    Touchscreen question

    Hi Everyone,

    I have a question regarding interactive touch screens, we have just purchased 5 Genee 65" touch screens and put the first one up yesterday,
    everything is fine although the sound quality could be a little better, but the teacher says when he writes on the screen its not smooth curves
    it comes out a bit jaggedy (if that's a word).

    Is this a Genee problem or are all touch screen like this due to the IR ?? is there a way to improve it at all ??

    I have tried adjusting the configuration but the teacher says it didn't make much difference, if I remember right he
    had problems with his previous white board as well.

    A good quality touchscreen shouldn't be like that - ours don't It would be worth checking resolution of the laptop / computer matches that of the native res of the screen.

    Thanks for that I will have a look on Monday, they must be descent the unit were around £3k each if the resolution is matching then would that make a big difference ??? Its connected via HDMI so wouldn't it just take the resolution of the laptop ???

    It could make a difference. I imagine they are 1920 x 1080 if they're 65" ?

    If it's mirroring the laptop it's unlikely to be that res anyway. Might not make a big difference but it's worth just testing by using the touchscreen as a 2nd screen at its full res.

    Just had a read of the manual and there is no mention of changing the resolution.

    A quick look online and it shows the native res as 1920 x 1080. I'd be interested to see if that helps.

    After that it's I'm thinkers it's down to the 'sensitivity' - can't remember the term I'm looking for - dot pitch?

    Just seen the resolution myself but not sure the laptop will handle it, looking at mine it goes nowhere near but I suppose when the touch screen is attached I can set the resolution as per that screen.

    Most fairly recent chipsets should be able to output that res - at least for testing purposes. It will be an extended display and not mirror of course.

    Thanks for your help XiJ I will give it a try come Monday morning, if by default it takes on the laptops resolution that could well be the fault as I know I never changed it.

    Having worked with touchscreens for a fair while now, all of the above suggestions have some merit. Definitely check out the resolution, for dual screen operation most laptops will happily work at 1366 x 768. To get full HD then almost certainly you will have to output only to the screen, which most teachers don't like. Some Windows software on Win 7 or 8 can offer very smooth writing, search for Windows Journal, the screen if its any good, it should write very well. The software you are using could be poor, even Activinspire doesn't write too well, Smart Notebook does better. The Genee is at the budget end of touchscreen solutions so it uses cheaper touch components, therefore it's touch response isn't as good as some others, nevertheless is much better than a projector/whiteboard option.

    PM me if you want more detail.

    OK,
    Just plugged my laptop into the TV and the both connect at 1366 x 768 the only way I can get It to connect at 1920 x 1080 is to extend the desktop or have a single display (they won’t like that at all), does anybody know if there is a utility that can show both screens but in 2 different resolutions ???

    If your mirroring the laptop to the screen, then no. You'll need to only output to the screen.

    Am I right in thinking then if the screens resolution is 1920x1080 then that's a fixed native resolution (i.e. the screen will display other resolutions but not to its best), but to actually achieve this the laptop also needs to be configured so that the output of the laptop matches the resolution of the screen ??
