How to Choose a Business Projector for Wireless Presentation

Make an informed choice for your small meeting room

Choosing a projector for wireless presentations is a tricky task. The right choice can ramp up communication and collaboration; enhancing productivity. A poor selection can mean the projector gets little use, becoming another dusty addition to the office equipment ‘graveyard’. Here are the critical questions to ask, if you are looking for a projector to do wireless mirroring for:


  • a meeting room suitable for 6 - 20 people

  • a transmission distance of less than 5 meters
  • Get Ready!

    Consider what’s involved before you can commence wireless mirroring.


  • How long does it take to set up?

  • Do you need to install additional software in your smart device, before you can start wireless presentations?
  • Do you have to worry about compatibility between your wireless dongle and the projector?
  •  

    With traditional projectors, setting up wireless connection can be time-consuming and annoying - often taking about 15 minutes – and may even need IT support. Consider a smart projector, which has an Android-based system and supports internet connectivity; set up takes about 2 minutes and the smart user interface guides you through the process step by step. It’s just like using your smartphone, so everyone will find it easy to use and understand.

    All Set?

    If a projector is hard to use and has limited functions, you won’t get great use from it.


  • Check if your choice of projector will support all devices and platforms.

  • What about switching presenters? Is it easy? How many steps are required? Do you need to switch modes and select the settings every time?
  • What happens if the Wi-Fi connection fluctuates? Does the projector have a hotspot mode?
  • Do you want to be able to surf the internet on the projector, in addition to wireless presenting?
  •  

    Switching devices and presenters during wireless presentations can be a very ‘clunky’ process, interrupting flow and whittling away valuable meeting time. With a smart projector, you can change presenters or devices in one easy step. And that’s just the start; access files in the cloud, such as google drive, host video conferencing, use skype and watch YouTube. And if the Wi-Fi connection drops out, don’t worry - the hotspot mode means your wireless presentation can keep on keeping on.

    Keep Going

  • Consider the maintenance your choice of projector will require.

  • Are firmware updates easily available OTA (over-the-air)?
  • How much power does it consume? Is it eco-friendly?
  • Will the wireless dongle be a problem? Is it likely to be lost or damaged?
  •  

    When you choose a smart projector, with a smart system, maintenance is minimal. No danger of lost or easily damaged dongles, like those plugged into the external surface of a traditional projector. Also, the firmware and apps can be easily updated via OTA. To top it off, green features are a feature of the design. With advanced power control, you save power and optimise image performance simultaneously. Further, the Lamp Save Mode can extend lamp life by up to 50%.
     


    Make the most of your wireless presentations. Make your meetings easier and more effective. Choose a projector which is easy to set up, easy to use and easy to maintain.
