Need a recommendation for a classroom projector
« on: January 13, 2018, 12:40:29 AM »
I don’t know much about class room projectors at all.  Anyone have a recommendation for one do a small class room to project onto a dry erase board?  Do the make them with airplay at all?  I’m looking for a under 1k and over 1k option.

Attach an Apple TV to any hdmi projector that supports hdcp and you will be golden. You could also use an app like Reflector running on a computer to do airplay but it sunk have a delay. When u worked in schools we used epson power lites with great success.

the issue with dry erase boards is you will get "bulb" glare as its very reflective material .
