.S. and international 3D onscreen keyboards, with an unlimited number of programmable macro buttons and panels. The main focus of the product line is for use in pen and touch based systems as an alternative to physical keyboards and membrane panels. The latest release provides full support for Windows 95, 98, Me, NT, 2000 and XP platforms (with optional Citrix/MS terminal services support that runs on any thin client). Prior releases required different products or releases for different versions of Windows.

IMG's products are written at the Windows kernel level, unlike an onscreen keyboard or panel developed in a database, browser, active-x, Java, or high-level tools such as Visual Basic. This allows IMG to offer complete control over all Windows functions and applications, including ctrl/alt/del, network logons and passwords. Security features include the ability to "hide" keys and lock panels, controlling the user input.

My-T-Pen, My-T-Soft, and My-T-Touch retail for $99.95. OEM, private label, and customized versions are available. Additional information and graphics are available at My-T-Soft Info.
