With new types of video and interactive content in the classroom, the whiteboard has morphed as an education tool. In the right situations, whiteboards can double as video display surfaces – but do they perform as well as projection screens?
Using the solid surface of a whiteboard for projection can cause glare, issues with viewing angles, and poor display quality due to damage from whiteboard markers.
But traditional projection screens aren’t foolproof, either. When used with some of the newest short-throw projectors, it can be difficult to connect to linked images and text with precision, making online materials hard to use and display.
Educators need ways to share digital content in a clear, accessible way. And the same holds true for board rooms and collaborative areas. NSCA member Da-Lite offers a downloadable white paper on this very topic. Learn about the differences between these two display surfaces, as well as new technology that combines the optical properties of a projection screen with the rigidity of a whiteboard.
