After dominating the education industry for decades, it comes as no surprise that projectors also make a big impact in corporate environments. Increasingly, projectors are utilised in office spaces to help presentations stand out.
A good business projector is a desirable addition to any office, they enable you to share your screen with an audience while keeping them engaged with your presentation or meeting.
Advances in projector lenses and the advent of short-throw projectors have allowed projectors to satisfy any office install requirement. They are no longer restricted on placement, but instead may be positioned close to the wall. With newer ultra-short-throw projector technology, image sizes from under a metre can still be relied on to produce image sizes up to and exceeding 100 inches.
Projectors are no longer the single-sided presentation tool they used to be, they have advanced significantly since then and now enable full collaboration. Facilitating interaction of this kind has transformed the way meetings can be conducted, involving the dynamic input of all parties.
Successful collaboration depends on image size. It is impossible to collaborate with someone at the back of the room if they can’t see the content displayed on the screen.
Projectors offer much larger image sizes, making them ideal for multi-purpose meeting rooms and collaborative working environments. Image sizes of up to 130” are not uncommon in today’s larger meeting rooms.
Today’s projectors are smaller and lighter than ever before. Often with inbuilt USB players or even SDS slots for PC-less presentation, these models are invaluable presentation tool for reps on the road.
With the capabilities of today’s projectors, you must understand what today’s projectors can do and when they should be used. Long gone are the days of overhead projectors or slide presentations, today’s projectors are rich with features that enable collaboration.
There are thousands of benefits to introducing a projector to the office. When looking for a reliable corporate projector, certain features stand out.
Here are our top 4 features needed in every corporate projector:
Projectors used for entertainment purposes can often rely on projecting in a dark and quiet room, reducing the brightness required and the quality of the built-in speakers.
Businesses projectors are required to operate in higher bright environments, not least to ensure employees are still able to take notes Projectors need to be unphased by ambient light and project a clear image on even the sunniest of days.
Blurry projectors can ruin any presentation, they look unprofessional and make it difficult to read and understand the content.
Every projector has a native resolution, this is the maximum number of pixels a projector can truly project. The native resolution affects many things, such as the compatibility of the projector and the computer working together and how sharp the image is.
The higher the projector resolution, the clearer the image will be and the easier it will be for employees and customers to see the content projected.
One of the main reasons for investing in a corporate projector is to showcase information on a larger scale. Whilst image size is important, it is also important to consider where everyone in the room will be. Most meeting rooms are designed to squeeze in multiple employees and it is important that everyone in the room, regardless of where they are sat, can see the content projected.
Compatible with most smart devices, the modern projector offers employees the chance to work collaboratively with the technology they are used to. BYOD features greatly on the majority of projectors, including the new Casio S400, the details for which below:
“The biggest shouting point for the S series is that it provides an inbuilt facility for wireless collaboration. Forty devices can connect to the projector all at once, including 4-way split screen”
This feature is ideal for brainstorming sessions and collaborative meetings. As an inbuilt feature, this helps save costs on third-party wireless collaboration solutions.
Installing a projector is often seen as an expensive option, while the outright cost can seem steep, Casio’s S400 has a light source lifespan of 20,000 hours with no lamp or filter changes.
Whatever you need to connect to, Casio’s F211’s range of connection ports ensures you have a solution. These projectors feature two HDMI ports, USB-A, LAN and RS232.
This projector is built for longevity. Much like the S400 range, the F211 range has a lifespan of 20,000 hours with no lamp or filter changes. The anti-dust design on both these projector ranges lessens brightness degradation.
