If your classroom is equipped with an old-school projector, then you’re probably all-too-familiar with the frustration that comes along with a projector lamp or bulb burning out while you’re in the middle of a presentation to your students. However, these kinds of problems will soon be a thing of the past with the recent introduction of laser projectors. Rather than traditional light bulbs and lamps, these projectors use a laser light source. Making the switch to these in your school or even in your individual classroom can make your life easier as an educator in a number of ways.
Saves Time and Hassle
For starters, having access to a laser projector will help you make the most of your time in the classroom. Rather than having to worry about burnt-out bulbs and lamps taking time out of your lesson, you can rely on a laser light source that doesn’t require frequent replacement. This is especially convenient for classrooms that have built-in projectors installed or mounted on the ceiling, which can otherwise be extremely challenging and time-consuming to reach when changing out a bulb.
More Cost Effective in the Long-Term
While laser projectors do tend to cost a bit more than your traditional projector up-front, many educators have found that the laser projectors are more cost-effective in the long-term for numerous reasons. For example, when you take into consideration that most regular projectors need to have their bulbs or lamps changed out several times per year, you enjoy instant monetary savings by not having to constantly purchase replacement bulbs.
Not to mention, laser projectors tend to have a longer overall lifespan and require less maintenance overall, which means your school won’t have to worry about replacing projectors for many years to come once they’ve made this upgrade.
Finally, unlike traditional projectors that require some time to “warm up” upon being turned on, a laser projector is able to immediately boot up and begin projecting high-quality images in your classroom. And when you only have a certain number of minutes per day to make an impression on your students, those few extra moments can really make all the difference when it comes to keeping your students engaged in the lesson.
As you can see, there are many benefits to making the switch from traditional light bulb or lamp projectors to these innovative new laser projectors. Not only will your school save money in the long-run, but you’ll also enjoy quicker start-up and less time/hassle sunk into changing out old lamps and bulbs. As a result, you can focus less on the technology you’re using and more on the lesson you’re teaching. At the same time, you can always rest assured that the image being projected is bright, clear, and easy for your students to see from anywhere in the classroom.
