Securing Buildings News

One use in particular is educating the public on the viability of “green” buildings while making the content interactive. Answering the questions, “Why did the building owner decide to utilize “green” building products and how is that benefiting our environment?” What is the energy saving benefits of using “green products”? This technology allows the public to easily interact with historical and live building data.

Today, many hospitals and building owners are utilizing the touch screen technology as a way for the public to navigate large facilities. For example, type in your doctor’s name and get a detailed map of where the office is and how to get there. A few facilities have taken it to the next level and provide printable maps directly from the kiosk.

A major US Corporation is using these large format LCD’s with CPU’s to monitor and manage enterprise-wide mission-critical infrastructure equipment, including thousands of power, environmental, and life/safety devices. Using large format LCD’s allows the corporation to display entire building systems on one centralized monitor, and eliminates the need for multiple smaller monitors.

Other uses include: data center display, donor recognition, museum displays, public kiosks, digital signage and self-service kiosks.

An important thing to keep in mind when considering using large format LCD’s with touch is to use the appropriate touch technology for your application. Many manufactures use inferior touch technology designed to use on small monitors, this causes unfavorable results. Our company provides products that utilize optical touch technology developed by NextWindow Ltd. a leading designer and developer of optical touch sensors touch assemblies for integration into manufacturers' display models and is the best option for large format touch screens.
