The Circular Screen for a Smart Table
With the continuous advancement of display technology, display forms are gradually diversified. Special-shaped screens also include circular screens and square screens. This article will mainly focus on the analysis of the market potential of circular screens. The circular screen was first proposed by AUO and mass-produced related products. A few days ago, BOE also mass-produced a 23.6” circular screen, and made some upgrades in brightness/resolution and other specifications. For example, the brightness can reach 1500nits, and the operating temperature range -20~70℃, suitable for semi-outdoor and outdoor scenes.
The following lists 4 types of LCD circular screens that have been used in scenarios:
- Dining tables in coffee shops/restaurants/bars:
Chance recently launched a 23.6” circular screen for use in dining tables in coffee shops, bars, restaurants, etc. Customers can Realize the touch menu on the table, play games in the gap before serving meals, and interact with other table customers through the display screen, which not only increases convenience, but also allows customers to pass the boring time.
