Multi-User Interactive Video Walls

     Understanding the Touch Screen Video Wall

The touch screen video wall opens up Pandora’s Box of interactive technology with its countless uses and multiple adaptations. Company’s may automatically assume that they want the touch screen video wall to deliver their message to people, but there are a few things that need to be hashed out to make sure that the touch screen video wall is not only the best choice, but that it lives up to the expectation of the user.

You have to establish the message that you want to give people. A touch screen video wall is an impressive piece of technology so you want to be sure that the content and graphics that you choose to showcase are up to par with this level of awesome. If you let your message fall flat pretty much all you have is a really massive screen with no payoff.

Touch Screen Video Wall Options

Multi-touch has taken the precedent over dual-touch for a lot of displays, but it’s not always necessary. For instance, if you plan to use your touch screen video wall for simple gestures then dual-touch will do. However, if you want to have multiple users engage in the interaction of information multi-touch is the way to go. A common choice for a touch screen video wall is the IR based touch screen because it can manage 2-32 touch points which allows individuals or groups to interact on the screen. Plus, it includes the movements of Windows 7 and Windows 8.

There are three things that you really have to be careful of when it comes to a touch screen video wall. They are: glass, installation, and mounting. If any of these areas fail then your execution is lost because of a damaged screen.

When it comes to glass you have to consider what type you should use. Some common choices are:
• Plastic substrates—Easier to handle, but prone to scratches
• Lexan or MR10-Flexable properties make it easier to break, but can be easily scratched
• Acrylic—Harder surface and more difficult to scratch

The decision of which glass properties to use comes down to the need for scratch protection and the comfort level of handling glass.

Installing the components of the touch screen video wall is just as important. The inside of the monitor is a compilation of fragile odds and ends that require the proportional spread of weight. In fact, the LCD wiring and the internal glass is protected by an extremely thin piece of tin. Weight that is put on the bezel can cause the screen to dysfunction and the entire project to collapse.

Mounting is something that should be on the forefront of your mind when choosing a touch screen video wall. You should know before you even begin the project if your touch screen video wall will be place on an existing surface or if a new construction is in order. This will greatly determine how to prepare the structure for the display. In order to securely mount the display you have to have appropriate hardware and supports to make sure that it stays in place.

A touchscreen video wall can be the answer you are looking for if you want to take your vision to the next level. However, it is critical to have a solid plan from start to finish to guarantee that the display is a success all the way around.
