Creating a productive workspace at the office begins with the monitors you choose for your employees. Giving them the option of a bigger computer monitor with greater visual clarity and depth can offer businesses several benefits. By selecting the right technology for your workspace, you can keep users focused on their work, not logistical distractions, and keep everyone more productive and more comfortable.
Here are some considerations for creating a modern workspace with the right monitor for your employees:
Larger Monitors Bring More Applications
Large-format displays allow employees to simultaneously work with multiple applications on one desktop. This type of monitor can help several types of professionals — from financial staff to graphic designers to programmers — who can use the added screen real estate to boost productivity and create more efficient workspaces. Think of the programmer who can now open multiple development tools side-by-side or the artist who’s able to seamlessly move from composition to layout.
Additionally, selecting the right type of screen in terms of size and aspect ratio can help your employees’ morale and eye health. Because different displays can offer varying aspect ratios, brightness levels and response rates, selecting monitors isn’t necessarily a one-size-fits-all operation. Knowing how to tailor some of these characteristics or accommodate specific jobs can help reduce eye strain and improve ergonomics.
In order to figure out what types of monitors will be best for different applications, investigate the characteristics of HD and LED display technologies to see what types will suit various applications.
The longer life cycles of enhanced displays is also a benefit from a cost perspective. While they might demand slightly more upfront capital, your organization won’t be swapping out monitors as often, thus saving money in the long run.
An Immersive Experience
Curved monitors give users a broader and more natural range of view, maintaining clarity and color depth for a larger area. The human field of view naturally arcs along a curve, so this monitor format will display images with minimal distortion and maximum clarity, no matter where they’re located along the screen.
Size matters, too: A 49-in. curved monitor creates the visual real estate equivalent to a pair of 27-in. monitors running side-by-side: an effective increase from a 22:9 aspect ratio to 32:9. These monitors offer a more immersive experience that lends itself to several use cases, from media editing to viewing spreadsheets.
Executives in some industries are fond of these immersive monitors because they can view comprehensive data while still doing their daily work. The large viewing screen not only lets users zoom in on fine details, it also increases the peripheral viewing experience, enhancing overall visibility. These capabilities make curved monitors ideal for those handling multiple, complex streams of work, high-definition image and video renderings, or intensive animation and rendering projects.
Benefits of Streamlined Connectivity
Beyond display quality, it’s important to consider connectivity when evaluating monitors for today’s modern workspace. As displays evolve to include more integrated connections, and technologies like Samsung DeX emerge on the market, employees can create an almost-cable free desk that ties into a seamless workflow. USB Type-C and Thunderbolt give users the option for faster and more secure data transfer speeds.
For employees who spend time away from their desk, the DeX docking station can also expedite data transfer and centralize document access. Having a dock that connects a smartphone to a mouse, keyboard and monitor to create a desktop-like experience can reduce the need for extra wires or even paper within a workspace, reducing clutter and enhancing the workspace.
Monitors in the Contemporary Workplace
When planning your hardware budget, take a step back and focus on your standard computer monitor, and compare them against the current monitor market. After all, creating a productive workspace starts by deploying one of the top monitors available on the market that meets your business and technology requirements.
Before a single purchase is made, it’s important to understand the precise needs of each team, any special accommodations necessary for the office or the individual, and the capabilities and requirements of available hardware and software. Buying too small a monitor will hamper performance, while buying large format displays without the appropriate graphical hardware may reduce performance. Armed with the right information, you can choose the right displays for your team and optimize efficiency and employee satisfaction.
