Projectors usually come with a remote controller but why is there a need to install a separate fixed controller? Are fixed controllers better and are they necessary in the first place? There are various instances where a remote controller works better than a fixed one and vise versa.
Some of the main reasons why some users decide to opt for Fixed Controllers:
– No issues with mis-placing the remote controller
– No issues of last minute flat batteries in remote controllers
– When install at the right places, convenient for the presenter to change settings
– Only the important Basic functions available, reducing unnecessary problems with users accidentally changing the pre-set calibrations or settings via Remote Controllers
However having said the above, working with just the remote controller is not as bad as it seems. It is quite convenient especially for smaller rooms where there are no blockages, in the line-of-sight to the projectors, for the IR signals. Having the same brand of projectors for multiple rooms can also be controlled via the same controller making it very handy with just 1 controller. Most importantly, it is going to save the user a couple hundred dollars per setup without installaing the fixed controller.
