This year's list of award winners is divided into three categories: Standard classroom projectors
, Large venue projectors
, and Ultra short throw and interactive classroom projectors
This year there are six projectors competing for awards in the Standard "class." Five projectors compete in the Large Venue (higher education) class. Finally, four total Ultra Short Throw or Interactive projectors in that class. This year only one of those four is a fully interactive projector. The others are merely UST projectors.
Projectors that Projector Reviews reviewed in the past 12 months and are suitable for education usage, are eligible for these awards. Please note, throughout this report, that we also list a number of previous award winners from past Best Education Projector reports. Those older top performers,, already "had their day in court." Although they are all still highly competitive, but those previous winning projectors are not eligible for a new award in this year's report.
The only projectors from previous reports that we include are those not only current models today, but will still be available in volume through the end of this summer. That requirement exists so that schools, school districts, and colleges and universities will be able to buy quantities this summer (2017) to be installed before the fall classes start up. Call that the normal cycle.
