The concept of a "business projector" can cover a lot of ground. Some models are great for displaying text documents, but not as effective for graphics and complex imagery. Some have excellent color and are well suited to photography, but might lack the sharpness for optimum display of detailed material.

The NEC LT380 is one of those rare projectors that performs equally well with text documents, Powerpoint-type slideshows, photography, and graphics. And while it was not designed for primary use as a video projector, the LT380 performs exceptionally well with video as well, particularly standard definition television, 4:3 DVD movies, and video games. Though intended for commercial use, the LT380 can serve double duty as an exciting 4:3 format home entertainment projector.
