Abstract {jgaertne, eegger} @ pop.tuwien.ac.at Typically, technical support for groups is discussed in terms of Group Decision Support Systems and Group Support Systems. Nevertheless, the diffusion of these technically sophisticated systems is rather low. This paper fertilizes a simpler technology for participatory design purposes namely LCD-projectors. LCD-projectors are used to project the content of a monitor on the wall to make it visible to all participants. A severe number of concrete projects – in which this technology was used on a profes-sional basis – allow for an empirically profound presenta-tion of the benefits of LCD-projection. As it is shown, LCD brings substantial advantages in terms of cost, time, structuring, and participation. Practical issues of applica-tion are discussed in detail.
