NEC Infrared Multi-touch Overlay Accessory (OL-V810) -

NEC’s infrared multi-touch overlay accessory is the best addition to a V801 screen. It provides protection and transforms the display into a touch-screen. But that isn’t all this overlay has to offer. Below is a brief synopsis of its awesome features.


Product Description

A V801 screen is a large-screen with an LCD display that is used in offices, schools and even households. However, they are mostly found in corporate lobbies and in board meetings.

What the OL-V810 will do is to transform the brilliant V810 display into a touch-interactive one.

On top of that, it has a multi-touch functionality. That means it recognizes more than just one point of touch on the screen. To be precise, it recognizes up to 10 points of touch.

Since it weighs only approximately 35 kg, the OL-V810 does not even add extra depth to the screen. However, please note that once attached to the screen, the overlay and screen can weigh up to 97 kg.

Usually, customers avoid such extra accessories because they slow down the display’s responses. However, NEC leaves no room for this complaint. The manufacturers of the OL-V810 boast a response rate that ranges between 6–16 milliseconds. And that is very fast.

Further, the OL-V810 is fully HID (Human Interface Device) compliant, making it compatible with different versions of Windows, Mac, and Android operating systems. Here is a clear list of all the operating systems, the OL-V810 is compatible with:

  • Windows — XP, Vista, 7 and 8
  • Mac — up to Mountain Lion OS X
  • Android — up to Jelly Bean 4.3

Plus, the overlay doesn’t come with too external accessories and provides a wider screen area. It even gives the user access to the IR area, the LED power, and the light sensors. Most other overlays usually limit light sensors only to their available solutions.

Moreover, this overlay comes with a steel chassis, making it strong and durable. That also means that the overlay is a long-term investment as it can be used for years.

In addition to its extraordinary touch functionality, the OL-V810 can also provide extra protection to the already expensive V810 displays. That is because the overlay is very similar to the tempered glass people use to protect their phone screens. The only difference is that the OL-V810 transforms a normal screen into a touch-interactive one.

Finally, the overlay is very easy to install and it can be done by just about anyone. The OL-V801 box comes with a guide and the screws it requires for installation. So there won’t be a need to hire a professional just to set it up. In fact, it doesn’t even require an entire toolbox. All it takes is three steps.


They are:

  • Remove the screws
  • Attach the overlay
  • Replace the screws

Final Words

The NEC OL-V810 is a great addition to a V810 display. Whether it’s for a school display or a corporate board meeting, having a touch screen on an LCD display can definitely add value to the institution. What’s more, the OL-V810 is not a device that needs to be upgraded frequently. After it is purchased, this overlay can last for years unless the glass gets damaged or broken. Considering that it is made of steel and tempered glass, even the chances of getting damaged are very slim.
