In the broadcast environment news channels are already fast seeing the benefit of multi touch surfaces. From CNN to Sky Sports and the BBC, the flexibility and high visual impact of multi touch is creating new dimension in news presentation

Layers of information can be made available at the simple touch of a screen or movement of a virtual object, therefore increasing the control the presenter has on his or her presentation and creating a visual spectacle. Presenters are no longer constrained by production staff controlling what is being shown on the screen, they now have the power themselves!
