The New Year is always a great time to think about making this a good year for your tech equipment.

There are some items in your tech inventory that absolutely require regular maintenance to work effectively and obtain the full expected lifespan of each device.

• Video Projectors:

Traditional video projectors use lamps that generate massive amounts of heat, and require unimpaired air flow through the body of the projector to remove that heat. Projectors have filters on the air intakes to keep out dust and dirt, and these filters get clogged over time.

Failing to do so will reduce the life of the lamp and electronic components, and can also lead to the lamp exploding and damaging the imager and electronics. You should be cleaning these filters regularly¬—-refer to the manual for the projector to see their recommended maintenance schedule.

Lamps should also be replaced as soon as the lamp replacement light comes on; failing to do so can also lead to a lamp explosion.

• Moving Lights:

Just like video projectors, traditional (non-LED) moving lights have lamps that generate a lot of heat and need their filters cleaned. Other maintenance may also be needed. Again, refer to the manual to see what service is needed and how often.
