Video conference unit to replace projector


The main question is can a video conference system (Such as a LifeSize Team 220) replace the need to have a projector in an office?

The reason why is originally we designed office boardrooms to be able to cater for both. Therefore to handle a VC and a projector. However for some reason the boardrooms were build without a HDMI or VGA cable being fed to the ceiling.

Result is we can't have a ceiling mounted projector (not without running some surface cabling - i.e. not good, or without much expense to open walls again).

If we instead place a VC unit in the room which will be attached to a large wall mounted screen, most VC unit's I understand have the capability to display laptop output.

So in the case of visitors wanting to drop into the office and display a presentation from their laptop, the experience needs to be as easy as when they were using a projector (but instead of display being projected, it appears on large screen.

Am I right in thinking that using a VC unit would be fine and I'm not losing anything by having a VC instead of a projector?

The VCS [Video Conference Screen] ? how would you screen from thre laptop to the VCS without a projector?
you could replace the screen with a portable screen

Well another simple enough idea
you could get a digital flat screen TV hang it on the wall or off a TV bracket and connect the laptop to it put it in a corner.
pretty cheap to buy TV these days.
