Video on whiteboards vs computers

A colleague working on video clips for whiteboards was auditioning young actors last night and asked them about their experience of whiteboards. They’d experienced the problems of washed out video clips and said it was largely down not being able to close curtains or blinds, or control the classroom lights on.
One student had an interesting new suggestion. Their teacher, she said, often previews or watches the video on a high quality laptop screen, while the class watches it on the big projected whiteboard. So it’s possible the teacher already has good knowledge of the video which they unconsciously carry over to the more wishy washy projected image. They may not recognise their pupils are seeing an inferior reproduction which can affect their engagement with the material
