Forecast for 2018: How digital innovations will influence our world of work and occupation

Companies all over the world undergo digital transformations. Or, at the least, they instigate such transformations. This process requires an appropriate corporate culture and, in most cases, collaboration with other companies.

But, at an incredible speed, digital innovations can destroy a company. Most CEOs feel obliged to go along with and to re-establish their companies anew at the market every year.

Forecast 2018 - Touch Displays


The digital transformation ranks at the top of many organisational priorities for the year 2018, but such a global matter requires a more complicated solution than merely implementing a couple of specific technological tools.

InFocus has consciously utilised its strengths and relies on close cooperation and rapid exchange of ideas. The Huddle Room and its accessories should grow as one of these digital innovations.

Trends of the digital innovations

  • Customer experience: All roots for business success are said to be borne by the customer. To communicate a general idea of a brand and experience to the customer, it is necessary to provide them with the right data on the right platform at the right time.
  • Optimised intelligence: A rough overview of the customer’s intentions and desires is no longer enough, especially in the age of artificial intelligence. Now companies can track the buyers’ behaviour across multiple platforms. Thus, they must be able to recognise, respond and communicate it in a timely and appropriate manner.
  • Operational performance: The Cloud concept has expanded more and more along with increasingly faster bandwidths and improved technical facilities. Service providers offer memory space on their servers as well as online services for a fee. This gives companies more financial and operational efficiency, since they can access their data from everywhere. Now, the core matter is not only the provision of data and ideas, but rather efficient delivery and automation.

Huddle Room JTouch

With the Huddle Room and the JTouch INF4030 perfectly suited to this need, “InFocus” has not only managed to establish itself on the market with the most important data, but has found a way of ensuring fine and precise collaboration with internal and external partners. The third indispensable requirement of establishing digital innovations is to be fulfilled by the optional ConX Cloud solution that can be activated via any computer with connection to Internet.

JTouch Touch DisplayAll in all, the future of the digital transformation is oriented at both technology and people’s needs. With a Huddle Room, you can quickly and flexibly connect and manage the entire assortment of Cloud and local applications and data, as well as people’s connections.

Every year, original digital innovations will dominate the market in a new manner and, thereby, outshining old technologies. Secure a Huddle Room equipped with the INF4030 for yourself – and for efficient and close cooperation with your partners – so as not to be left behind!

The entire InFocus team wishes you and your company a merry Christmas and a successful, innovative year in 2018!

Visual communication – Interconnecting in the future

Our technology solutions enable efficient collaboration in real-time. The work done in companies becomes more visual, faster, and simply better. We have reported on this several times. But how useful are our solutions actually? Who uses our hardware and software yet? Many millions of people profit daily – both directly and indirectly – from our products that enable and perfect visual communication. Certainly you personally, too! You do not believe that? We will show it to you…

InFocus products for visual communication in the White House

Anyone who believes that only companies – no matter whether small and medium-sized enterprises or large corporations – communicate reliably across the globe thanks to InFocus, is wrong. Not only in business, entrepreneurs and employees use our products for visual communication.


Would you have thought that InFocus is also the number one supplier of display processors in the military sector? Even the US Army is among our customers! Also, private security companies and the management of public facilities rely on our software and hardware for real-time monitoring or threat analysis. For some of the world’s largest cities, airports, seaports and public transport networks, InFocus technology takes over live traffic management, including routing and control.

In addition, world-wide leading supply and telecommunication companies also perform their network monitoring by means of our marvels of technology; thus, thanks to effective process management they are able to react quickly and effectively and avoid possible loss of service. Even many of the world’s largest banks, exchanges and financial institutions handle their business processes via IT products from InFocus. And not even the highest power center in the US – the White House in Washington D.C. – gets along without InFocus technology.

A technological revolution in the field of education – Use the JTouch INF6500EAG Touchscreen Monitor in school and university

Technology is subject to constant change. Ten years ago, the desktop PC celebrated its entry into the classroom and today the focus is on cloud services and mobile learning applications at school and at university.

We take a look at the technological revolution in the education sector and, with the touch screen monitor JTouch INF6500EAG, we present a modern tool for teaching.

touch screen monitor

Public study fuels the use of touch screen monitor and Co.

In a general survey in education centers on the topic of education technology, 29% of teachers estimated that the desktop PC will not remain a technology used in the education sector for the next ten years. The teachers gave equally few survival chances to non-interactive projectors, traditional projection software and CDs and DVDs as well as their playback devices.

If the teachers were able to decide which technology was no longer to be found in the study room or classroom, the majority would choose learning management systems, mobile devices and social media. Obviously these technical innovations have a counterproductive effect on the mediation of learning contents, as they might be distracting.

The respondents expressed the general incompatibility between applications, hardware and data needed as the biggest obstacle to the future integration of new technologies into the learning environment. They therefore suggest minimizing restrictions – such as in wireless usage or storage space – and cabling.

However, 97% of respondents are convinced that technology will play a positive role in education in the future. In the opinion of the interviewees, 3D applications, interactive touch projectors and programs, cloud services and the streaming of learning content will be particularly significant.

Reasons for the technological revolution in the education sector

Schools and universities should rethink when it comes to the use of technology for education. Teachers may combine modern applications and devices – such as the touch screen monitorwith traditional learning methods.

Just as the content of the teaching changes with time, the technologies for knowledge transfer should also be oriented towards modern development. This is because technical novelties are often a relief for everyday learning, they encourage learners to actively participate and are therefore positively integrated by them.

The touchscreen monitor JTouch INF6500EAG for seminar rooms and classrooms

The JTouch INF6500EAG touch-screen monitor has a 65-inch display, so that contents may be displayed in a comfortable size. Thanks to the non-reflective surface, a clear image is obtained, even in very bright light conditions. The bright and colorful presentation, even in large bright conference rooms, will impress pupils and students.

The slim, frameless design and the effortless control will also convince users. The HDMI and USB ports are located on the front of this touch screen monitor, making them easily accessible. The touchscreen monitor can be connected to a PC, Mac or Chromebook by means of these ports as well as via VGA or Component Video.

Content will be displayed in high resolution on the monitor. Users may add an interactive whiteboard to the JTouch INF6500EAG and run Android apps via the optional Android-based whiteboard module. This facilitates an easy, profitable communication for pupils and students, which, not least, strengthens cooperation.

The touch function of the LCD screen invites to collaborate and spring into action. The capacitive touch function may be controlled intuitively. Thereby pupils, teachers and students equally present sharp, bright and also interactive content – namely not depending on the light conditions.
