The TV at a glance
Let’s have a look at TV or flat panel, TVs nowadays aren’t an old piece of box to be placed at your home for entertainment purposes. Technological advances have evolved the generation of televisions and this decade-wide upgrade, lead to the invention of flat screens; which are equally capable of functionalities and features offered by other technologies.
- Less number of attendees – if you are choosing to opt for a TV it is a reasonably good option if you have a space problem. If you have a small conference room i.e., 8 or fewer people attending the meeting a TV with 60″ to 75″ measurement can do the job pretty well considering most business meetings don’t require a large number of attendees.
- Better visuals – When using an HD or 4K flat screen, it provides a wider color range with bright and sharp visuals and textures.
- As most of the workplaces are now getting inclined towards incorporating natural light for better productivity and a healthy environment, this matter can also affect your decision in buying due to contrast ratios.
- Taking into account the contrast issue, TVs have better contrast ratios making the visuals crisper and brighter in dark rooms as compared to the other option we have.
- Color accuracy – Imagine displaying a business idea where a color scheme is essential; you don’t want it to be inadequate, do you?
- TVs have far better color accuracy than projectors due to wider color gamut.
- If you play around colors a lot, the TV might be a feasible option for you (keeping in mind other factors as well).
- Lifespan – You can use your TV for a long time with little to no maintenance required that means you can get the most out of the thousands of bucks that you paid for it.
- If you are like us and always forget turning off things, TVs are here for the rescue as you don’t have to worry about shutting your TV after every meeting.

When done considering all the good parts of TV, here comes the question is projector better than a TV or vice versa?
Why use a Projector Instead of a TV?
For the fair ruling, we have to look into projector as well, similar to TVs projection technology has also evolved to provide better visuals for quite some time now making it a hard decision for you. But say no more!
Enough for larger spaces – Consider a large room with a small TV comparatively, straining the eyes of your meeting attendees. It surely is not the best practice to observe.
If you have a huge room, where a flat screen (65″-75″) is insufficient to play its purpose the projection comes in role (capable of displaying up to 300″). 65″ is just the beginning for a projector world.
Portable – One of the biggest challenge when doing a projector vs. led TV analysis is which one of these is handy and easy to carry. You know the obvious answer is a projector, if you have to shift your conference room for any technical issue it is not a big problem to unplug a projector from one room to move it to other.
Adjustable – Most of the projectors come with adjustable display sizes, making it an extra advantage as you can easily control the size of the display according to your number of attendees and audience.
Comfortable on Eyes – Due to less brightness and less crisp images, the projector takes an easy toll on eyes during long presentations and meeting. It makes the overall experience better when starring at a projector versus a flat screen.

Where a TV is heavier, and it makes it not capable of moving around smoothly, the projector also has a drawback of having a lifespan of a fly. The projector bulb might need a replacement or maintenance after some time when used extensively or left unattended. With TV having to display large visual limitations and projectors having a bad speaker or sound system, we finally have concluded.
In the face-off between projector and TV above, we give the final winner award to the projector.
If you want to woo your customers, a large display i.e., the projector can be handy because as the TVs resolution increases the pixels get smaller making your attendees squinting at the screen even at the 75″ of TV.
Despite considering all the factors such as budget, size, and priorities, our choice remains the same because you are going to have a tough time finding a TV or flat screen of 300″ or even 100″.
