At 98 inches, the ViewSonic IFP9850 4K Ultra HD Display is probably one of the largest monitors with a touchscreen on the market. Think of it as a giant tablet with 20-point touch and a surface area roughly equivalent to four 50-inch television sets.
Although aimed primarily at schools and businesses, it could also prove useful for serving interactive multimedia content to a sizeable live audience - think demonstrations, events, conferences etc.

The display also features two 10W speakers (plus a 15W subwoofer) and a fully-fledged embedded penta-core thin client that runs on Google’s Android 8 OS with 3GB memory and 16GB storage.
Viewsonic offers a 3-year limited warranty on parts, labor and backlight, plus onsite warranty, all for much less than what you’d pay for a comparable 98-inch TV, like the Sony XBR-98Z9G or the Samsung QN98Q900RBFXZA (granted both are 8K models). Upgrade options include a display stand card (AKA trolley), a slot-in PC and a wireless module.
When it comes to connectivity options, the IFP9850 offers a plethora of I/Os; we counted three audio ports, seven USB ports, four HDMI slots, one GbE LAN port, one VGA and one RS232 serial connector.
Note, the display stands at 1.32m high, weighs about 100kg and consumes 400W in use.
