The New Game-Changing Interactive Digital Displays

The classroom, corporate meeting and unified communication space have long been the testing ground of projectors and displays. The video projector and the digital white board were introduced some years back and now large-format LCD and LED-based interactive displays are addressing the need for collaborative tools with new-generation interactive digital displays. Once monopolized by video projectors, education and meeting spaces are now seeing an influx of new interactive digital displays that are offering better prices, improved total cost of ownership, higher resolution, and new compelling feature sets.

But with the introduction of many providers into the market and the ever-evolving list of user needs there is as much confusion over what constitutes best practices in choosing and using interactive displays as there are technology providers. This paper will attempt to help integrators and end users assess and purchase a new interactive display system. A key part of that analysis will be to separate interactive display vendors into those with closed-system solutions that require the purchase of all new proprietary products, software and peripherals, compared to new-generation “open architecture” interactive white board offerings that let the user adopt “best of breed” components from their favorite sources while continuing to use their existing and IT department-approved peripherals and software.
