In the past year alone, ProjectorPoint has seen a solid concentration of demand around WUXGA-resolution office projectors, with year-on-year demand increasing by an impressive 42 per cent. Why is this happening, you may ask.
If 1080p Full HD is something of a modern-day entry point for businesses, WUXGA is a natural progression.
By design, WUXGA enables more pixels on the screen, specifically on the vertical axis. For businesses, there’s a big benefit here when reviewing detailed content. Switching to WUXGA allows you to display even more content on a screen, while the larger aspect ratio of 16:10 ensures that multiple sources and input types can be used, without compromising on image quality – a big deal for many businesses who work in the field of design and content creation.
If your meetings are heavily-dependent on a multitude of sources for video content, for example, it makes a difference to have those extra pixels at your disposal to see the full picture from every device. But remember it’s not all about resolution. A great WUXGA projector also needs to provide the contrast, brightness and connectivity your team will need to view their content on screen properly.
Read on for our roundup of some of the best devices on the market to suit your team.
Price: £942 (Excl. VAT)
We can’t believe that this stunning projector is actually our value choice in the roundup – but at just £942, it’s really something of a bargain! It’s also feature-rich with a great lens ratio and 1.6x optical zoom which means installation is a cinch and positioning in the room is more flexible than you’d imagine at this price point. The VZ580EJ is one of our best-selling 5,000 Lumens WUXGA models, enjoying a 41 per cent share of sales in this brightness bracket. The great-value price tag is just part of its appeal, especially when you consider the specifications it offers.
Price: £1,698 (Excl. VAT)
The EB-L510U takes things up a notch, using laser-light source technology to deliver WUXGA-resolution images with high contrast. Horizontal and vertical lens shift makes installation easy, as the lens itself is designed to move in a way to ensure that projected images always come out square to the screen, no matter how awkwards your meeting room install might be.
Its laser-light source ensures even greater lamp life, so you can make a great saving on maintenance here, as the device will remain functional, long after most conventional lamp-based models have had their lamp replaced several times.
The EB-L510U boasts one of the highest contrast ratios on this list, on top of the great features, and the generous five-year warranty.
Price: £2,098 (Excl. VAT)
The NEC P525UL makes a good investment for your business, particularly if you’re keen to get your hands on a model that has the features you’ll need to see you through the next couple of years and beyond. It combines high-brightness with laser-light source technology, plus an exceptionally high contrast ratio; specifications that are hard to find all in one place.
It also comes with a superb pan-European projector advance replacement warranty of three years. Not only that, but it also has fantastic connectivity, including HDMI of course, as well as HDBaseT. That means being able to project uncompressed high-quality video and audio content, via one cable, over long distances with far less clutter than ever before. No masses of wires to trip up on or to have to untangle and a key futureproofing bit of connectivity tech.
Price: £1,682 (Excl. VAT)
The Sony VPL-PHZ10 tops our list for this category of office projector, because it guarantees sumptuous-looking colours, and perfect motion handling. All of this means that your video content is able to retain that high contrast, even if you’re working with content involving lots of motion blur and fast-moving images.
The PHZ10’s image quality is just stunning when driving through images and visual content such as CAD design and computer-generated models.
It’s amazing with video, and even those less-interesting Excel spreadsheets as it is able to retain that bright and highly-detailed quality you need. We’re talking crisp whites and deep and rich blacks, with eye-popping colours across the rest of the spectrum.
As with the NEC device in our list, this Sony model also features top-notch connectivity with HDBaseT and HDMI, making it well suited to a forward-thinking working environment.
