When we focus on the parameters of interactive flat panels, it's crucial to choose the latest and optimal configurations, much like selecting the best smartphone to experience cutting-edge technology. Being trendsetters in this era not only brings about a sense of modernity but also ensures a more comfortable product experience.


1.1 Mainboard

For interactive flat panels products, our initial attention goes to the motherboard (a little secret: the most experienced interactive flat panel enthusiasts prioritize this aspect, as it truly reflects the interactive flat panels's performance prowess). The key priorities in the motherboard's parameter section are core count (8 cores being superior to 4 cores), understanding the composition of big and small cores, and checking the Android version. Currently, the mainstream Android versions for interactive flat panels are Android 11 and Android 12. It's anticipated that Android 13 will see widespread adoption in the market starting in 2023. Following this, considerations include clock frequency, Max RAM value, and interface specifications, forming a comprehensive approach to making informed decisions on interactive flat panels mainboard.


In addition to the mainboard section, several crucial aspects demand attention when considering interactive flat panels:


1.2 Display Quality

The factors influencing display quality among 4K interactive flat panels can vary. One significant parameter to focus on is the bonding technology. There are currently three types of bonding technology: air bonding, zero bonding, and optical bonding. Among these, optical bonding stands out as the optimal choice. This technique involves applying a special adhesive between the LCD panel and glass, eliminating any air gaps. LCD products equipped with optical bonding exhibit superior display effects compared to air bonding (air gap larger than 3mm) and zero bonding (air gap between 0-3mm). This includes enhanced color reproduction, broader viewing angles, and resistance to dust or glare in the air gap.


1.3 Writing Experience

As interactive flat panels serve as touchscreen displays for presentations and annotations, a seamless writing experience is crucial. To evaluate the writing performance, one can conduct a test by drawing a continuous line from the corner to the center using whiteboard software. This helps identify any potential breakpoints or blank spaces in the writing process. Additionally, attention should be given to the maximum supported touch points. Currently, 40-point touch has gradually become the standard configuration for high-end interactive flat panels.


1.4 Cameras and Microphones

As interactive flat panels increasingly find applications in online classrooms and meeting rooms, the specifications of cameras become pivotal. The latest cameras are equipped with built-in AI functionalities, enabling automatic focus on meeting participants through voice sources or auto-framing. Some AI cameras even offer gesture recognition, allowing effortless switching of camera tracking modes through simple gestures, as depicted below:
