Although projectors and interactive whiteboards or interactive flat panels are ideal for classrooms, when it comes to school halls, then trying to view information on a whiteboard or display screen may not be an option.
School halls or sports hall that accommodate up to 300 people may well benefit from a large 3m electric projector screen and suitable ceiling mounted projector.
Sapphire supply high quality, yet cost effective projector screens available in 16:10, 16:9, 4:3 and 1:1 aspect ratios. A firm favourite with schools, academies, colleges and universities, Sapphire electric screens come with an RF hand held remote control and an inline wall switch, just in case the remote is misplaced. And for added peace of mind, Sapphire have a 3 year warranty as standard.
As more projector manufacturers introduce laser projectors into their portfolio, this means that no replacement projector bulbs are needed, thus saving both on replacement bulbs and maintenance costs.
When choosing both a projector screen and projector, do ensure that you have compatible aspect ratios and it is advisable to check with your IT department. Most projector manufacturers have projection calculators on their websites, so you can check the best image size. Sapphire recommend a 3m screen giving a viewing size of 3010 x 1881mm (length by height) for the widescreen16:10 and 3050 x 2286 for the 4:3 video format.
