Interactive Displays - What's the Hype All About?
Also known as "interactive whiteboards" or "smartboards", interactive displays are whiteboards with advanced technology that reacts to user input either directly or through other devices. With cloud-based interactive software and the use of in-store apps, classrooms and businesses alike can now create compelling content that will have everyone wanting to engage and collaborate better than before.
Interactive Displays in Education
Easy-to-use interactive software and the ability to add apps allows teachers to create hands-on lessons, getting students out of their seats.
Interactive Displays in Business
Most interactive displays are all-in-one devices and feature built-in software apps, ensuring all participants are connected and able to engage in the meeting quickly.
Why Are Interactive Displays So Popular?
Interactive Display Options for Education and Business
Different people and organizations require different solutions. What works in one classroom or may not work in another. Fortunately, KCAV is an audio-visual company with access to many different AV solutions. No matter the size of your conference room, meeting space, or classroom, we can find the perfect interactive display that suits your goals and budget.
Interactive Flat Panel Displays (IFPs)
Interactive flat panel displays like SMART interactive displays, the Clear Touch lineup, or Boxlight ProColor series maximize engagement with ultra-high definition (4K UHD) display technology that offers vivid images. Multi-touch and gesture interactivity make presentations memorable.
At KCAV, we have access to IFPs from a variety of manufacturers, but it's important that you know the right questions to ask of any vendor when selecting the best interactive flat panel for your needs.
Interactive projectors like the Epson BrightLink 1485Fi 3-LCD Interactive Laser Ultra-Short projector provide a solid interactive experience and can be easier on a budget, especially if you need to fill a large space of 100" or more.
Laser projectors offer a far brighter display than traditional lamp projectors and also require less maintenance as they don't utilize traditional bulbs. The one major drawback - do not install interactive projectors on uneven surfaces as it can significantly affect the performance of the touch tracking system.

Simply attach the MimioTeach to a wall, dry erase board, or other surface with a strong magnet or adhesive strip.
