In today’s digital, connected world, students arguably learn best when viewing and interacting with the curriculum in ways that mimic how they view and interact in the rest of their world.
Projection systems that create interactive displays and whiteboards, provide teachers with an innovative way to reach their students efficiently and effectively.
The new Viewsonic PS750HD joins a long list of projectors aimed directly at the education market. Specifically the PS750HD is designed for small to medium sized classrooms (it can also be used in similarly sized conference rooms).The ultra short throw lens projects images of 80 in. to 110 in. diagonal with the projector ceiling mounted close to the vertical display surface.
A standard white board will provide the best display surface.
Interactivity is accomplished with IR pens and a laser curtain that enhances the interactive feature with 10 point touch interactivity. Viewsonic’s vBoard software can be downloaded for free. Viewsonic also sells a more robust software, Quizdom Oktopus, as an option.
The PS750HD can also be mounted so it faces down creating a tabletop interactive surface.
This full HD 3D projector features 3000 lumens, 1920 x 1080 resolution and a 10,000 : 1 contrast ratio. In addition, the projector inputs include: two HDMI, two mini USB type B, S Video, Composite Video, VGA In/Out, RS232 plus audio ports. The projector is MHL compatible.
The Viewsonic lamp is the RLC-107 with a 3,000 hour rated life at full power and 7,500 hours in eco mode.
Projector Central calls this projector “ . . . a total interactive package and an excellent value as an interactive 1080p projector for any classroom or conference room.”
Released in October 2017, the MSRP is $2049 and it comes with a 3-year manufacturer warranty.
