Classroom projectors

TI DLP® technology is creating innovations for today's classroom

DLP technology in the classroom
Use classroom projectors to engage students

In today's digital world, we are surrounded with multimedia experiences at home and work. Even the classroom is no exception. TI DLP® projectors, specifically designed for use in small and large classrooms, have become the new teaching tool to deliver images greater than 100 inches in full native 1080p on any surface. Teachers can help the entire classroom work through a complex math problem as a team with the same sharpness and brilliant imagery delivered on a single tablet.

Projectors with DLP technology are a must have for today's classroom

DLP projectors bring sights and sounds into the classroom and offer a visual source for practically any device you can connect. Students can connect a laptop to a projector to give a PowerPoint book report. Teachers can wirelessly connect state of the art TI calculators to a projector to work through complex calculations as a team. History class takes on a whole new dimension when you can provide a visual tour of historical events through the power of the internet.

If you can imagine it, you can do it. Classroom projectors with DLP technology are becoming the must-have learning tool to help increase retention, maintain interest and elevate the learning experience.

Use classroom projectors and open up endless opportunities

  • Maximize one-to-one experiences
  • Integrate video and sound to maximize learning
  • Bring the Internet to life and engage the entire class
  • Incorporate video into lessons to help increase retention and attention
  • Allow students to use the projector for presentations, reports and more
  • Incorporate other technologies such as white boards, wireless devices such as TI calculators and 3D to enhance curriculums

DLP projectors in the auditorium and gymnasium

Sporting events, musical programs, assemblies and other school gatherings will never be the same when a multimedia projector is added to the event.

DLP projectors can add a new dimension to any large event

  • Consider a musical program which incorporates visual images to complement the live performance.
  • DLP projectors can add video support for sporting events much like a giant "jumbotron" without the high price.
  • School assemblies can include video, sound and presentation slides to add impact to the content of the event.
  • DLP projectors can encourage interaction at school pep rallies. Students can produce videos showing their school spirit and show them on the big screen.
  • Educational videos can help communicate key issues to students and parents at large gatherings.

DLP projectors in the library

Books are perhaps the most valuable resource available for helping students learn and grow. The library provides a key space for students to explore everything that books offer. Adding a DLP projector to the library provides a key tool for librarians to share the value that reading can provide.

With a DLP projector, librarians and other educators can surf the internet with a group of students to explore books online. Topics can be researched and new book sources can be discovered instantly, together. Students are curious about everything. By sharing information on a big screen with a group, educators can pique their curiosity and enhance the learning experience.

The library is a central learning center where DLP projectors can play many roles

  • Play videos to large groups as part of a core lesson and compliment the content with related books
  • Explore new book topics online with a large group of students and teach them researching skills at the same time
  • Display books online and even read a virtual book on the big screen to really engage the students
  • Use images on the big screen to supplement a book as it is being read
  • As the library is used many times as a central gathering place, use a projector for key presentations to students, faculty, parents and other groups

DLP portable projectors

Teaching has become a more mobile profession. Teachers at every level find themselves presenting information to a diverse group of people both in the classroom and on the road. Portable projectors with DLP technology are key tools that help to make those presentations successful.

Portable projectors offer a means to present information to any size group with video and sound. The impact of a projector is big in many ways but the projector cannot become a barrier to success. They must be portable, easy to set up and use and bright for any environment.

The flexible DLP technology enables a compact design coupled with high brightness and image quality. Lightweight and easy to take on the road, some portable projectors with DLP technology weigh less than 1 pound!

Lower total cost of ownership

Lower total cost of ownership

When you purchase a projector or any other piece of equipment, it all comes down to the lifetime cost of ownership. In addition to looking at the initial price, you have to factor in maintenance costs – like filter cleanings and replacements – and how long the projector will last. Depending upon you particular circumstance, projectors with DLP technology can offer low maintenance costs, which will save your school money.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs) about DLP projectors for the classroom

What is the lifetime cost of ownership for this projector?

Costs of a projector go well beyond the initial price. Depending upon your particular circumstance, DLP technology can lower the total cost of ownership over the lifetime of your projector with filter free and lamp free options.3 Since most projectors with DLP technology are filter free, you do not have the hassle of cleaning, maintaining and replacing filters. Plus, lamp free projectors with DLP technology virtually eliminate the cost of lamps while still providing high brightness using solid-state LED or laser illuminations. Combined, these two features create a substantial lifetime cost savings compared to other technologies.

What is the native contrast ratio?

Native contrast is arguably the single most important measurable quality for readability. Although high contrast numbers, such as 2,000:1 or 10,000:1 are normally listed in the projector specifications, be sure that you ask..."What is the NATIVE contrast?" Native contrast ratio is the constant, measured degree of black to white that is displayed continuously. DLP projectors are known for their high native contrast, arguably the single most important measurable quality whether you're presenting the latest financial report at the office, or ensuring students see every word and graph even in the back of the room.

Do projectors with DLP technology require a filter?

DLP technology is a reflective display technology that can support a filter free optical architecture that allows for all the optical components to be sealed in most DLP projectors. This way, dust cannot accumulate where the projected image is being created. Similar to a PC that uses fans inside the component, a filter free DLP projector does not require filters to clean or replace, saving maintenance costs.

How bright is the projector?

Brightness is measured in "ANSI Lumens". This term describes the brightness on the screen. Depending upon the ambient light in the room, the projector may need to offer higher brightness for optimal viewing. For most classroom settings, 1500-2000 lumens or higher is preferred.

What is the optimal size for my classroom?

The optimal size for a projector depends on how it will be used in the classroom. If the projector is meant to be mounted to the ceiling to be in a fixed location, then the size is not as important as the rest of the projector's features. If the projector will be moved from class to class, then a more portable projector should be considered. With total weights as low as two pounds and under, DLP projectors lead the pack for lightness.
