All computer-based technology is lately gaining a lot of popularity in classrooms these days. There is a noticeable surge in the demand of interactive devices for smart classes along with the increase in the usage of tablets, laptops and others. In fact the craze of interactive panel display has increased across industries and sectors due to their optimised outcome. According to a recent report , the display panel market is set to hit almost 30 billion dollars by 2026. That is a whopping number when it comes to one particular technology. This also proves that this technology is here to stay for good.
Modern technology has created a massive phase shift in the way that the world functions in retrospect with the teaching methodology and the overall way in which the education sector has shaped up. There are several modern alternatives that are being created for the education sector, Interactive flat panels and interactive whiteboards are a few.
However, interactive whiteboards are a go-to option for many educational institutions due to their popularity and pricing, there are also many aspects that prove that might not be as upto the mark to fit the education technology arena today. Especially when it comes to comparing them with the Interactive Display panel.
Let us look at some of the observations which proves that why Interactive Display panels are much popular at schools currently than the projector based white boards
Interactive Display panel has a very sleek panel which is reinforced with an extremely premium design. This makes the setup much less cumbersome and clutter free when compared to the projector based white boards which have a lot of apparatus along with it. There are also so many wires surrounding it. Moreover, display panels have a light setup, whereas the white board projectors have hefty equipment that are aligned alongside.
There is also a major spacing issue with the whiteboard projector whereas the display panel is compact and well facilitated at its seams.
The interactive flat panel Display supports a HD/4k resolution which makes playing interactive high-end colourful videos to be extremely brain stimulating. This is especially good for younger students who are in the initial stages of brain development. It not only enhances their visual stimulus but also makes sure that the brain activity is on a good level. In a nutshell it helps the students to understand and grasp the concept better and retain information in a much better way. Whereas the whiteboard projectors are especially unpopular in terms of resolution. Since it uses the reflected imagery the resolution is already hazy along with a lot of glaring that is involved through different light sources.
Interactive flat panel displays are equipped with a surround sound system that has a front panel embedded for sound output. This feature makes sure that no other sound output is needed externally. The speakers that are attached with the Interactive display panel are capable enough for being loud enough from a medium to large room efficiently. While the projector-based whiteboard requires an external audio output which becomes extremely messy with its already complicated and multiple device-based setup.
Interactive Flat panel displays are protected by thick glass. They do not have a sloppy interface which can break easily. They are built in such a fashion that they are resistant to student vandalism and breakage. At the same time, they are lightweight as well so that none of the students have any chance of getting hurt. Whereas the projector-based whiteboards are extremely hefty, and the white board is not durable in terms of its fixation. With everyday wear and tear the knobs and nuts might become loose and as a result it might cause an accidental hazard. The weight adds-on to a higher degree of damage that can culminate.
While the quality of images obviously fares much better in an interactive display panel, the lightning of the room is not responsible for its display quality. This is mainly because of the fact that the display panel is glare free unlike the projector based whiteboard which not only is extremely susceptible to glaring due to the reflection being a shadow source but also because there are special measures that has to be taken for its display output, like making sure that the blinds and windows are closed which is quite a task on a daily basis.
From the above based observations, we can clearly conclude why the Interactive display flat panel is much popular and a better choice amongst the students especially when compared to the projector-based whiteboards. The Interactive display panels are
It can be easily said that now is the best time to make a switch from projector-based whiteboards to Interactive display panel.
