What brightness level do I require?
Brightness with all digital projectors is universally measured in ANSI Lumens. The brightness level required in a standard size classroom can range considerably, depending on the screen size and ambient light. Traditionally a brightness level or 3000 ANSI Lumens or more is sufficient for a standard screen size like 90" to 100" in a lit room. Your viewing environment will be a major factor in determining how bright your projector must be. A lower brightness can still be used, however the ambient light in the room may have to be lowered or the screen size reduced to ensure a clear image. The Larger the screen and the higher the ambient light is in the room the more powerful the projector will have to be.

What Resolution is right for me? [top]
A native resolution is essentially a measurement for the number of pixels being projected. Usually this is represented in a number of pixels width to height e.g. 1280 pixels width and 800 pixels high. Projectors can accept signals higher and lower of the native resolution but will have to convert or compress the signal to display in the native resolution.

The most common measurements for education projectors are
SVGA - 800x600 - Great large font e.g. basic PowerPoint presentations
XGA - 1024x768 - Basic Powerpoint and video presentations
WXGA - 1280x800 (HD) - Enough detail to handle smaller text or HD video e.g. Spread Sheets
WUXGA - 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) - The most detail great with full HD movies small text or even fine CAD drawings.

Are there Portable models available? [top]
All projectors can be transported fairly easily, though the size and weight of a projector will limit the amount of brightness it can produce. So for a large venue situation with 100 people you would want a powerful machine with over 4000 lumens brightness to achieve a large image. While smaller 6 people groups can have a little pocket sized projector. There are a few classes of projectors as below:

  • Less than 0.5kg - Pico Projector (limited to less than 1000 lumens brightness good for 2-10 people audience)
  • Less than 1kg - Mini Projector (usually 1000 to 2000 lumens brightness suitable for around a dozen people audience)
  • 1-2kg - Portable projector (Range from 2000 to 3000 lumens and can handle a classroom sized audience around 30)
  • 2-3kg - Multipurpose (3000 - 4000 lumens fine for up to 50 people groups)
  • 3kg+ - Large Venue (Larger more powerful models 4000 lumens to 10,000 when you have conference centre)

What do the PC Free and Wireless features mean ? [top]
PC Free and Wireless functions are two relatively new technologies to be found with presentation projectors.

PC Free allows the unit to project a presentation, image or some video files without the need to connect a computer or any other AV device. The correctly formatted files can be loaded onto a USB flash drive or SD Card, which is then connected directly to the projector. The projector can only read some file types and therefore a standard PowerPoint presentation must be correctly formatted into a projection file. Software comes with many of these projectors that can do this for you. PC Free is a great option for teachers that have many sessions or presentations a day and do not wish to carry around both a projector and a notebook computer.

Wireless connectivity allows the projector to connect to a computer without the need for cabling. Wireless typically transmits at a low frame rate so is only suitable for presentations and photo's, not for motion (video/movies)

Is there anything else to look out for? [top]
If you plan on installing a projector in the ceiling then 'throw distance' will become a factor to be aware of. Many projectors will require around 3.2m distance for a 2 metre wide image, but this can vary so let us know if you need a specific distance for a current image size.

Can I order using a Purchase Order ? [top]

Yes. Once you have decided on the products you require, you may attach your schools offical purchase order to an email and send to sales@gmmultimedia.com.au . Please ensure your purchase order includes billing and delivery instructions plus is signed by an authorised person. Payment terms for most education facilities is 30 days, however restrictions may apply depending on order size and trading history.
