I've been asked to acquire a new projector for a class room sized presentation 
room (7 m x  7m)

The projection screen is quite wide at 3 m although only gyprock surface.  An 
earlier generaation LCD projector has been used in the room for several 
years.  Only significant issue has been that presenters have had to set large 
text & icon sizes on their desktop to achieve readablity.

Any advice re two specific issues ?

DLP versus LCD projectors

the usefulness or otherwise of native widescreen formats (16:9)

Any other general or specific recommendations ?
