Touchscreen Monitors Are Naturally Intuitive for Interactive Applications
TAGS: Business Collaboration | Collaborative Learning | Digital Signage | Digital Wayfinding | Interactive Display
Of course, we love touchscreens. We spend a good part of our day on them on smartphones and tablets. And touchscreens are seemingly also invading our car infotainment systems too because we are so used to using them in other contexts. Just about everyone has something with a touchscreen – a smartphone, tablet, or other devices, and in many school districts in Texas, kids are getting iPads and tablets as early as the third grade. Even for older people not well-steeped in technology, a well-designed touch interface can be easy to figure out.
In the past, we've discussed the benefits of touchscreen monitors and interfaces for business collaboration. While there are clear benefits for business applications, there are other interactive applications where you want the user to have zero learning curve.
This month, we’d like to recap why touchscreen monitors are excellent for interactive applications in Dallas and some different solutions where you can employ them.
The Modern Way to Navigate Anywhere

Have you ever driven into the University of Texas at Dallas, parked, and had no idea how to get to a building? Have you ever gotten frustrated looking for the restaurant at Richardson’s City Line where you were supposed to meet your friend for lunch 10 minutes ago?
While we have our smartphones with mapping apps to help us navigate to places, navigating at large places – like college campuses, retail malls and shopping centers, and airports, stadiums and entertainment venues – is often not that easy. But there is technology today that can change all that. Rather than just using static signage, today’s commercial audio video systems let venues simplify navigation – making it interactive, engaging, and offering commercial possibilities too.
This new technology is called Digital Wayfinding. It’s really applications that put together a variety of available tech to make navigation easier – touchscreen displays, video, audio, and Internet-connected software – to augment or supplant simple paper maps and confusing signage.
Let’s explore some of the benefits of applying digital wayfinding applications to commercial audio-video systems here in Richardson.
Add Touchscreen Technology to Your Meeting Spaces

The nature of work and collaboration is changing. More powerful portable devices and new communication and collaboration software have radically changed the way information can be accessed and shared, speeding up decision making and changing the nature of workspaces as well.
We have discussed in the past the benefits of conference room technology and interactive displays for a variety of business and educational applications. Interactive displays can also improve collaboration. Just about everyone has a touchscreen smartphone, tablet, or other devices, and that has made the use of touch and gesture as common a way to interact with a computing device as a mouse, trackpad, and keyboard. Microsoft had also made touch interaction a standard part of the Windows operating system, popularizing desktop touchscreen monitors and displays on laptops that can double as tablets.
