Videos and Touch Displays become more common in Education – 3 Key Factors

At schools and in higher education, videos and Touch Displays are used as an instrument for exchanging ideas and for more engagement with the students. Streaming providers such as Netflix, Amazon Prime and Co. are no longer the only channels which are used every day. It has also become a part of school education.

An education video work report of 2017 shows that 99% of institutions work with teachers who routinely integrate videos into their classes. Students engage more while learning with videos, while potential employers expect them to leave education with the skills they need to participate in digital culture.

Even videoconferences are used for trainings and all universities are increasingly looking for new ways to use video in education. The 3 Modern key factors are:

1. Distance learning, with webinars or video-conferences

73% of universities offering distance learning videos for education. More than half of the universities use video for presentations and even interactive Touchscreens to interact with students at different locations.

In addition to distance learning, 65% of universities record their lessons, to be used mutliple times and from various locations. Statistics show that 38% of colleges want at least 25% of their classroom in digital form and even more would wish for more 47% in interactive and digital material.

With videoconferencing systems and touchscreens like the INF7530eAG with 75″ and 4k, universities can connect students who can not attend classes for geographical and personal reasons.

2.Videos lead to a better experience

Overall, many teachers feel that using videos make students more satisfied with their education, and up to 85% of students believe it can improve students’ performance.

Touchscreens make it easy to record videos, edit them on the run, pulish and distribute them and even interact on one single document. At the same time, 62% of universities use touchscreens for homework and 60% think that it will increase their skills and concentration. The reasons are as easy as posts are presented and created together in class and therefore result in better interaction with every single student.

3. Students do rarely create videos independently


The creation of interactive content is increasingly becoming an important part of teaching and lecturing.

Although it has become easier to create videos, surveyed universities report that less than 10% of students create videos as part of their classroom work and even fewer (8%) regularly create videos in class.

However, the numbers go up. This year, 21% of respondents said they think the majority of students are actively using video. The teachers and proffessors also suggest that the use of video and touchscreens in education will continue to increase in the coming years.

Instead of viewing videos and videoconferences seperately, it will simply be another way of communication and accessing content allover unis and schools.

Touch screen displays are team players: Top 5 accessories

When buying a touch screen display, it is important to carefully check every detail to ensure that the device is the best choice for your purpose. But even if the touch screen fulfils all requirements for your meeting room or classroom, it can be difficult to utilise it efficiently without accessories. Today we present the top 5 accessories for touch screens from InFocus.

1. LightCast Key

USB-AdapterThe InFocus LightCast Key is a simple USB adapter that allows activation of the touchscreen’s LightCast functions. As soon as a USB adapter is connected to the touch screen, you can wirelessly connect PCs, laptops and mobile terminals to the touch screen without needing to install any extra software.

If you are making a presentation on a Light Cast-compatible screen, the LightCast Key also provides easy access to the Internet via a built-in web browser.

2. Soundbar


A Soundbar is required for presentation rooms and lecture halls of larger sizes. With the Soundbar, you can enjoy clear and sharp audio. A speaker unit is approx. 67 cm long and can be fastened at the bottom of the screen.

3. LightCast Hub

wireless presentationWith a LightCast Hub, you can virtually organise a wireless presentation or lecture on each screen equipped with an HDMI interface. The hub can be easily connected without the need for additional software. If the touch screen is equipped with a USB interface, you can control the connected hub via the screen. With the LightCast Hub, you can view documents, photos and videos and access the built-in web browser, as well as record, store and share notes and drawings. The wireless hub is compatible with Windows 7 and above, Mac, iOS and Android.

4. BigNote Annotation Software

big note softwareBigNote Software transforms the touch screen into an interactive whiteboard. Writing, drawing, and making notes using pins, highlighters, forms and lines becomes child’s play. A Mail Client enables you to directly email all your ideas and project progress to participants of the meeting. Any files that are saved on the touch screen can be exchanged and shared by means of the Mondopads. Since BigNote software is an extremely extensive accessory, InFocus offers a 30-day free trial version to its customers to let them test all functions, down to the smallest details.

5. Wall Mount and Mobile Cart

A wall mount or mobile cart is likely the most non-descript accessory of the touch screen display, but at the same time, it is the most important.

mobile cart touchdisplaysThe mobile cart’s advantage is that the touch display screen can be freely set up in the room and later moved, if needed. The height of the cart can be individually adjusted to each situation and each lecturer. You can also adjust the slope by means of the swivel. The universal bracket can be combined with all touch screen displays.

If you want to affix your touch screen in a certain place, you can use a wall mount. The bracket can be laterally adjusted and tilted, allowing for the easy installation of cables. Like the mobile cart, the wall mount can be adjusted to fit each touch screen display.


All in all, each individual accessory has its unique advantages and special features. Each lecturer must decide for themselves which are essential for their work and which are just “nice-to-have”. Accessories facilitate personalisation and customisation of the touch screens in everyday situations and convert them into perfect aids for daily work.

How-to: Presentations on the touch screen – Part I

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 screen - how to use it

capacitive touch screen – how to use it

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.

tapping, rotating, contracting, wiping, zooming and turning by finger -easy and comfortable with the touch screen by InFocus

tapping, rotating, contracting, wiping, zooming and turning by finger -easy and comfortable

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.
