Not all business projectors are made equal. However, depending on the situation, you may not need to hire the latest, greatest model with all the bells and whistles. Or, in this case, lumens and pixels.
Are you planning to show still images, spreadsheets or a PowerPoint presentation in a small boardroom of up to 20 people? Consider keeping it simple. Use a standard entry-level data projector such as the Sanyo PLC-XW55. Alternatively, try the NEC M230x. Indeed, Sanyo’s 2000 ANSI lumens solution provides the picture clarity you crave in a package you can carry.
A data projector you can use on the go
An ultra-portable projector wouldn’t necessarily be your first choice as a permanent fixture in a large corporate space. However, the compact and lightweight PLC-XW55 is absolutely ideal for sharing around the office. Alternatively, you can take it to external business meetings and other off-site events. Measuring 330 x 237 x 92 mm and weighing just 2.6 kg, the unit is easily transported in its included compact carry case. It allows you to deliver presentations on a small projector screen or wall no matter where you are.
The projector doesn’t require any cooling down time. You can disconnect the power cord and pack away the whole unit immediately following your presentation. This is particularly useful for running back-to-back presentations in different rooms or buildings.
A data projector that excels at the basics
When it comes to presenting short internal company updates or employee training sessions, for example, projector cost and convenience are likely to be high priorities. That said, the PLC-XW55 data projector’s 200-watt UHP lamp and 2000 ANSI lumens output still offers quality colour reproduction and brightness. In addition, this model features XGA 1024 x 768 resolution and 400:1 contrast ratio. In other words, they are display specs that won’t let you down in those small presentation settings.
Sanyo’s entry-level data projector excels at Excel and other basic data display via PC or Mac (DVI-VGA adaptor required, available on request). However, it can certainly accommodate video applications as well. The PLC-XW55 incorporates VGA, S-Video, Composite and RS232 connections. It is compatible with DVD players, VHS players and even games consoles for some after-hours team building. It all adds up to a portable and versatile projector solution any SME can rely on.
