In recent years, projectors have become interactive devices that provide multiuser, multi-touch-point support. Recent projector market entrants have taken interactivity a step further by supporting input using a finger instead of requiring a pen. With these technologies, teachers can group students into teams and create game-like lessons that stimulate understanding and retention of key concepts. Because of these advances, many schools are viewing interactive projectors as a potential alternative to interactive whiteboard technologies.
As far as costs, some contemporary projectors do not use traditional projector lamps, which can be expensive and difficult to replace. Although lamp-free projectors initially had prices that were cost-prohibitive to some, more affordable options from well-known manufacturers are now available.
