PRM-45 projector family End-of-Sale Announcement
Following a global change in certification requirements for many electronics products, our manufacturing partner is ceasing production of and withdrawing from supply to Promethean the PRM-45A and PRM45-V1 models of Digital Short Throw (DST) projectors in December 2020.
Promethean has therefore initiated the End-of-Life process for all models of the PRM-45 with immediate effect.
Promethean has also initiated the End-of-Life process for all mount and adjustable stand upgrade kits related to the PRM-45 family.
On October 31, 2020, Promethean announces the end-of-sale and end-of-life dates for the PRM-45 (pictured above) and associated upgrade kits in all remaining markets where the product line is currently sold.
Per our End-of-Life Policy, the last day to order the listed products will be January 31, 2021 (subject to stock availability).
Customers will continue to receive support from Promethean as shown in the Support Lifecycle table in the End-of-Life Policy.
Table 1 below describes the end-of-life milestones, definitions, and dates for the PRM45 family and associated upgrade kits. Table 2 lists the product codes affected by this announcement.
