About Wired Networking and Networking Protocols
The trend is to have schools and districts networked. There are a number of obvious advantages I will shortly mention. Let’s start though by saying that other than the pocket projectors many of the rest in this report either have wired networking built in, or there are alternative models in the same series that do offer wired networking. If you need it, you shouldn’t have any trouble finding projectors that offer it, that match your needs in terms of other features and costs.
Some projectors will allow presentations over the network, that’s accomplished one of several ways, which may even rely on media players on board in the projector.
Wired networking means command and control. It normally also means monitoring. That is, a network administrator can typically see if a projector is on or off, if working correctly or not, how many lamp hours before replacement, etc. Some of the smarter projectors go a step further in that they may alert the network administrator by email or notification method when servicing, lamp replacement etc. are required.
