Projector Mounts & Screens Buyer's Guide
Create great presentations and special event productions with these helpful tips for finding the right projection screen and projector mount for your school, church or facility.
Wall Screen vs. Tripod Screen
Projector screens are available as a wall mounted or a stand-alone tripod screen. The traditional wall screen has a window shade mechanism that allows you to raise and lower the screen with the pull of a string. Wall screens work best for applications where a side of the room has an unobstructed view for all audience members.
Tripod screens are a more portable and temporary option as they can be easily set up and taken down. You can carry the tripod screens from room to room to share resources. Both styles are available in several sizes to match your environment.
The smaller projector screens can be mounted directly to a wall while the larger units will need extra support and must be anchored securely. In either case, you can select a bracket that will push the screen away from the wall so you can acquire the best viewing angle for your audience.
Projector screens come in a square format or wide screen much like the latest televisions of today. Check the specifications of your projection device to make sure you are selecting the correct format for your situation. The screen size you choose is dependent on the size of your room and the distance your audience is located from the viewing area. Make sure a large enough screen is selected so that all audience members can participate in your presentation.
Now that you have a screen picked out you will need to choose the appropriate digital projector mount for your classroom. Most projectors are mounted on from the ceiling and are available with several adjustment options to ensure the optimum viewing setup. Check the specifications for each mount and make sure it will support the weight and bolt pattern of your projector device.
The Universal Mount by Bretford is all that you need for a professional installation with flexibility. There are mounts available for low ceilings, drop ceiling grids and cathedral or beam ceilings. After installing the appropriate mount to your ceiling, simply secure your projector to the universal bracket with four adjustable arms. The bracket then easily locks into place on the ceiling mount and can still be adjusted with a flexible ball and socket joint construction.
