How to Pick the Best Interactive LED Displays for the Ease of Doing Business
When it comes to purchasing and installing interactive commercial LED displays for your business, there are a lot of important factors that you need to consider. Interactive displays are no longer a nice-to-have luxury item for high-end office spaces. Over the years, they’ve become an integral tool that businesses can use to enhance their practices, workplace collaborations, and brainstorming ideas during meetings.
The pandemic has forced most businesses to operate remotely, but that hasn’t diminished the value of utilizing interactive screens. If anything, remote work has only served to increase the need for interactive screen sharing technology amongst coworkers. Plus, keep in mind that some people are still able to go into the office to work and may be conducting interactive virtual presentations from meeting rooms, boardrooms, or their own private offices. Interactive commercial LED displays make for more dynamic and in-depth presentations whether or not you and your colleagues are all in the same room.
What Is an Interactive LED Display?
Interactive LED displays, also known as touchscreen displays, are large screens that are typically mounted onto a wall inside an office space, meeting room, or boardroom. They typically consist of multi-touchpoints that allow users to manipulate and interact with data on the screen during professional presentations.
Commercial interactive LED displays are predominantly used in business settings, but they’re also a viable option for academic environments, medical facilities, and other public spaces.
Hardware Specifications to Consider for Commercial LED Displays for Business
Technology has been moving in the direction of digital communication for decades, but the need for interactive digital displays has never been more prevalent than it is during the COVID-19 pandemic. To accommodate the specific requirements of your business and elevate your employees’ capability to remain productive while maintaining communications with one another, there are certain infrastructural and network-based specifications that you need to take into consideration.
Since for the time being many of your employees are viewing or participating in your interactive presentations remotely, screen resolution is extremely important. Taking into account that some of your employees might be working on older devices that don’t necessarily have screen sharing capabilities, you should consider installing an interactive display that offers high resolution visibility.
Screen resolution should also work in conjunction with the size of the room. Smaller meeting rooms and shared spaces can easily accommodate 1080p FHD displays. Larger communal spaces and meeting rooms, however, require a screen with stronger visual capabilities like 4K/UHD resolution to effectively deliver the full impact of the immersive display experience and amplify your presentation.
Screen size is also important for the same reasons as having a crystal clear resolution. Size and resolution are two components that serve to complement one another. Also, you should consider the size of the room in which the screen will be set up. Choose a screen that fully accommodates the aesthetic and functionality of the space.
Years ago when businesses were first starting to install interactive screens in office spaces, the displays were most likely to be set up in conference rooms, meeting rooms, boardrooms, or executive offices where they were seldom used mostly for prestige purposes. Technology has come a long way since then and now digital displays for businesses come in a variety of sizes and price points. They’re more compatible with innovative devices and can support all kinds of applications, which justifies their use in different workplace environments including office spaces and large meeting rooms or other communal areas.
Type and Number of Inputs and Outputs
Next, you need to consider what type of connectivity your business requires. How many inputs and outputs should your devices have? That depends on how many people will be using the digital displays at any given times and which devices they’re trying to connect with. Are they all working remotely or are some of them working from the office?
Interactive digital displays have the amazing capability to connect all meeting participants on different networks to the same device using multiple types of devices such as laptops, smartphones, Bluetooth, etc. This technology makes remote interactive connectivity seamless as long as everyone is on a secure network. After getting a consensus on your employees’ and customers’ connectivity requirements, you can utilize the following inputs and outputs to suit your needs:
- Peripheral devices (keyboard, mouse, joystick, light pen, track ball, scanner, microphone, graphic tablet, etc.)
UI/UX and Digital Signage Software to Consider
Some commercial LED digital displays for business are equipped with predetermined software operating systems. Of course, you have the option of replacing them with your preferred software and OS, but you may need to purchase the licensing for them separately. Depending on your business’s technological budget and specific operating requirements, you need to research which UI/UX digital software signage is most appropriate for your objectives.
Interface usability is an essential factor when deciding what kind of software to purchase and install. Advanced software is a great choice for completing your business’s tasks and enhancing presentations, but it’s utterly useless if no one in your organization can figure out how to navigate it. Based on the technical skills and knowledge of your employees and whether or not you have a competent IT department, it might be in your best interest to install software or OS that’s universally easy to use and navigate—at least in the beginning. Start by looking into the following components:
- Onboard operating system
- Annotation tool
- Home screen setup
All of these features should be fully customizable to boost user experience, time efficiency, and overall employee and client productivity.
