    I got a deal on a projector with installation as a bundle if a mount was required it was an extra £65 and it came with a three year education warranty.

    Hi The XU41 and the SU50 are much bigger chassis' than the XW200 so you would need a new mounting bracket. They will not fit.

    Why are people using projector-specific mounting brackets and not universal ones? Our early installations were in such things, and it cost us silly money to change these when we got new projectors - universal ones are much better, IMO.

    You are quite right, universal brackets are a lot cheaper to manufacturer which is why you can normally pick them up for competitive pricing. I would recommend using a reputable brand and a good installation company though.

    Do these fit onto Unicol poles, as we already have these in pretty all classrooms. We're looking at installing these new Casio projectors over the next couple of years. If we can find a bracket that will fit the Casio projector and Unicol pole then we can do most, if not all, of the installation ourselves. Especially with the generous throwing distances the Casio projectors offer...

    May be worth considering BTech or Chief as alternatives to Unicol.

    The BTech part number is BT899 and fits directly on to the Unicol pole.

    I have heard that Chief may be launched one at ISE Amsterdam next week.

    I also find Sahara Mounts very good for use in education.

    They have security fixings so it makes life that bit harder for people trying to steal the projector.

    They have the ability to tilt up to 30 degrees so that IWB’s can be fitted at low levels and still keep projectors at a high level.

    Universal projector plate and can also be retro fitted to any existing Unicol pole.

    Also very well priced.

    Another vote for Sahara Universal Mounts, I've used loads of them now and love them They are excellent value as well.
