Benefits of Interactive Flat Panel Displays

Smart interactive flat panel displays are transforming the way we learn and collaborate–and for good reason. Whether used in a classroom of a primary school or the boardroom of a business, these smart boards are quickly becoming a fixture in numerous settings around the world.

Today’s blog will provide a brief overview of interactive flat panel displays, including what they are and what sets them apart from other technologies to several key benefits provided by this transformative display solution.


What is an Interactive Flat Panel Display?

The Interactive Flat Panel (IFP) is the latest in digital display technology. It combines the interactivity of a whiteboard with the digital capabilities of a computer screen to create a unique and valuable experience for educators and businesses alike.

Compared to once-relied-on bulky projectors that required constant maintenance and set-up time, IFPs demonstrate a high-quality display, enhanced connectivity, and built-in software solutions.

Designed for interactive whiteboarding, videoconferencing, screen sharing, and much more, users can seamlessly connect to these large-format displays from their own devices or choose to use the multi-touch capabilities on the display itself.

How do Interactive Displays differ from Interactive Whiteboards?

The interactive whiteboard was one of the first technologies to truly transform conference rooms and classrooms, enabling both students and staff members to engage with displays larger than a computer screen.

The traditional electronic whiteboard used projectors to display the image on a special screen equipped with cameras and sensors, which permitted teachers, students, and employees to control the computer using their fingers or an electromagnetic pen.

Although the rise of traditional digital whiteboards was initially promising, their time has come and gone. While they were certainly a benefit to businesses and educators, the effort required to keep them calibrated and well-maintained proved too much for most organizations.

The good news is interactive displays are here to stay. They represent the best alternative as they provide all of the benefits of digital whiteboards without their drawbacks. You can say goodbye to recalibration efforts and expensive parts, and hello to blended learning, collaboration, and interactivity.

Holding the attention of your audience is no easy feat. Especially in today’s hybrid environment, where employees and students are constantly exposed to endless distractions. But with Clear Touch Interactive Panels, you can ensure that your audience remains engaged and focused throughout the entire presentation.

The interactive panels allow presenters to integrate videos, games, and polls– keeping it exciting while allowing the audience to engage along with them. Not only does this help hold the audience’s attention but it also helps the information stick!

Say goodbye to worries over lost work

Collaborating is an essential part of any project. But doing so can be trying when you constantly fear losing your hard work. That’s why Clear Touch Interactive Panels automatically save all user actions to the cloud.

Anytime you make an annotation you can rest assured that your data is always safe. And even if something happens to your device, you can access those same files from any other device with the same software installed!
