What are the most compelling benefits of modern projection systems?

A few weeks ago an article here on dispatch discussed the benefits of cloud hosting. Today, we take a look at the benefits of modern day projection systems, as seen in the meeting and conference rooms of forward thinking businesses around the world.

They offer better collaboration

The modern projection system is a sharp departure from the overhead projector and white sheet setup used so much in the past. Due to logistical constraints this older setup often meant only one person could discuss and work on the points displayed on screen. Today, modern projection systems offer far better flexibility. As many as 7 people can seamlessly co-ordinate collaboration on a presentation, right on the screen, or from diverse devices wirelessly connected up. This has made brainstorming sessions in businesses today live up to the name, and made for far more stakeholder engagement.

They offer a plug and play approach

One of the real pain points of the older projection systems was the difficulty of linking up the systems with computers and other devices. Setting up often required the user spending as much as 10 minutes to setup the connection, and wait for drivers to get installed. This led to delays, disappointments and disinterested individuals during presentations. Screen resolution issues were common, and IT often got the call for help.

Modern projection systems, on the other hand, have changed all of this. Using them, cables are almost inexistent and the installation process is a breeze. It will only take a few seconds to link a device to the projection screen, regardless of operating system. This is due to the high tech connectivity options these systems offer. This means presenters in a meeting no longer have to get to the venue 30 minutes ahead of everyone else to ensure proper setup of devices to be used, and meetings are no longer interrupted by failed installations.

They offer crisp clear images

Whilst using a modern day projection system images and text are rendered in high definition. This makes it easy for participants to see what is being discussed, from wherever they are seated in the meeting. Older projection systems do not offer this functionality, and images and text are often blurry to people seated a bit further from the display unit. The images and text may even become unreadable when viewed at a certain angle.

Similarly, it is easier to manage brightness, contrast, and resolution on a modern projection system, thereby reducing glare. This is made possible by the high lumens levels, which make it easy to reduce or increase brightness as the occasion and environment demands.

Choice between LCD and DLP

Thanks to improvements in technology, businesses can now choose from a wider range of projection systems to matches their needs. LCD and DLP Projection are the main technologies today. A proportion of businesses go with DLP projection, as it offers greater colour accuracy. It is the projection technology of choice for businesses that need to work with graphics and colour-coded process diagrams. You can read more on LCDs and DLPs here.

These are some of the reasons more and more are ditching their older projection setups in favour of modern day technology.
