Interactive displays 

What type of display is best? 

Choosing a flat screen for your business represents a big step in bringing your remote and on-site workforces together.

But when comparing models, it’s first essential to consider what you need from a flat panel display. 


What size digital screen do you need?

The most pertinent question is: how big is your room? 

Are you looking to install flat screen displays in small meeting rooms, or are you hoping to establish a centerpiece display in a more extensive conferencing suite?

Consider the size of the room and the amount of natural daylight that fills the space. You may need a large screen designed not to be affected by natural or artificial light. 


Do flat screen displays need speakers?

For better multimedia integration, your interactive touch screen needs crisp, clear sound that is loud enough for your meeting room. 

Think about how loud you need the speakers to be. If you intend the screen as a portal for teleconferencing, think about how much volume you’ll need in your destination space. 

Avocor manufactures a wide range of excellent business-ready interactive touch screens designed to seamlessly integrate with your in-house systems and any video conferencing applications. All Avocor displays have in-built soundbars for crisp and clear audio, but sound can still be enhanced if required by connecting 3rd party hardware.

But if you’re struggling to decide which screen to buy for your space, use our Product Comparison tool, allowing you to compare the specification of up to three of our product lines to help identify which product will best serve your need.

Which display is good for eyes? 

Selecting the right interactive touchscreen for your office is challenging because every user has different visual capabilities. So, we recommend following these guidelines to find the screen that caters to your whole team:

  • Screen size — choose a screen that’s big enough for your room, determined by the maximum viewing distance. We recommend 55-inch for a 7.5ft viewing distance, and go for our maximum 86-inch screen for further. 
  • Resolution — choose a display screen with the highest resolution you can afford — many of our screens are 4K. This helps ease eye strain and offers crystal clear visibility for everyone, regardless of their visual capabilities. 
  • Refresh rate — eyes are most uncomfortable with low refresh rates, which can cause a visible screen flicker. We suggest a refresh rate of at least 75Hz or higher. The higher, the better. 
  • Display angle — research suggests it’s most comfortable to view screens with a downward gaze, promoting a natural blink rate. For full ergonomic compatibility, screen height should be 15-20 degrees lower than eye level.

Consider Series One Desk 27 for a premium desktop experience, offering native access to Google Meet and a range of collaboration platforms, or select one of our larger interactive touchscreens designed for optimal group productivity.

Is there a wireless touchscreen monitor? 

Avocor’s range of interactive touchscreens comes in various sizes, from desktop displays to large screens for meeting rooms. 

For example, Series One Desk 27 offers a desktop touchscreen experience that delivers native access to Google Meet. Alternatively, connect your laptop or mobile device via USB-C for a fantastic desktop extension of your personal computer, in 4K, with touchscreen capability and the ability to access all your personal content, and applications e.g.  Microsoft Teams, and Zoom.

Most of Avocor’s interactive touchscreens come with all the connectivity you’d expect from a premium product: HDMI, USB-A, USB-C, RS232, and ethernet (in and out). 

However, most of our digital displays come with a slot to accommodate an Avocor OPS module, which provides instant WiFi access, turning your interactive touchscreen into a wireless touchscreen monitor.

How do I display my commercial digital content over three screens? 

It’s possible to display your content over multiple screens in various ways. The most common connection method is to send your content from a computer or server to your screens via HDMI, VGA, or USB-C.

However, you’ll need to ensure your computer can display separate content on more than two screens and that you have the appropriate number of graphics ports. Check your system settings and see if your computer recognizes your three screens. If it does, click Extend These Displays in the Multiple Displays section. 

Alternatively, if your Avocor display screen has network connectivity, it’s possible to send your content to your digital display network wirelessly. 

Avocor’s range of excellent interactive touchscreen displays delivers colossal potential for your business, offering two-way communication between you and the consumer. Deliver news and information for your employees and visitors while giving them fingertip control over how they digest your content.

How does a smartboard/interactive whiteboard work? 

Interactive whiteboards help teachers bring visual interest to their learning content in a way never previously possible with old-fashioned blackboards. Savvy teachers use their smartboards and interactive whiteboards in a range of ways, including:

  • Traditional chalkboard note making
  • Multimedia display, sharing video, music, and online resources to boost classroom engagement.
  • Natively integrated video conferencing, facilitating two-way remote guest speaking and collaborative classroom/remote interactions. 

So, as well as a traditional chalkboard, interactive touch screen displays bring the world of the internet and connectivity into the classroom — boosting engagement, participation, and learning outcomes.

How to create interactive smartboard activities 

Most educational institutions provide in-house Learning Management Systems (LMS), such as Moodle and Blackboard. Interactive smartboards are compatible with all the content you can create in your LMS, offering real-time quizzes, video content, and podcasts for students to engage with at their own rate. 

Used in conjunction with presentation applications such as Powerpoint or Keynote, your interactive smartboard becomes a robust platform that brings content to life with complex animations and embedded multimedia content, such as webpages, video, and audio. If you can click it with a mouse on your computer, you can interact with it on your smartboard by pressing the screen or overwriting keywords that reinforce group discussions.

There’s a wide range of third-party online quiz applications, such as KwizzBit, Canvas, and Slido. These allow you to create new ways for pupils to interact with learning content, using in-class computers, tablets, and even smartphones for polls, quizzes, and collaboration

How to display two screens on one monitor 

Interactive displays offer great versatility in displaying and controlling your projected/displayed content. 

For example, you can display two screens on one monitor by embracing your computer's ability to split the screen or show multiple windows or applications. 

Access your computer’s Control Panel (or Settings) — on a Windows machine, you access that from the Start menu; from a Mac, you access System Preferences from the Apple menu. Then navigate to Display settings — here, you can decide whether you want to mirror your computer screen on your interactive display or use your parent device as a control panel. 

Whichever Operating System you use, there’s a way to control how you display your content, so check your system settings.

Why are touch screen monitors so expensive? 

Most of us love the flexibility and control we get when using touch screens — they put the power of creativity at our fingertips. 

But why are touch screen monitors more expensive than their conventional non-touchscreen counterparts?


How much are touch screen monitors?

Many desktop monitors without touch screens cost around $100+, while touch screen monitors are usually at least twice as expensive. 

However, most of the time, touch screens tend to offer much more vivid contrasts in brightness and color vibrancy than non-touch screens, offering higher resolution. Glossy touch screens are generally considered more responsive than matte screens.


What are touch screens made from?

Non-touch screens are usually made mainly from plastic — at least, the front-facing surface is plastic. 

However, the touch-surface of a touch screens is made from glass, which is more conductive than plastic.


How do touch screens work?

Touch screens have a top layer conductor that detects electrical signals from your finger. When you touch the screen, your finger completes an electrical circuit, which alters the display's electrical charge at that location. 

So, simply put, touch screens are more expensive because they contain more costly components. However, prices for interactive touch screens are coming down all the time, and you can kit your office, meeting- or conference room with state-of-the-art touch screens for a surprisingly affordable price.    


What are the benefits of touch screens in meeting rooms?

Consider the benefits of touch screens: 

  • Instantly interact with display content
  • Start a video meeting with a single touch
  • Make meetings more efficient and productive
  • Easy note-taking and brainstorming with touch
  • Write and draw on existing documents from third-party applications (such as Word or PowerPoint). 
  • Negate the need for an external computer and mouse — some touch screens are all-in-one devices
