Today, cost of ownership is likely the most important factor in the purchase of a projection system. Here too, careful selection pays dividends.
The optical efficiency of the projector is likely the largest contributor. A high-efficiency projector requires less power for a given amount of light output, thus directly reducing ongoing operating costs as well as helping to reduce environmental footprint.
The cost of replacement lamps is also a factor; the small lamps used in multi-lamp projectors usually last longer, provide redundancy and cost less to replace than the larger lamps used in single-lamp projectors – all achieving the same light output.
Air filters, which typically must be replaced regularly, are another ongoing expense; any projection system that does not require air filter offers an advantage.
Low-cost, commodity projectors don’t usually provide high performance capabilities which may actually end up costing more in the long run.
Consider all your requirements from the start
Within a defined budget, an effective projection system, regardless of its scale and size, must be bright, flexible, reliable, and offer the performance demands of those using the technology.
For those monitoring and maintaining the projection technology dependable customer support and professional advice can mean a great cost savings.
To ensure that all requirements are achieved it is best to consider all your technology requirements up front to avoid costly upgrades or replacement purchases later.
