Office projectors are projectors that are designed for the workplace.
Office projectors are projectors that are designed for the workplace.

Businesses are looking for office projectors that are optimized for presentation use in conference rooms, boardrooms, and lecture halls.

High projector brightness, measured in
ANSI lumens, is essential for displaying a clear picture in conference rooms that usually suffer from light pollution, as many boardrooms are kept well lit during office projector use.

Also known as business projectors, office projectors can help those in the work place to close deals and create effective marketing proposals.

Office projectors are generally either portable or smaller fixed/install projectors, therefore big auditorium projectors do not fit into this category.

Common types of office projectors are: 3LCD projectorsLCD projectors, and DLP projectors.

About Office Projectors

Office projectors are projectors that are designed for the workplace. Office projector is synonymous with terms like business projector, education or classroom projector, or government projector, and are usually portable projectors.

Office projectors can range from anything from those sold at places like Staples or Office Depot (which are typically the smaller, portable projectors that are suitable from dragging from room to room) up to small fixed/install projectors that are ceiling-mounted.

Generally, though, office projectors typically do not include the big auditorium projectors, but rather those smaller models that can be easily moved from place to place and set up/packed up.

The trick is to find the office projector that best meets your presentation and venue needs. Entry level office projectors, though ideal in price, have entry level brightness (2000-3000 lumens), which is satisfactory in many presentation environments but not in all.

Thus, depending on how much ambient light is polluting the venue (if there are windows that cannot be covered or lights that must remain on), you may need one of the brighter models out there.

Office projectors range all over in terms of features. Entry level projectors are more limited (such as no wired or wireless networking), whereas higher-end office projectors can give presentations wirelessly or, recently, stream directly from the internet without a computer. The nicer the projector, the more placement flexibility, since entry-level models typically have very limited zoom range.

Entry level office projectors

  • Low cost – $595-$895
  • Lumens: 2000-3000
  • Low resolution – SVGA (800×600), widescreen WVGA (853×480)
  • 5-10 lbs.
  • Lower connectivity
  • Typically LCD technology
  • Usually 2 video inputs (S-video and composite)
  • Some offer component video, monitor out, audio input
  • Limited if any networking

Mid-price office projectors

  • Middle price: $2,000-$5,000+
  • Lumens: 3000-4000+
  • Higher resolution – recently even 1080p
  • Most over 10 lbs.
  • Many offer interchangeable lenses
  • Some have optical lens shift
  • Inputs: multiple computer inputs, HDMI or DVI
  • Power zoom/focus
  • Advanced wired and wireless networking

High cost/performance office projectors

  • Most expensive: $5,000-$100,000
  • Lumens: 5000+
  • High resolution
  • 10-15 lbs.
  • Dual lamp technology for reliability
  • Almost all have optical lens shift, allows for projector “stacking” for double the brightness
  • Extended/advanced feature sets

Average price range for an office projector is $450 to $650 for a resolution of 1024 x 768 XGA and brightness of 2500 lumens to 3300 lumens. Higher end models start around $1,500 which provide even brighter picture.

The 21st century business professional can now use pocket projectormini projector or even pico projector technology for ultimate portability. The newest of these ultra small projectors can integrate with a laptop, smartphone, or iPad.

Mini projectors weigh under 2 lbs and can project bright images upward of 65 inches. Pico projectors are about 1/2 lb. in weight and are the most portable, but current models are still lacking the brightness to give presentations to more than a few people in anything short of a nearly dark environment.

The office projector is of a different breed, separate from the home theater projector entirely.  Office projectors are typically very bright, offering anywhere from 2000 lumens to at least 5000 lumens in order to withstand the brightly lit environments of an office space or a classroom. Usually, office projectors weigh anywhere from 2.5 to 15 lbs. They are all Mac and PC compatible.
