Affected by the COVID-19 epidemic at the beginning of this year,the concept of telecommuting was a mess. IN-Display interactive flat panel displays with functions such as remote collaboration and video conferencing was even more popular during the epidemic. What opportunities does the interactive flat panel display face, and how should the Thinkpanel seize the opportunities?
The time is right and the people are harmonious
Time goes back to February 3, 2020, which is the first day of the resumption of work in China. According to the statistical data of Alibaba's application software, more than 200 million people started online at the same time on this day. The grand resumption of work was reported by the major media. For a time, the argument that "the remote office is coming" came to an end. A national "epidemic warfare" forced enterprises to adopt mobile office methods, so that remote collaborative office tools, including interactive touh screen, quickly gained wide public recognition, which is expected to promote the entire industry to develop in-depth.
The remote office outlet created in a special period and the media-driven assistance, combined with the relevant policy of the country that has been actively promoting the "emphasis on digital work methods" in recent years, can provide an interactive flat panel that can be digitized, intelligent, and remote video conferences It has the advantage of "time, place and people".
New opportunities: online office breaks out, and digital chemicals are favored
The general trend is to understand the opportunities, and for interactive flat panel, this remote office brings two of the most obvious opportunities:
1) Due to the isolation requirements during the epidemic, the local meeting rooms are more transferred to online meeting rooms, and the increase is considerable.
The data shows that from January 29th to February 6th, the Tencent meeting is undergoing resource expansion every day. The average daily expansion of cloud hosts is close to 15,000, and the total expansion of more than 100,000 cloud hosts in 8 days involves a total of more than one million Nuclear computing resources investment; Dingding urgently expanded 10,000 cloud servers, with the largest number of downloads in the entire network: Huawei Cloud added an average of 5,000 new companies each day and undertook 80,000 meetings.
In the field of interactive flat panel,by using Thinkpanel education softwareIN-Display collaboration software that can provide online conference services have also "benefited greatly." According to the official data of the Interactive flat panel from February 3 to February 9, the IFP cloud conference supports more than 2W + sessions In the remote conference on February 4th, the number of participants in the conference has reached 13,000+, and the duration of the conference exceeded 1.1 million minutes. All this means that with the increasing demand for online meeting rooms, how to quickly build online meeting rooms will become a new opportunity for the interactive display market.
2) In the era of cloud office, "professional" equipment including video, audio, machine hearing and vision, and networked master control equipment is inevitable.
The remote online office will inevitably require the interactive flat panel to provide a sufficiently good remote collaboration function. For example, the meeting IFP needs to be able to achieve a clear and smooth video conference screen and sound quality, without stuttering, file and data sharing is convenient and fast, and screenwriting is synchronized in different places. The equipment can be networked, centralized control. and many other functions to ensure that the remote office can meet or exceed the experience and efficiency of the offline office.
Besides, since the online work has been resumed for many days, many remote collaboration tools have crashed due to the influx of users. Also, many users vomited on Weibo to use remote collaboration tools and screen errors occurred. Difficult to use, these all mean that under the new trend, specialized equipment that can provide more comprehensive remote collaboration functions, as well as products with certain technical accumulations that can solve technical problems will be favored by the market.
Imperative: Build a cloud + open platform to expand industry informatization
many companies in the IFP industry have smelled the new opportunities brought by the new situation, and have created a cloud + open platform, and transferred solutions from focusing on office digitalization to the industry's overall informationization. To win the opportunity.
1) Build a cloud + open platform to create a "friendly circle"
During the epidemic, due to the outbreak of online meeting room demand, people are more concerned about cloud offices that can provide online remote document collaboration, task/person management, instant messaging, audio and video conferencing, etc., compared to the offline device-side Functional devices and software, but the increase in cloud services does not mean that "professional" devices such as interactive flat panel are exiting the remote collaborative market. On the contrary, interactive display companies must consider integrating cloud technology into their development strategies and redeploying Offices, conference rooms, and even homes, among other "working environments".
And the addition of cloud technology can also effectively help interactive flat panel analyze and feedback user big data in the cloud, guide the development of product performance, technology, functions, etc., thereby providing more humane and smarter products Win the opportunity.
