To follow up from what Cheryl said, we also use unistrut to lower the
mounting of the projector to minimize the keystoning that occurs. We have
been pleased with the keystone reduction that the NEC NP200 & 300
projectors have been doing for us.
Another option for the height question is to get the Smartboard with the
integrated projector and the slide mounting bracket so the board can glide
up and down to adjust for students and teachers. We use that in our
conference room where school board meetings are held. Of course, the cost
is certainly more prohibitive with that solution but in my mind it is the
best. It's often harder to argue for in these times of lean budgets.
