Conclusion: Display or TV for business?

For professional use, displays are the first choice. They are specifically designed for professional use in the meeting room. With their long operating time and special features such as touchscreen functions and business app integration, they offer a high level of interactivity and productivity that far exceeds the possibilities of conventional TVs.

Particularly noteworthy is the connectivity of the displays, which allows content from a variety of devices to be easily transferred and displayed on multiple screens simultaneously. This facilitates communication and collaboration within the team and increases the efficiency and effectiveness of meetings.

In addition, displays offer excellent readability and visibility, regardless of the lighting conditions in the room, due totheir higher brightness andhaze level. Built-in dust protection ensures longer life, justifying a long-term investment in the new equipment. However, for commercial environments where entertainment is paramount, such as doctor's office waiting rooms, business TVs may well be a suitable choice. However, when efficiency, flexibility and customisability are key, professional displays are the ideal solution.
