    Yep there's already been confusion with the M&E QE, this is going to be a fun build (and I'm not even a manager ;p)
    The trouble with using a face plate behind the projector is that you'll be able to see all the plugs and cables that are connected to it, which could end up looking worse.

    You could consider having the cables come out of the wall above the false ceilng (assuming the new room has one - and most schools do) then all you would need is a short length of flexible trunking coming through a neat hole in the ceiling tile above the projector mount.

    I would take a good look at the mounts for the projectors you are considering and see if they have any form of cable management that you can use to minimise the amount of visible cables.

    Let me know if you want any photos of the mount that comes with the Epson EB-470.

    it was the CPD27WN we used - although not on a wall mount. It has lots of inputs including HDMI and USB for 'PC less presentations'. There's a wireless option too.

    I reckon a Commerical 50" Plasma would be 15 to 20% more cost.

    I don't think I'm even allowed to pierce the ceiling! Hence the wall plates.

    Plasma could be an idea, seen a 60" for 1k, not sure if it'll be big enough?

    I'm sure the hitachi wall mounts - just we didn't use it like that.

    We compared a 50" widescreen plasma to a 64" Smartboard 660 and the difference was actually minimal, given square vs widescreen etc. I guess it depends on what size image you want!
