Helpful Features to Consider When Purchasing a K-12 DLP® Projector

What you'll need
  • A ViewSonic® LightStream® projector with SuperColor™ technology.

You plan to purchase DLP projection technology for your K-12 classrooms based on their lower TCO. Beyond key specs like resolution, are there additional features you should consider?


Industry standard specifications like resolution, contrast ratio and brightness help determine a projector’s fit for your environment. Additional features can make using and maintaining projectors easier and more efficient. These include:

  • Audio. For great sound and image quality, look for projectors designed with both attributes in mind, such as ViewSonic® LightStream® projectors with SonicExpert® technology.
  • Connectivity. A VGA input for computer connectivity and an HDMI® connector for video are minimum requirements. Dual HDMI inputs add setup flexibility and simultaneous connection for two video sources. MHL- enabled HDMI ports provide wireless projection from smart devices via streaming / casting sticks.
  • USB Power Port. Lets teachers stream multimedia content from wireless HDMI dongles like Google Chromecast.
  • 3D Blu-ray Ready. DLP projectors with the latest HDMI technology can display 3D images directly from 3D Blu-ray players.
  • Remote Control. Convenient single button controls enable preset preferences for multiple settings.
  • Ease-of-use Extras. Cable management hoods reduce cord clutter and tripping hazards; easy-access lamp doors save time. Specifications
