The Top 5 Laser Projectors for Businesses

We’ve noticed some interesting developments on the office laser projector front. The market is absolutely full of choice at the moment, with an incredible range of bright, efficient and surprisingly long-lasting devices on offer.

If you’re looking for something to take your business further for less, laser light-source projectors could be the solution.

The best office projectors offer high brightness and are packed full of features to improve image quality and installation flexibility. Here’s a quick reminder on why these things matter before we get to that all-important run down of the top laser projectors for business.

 

Brighter and brighter

Our data tells us that our customers are more than willing to go for models with brighter output. A significant number of customers show a particular interest in the 5,000 Lumens brightness bracket.  Small and medium-sized businesses often require a projector bright enough to fend off ambient light in meeting rooms during company presentations.

Going for a model with 5,000 Lumens or more is almost a guarantee that the content you plan to project for business purposes will be clearly displayed, even if you can’t turn the lights down.

Content will be visible to everyone in the room, even if you have to set the device back from the screen, and this matters when we know that many businesses rely on clarity and visibility to quickly and efficiently communicate minute details, when editing or reviewing video footage, data, graphics or designs.

 

Features matter more than ever

When you’re a business looking for the best laser projector for your office, the package of features the model includes is crucial.

Keep an eye out for features related to connectivity – it’s the 21st century and you shouldn’t have to be fiddling with miles of wiring, when you can find a totally wireless office projector, or a model which can host all the devices your business could ever possibly require and keep things tidy with HDMI and HDBaseT.

Features such as vertical and horizontal lens shift can really come in handy, as not every business has the luxury of wide-open office space for a straightforward projector installation. Having these kinds of in-built features means you have a device that comes with flexibility to suit your particular dimensions and setup – no matter how confined your meeting room.

All of these projectors pack a punch when it comes to features, so we’re dropping the “Best for Features” category for this roundup. It’s all about finding the best device to fit with your company’s requirements and space – so with that in mind, on with the show for our top five laser projectors for business.
