iPad Application

Using OradTouch on the iPad

Using the OradTouch application, presenters can directly interact with a wide variety of graphical content in a broadcast environment.

Unique to OradTouch is the realtime background update which allows the presenter to see the result of their interactions immediately on the iPad screen, without having to look at an external monitor. This means that the presenter is always maintaining their focus on presenting their story rather than looking at a touchscreen.

The application runs natively on Apple’s iPad.

Interactive templates are prepared in Orad’s 3Designer application, where scene elements are associated with different interaction types (such as tap, drag and hold). The template is then loaded with Orad’s 3DPlay application and these interactions are associated with 3DPlay actions. When the appropriate interaction is made with the object from the iPad, 3DPlay triggers the action in response.

The OradTouch application for iPad is available as a free download in the Apple App Store. To access it, open the Appstore application on the iPad. You’ll need to register if you do not already have an account for the Appstore. 

  1. Once the application is set up, locate the 'Search' tab at the bottom of the screen and input the search term ‘OradTouch’.
  2. Select the OradTouch search result and an information screen will be shown.
  3. Tap the 'Free' button, and then the resulting 'Install' button to start the installation.
  4. Confirm your Apple ID to proceed with the installation. The application then downloads and installs.
  5. When finished, an application called ‘OradTouch’ will appear on the iPad Springboard.
  6. Start it by tapping the icon.  






Note: Alternatively you can download the application using iTunes and synchronize/upload it to the iPad.
