TUIO is a protocol intended to connect multitouch environments such as laser scanners, multitouch tables, etc. to interactive installations. It is based on OSC, which itself is the network-based successor to MIDI. Today, many common devices can send TUIO, including IPhones, IPads, Android devices, Kinect Controllers, Wii Controllers and many more.

Using TUIO in your setup is easy. We will use an Android phone for the example setup.

1. First connect the MXWendler server and the Android device over a network, e.g. WLAN.

2. Open 'OSC' in the MXWendler IO Devices Settings: (A)

Menu: Settings → IO Devices → OSC

3. Activate 'Receive OSC'. (B)

4. Set 'Listen on Port' to '7000' (default). (C)

5. Turn on 'Log received Data' (reset later for better performance). (D)

7. Start panning on the Android device.

8. Check successful connection in the log window. (E)

Menu: Settings → Error and log window

{{#mpdftags: pagebreak}} Once the network setup is up and running, you can connect the TUIO command stream to an IO Event of your choice. To connect the first markers X position to the active layers X position, configure the following:

9. Open DMX/MIDI/Keyboard Events in the IO Devices Settings: (F)

Menu: Settings → IO Devices → DMX/MIDI/Keyboard Events

10. Choose 'Tuio events' as Trigger. (G)

11. Create a new event with the '+' button. (H)

12. Choose '2Dcur_Tap00_x' as event. (I)

13. Choose '/mxw/track/active/layer/active/translationx' as receiver. (J)

14. Choose 'Pass value' as event type. (K)

15. Confirm with 'Apply'. (L)
