    The rest are for the head, meeting rooms and conference room in the new build as well and they will be fine with the Epson software.
    Do you know how the epson software compares to the Smart software?
    What are you doing about Teachers who have built up smart note resources over the years. I guess these will no longer work with the epson software?

    During the demo they were pretty impressed with the software however they have not been able to completely use them yet as they haven't moved into the new build currently. They are happy to modify the resources they have to work with the Epson software. If there are any real problems we can still purchase a separate license for the Smart software to use on the Epsons and we will still have saved money compared to the LightRaise projectors.

    @neilault - Did you get the Epson Interactive Projectors in the end? We are looking at replacing our aging boards and projectors with cheaper Interactive Projectors but it seems Smart are the only ones that make Interactive Projectors that are Pen and Touch. All the others are pen only so lose the pen and you cant use the board.

    Will be looking at Interactive Projectors at BETT to see what the options are but have to be Pen and Touch.

    Yes we got 20 of the Epson EB-475WI projectors in the end. We currently have only installed one of them as the new build is still in progress. They seem to be happy with it and they are very smart and bright.

    Unfortunately the Smart projectors are the only ones that can do touch. As far as I can tell from our Epson rep this isn't going to change anytime soon. You get two pens with each projectors and replacements are about £35 I believe. We became part of the Epson Hub agreement as we purchased a few projectors which means we keep spare bulbs, pens etc in stock and then only get charged when we take one.

    I shall be spending my time at BETT looking at tablets no doubt!
