Not having had anything do do with multimedia projectors I need help in procuring for one for our local school.

The projector will be ceiling mounted and be 3.3 metres from the interactive whiteboard. It will be needed for a variety of tasks ranging from video to smart board use. Price is not a major issue as the school want to source the best for the job but the budget isn't limitless.

Can anyone advise on the key criteria I should use to make the choice, suggested machines would be welcome too.

I would lumens would be the most important factor. 2,000 to 3,000 lumens would be what I would recommend for classroom use. Of course you can go higher. Secondly I would reccomend at least an HD (1280 x 720) projector since you will be showing movies. Thirdly I would consider the price of replacement lamps as the final piece. You do not want to spend a lot of money for replacement lamps. Be sure to get one with the correct screws and mounting brackets for use on the ceiling.

Here is a link to projector central that will let you select lumens, resolution, and other factors to help narrow selection down
