Case Study—CRLS has gone LCD

Publish date:

Located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, the Cambridge Rindge and Latin School (CRLS) is a high school divided into four Learning Communities designed to promote high levels of learning and achievement for all students. The mission of Cambridge Rindge and Latin School is to provide high-quality education to every student through rigorous, comprehensive and personalized teaching and learning in a nurturing and respectful environment.

CRLS offers an innovative approach to education, such as its 4 x 4 Block Schedule with four 84-minute periods each day and two 90-day semesters each year. The school prides itself on its state-of-the-art facilities for a wide range of career and technical programs, and this year the school decided to upgrade its presentation facilities to include video LCD projectors.

“We needed a high-quality, short-throw projector with HDMI connectivity,” said Jason Graham, Senior Technician at CRLS. “I was pleasantly surprised by some of the projector’s useful features, such as the audio pass-through function that lets you listen to audio through external speakers, even when the projector is on standby.”

The short-throw distance can project a diagonal image of up to 84 inches, making it a good fit for smaller rooms and interactive whiteboard applications. It can be controlled via a LAN network connection, providing the ability to network, control and maintain the projector from a remote location. The network functionality can control multiple projectors in different rooms, and monitor parameters such as remaining lamp life. It includes a Template function that displays lines, circles or a world map, making it easier to write on an interactive whiteboard
