The projection technologies market is not what it used to be—and that’s a very good thing.

Ask anyone whose industry experience dates back to the 1990s or even further back into the 1980s. They will say that without a doubt one of the most tedious jobs an AV professional does is the setup and calibration of a CRT projector. Over the past few years, developments in the projector industry have maximized. The potential of lamp-based light sources, including brightness levels and lamp longevity.

Projection technology has changed and is still evolving.

Lamp-based light sources have become brighter, and their longevity has increased. 

The emergence of affordable flat-panel displays may have forced projector manufacturers to innovate and provide step-up technologies that continue to drive demand for projection solutions. And projector manufacturers have responded in a big way. LED and laser-based projectors have been developed in response to market demand for more efficient light sources and cost concerns.

Several applications will continue to rely on lamp-based projection because they have the ability to install a new lamp at a relatively low cost, and set the projector back to the maximum brightness the projector offered when it was brand new.
