What Is An Interactive Flat Panel Display?
Interactive flat panel displays are big touchscreen displays that are designed for education in classrooms, distance learning, remote collaboration, and meeting in business activities.
As mentioned above, the main parts of an interactive flat panel display include
- Touch screen
- Motherboard for android system
- OPS for Windows system (intel i3, i5, i7)
- Wireless mirroring tool
- Smart Pen
- Wall mount accessory
- Movable floor stand
The regular sizes of the touch screen are 55” 65” 75” 86” 98” 110”. It adopts infrared touch screen technology, which allows you to write and mark on the screen without any delay.
Furthermore, OkDigitalSignage applies zero-gap bonding to our product, so you will get less touch deviation and a better user experience.
The resolution supports high-quality 4K, which ensures legible displays for every detail of the files. However, if your application only requires simple representation, 2K resolution is also a cost-effective solution for you.
OkDigitalSignage IFPD has built-in Android OS, so it acts more like a large-scale mobile phone, you can install any APP you want. Under Android OS, remote meetings can be easier since it supports up to 9 remote terminals on an IFPD.
On the back side of the display, there is a port for OPS (Open Pluggable Specification), you can install Windows OS into the OPS.
With our engineer’s optimization, switching between the 2 systems can be very smooth. But OPS is not a necessary component if Windows OS is not a must for your cases.
Projecting your screen to the interactive flat panel display can be one of the salient features, because, most of the time, you need to share your screen with others in an interactive activity.
So wireless mirroring makes works more convenient than ever, you do not need to connect to IFPD with HDMI to realize this function, in some cases, the HDMI cable is not long enough to reach your position.
instead, there are 2 ways that you can use to share your presentation wirelessly.
- Scanning the QR code shown on the IFPD – after installing some specific software, you can transfer your data within the LAN through the wireless route
- External wireless mirroring tools with USB port – without software installation, you only need to connect this tool to your PC through the USB port.
OkDigitalSignage’s interactive flat panel display supports devices with any OS in the market, such as devices with windows, android, macOS, iOS, and so on.
OkDigitalSignage’s interactive flat panels have brackets to secure to the wall. But most of our customers prefer fixing them to a movable floor stand so that they can adjust the position and viewpoint according to various scenarios
