Interactive displays, also known as interactive whiteboards or flat panel displays, are electronic devices that allow users to interact with digital content using touch or gesture input.

They typically consist of a large display screen, a computer or other processing unit, and touch-sensitive technology that lets users control the display using their fingers or a stylus.

Interactive displays incorporate various technologies, including infrared, resistive, capacitive, and acoustic pulse recognition. Infrared interactive displays use infrared sensors to detect the presence of a finger or stylus on the screen.

Resistive interactive displays use a layer of pressure-sensitive material that deforms when pressed, allowing the display to detect the presence and location of a touch. Capacitive interactive displays use a layer of conductive material, such as indium tin oxide, that stores electrical charges.

When a finger or stylus touches the screen, it disrupts the electrical field, and the display can detect the touch. Acoustic pulse recognition interactive displays use sound waves to detect touch or gestures on the screen.

Interactive displays are ideal for classrooms, conference rooms, and retail environments. They are used to display and interact with digital content such as documents, videos, presentations, annotation, brainstorming, and other collaborative activities.

Interactive panels are valuable for creating user interfaces for websites, applications, and other digital platforms. They allow users to interact with the interface more intuitively and engagingly by providing buttons, sliders, and other controls that can be clicked or manipulated to perform different actions or adjust settings.

Interactive panels are handy when users need to input data, adjust settings, or make choices to use a product or service. For example, a weather app might use an interactive panel to allow users to select their location, choose a forecast period, or view different types of weather data.

Overall, interactive panels can make it easier and more enjoyable for users to interact with a product or service and can help to improve the user experience.

There are several methods for hanging an interactive display, depending on the display’s size, weight, and features, as well as the location and configuration of the installation space. Some standard methods for hanging interactive displays include:

  1. Wall mounting: Wall mounting is a standard method for hanging interactive displays, mainly when the display is relatively lightweight and can be securely attached to a wall using screws or other fasteners. Wall mounting allows the display to be positioned at a convenient height and angle for users and can help to save space.
  2. Ceiling mounting: This method involves suspending the interactive display from the ceiling using a bracket or other hardware. Ceiling mountings are a good option for installations where floor space is limited, or the display is positioned at a specific height or angle—for example, in a dentist’s room.
  3. Stand or pedestal: We offer stands to mount our interactive displays, which is a convenient way to move the display from one location to another. 

It is essential to carefully consider the installation’s specific requirements when deciding the best method for hanging an interactive display. Factors to consider may include:

  • The size and weight of the display.
  • The location and configuration of the installation space.
  • The intended use of the display.
