Interactive Displays are rapidly replacing the older technology of Interactive Whiteboards.

There are very few manufacturers still producing Interactive Whiteboards and spares are very scarce, so if a fault appears it is almost impossible to repair.

Interactive Displays also offer a number of significant advantages over the old Interactive Whiteboards including;

  • Significantly lower electricity usage.
  • Very bright image even in daylight.
  • No expensive projector lamps to replace.
  • No filters to clean.

Interactive displays or panels offer all of the functionality of  Large Format Displays but in addition the presenter can control the local computer and thereby the presentation via touching the large display. Each touch represents a mouse click or keyboard stroke.

Each manufacturer of the screens offers a range of additional functions however the main features are;

  • The screen can be used as an electronic flipchart, with the ability to save each page created.
  • A user can add annotation over a frozen screen image, which can then be saved.
  • Highlighting an area of the screen or line of text.
  • Hand writing recognition.
  • When viewing a website, or a video you can freeze a screen and then add your own highlights or annotation, this screen can then be saved.
  • At the end of the meeting the saved screens can be printed, or circulated via email to all participants.

As the ability of the additional functions has grown an optional inbuilt computer processor running an androidoperating system (similar to that used by many phones), has been installed to provide the power for these features.

To allow the user to run demonstrations and presentations, historically a dedicated computer has been installed in the room attached to the display via an HDMI cable, and this computer is then declared on your network allowing it authorised and secure access to your applications, files and the Internet as required by the meeting.

Several manufacturers now offer the option of an in-built Windows PC to provide this function, removing the need for a dedicated desktop or laptop computer.

Crusader are now able to ofer the ability to easily connect the presenters laptop, iphone or tablet to the Interactive screen via a dedicated wireless system removing the need for cables.

Large Format Display Screens can be installed on a wall or mobile stand to provide a clear view for multiple attendees of a meeting.

A screen is connected to either a local or remote computer and displays what it is sent via the network or local cable.

A display can also be used for remote digital signage and to communicate messages to staff and visitors, the message can be controlled and/or changed remotely across the network from a designated administrators computer.

There is no direct interface or interaction via the large screen.

They are available in a variety of sizes and can be installed together to create a large display wall.
