We're putting together a couple of Mac Mini installs to playback media to our new projection system, and due to space limitations, the theater tech suggested we look at touch screen monitors. I've been search for MacOS compatible touchscreens, and all the ones I found had less than stellar reviews or are no longer in production.
Does anyone know of some touchscreens that'll work?
Going that route is unconventional at best and will run in to all sorts of problems like future support, compatibility and high cost. That said, there are options:
All touchscreens that are “normal” screens with touch on top still work provided the touch layer simulates a standard usb trackpad or even a mouse.
Better integrations come with capacitive and multi-touch options are things like wacom digitizers and complete solutions from wacom themselves like the cintiq line. The OS supports touch via Ink, macOS’s system-wide pen and finger touch integration. Other options like the Dell S2240T combined with TouchBase UPDD used to work very well too.
Edit: keep in mind that a touchscreen works best when the controls on screen are designed with touch in mind (i.e. when using a finger to push or slide something, the visual area is usually shifted up from the 'active' area because you put your finger down on the button causing your touch to always be below the actual visual button -- not taking that in to account in the software makes it a bit finicky to use).
We have a 85" multitouch display (Christie FHQ842) in our lobby, and I fully explored the options with Mac at the time . After getting no where, I finally gave up and went Windows 10. Mac's just don't support multitouch points via USB (or maybe any way); this screen supports up to 10 touch points.
