    Hi,

    I’m requiring some advice on acquiring a projector for work having conducted some research whilst obtaining two quotes.

    I’m fairly comfortable on areas of its workings (connectivity: we’re looking for HMDI/VGA(?); resolution: 1024x768; Ratio: 4;3; LCD as it will be used for presentations, documents rather than video; lamp usage seems good and hope to get a guarantee with our purchase) but clarity on a few points.

    Long throw or short throw? The two I’ve found are the former but the room we have is not prodigious so will long throw suffice or will I have to research short throw projectors? If I can find a tape measure at work I can provide measurements!

    Also, wifi connectivity? Practically, how does this work?

    Any advice much appreciated.

    Thanks

    I would look at some computer magazines or WHICH? [free at a library] for their recommendations.

    Wifi works through the laptop the projector is attached to.

    The most improtant thing is to train the users so they follow the shut down procedure - just turning it off will damage the bulb.
