There is some overlap in the market, but there are still clear situations when one is preferable over the other.

once you get in to a classroom situation, the touchpanel is not practical.” In a classroom size, you need a very big image so students in the back can see it. “That’s where the difference is,” he says. “And it’s scalable. If you want a 50-inch image with a projector, it costs the same amount as a 100-inch image with a projector. With a panel, it costs a lot more to go from 50 inches to 70 inches.”
Projectors and LED/LCD large format touchpanels have some overlap in their markets, but can very easily peacefully coexist. Flat panels are more relevant for videoconferencing and smaller collaborative functions whereas the projector fills the bill for a large classroom or corporate learning environment where viewers are reading text on screen from far away.
