Many of these devices have multi-touch technology (multiple touch), which opens up even more possibilities for users. People use such screens daily. The simplest example is a simple smartphone, which almost every person in the country has. With one click you can get absolutely any information.
Monitors have gained great popularity in various fields – business, education, advertising. The devices are ideal for work and training, as well as for informational purposes. Their size can be different – from small displays for personal use to huge platforms for a large audience. You can easily display an image or text on the screen, which you can make changes at the same minute. In shopping centers displays are installed so that customers can independently obtain the information they need. Monitors have become an excellent alternative to conventional graphite boards in schools. Now most classrooms in schools and universities are equipped with this technology. This allows you to make the learning process more fun for students and convenient for teachers.
The touch information terminal is an easy way to get information without contacting the staff. In large stores, you can see the interactive store plan on a large monitor and easily find the shortest path. It is also a great replacement for information desks where ordinary people work. Large fast-food chains have acquired interactive terminals. With their help, you can place an order, quickly pay with a bank card and pick it up at the pick-up counter. This greatly facilitated the work of establishments – the queue and waiting time decreased. It is possible to change the language at the terminal, which means that foreigners also have the opportunity to use the device without experiencing any difficulties with understanding.
Interactive information stands are used even in places like museums. It would seem how it is possible to apply and for what? Monitors and terminals are not only installed in museums for simplified operation. With their help, it is possible to create exhibitions where the visitor can fully interact with the exhibits, although they are not tangible.
How to use interactive monitors?
Interactive (touch) monitors are feedback displays that not only display information but also allow you to interact with it by touching the screen (touch screen). On such a screen, you can draw with your finger or a special pen, enter text. The most common example of such a screen is the iPhone. In addition to being used in personal devices, interactive is gaining more and more popularity in other areas – business, training and education, retail chains and for advertising purposes. It is there that touch-screen monitors with a large diagonal and interactive whiteboards are introduced most widely. How and what are interactive monitors used for?
Firstly, interactive monitors are ideal for group work, when several people are working on the same project, creating a joint result. Information is displayed on the interactive screen — text, pictures, diagrams, charts, and even video — and any participant in the meeting can make a note on the screen, draw in the missing details, and retouch the excess. Moreover, this can be done both by physical contact with the monitor and without getting up – through a smartphone or tablet connected to an interactive whiteboard.
The final picture obtained as a result of such collaboration can be printed, sent by e-mail, saved to a file. This approach is much more convenient than marking on paper or discussing one project on several participant laptops.
Secondly, touch displays are extremely convenient for learning. Instead of the traditional blackboard and chalk, the teacher uses an interactive monitor with a large diagonal.
The advantage is huge: at any time, you can display an image or video on the display, make the necessary notes, and immediately send a screenshot to all students in the audience for further study.
Students can easily display their prepared homework on the monitor.
Thirdly, the use of interactive monitors for informational purposes. In shopping and entertainment centers, shops, at the reception of hotels and offices, displays are installed on which schemes, plans, schedules, catalogs, etc. are displayed. Visitors by clicking on the screen select the menu items of interest and independently find the necessary information.
Interactive displays are available in different diagonals: from small monitors with a diagonal of 20 “for personal use, to huge 80-inch screens that are suitable for work in a large audience. Among the manufacturers, there are both unknown Chinese brands (with the appropriate screen quality), as well as international Leaders (e.g. Eagle Touch).
