The best interactive displays

Interactive touch displays are suitable for use in schools and meeting rooms and are operated with the finger or a stylus. Depending on the technology, several users can work on the display simultaneously.

The best digital signage displays

Digital signage displays are the modern solution for targeted digital advertising. A 24/7 release enables the use in continuous operation. Thanks to high luminosity, the displays can also be used outdoors. Internal content systems or external signage players with appropriate software ensure a smooth content supply.

The best video wall displays

The Videowall displays are particularly suitable for installation in a video wall due to their narrow frame. The displays can be easily connected to each other using daisy chain technology. A release for 24/7 continuous operation makes the displays particularly attractive. This allows you to present digital content around the clock.

The best classroom displays

The classroom displays replace the overhead projector as well as the TV cart and are an attractive addition for modern, digital teaching. The large screen diagonals ensure that the content is easy to read even in the back rows. Touch displays make lessons more interactive than ever.

Displays - The most frequently asked questions

Displays are becoming increasingly important in companies, educational institutions and in the public sector. Both the wide range of applications and the quick installation make displays an attractive alternative to the combination of projector and screen. Professional displays offer significantly more functions than their little brothers, the conventional TV sets. Moreover, in most cases they are brighter than TV sets and can be used regardless of the lighting conditions in the room.

What do I have to consider when choosing the resolution?

The preferred resolution should match the screen size and the content being displayed. Newer displays usually have a 4K UHD resolution. In some cases, Full HD displays are also possible. However, if you want to show high-resolution content in 4K, it is worth investing in a 4K display.

Since the number of pixels increases here, content can be displayed in detail and sharpness even on large screens .

Which displays are suitable for a video wall?

In a video wall, several displays are arranged next to each other to create a large overall picture. To avoid large black bars between the individual displays, care must be taken that the displays have a narrow frame.

It is also important that the displays communicate with each other. Daisy-chain technology makes it easy to connect the displays.

What are the differences between the touch technologies?

The most widely used touch technologies are infrared and capacitive. Whereas in infrared technology the stylus or finger is scanned via an infrared grid on the display surface, capacitive technology detects the pressure exerted on the display.

This is precisely sensed under the display surface by the tension on the surface and ensures an even more precise transfer of the touch to the display surface. Interactive displays with a capacitive touch surface are usually more expensive than displays with IR touch technology.

How bright should a display ideally be?

The required brightness of the display depends strongly on the application and the installation location. As a rule of thumb: If the display is also to be used in sunlight or out doors, at least 700 cd/m² are required, whereby a higher brightness is recommended for better recognisability.

When used in rooms with artificial lighting but without direct sunlight, 500 cd/m² is often sufficient. If the lighting conditions in the room can be regulated as needed and the light dimmed, 350-450 cd/m² are sufficient

Why are not all displays suitable for 24/7 continuous operation?

Displays for 24-hour useare equipped with particularly durable materials. These materials withstand the high stresses of massive heat generation in the unit.

A display should always be operated within the operating time release. Otherwise, irreparable damage to the unit may occur that is not covered by the warranty

How do I find a suitable holder for the display?

When choosing a display mount, consider the size and weight of your display. Check the VESA mounting points and make sure they are compatible with your display. Also consider whether you want to mount the display on the wall, on the ceiling or on a trolley.

For video walls, you can also use special multi-mounts that can hold several displays at once. You can find the right mount for your display at visunext.

What do I have to consider when choosing signage software?

When choosing a signage software solution, you should look for ease of use, adaptability to your needs and compatibility with your display types. Other important aspects are cost, customer support and whether the software has features such as scheduling and content management and supports interactive content. This is how you can successfully deliver digital advertising content.

Which connections should be considered when choosing a display?

When choosing a display, make sure they have connectivity options such asHDMI and DisplayPort for video and audio, DVI for older devices and USB-C for versatility . You should also ask about built-in USB hubs for additional connectivity. Specific requirements will depend on your devices and usage habits.

How can the displays be supplied with content wirelessly?

Displays can be supplied with content wirelessly via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or special technologies such as Miracast or AirPlay. In this case, the content is transmitted wirelessly from a device (e.g. computer, smartphone) to the display.

Some displays have built-in Wi-Fi, Miracast or AirPlay capabilities, while others require an external adapter. It is also important whether you want to access video conferencing systems wirelessly or use displays with interactive features.
