Networked projectors and displays have come a long way– how do we take the next step and get even more out of a school’s connected AV gear?
There is a lot more to laser phosphor projection technology than economy and convenience surrounding TCO (total cost of ownership).
The current generation of projectors can make it easy to turn just about any space on campus – from a hallway alcove to something that used to be a janitor’s closet – into a productive teaching zone.
Most new projectors aimed at college and university classrooms, lecture halls and auditoriums can quickly and easily connect to the institution’s wired data network.
Getting the right equipment for the right space starts early– when the IT staff and administrators put together the school’s strategic plan and annual capital request.
The detail possible with 4K projectors is becoming a must-have for certain classes– particularly in science classrooms and labs.
It’s shaping up as a technological battle royale, but the fight between electronic whiteboards and projectors could determine how a generation of college students are taught.
The days of standing in front of a classroom full of college students with a blackboard behind you and a handful of chalk dust are long over.
