    Got a bent 55" touch screen - it's okay but staff miss the freeze functionality of all things, and I think it's too small...

    Freeze function is something the CleverLCD's lack as well The way around this is to use extended desktop but then you lose interactivity on the second screen (your large touchscreen....). Kinda pointless

    Hardly any of our teachers here use it, so it isn't really a function I look for when buying our equipment!

    Okay - so in our IT room we have 2 TVs replicating the teachers machine - teacher puts up a powerpoint - then wants to actually use her PC for more then displaying the ppt during the lesson. How do your staff do this?

    some of our staff moaned about it, others worked around it and now probably wouldnt use it even if it was a feature because they've found other ways to work.....

    freeze screen wouldnt be the be all and end all when purchasing for me. The product has other benefits......

    Clearly as I brought it, it's not the be all and end all, the displays interactivity far outweigh this issue - but it cannot be a hard one to implement. You say your staff have found other ways to work - only way I can suggest to them is to take up another student PC or bring their laptop. Both pretty crap.

    They don't? They teach - they don't have a need to fiddle around with their PC whilst they have a class full of kids!

    When i spoke to the CleverLCD product manager at Sahara about it he said the issue was with a graphics chip which doesnt support freeze function which will be fixed sometime in 2013. Take from that what you will.....

    So an IT teacher, using a PC in an IT lesson is fiddling around? How do they access impero? how do they access other work for students to do? how do they demo one on one with students? We ask them to keep emails open during a lesson as a means of instant site wide communication...

    How can you expect an IT teacher to not use a PC and software to teach? I don't call that fiddling :/

    I know they can not display the PowerPoint etc and then switch off the monitors - but the freeze screen is a really well used standard tool here on projectors - it is just surprising the screens don't have it.
