Projection systems for workplace environments: What you need to know

The best projections systems for a company varies based on usage profile and what is expected of them in the environment they are going to be used in. Therefore, projection systems for use in workplace environments are expected to meet certain demands that may not be a requirement in the typical home system. Generally, businesses therefore have to be a bit more discerning when it comes to the system that they choose.

Firstly, business systems should ideally be portable, as they may be used in more than one location. This means that the setup process should be straight forward otherwise the projection system may not fit in at most work environments.

Unlike home projection systems, the quality of sound isn’t necessarily mission critical when choosing work place systems. This is because a lot of the time sound isn’t required as projection systems used at work are often meant for clear presentation of visual information and nothing more. The voice of the presenter is more than enough to provide commentary for items displayed visually.

Therefore, top of the typical list of considerations for people looking to workplace projection systems are portability and sharpness of image.

Manufacturers often deploy a variety of technologies in these projection systems, but, for the users, the main interest is what these projectors deliver in practical terms. This is why the average user considers image quality, sound quality, reliability etc. before looking at technologies deployed in the designing of the projection systems.

Below are some of the most important considerations.


The brightness of a projection system is measured in lumens and is displayed in its specifications. The best systems are those that gives the user ability to increase or decrease brightness. This is because external factors can make the presentation too bright, as well as too dim, for the viewers. Some of these factors include the viewing distance, the screen reflectivity, size of the room, room brightness etc. So while looking for a projection system with high lumen, flexibility is also a must.


This is basically the number of image-producing pixels a specific projection system uses to project an image. The greater the number of pixels, the higher the clarity and definition of the image displayed. High definition resolution refers to a visual display of 1920 pixels in width and 1080 pixels in height.


How an image fits a particular screen is dependent on not just the aspect ratios of the screen, source and projection system but also the distance between the system and the display. Therefore, in many cases, the zoom feature is vital in ensuring that there is no need to adjust settings on screens or shift the position of projection systems.

Collaboration tools

Projection systems can allow file sharing and diverse media inputs these days. Buyers need to think about what they could possibly be doing on their systems. If the projector is going to be used for highly collaborative work then diverse collaborative functions will be a must.

These are some of the main considerations that will help you choose a projection system that will fit in seamlessly in your business premises.
