Conference Room Displays

Conference rooms all have a display on which presentations and images can be shown. Usually, this takes the form of a ceiling-mounted projector that projects its images on a front projection screen. However, there are alternative conference room displays available too.

The problem with conference rooms is that there is always a tug-o-war between light and dark. A dark room is gloomy and delegates may struggle to see their documentation properly, but it shows off the image on the screen to best effect. Increasing ambient light makes for an airier atmosphere and better visibility, but it dulls the image of the projector on the screen, which itself relies on projected light.

Therefore, rear projection displays, where the projector is mounted behind the screen, have become more popular. Rear projection displays have several advantages. Chief among these are that:

  • They deliver crisp, sharp images
  • They are less susceptible to ambient light
  • They may provide a contrast level ten times better than a front projection display
  • There is almost no noise from the audio/visual equipment
  • Nothing can come between the projector and screen and cast a shadow on the image
  • The presenter is not blinded by the projector

Rear projection conference room displays often make use of a special, dynamic optical screen onto which the image is projected, providing for excellent quality and high contrast. The screen frame is fitted with mirrors that reflect and “fold” the projector’s light so that it may be a lot closer to the screen. The system is fitted with features that allow variable focus and precision alignment.
