    How easy is it to run cabling/power up to where the projectors would be? I'd go projector for a work environment.

    easy. this would go on a column, and they all have electrical panels already. i might get one to try out. its pretty bright in here though so worried that will be a problem. we can design the pages to be in whatever colors we want.

    2,500 lumens is good but if it is a lit up area, it might be tough.

    im thinking we'd go through more than a bulb per year on a projector. it will be on 24/7 which is why we have special display board things now. as in things used for ads at airports.....they can run forever and never crap out.

    We redid our executive conference room at work. They sent me to pick up an 82” Samsung from Sams. Thing is gigantic and wouldn’t fit in my 6 ft truck bed where I could close the tailgate.

    They originally wanted to go cheap and get a 55”. A few of us talked them into going big. 55” would have loooed tiny on that wall. You can see spreadsheet data at the far end of the table now.

    Get the cheapest thing in your size range for that purpose. Seriously.

    Just avoid LG as most of their TV's = garbage. Always trust Samsung! Except for appliances, samsung appliances suck.

    Except every single LG TV that is a few years old has a line running through it.

    Lol, thats not true at all.

    Also LG OLED is the best tv you can buy today. Samsung doesn't even make one lol and they have some over priced LED knockoff to try and compete. Samsung makes an ok tv but overpriced and outmatched in every segment.

    TV buying is so easy right now, either TCL 6 series for a budget or LG OLED for high end. Sony X900 would fall into your mid tier buy.
