Designing a top examination centre for students
This prestigious university had the need to provide a top examination centre.
The end user contacted Mansart Corporate: A Romanian design firm who oversaw developing a digital examination center integrated with the design of the furniture following all the requirements of the University.
Students would use a touch screen monitor during the exams. The monitor needed to be foldable to optimize the desk space and make it more versatile. Furthermore, a privacy filter was required to limit the horizontal viewing angle of the monitor to preserve students’ privacy.
The result: a manual folding 12 inches touch monitor with privacy filter
This is where Mansart Corporate and Albiral started its cooperation that resulted in a 12 inches touch screen, manual folding monitor, that could be embedded in a wooden furniture. The monitor provided a synchronized internal tray, so when it was open covered remained levelled with writing desk. The monitor was personalized with the logo of the university at the back.
Mansart specifically defined the end user needs and Albiral developed a monitor to respond to these specific requirements: space optimization, maintenance free, easy to instal, HDCP compliant, touch with privacy filter.
More than 400 monitors were delivered for this examination centre.
The monitors are built in powder coated steel and the screen rises and leans manually being folded inside the desk with the screen facing down. They provide a 50.000-hour industrial panel, 2 DVI-HDCP compliant inputs, touch screen and a privacy filter.
The RAL was chosen by the end user and a logo was added at the back of the monitors.
