The Best Lamp-Free Projectors for Universities and Colleges

The life on lamp-based projectors is going dim as lamp-free models become the first choice for colleges and universities. Learn about the best lamp-free projector technologies — LED, Laser, and hybrid LED/laser — and why laser technology is the best option for creating a collaborative learning environment that lets students thrive.

Why Lasers? High Brightness, Color Accuracy for Classrooms

Where a projector is the primary communication and collaboration display, a laser projector is the ideal choice.

  • Delivering 5,000-lumens or brighter, everyone can see the picture clearly, even when the lights are on.
  • Completely sealed laser engine protects the projector from dust extending its life and mitigating color decay. This saves campuses thousands of dollars in maintenance and operations expenditures.
  • Filter-free, maintenance-free models have a low total cost of ownership, which don’t require mercury lamp replacements that can cost as much as $400 for 5,000-lumen projectors, plus any maintenance and recycling fees.
