Does anyone have experience of using it? Does it create the projector as an additional monitor, so you can extend the desktop onto it?

Have you tried it to find out?

Now that would be too easy speedy. I'm currently researching projectors for a ceiling mounted model, so don't have one to try.

I saw about half a dozen fitted out recently in both Waimea college and the new top floor of the Munroe building in Nelson, and from what I can tell the teachers/police depends which building your at just plug in their laptops and away they go, I do think you have to press a certain key combo on the laptop to get it to see the projector though

Thanks Gary, but my daughter thinks the waimea college projectors have a vga cable run to the teachers desk. I'm looking at networked projectors.

Thinking back (it was last Jan I fitted out the science labs including the teachers desks which I made) and your daughter is correct they do have VGA as do the ones at the Police centre
