Many schools and businesses are still using projectors in their premises. It might seem a daunting prospect for them to upgrade to an interactive touchscreen. However, the benefits of interactive touchscreens for the classroom or boardroom far outweigh the price implications.
Interactive touch screens have become a major part of our everyday lives. Both the education and commercial sector are taking advantage in this technology to improve collaboration and engagement in lessons and meetings.
You might be wondering why they have become so popular. Lets have a look at the benefits of interactive touchscreens.
Interactive screens last longer than projectors
One of the main benefits of interactive touch screens is the expected lifespan. Our AlphaInteractive touch screens typically last around 60,000-80,000 hours of continuous use. However, projectors tend to last around 5 years with you having to change the bulb. Bulbs can often cost as much as the projector system. Our AlphaInteractive touch screens also come with a 5 year on-site warranty as standard. This means that you can have peace of mind that your screen will stand the test of time.
Easy to use
People of all ages can use interactive touch screens, it even comes naturally for most. We have found that even those who struggle with computers and using a mouse find it very instinctive to use their finger to swipe and touch the screens. We pride ourselves on our screen’s quality and ease of use. Our screen panels are ultra-smooth, making it easy for anyone to control effectively. Interactive touch screens are also easy to connect and sync your resources with. Simply plug in a laptop and away you go, meaning you don’t have to wait around for an IT Technician to help upload your content. Interactive touch screens have Android or in-built Windows operating systems so that you have the flexibility to instantly integrate your content.
No more calibration
Traditionally, projectors and older interactive whiteboards needed to be calibrated every day. However, interactive touch screens are self-calibrating so you just need to switch it on and away you go.
We all remember the rigmarole of having to close all the blinds when using the projector in class but then you couldn’t see the notes you were writing because the lights were off. With interactive touch screens, the anti-glare glass means that you can keep the blinds open even on a sunny day and still have fantastic, bright picture quality. Our AlphaInteractive screens are also 4K so that you can get the best quality picture to display your content.
Touch screens can add huge value to the lives of those with physical limitations. Using interactive touchscreens can help them to operate the device, instead of using more difficult mouse and keyboard systems. Our AlphaInteractive touch screens also have toughened glass so that they can be hit with great force but no damage will be inflicted. Our screens have been developed for schools environments so we made sure they are fairly indestructible. Alpha Digital Networks has supplied our screens to special schools throughout the UK with great success. We can also provide wall mounts and trolleys that can move up and down to make the screen accessible to everyone.
Alpha Digital Networks manufactures, supplies, installs and maintains 4K interactive touchscreens and other AV equipment for the education, retail and commercial sectors.
