Flat screens 

What is the difference between a flat screen and a flat panel? 

The terms “flat screen” and “flat panel” are often used interchangeably — they both refer to a screen that has a flat surface across the entire viewing area, in contrast to the traditional convex screen of Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) displays

What did flat screen technology do for image definition?

Flat screens were introduced to the commercial market at the end of the 90s and marked a swift improvement in image definition. However, the earliest flat screens still used CRT technology, and it wasn’t until the development and broader distribution of LCD/plasma/LED technologies that a higher definition was possible. 

Now, almost all screens are flat, so the terms flat screen/flat panel are used widely. However, the term “flat screen” is more often used in reference to TVs, while “flat panel” is often used to differentiate larger digital or interactive displays, such as Avocor’s interactive touchscreen range.

So, wherever you see the term “flat panel,” expect to see a commercial unit designed for meeting and conference rooms or schools and travel hubs. Both “flat screens” and “flat panels” have flat screens — the term “panel” generally suggests a larger screen size than a consumer TV set.

What size digital flat screen do I need for my office? 

Avocor manufactures a range of flat screens in sizes to suit small, intimate offices as well as large meeting rooms or public spaces. 

Our flat screens start at 27-inch for 1-2 person office spaces to massive 86-inch displays, designed for collaboration and group work. 

Our flat screens provide optimal viewing distances thanks to UHD and 4K pixel density. Our recommendations:

  • 27-inch screen for personal offices, desktop environments and phone booths; this display is for individual use or for small collaboration sessions with up to 2 people.
  • Our 55-inch screen is designed for the use of 2 to 5 people in a meeting. Users to sit 7.5 ft away from the screen. 
  • Larger screens, starting from 65-inch displays, are recommended for 5-10 people per meeting and viewers should sit 9 ft+ away from the screen
  • Our 75-inch displays are tailor-made for the use of 6-12 people and the recommended distance from screen is between 9.5 ft and 15.5 ft
  • Avocor also offers 85-86” displays that enables more than 12 people to use the screen all at once. These displays require a distance of 10.5-17.5 ft for the viewers

Mounting your screen on the wall provides a broader view for your audience. We recommend choosing a screen that accommodates the functionality of the room.

What is a flat panel display? 

Flat panel displays are much thinner and flatter than traditional Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) screens, which had a convex screen and an electron gun at the end of a funnel-like beam deflector tube. The CRT was much bulkier than modern flat screens, meaning that TV sets and computer monitors were large and heavy units that took up lots of desk space. 

CRTs had convex screens, literally bulging outwards from the corners of the display. And this outward curve meant that the exterior edges of the screen were less sharp than the center — a bit like looking into a magnifying glass where the outer image is blurred. 

Flat panel displays for higher definition

Flat panel displays overcome this outer image distortion, providing a crisp picture (and usually a wider viewing angle) across the entire screen. 

This, and the LED technology used to create flat panel displays, allows flat screens to offer images of a much higher definition than CRTs.  

Slim, sleek video displays

LED displays are much thinner than CRTs because there’s no beam deflector tube behind the screen. LED screens are slim and sleek and can be hung on the wall, which is particularly useful for meeting rooms and office spaces. 

Flat panel displays for interaction

Flat panel displays offer great versatility in how viewers interact with displayed content, with many flat screens capable of touch interaction, such as the Avocor interactive touch screen range. 

Designed for seamless collaborative working environments, our interactive touch screens make it simple for remote workers and in-house staff to interact as though they’re in the same room together. 

All of our interactive touch screens have flat panel displays, making them suitable for large and small meeting rooms, offering optimal viewing angles to include everyone in the conversation.

What are the different types of flat screens? 

Interactive touch screens come in various sizes, offering functionality to suit different business needs. Starting at 27-inch desktop-style screens, Avocor produces interactive flat screens for spaces large and small. 

Our largest screen is 86-inches, providing excellent visibility in large conference rooms and halls. 

With touchscreen and stylus recognition, it’s possible to use your interactive touchscreen as a whiteboard, with some displays offering full palm rest and rejection technology, for the most natural writing experience. Choose a model with a pen-on-paper feel for precision inking and annotation on shared documentation. 

If you’re using your interactive touch screen for conference calls and online meetings, we offer products with native access to Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, and Zoom. With integrated cameras and microphones, your Avocor interactive screen makes everyone feel like they’re in the same room.
