Microsoft purchase of Perceptive Pixel closes

Microsoft’s purchase of Perceptive Pixel, a New York-based company that specializes in large, multitouch displays, has closed, the company said in an official blog post today.

Perceptive Pixel (PPI) is now part of Microsoft’s Office division, with Jeff Han, PPI founder, president and CTO, joining Microsoft as a general manager reporting to Office President Kurt DelBene.

The two companies announced the deal during Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference earlier this month. Neither company disclosed the purchase price.

PPi is a 6-year-old company with 70 employees scattered between New York; Wilsonville, Ore.; Mountain View, Calif., and Washington, D.C. Its Wilsonville operation, south of Portland, will remain there, while its Mountain View office will move to the Puget Sound area, Han said earlier this month.
