Current interactive displays have changed the way that information is circulated in business, retail, the medical field, and education. These devices are taking the disbursement of knowledge and the ability to communicate ideas to another level. Screen technology should be a reflection of the way that humans already interact, in a fluid, intuitive, non-geographically limited way. Reaching people where they live, play, work, and go to school is the focus of sales, marketing, education, and diagnostics. Sharing information is vital, and display screens that are interactive allow the individual or group to communicate on a large scale, from an intimate classroom to a kiosk in a mall. Industry and schools alike are increasingly turning to A/V Integrators for assistance in need assessment, design implementation, installing sophisticated display systems and the training required to program and use the equipment at its highest level. Designers and technicians are available during and after the implementation process to provide help and training as needed.
What are the benefits of interactive displays?
Communication and collaboration are critical in the exchanging of information and ideas. With a vast knowledge base at the fingertips of anyone who uses a mobile device, specific functions are expected to be present in technology. Touchscreen swiping, logging into a meeting remotely, providing training and education at a distance, imparting medical and research data on a global scale. These are the cornerstones of successful interaction.
- In the classroom – Institutions using interactive screens for learning have a wide variety of teaching tools literally at their fingertips. From taking attendance to virtual field trips around the planet, interactive display technology (IDT) allows the immersion of students in geography, other cultures, note taking, homework checking, interacting with different classes, and reaching large groups of students that would otherwise never come into contact. Display technology is for all intents and purposes a source of training that is limited only by the imagination. IDT is a fantastic classroom tool at all grade levels, the full potential of which has yet to be realized.
- For business – Each generation of interactive displays adds functionality to meetings, collaborative sessions, presentations and more, transforming any industry. It is a smart technology that empowers managers, employees, and customers with a meaningful way to interact with training, marketing, and sales exhibitions. Gone are the days of boring lectures at podiums in darkened halls and boardrooms. The advent of ultra high-definition has opened the viewing experience to the entire audience in bright, crisp, vivid detail. Adapting the technology to a particular space is not an issue. Conference rooms or hotel lobbies can be used to reach clientele or potential customers, literally redefining the workplace concept. Meetings do not have to be static and boring. Wireless connectivity via mobile devices or computers allows each participant to be hands-on, while not even having to be in the same geographic locale.
Why consult with an A/V Integrator?
The short answer is ease of implementation. Hiring experts in any field is a smart move. IDT is no different. Most companies and schools do not have staff on board who can sufficiently determine their needs. For most, it is hit or miss at best. It is much easier and more cost-effective to hire a company with years of experience and a proven track record.
Schools and businesses often rely on the IT department to achieve interactivity. IT departments are full of bright, adept individuals that are good at what they do. However, when it comes to specialty design and installations such as interactive media, IT techs may not have the proper knowledge to assess needs, design an optimum system, and then build it from the ground up. Technology in these areas is ever-changing, and it is difficult to keep abreast of current trends. That is where professional integrators provide invaluable service, especially when the use of multiple technologies is in order. Modern displays are designed to work with and as a part of a more extensive system. Experienced engineers and technicians have a way of understanding a company’s needs and goals and implementing the appropriate tools and equipment, providing the ideal solution. They do so with an eye towards contemporary designs and future needs. They will install and train in the use of state-of-the-art systems that have legroom for expansion as a company or school grows and as needs change. Additionally, support options are available to make sure that everything stays up and running smoothly and that the investment is protected. Professionals and educators may rely on the technology and support to accommodate every need.
Effortless communication and collaboration are crucial in the exchange of information and ideas and delivering content that packs a punch. With a vast knowledge base available to anyone who uses connected devices, training, long-distance education, imparting medical and research data, and marketing on a global scale are facilitated via IDT. These are the cornerstones of successful interaction, and interactive displays deliver.
