The Era of In­ter­ac­tive Dis­plays

Mak­ing Big Im­pres­sions from Class­rooms to Con­fer­ence Rooms

HWM (Malaysia) - - TRENDS -

We live in an age to­day where items of yes­ter­day are dig­i­tized into brand new mod­ern prod­ucts. Pre­vi­ously a main­stay of class­rooms, teach­ers wrote on black­boards with chalk, but though it was cheap, peo­ple re­al­ized that the clean­ing process would be tax­ing and time-con­sum­ing. In the meet­ing rooms, ex­ec­u­tives used white­board with marker pens, but the cost of re­fill­ing ink can be quite an ex­pen­sive and po­ten­tially messy or­deal.

Users of the past were just limited to their abil­ity to write and draw well, whereas in­ter­ac­tive dis­play so­lu­tions, such as the Sharp AQUOS Board, al­low ed­u­ca­tors to upload im­ages di­rectly onto the screen, giv­ing a clearer and more vivid pic­ture to in­spire fu­ture gen­er­a­tions.

Pre­sent­ing in front of crowd in a cor­po­rate en­vi­ron­ment can be a very in­tim­i­dat­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. The ef­fect is made even more ap­par­ent when the au­di­ence, such as an im­por­tant client, might fully un­der­stand what’s go­ing on. Thank­fully, in­ter­ac­tive dis­plays like the Sharp AQUOS Board fea­ture multi-touch sup­port, al­low­ing pre­sen­ters to eas­ily zoom in and out of an im­age us­ing two fin­gers. This al­lows the pre­sen­ter to bet­ter high­light a cer­tain point, giv­ing a clearer pic­ture to his or her au­di­ence.

Be­sides that, the use of in­ter­ac­tive dis­plays is ben­e­fi­cial to the en­vi­ron­ment. The re­duc­tion of chalks and mark­ers us­age re­placed by one’s own fin­ger serves to elim­i­nate the need to rush out and buy more writ­ing sup­plies. For in­stance, the In­tu­itive Sharp Pen Soft­ware Ap­pli­ca­tion avail­able on the Sharp AQUOS Board al­lows users to write on the dis­play boards us­ing their own fin­gers or touch pen.

Ad­di­tion­ally, in­ter­ac­tive dis­play boards in the work­place could also dou­ble as a video con­fer­enc­ing de­vice. For ex­am­ple, the Sharp AQUOS Board – avail­able in 60”, 70” and 80” vari­ants – al­lows au­di­ences to con­duct video con­fer­ences in the cor­po­rate board­room with­out los­ing sight of the per­son on the other end. Be­sides work, th­ese dis­plays also dou­ble as tele­vi­sions, pro­vid­ing en­ter­tain­ment as well as pro­duc­tiv­ity sup­port.

With the ad­vance­ment of in­ter­ac­tive dis­play so­lu­tions, even more mod­ern tech­nolo­gies like the LCD pro­jec­tors would soon be con­sid­ered an­ti­quated. The abil­ity to clearly il­lus­trate and ma­nip­u­late in­for­ma­tion is key to ev­ery good pre­sen­ta­tion, which makes in­ter­ac­tive dis­plays like the Sharp AQUOS Board an in­dis­pens­able tool to ev­ery good pre­sen­ter.
