Interactive technology is becoming increasingly important in supporting better communication and collaboration in the commercial sector, and better classroom experiences in the Education sector.
Interactive technology allows users to interact with both visual and audio devices to make communication more effective. In classrooms the traditional product has been a Smartboard with projector. This technology is now being replaced with large format – touch enabled monitors. In many cases the monitors are slightly smaller, but the additional brightness and clarity overcomes this and we are seeing more and more schools investing in touch screens.
Larger school and University installations often have a touch monitor on the lectern, integrated into a lecture theatre environment to enable touch interactivity.
Commercial environments too, are investing in Collaboration rooms or centres allowing teams of people to share and work on the same data, in different locations at the same time.
