Mitsubishi Interactive Projectors Stand Out in the Classroom

In an article that looks at short-throw and interactive projectors for the classroom, AVNetwork included a pair of Mitsubishi projectors that support interactive and dual-pen functionality that enables two pens to be used at the same time on the same surface. Mitsubishi’s wide-screen format WD385U-EST and XGAresolution XD365U-EST 3D-ready projectors empower students and teachers to make annotations on almost any solid surface. A specially crafted lens in each can project a 70-inch (diagonal) image from less than 23 inches away.

AVI-SPL has relied on Mitsubishi projectors for its integrations in corporate and education environments. Talk to one of our experts about how interactive projectors can benefit your classroom: call us at 866-559-8197 or email sales@avispl.com. We look forward to hearing from you.
