Ricoh PJ-WX4141Ni
Interactive Short Throw Projector

Marc Davidson, July 31, 2014

The Interactive Experience

The WX4141Ni shares most of its interactive features with every other projector that uses TI's interactive technology. Most notably, you don't need to calibrate the pen to the projector, and you can simply point the pen at the screen to interact without touching it. However, the farther you are from the screen, the harder it is to control the mouse or add notations. There's also the expected slight lag between moving the pen and seeing the result on screen. One nice touch is that the fan is whisper-quiet, so it won't be bothersome even if you're standing next to projector.

I didn't have multiple projectors for my tests, but according to Ricoh, the WX4141Ni can connect with up to three other Ricoh interactive projectors or whiteboards on the same LAN or WAN to share an image. You can make notations with any of the devices, and the notes will show up on all of them. Connect the projectors through a VPN, and you can collaborate easily with anyone, no matter where they are. Only a few interactive projectors offer this sort of collaboration feature, which makes the WX4141Ni a strong contender for anyone who can make good use of it.

An excellent projector indeed! Innovation combined with good design from Ricoh.. And at just 11cm from the wall, it is great for very small meeting rooms, and digital signage solutions in a retail environment.
