Interactive Flat Panels

Often referred to as flat screens, interactive flat panels encompass so much more. Relegating blackboards and overhead projectors to low-tech relic status, flat panels are ushering in the future of interactive tools for the classroom, medical field, commerce, the law profession, and virtually any entity that holds meetings, seminars, training classes, and more. New screen technology is blazingly fast and comes with a variety of software applications for specific industry needs. Touch screens enable genuine interaction in a rich and productive environment, allowing users to access and share content fast and efficiently.

 

How do certain industries use interactive flat panels?


The ways in which interactive flat screen devices can be utilized are so many and varied, and it is hard to gauge. The applications are seemingly endless, but some of the ways include:
  • The Classroom. In the classroom, interactive flat panels offer enhanced opportunities for collaboration and communication. Teacher/student interaction reaches another level. Classes become more interesting, making the learning experience truly immersive for students. Today's class, equipped with digital media, offers a versatile blend of materials that will inspire and captivate. Superior image clarity and interactive capabilities are becoming the foundation for teaching materials, and for students actively taking part in the learning process, thereby producing a higher level of achievement. Students are already accustomed to high-definition imagery from wide screen televisions, and for many, interaction is second nature thanks to video game technology.
  • Hospitals/Medical Facilities. Healthcare organizations focus on emerging technologies as a way to supplement diagnostics, strengthen collaboration among professionals, and improve the dissemination of information to patients. Interactive digital panels find use as surgery boards and to track patient treatment. They have found applications in the operating room, the ER, and nurses’ stations.
  • Corporate Use. Interactive screens offer flexibility in the boardroom like no other media. Nowhere has this technology had a bigger impact. Corporations tend to embrace media that has proven to streamline and enhance productivity. Interactive screens can communicate wirelessly with employees’ connected devices. Meeting attendees can interact with a presentation via tablet, laptop or phone, significantly augmenting collaborative efforts. Sharing documents, spreadsheets, presentations and more is easier than ever before. Interactive screens are indeed creating the workplace of the future, today.
  • The Courtroom. State-of-the-art interactive flat panels are being used increasingly in the courtroom as a way to present evidence, exhibits, and documents. They are changing the face of the courts in a dramatic manner, and the way proceedings are carried out. High-definition and large screens make it possible for everyone in the room to make out fine details, as well as read what otherwise would be small print. The judge and jury can easily follow the reading of documents. The presentation of pre-recorded depositions facilitates testimony. Attorneys and expert witnesses can use the touch screen technology to notate or sketch directly on exhibits, which can then be saved and referred to at a later time.

The technology of interaction is creating more and more possibilities for us to communicate with each other, boosting productivity, and enriching our lives. We are a tactile species, and when we can touch things, both figuratively and literally, we are at our creative best.
