Interactive flat-panel displays (IFPDs) are large-format touchscreens displays. They are like wireless presentation displays but offer built-in software for high levels of collaboration and brainstorming. The advanced touchscreen interactivity is perfect for all types of meeting spaces.
Meeting spaces using interactive flat-panel displays are more collaborative workspaces with improved convenience and higher-performing productivity. They are even great for huddle spaces. However, these displays can be more difficult to operate so it can present a learning curve for those who are not as tech-savvy. Not to mention some boards do not come with installed software, causing incompatibility issues later.
Interactive flat-panel displays are perfect for meeting spaces of various sizes looking to make the upgrade. IFPDs are for those who want to create connectivity not only between those in the office but among those remotely as well. With technology that allows for writing, editing, and other collaborative features, you can make any meeting more engaging and productive.
Collaborative workspaces are becoming more and more popular among meeting spaces and business organizations. Collaborative workspaces allow for brainstorming and idea creation. These devices also allow for secure and smooth discussion without the hassle of finding previous notes or sharing files on the device itself.
Huddle room solutions are becoming increasingly more popular. Huddle rooms are great for building teamwork and bringing coworkers together for an effortless organizational spirit. But it can be difficult to keep all your information easily recorded. IFPDs allow for flexibility and secure ways of teamwork but in a less formal environment.
High-performance is important for any collaborative meeting space. Nobody wants to write on a board that lags or wastes time trying to remember how to write out a word. With a high-performing IFPD, you can be sure that regardless of usage, your board will retain clarity and prove its durability.
Convenience is one of the hidden benefits of installing an IFPD. Outside of saving all work or notes done on the board, many of them use fewer cables for a neater appearance. You can simply walk into a room, plug in the device, and begin sharing with your team.

Factors to Consider
Learning curves can be difficult for some users. IFPDs can be highly complicated if you purchase the wrong one. They may not always be intuitive for the user and may even have functionalities you never use. Nothing is worse than wasting half of a meeting just trying to turn on the display! Thankfully, ViewBoards are easy to use and quick to learn. Forbes wrote an interesting article about when designers should choose intuitive vs. learned software systems. Making sure you choose a company that has your best interest in mind is important.
Troubleshooting is another big challenge for those who may not be tech-savvy. Some boards may require you to download certain software or use a certain browser, but it uses mysterious codes and keywords you’ve never seen before. ViewSonic provides a solution for this. From troubleshooting FAQs, online training courses, and contact services, you never have to face another IFPD problem again!
Incompatible software can be a huge issue if you’ve already made your purchase. Every IFPD has different requirements and compatibility. For example, maybe some only connect with laptops while others allow for mobile devices. For complete and easy collaboration, it’s important to double-check specs and installed software. So, if compatibility and versatile device usage is important for you, don’t worry!
