Running a successful business meeting or sales pitch often requires a digital presentation of some kind. A computer screen will hardly do – you need something larger so that everyone in the room can see and hear the information you are presenting. You have two options for getting your demonstration on a bigger screen: by using either a projector or a TV. However, these two tools do different things, so you need to figure out which one is right for your business needs. AVI Orlando is here to help you decide between the two by examining some factors.
TV’s can be used for a variety of purposes. Once your presentation and meeting are over, you display other helpful graphics on the screen like calendars, schedules, or company information. With a projector, you are more limited. You can’t run them constantly or the bulbs will burn out and require replacement. Winner: TV
If you have one primary conference room, a wall-mounted TV isn’t a bad way to go. But if you need a more flexible screen, a projector is much more portable. They range from about 8 lbs. to 15 lbs. and can rest on any flat surface, making them a much more flexible solution if you don’t want to put TV’s in every room. Winner: Projector
Both bottom-end projectors and TVs are relatively cheap. Any TV or projector that would work in a home can also work reasonably well in an office. But, if you want your tools to perform even better with clearer, brighter, crisper picture and video capabilities suitable for corporations, it’s going to cost you a little more. Top TVs run anywhere from $5,000 – $15,000 whereas top projectors are anywhere from $1,700 – $5,000. Winner: Projector
TV’s obviously put out their own audio, which is often suitable for smaller meeting room situations. But no matter which projector you choose, you will need a separate audio system for presentations incorporating videos. Winner: TV
You’d be hard-pressed to find a TV over 80”. Normally, that’s not an issue – an average conference room often doesn’t need a screen bigger than that. But, if presentations include highly detailed graphs and tables, it can be difficult for some farther from the TV to discern the data easily. Projectors can be used in much larger rooms, and the size of the picture can be adjusted to fit the needs of the audience. This allows you to tailor the experience of the presentation perfectly for all participants, no matter the size of the room or the distance of viewers from the screen. Winner: Projector
