How to use the touch screen correctly
Clicking with the mouse, typing with the keyboard. This is what we have been used to for decades. The new generation of computers, smart phones or displays rely on the touch screen as the control element. But one touch screen is not the same as others. There are different types of touch displays with different functions, which can be operated individually. What is to bear in mind when using a touch screen with a finger? What kind of operating errors are lurking? How does the application with a pen work?
The capacitive Touch Display
Capacitive touch screens determine the position of the touch by changing an electric field. Electrodes in the corners of the touch panel produce a weak electric field. If at least one finger touches the touch screen, a part of the charge of the field is derived. Thus, the electric field will change. This change will be measured and the exact position of the finger will be determined in this way. Most of the InFocus devices work with this technique, which translates touches even more precisely, than resistive touch screens.
Touch screens offer advantages in application
Creating and moving texts, editing pictures and playing videos, all of this may be handled more easily with a touch screen than with a regular PC, because the computer mouse and the keyboard only function properly on the desk. The users of touch screens ave space in the workplace and also additional hardware costs.
No matter whether Mondopad, BigTouch or JTouch, our displays all are equipped with touch screen displays. We have optimized applications such as adding, activating, or removing documents for touch screen operations. The products of InFocus operate with the familiar multi-touch gestures, such as tapping, rotating, contracting, wiping, zooming and turning by finger or stylus pen. This makes the operation very easy and you receive an overview of all program windows similar to the Mission Control view. This allows users to navigate easily between different programs.
Our tips for easy operation:
- Test each touch screen before using it in a presentation.
- Practice: click, double-click, and swipe. Anyone who knows his touch display reduces the stress factor.
- For some applications, finger operation is not sufficient. Use a stylus pen as an additional control element.
- Work intuitively. Interaction with your content is easy and intuitive when using InFocus devices.
