Or any other AV types.
A couple of quick questions to run past you.
I have a customer (local council) who have a mobile (tabletop) projector, they are enquiring if it can be suspended from the ceiling.

Having looked at the unit I dont think it is possible as the base is not flat & has no fixing points, unless you know of a retrofit kit or the likes.

I have told them I dont think it's do-able so they are open to the possibility of a new unit that is made for fixing to the ceiling........any pointers on the best to go for. They only want it to be connected to a laptop via vga cable for slide shows & presentations.

Cheers.


This is the unit they currently have.

normally they have three small screw holes on the underside (about 0BA)

you just get a universal mount. I normally put a single socket on a spur on the ceiling, and run a 15m VGA cable down a bit of trunking

when its set up you need to flip the image, and set it to the right display, normally forward facing onto the projector (you can display from behind)

new projectors of a decent display are normally about £300 - £400.

off a laptop is fine, but if you run off a normal PC then you will ned a VGA splitter

sorry if thats egg sucking Easy old chap, not sure how much you know about this!

Fitted loads of these in pubs etc, Shakey is spot on.

Can be a bit of a pain to find the image invert in the menu, but apart from that cant realy add anything !
