ProjectorReviews.com has released its 7th annual Education Projector Report. Designed to help educators, buyers, IT/AV managers and teachers pick the best projectors for their needs; the report focuses on a range of projectors that meet the varying requirements of K-12 classrooms and higher education lecture halls. This year’s Best In Classroom Award winners include projectors from Casio, Epson, Sony, Viewsonic and others. ProjectorReviews.com’s 2015-2016 Education Projector Report helps buyers sort through hundreds of projectors to find the best display for their classroom or multipurpose room. Canon, Casio, Epson, Hitachi, LG, Panasonic and Viewsonic all won awards in this year’s Education Projector Report. There are more than 500 projectors available on the market today, with at least half suitable for educational use. We looked at the latest small install, large venue, interactive and mobile projectors, analyzing their strengths to help education buyers select the best ones for their needs and budget. The report features a rundown of each projector’s features, capabilities and options in an easy-to-read format.

Our decades of experience in the AV industry helps us provide the analysis educators need to find the best projector for their classroom, auditorium and multipurpose room,” said Art Feierman, ProjectorReviews.com founder and editor of the report. Projectors come in families, with models differing only in resolution or whether one has wired vs wireless networking. Our 2015-2016 Education Projector Report describes the capabilities of 17 projectors. These 17 models represent projector families containing more than 100 different models. New in the 2015-2016 Education Projector Report are the latest interactive ultra short throw projectors from today’s top manufacturers. This is perhaps the fastest growing segment in the education projector market. “More and more classroom projectors now offer apps allowing for varying levels of interactivity. While most of the apps give the power to the instructor, we’re starting to see solutions that allow students to participate,” said Feierman. “We expect to see more of that being rolled out in the next generation of projectors, some of which will be announced at Infocomm 2015.” Art’s at Infocomm now. We’ll keep you posted on what he finds!
