LED projectors



I've worked in the A/V field now for over 20 years and have installed, re-fitted, replaced, and fixed  many A/V related equipment.  The largest expense, and the most maintenance heavy piece of equipment is the LCD projector.

No matter where I go I am confronted by these dinosaurs and as always I've written memos on what to do about them that usually lands on deaf ears.  replace those LCD with LED projectors and you're organization will be happy, and a even have a bit more cash.  LED projectors are quite good, and can last 10 to 20 years.  Now of course the having a piece of equipment that last almost 20 years may not be the greatest.  After all you want your organization to have the latest pieces of equipment, bu a projector is just that a display device.  Hook it up to a computer and or a DVD player and you have an instant presentation device.  Include a smart board and have a multimedia 21st century blackboard.

Why am I talking about this?  Because organizations are slow to move on technology.  If it ain't broke don't fix it, but I would ask you one question and that is how much did you spend on bulbs this year.  When lamps are $100 to $300 don't complain about blowing lamps when they are used everyday by teachers, salesmen, and administrators.

LED solves all that.  Bright image, quality bulbs, and almost maintenance free.  Filter cleaning still is a must, but with less classrooms, and meeting rooms that have caustic material flying around the less dust gets trapped in those filters.  But make no mistake have a maintenance schedule for your projectors or they'll soon fail.

What types of LED's you ask?

The PRO Series 7, 2100 Lumens LED HD Projector is a good basic LED projector.  It only has 2100 Lumens so it may not be good for a room where daylight seeps through the windows and over powers the room.


Casio XJ-H2650: LED/Laser Conference Projector is a good one for the classroom


There are several out there but what you want is a projector that is nicely built and has a high lumens.  One needs to shop for the right one, but there are projectors for your organization that will be better then and less expensive to run.

Remember high lumen, portability or non-portability.  The potable LED projectors do have smaller lumens so beware. 

The Panasonic PT-RW430UW WXGA 3500 Lumens Integration Projector is another good one, but one that may be a bit expensive.

LED Projector Buyers guide.
I've worked in the A/V field for nThe life of an LED light source is seriously spectacular. Even with 40 hours of viewing per week, the average LED can run for an impressive 10-25 years, which is longer than the expected life of the product itself! Let us put in perspective how long 25 years really is in the world of technology. In 1985, the VHS was the standard in home recording, a really huge TV was only 32 inches, CDs were new, DVDs were only a dream, and high-definition was still 15 years away. Thus, because technology changes so much, the use of the same LED projector 25 years into the future is not really practical. But theoretically, it’s possible! - See more at: http://www.projectorreviews.com/projector-categories/led-projectors/#sthash.WpcGRxU1.dpuf
