The interactive display has been widely used in various fields. While implementing a touch screen may involve other costs than other input methods, it can provide some significant advantages. If your classroom or office is still using traditional presentation methods, it’s time to consider the possibility of switching to interactive presentations.
Easy to use
One of the major advantages of interactive displays over other input methods is ease of use. Although most users are familiar with common combinations, like keyboards and mice, writing or touching icons directly on the screen can reduce staff training time. It can also enable users to operate and use the device autonomously. interactive displays can also be useful for employees to handle multiple tasks because their interface requires less concentration than mice and keyboards.
Interactive displays also increase the speed of work. When the user picks up the computer mouse or touches the trackball, there will always be an uncertain moment because he must find the pointer, adjust his movement to match the mouse acceleration and so on. The touchscreen allows the user to directly select the icon and directly translate the manual writing into text input. A study shows that compared with the traditional input method, the touch screen system user’s response time is reduced by 20%.
With the development of technology, the size of the interactive display device is expanding. Some of the interactive flat panels can reach 96 inches, like IQTouch series. Meanwhile, interactive whiteboards can reach 150 inches, to meet the needs of various different scenes of the demonstration.
There are many hardware and software that work with touch screens to expand functionality. For example, Visualizers can put the contents of paper materials on the display screen, and make comments and demonstrations through it. This means that you can use the interactive presentation technology on more occasions.
