An interactive display is a mounted device that enables users to make vibrant visual presentations and control on-screen data through digital touchscreen interactions. Available in a variety of sizes, interactive LCD panels are suitable for collaborative spaces ranging from small preschool classrooms to expansive corporate boardrooms. With an estimated 95% of Americans owning a mobile phone of some kind and more than 77% owning a smartphone, innovative technology companies developed interactive flat panel displays to help business and educational professionals leverage the power of personal communication on a larger scale.
Flat Panel Displays are the latest in a long line of interactive technology products.
Interactive technology has been making its way into schools and businesses since the early 1990s. When the first interactive projectors were introduced, they gave presenters the ability to share their computer screen or conferencing feed with an entire classroom or boardroom. While these advancements were certainly an improvement over paper handouts, overhead projectors, and audio-only conference calls, they were ultimately limited by input restrictions and environmental factors.
Today, interactive displays not only allow teachers and presenters to share information more clearly, but their touchscreen capabilities also facilitate a more engaging experience for the entire audience. While traditional keyboard and stylus input options are available, today’s leading interactive displays feature multi-touch controls that recognize up to 20 simultaneous points of touch. Unlike interactive whiteboard products that often require extensive training for new users, these interactive panels capitalize on the widespread popularity of tablets and smartphones by offering intuitive touch controls that feel familiar from the very first use.
Onboard PC provides expanded effectiveness.
Since they were designed to simply broadcast the contents of a computer screen, interactive projectors, also known as digital whiteboards, required the user to establish a wired connection to their laptop or PC. This single input option made them inefficient for collaboration. Conversely, interactive display panels not only feature USB connections that allow users to connect via laptop, tablet, or PC, but many industry-leading panels also include bluetooth wireless connectivity, optional PC modules, and built-in Android interfaces that remove the constraints of a single wired connections.
Ultra HD and 4K display enables crystal-clear presentations
Today’s interactive flat panel displays also reduce the need to address environmental factors like lighting during a presentation. With outdated whiteboard technology, projected images are often difficult to read, especially in bright rooms. Like 4K TVs, interactive panels display pictures, videos, and digital documents with extraordinary clarity—even in well-lit rooms. Thanks to the latest ultra HD technology, interactive displays allow users to present material in brilliant clarity without ever making that age-old request, “Could someone dim the lights?”
Software solutions offer remarkable flexibility.
Whether you’re reviewing a document in a class setting or brainstorming with other professionals in a boardroom, interactive displays give you the ability to manipulate on-screen data. Zoom in. Zoom out. Make notes. Highlight important information. Whatever you could do with an old-school document or interactive whiteboard, you can now do with incredible digital clarity thanks to built-in annotation toolkits. Additionally, should you need to pull up a video presentation or conduct an impromptu video conference call in the middle of your session, integrated software suites give you the ability to minimize your work with a simple gesture, just like a PC or tablet.
Interaction is optional.
While technology proponents focus on the interactive benefits of the latest displays, these devices don’t require interaction to be effective. Their durable LCD screens and ultra HD resolution provide an eye-catching method for sharing advertisements, event details, or whatever details need to be communicated to an intended audience. The displays’ built-in Android interface, USB connections, and network connectivity also make it simple to update messaging, providing even more control and convenience for the user.
