Projectors: Port of call

Projectors offer a range of output resolutions and also come with a number of different ports. Hurrairah bin Sohail talks to manufacturers to figure out the reasons behind the diversity and whether we can expect a standardised future.

Projectors can make an extremely strong claim to being the most commonly deployed AV solution. Whatever the sector, whatever the application, if you need visuals displayed you can bet that there is a projector that can get the job done.

Manufacturers across the board report that the demand for projectors in Asia Pacific is still strong. More interestingly, every manufacturer points to a different sector of the market where it has experienced success.

Shunichi Watanabe, managing director of Casio Singapore, says: “The sectors that have a high demand for projectors naturally are educational institutions and organisations that have meeting rooms, conference rooms and boardrooms. Increasingly, educational institutes have jumped on our Casio laser and LED hybrid technology projector.”

Tadahiro Fukumoto, general manager, visual presentation solutions division, Professional Solutions Company (PSAP), Sony Electronics Asia Pacific, comments: “The education sector is a key sector for Sony when it comes to projectors. We are also seeing an increase in demand for innovative and creative projections such as projection mapping, 3D projections and panoramic projections, etc.”
