Which Projector will Work For Me?
  • choosing a projector is dependent on the followings:

    1)       Number of people watching at the same time

    a)      More people means bigger/expensive  projector ’cause some of the people will be standing further away from the screen. For them small screen might not be enough.

    b)      All people might not have the same quality vision. For example, I can see an image clearly when it is projected on a 42″ screen. Anything less, I will be straining my eyes.

    2)      Amount of light in the room.

    a)      At least the projection areas should have as much low light as possible.

    b)      If cant do it, you will have to go to our higher lumens projector.

    3)      Size of image you want.

    a)      To make the image bigger, you will have to move the projector away from the screen (is that correct?).

    b)      As you go away from the screen, light intensity will be reduced. To keep up with the brightness of image, you will have to rent a higher lumens projector. So smaller images can use a basic projector.

    c)       For larger images, you will have to spend more money.

    4)      Distance from the screen to the projector.

    a)      Some people dont have a choice, they can only put a projector 100 ft. away from the screen and have NO other option.

    b)      Its mean, you need special lenses, higher lumens projector (like HD8000).  Or, you only have 7 ft of distance but need 144″ of screen. Again, its means you need special lenses.

    5)      Rear or front projector.

    a)      All of our projectros are rear and front.

    b)      Tripod screen will not work with rear projectors. You will need a fastfold screen and a rear screen fabric

     

     

Remember

  • Lumens stands for brightness.
  • More lumens means more brightness.
  • Moving the projector away from screen make the image bigger.
  • Bigger image needs higher lumens projectors.
  • Higher lumens projectors are expensive.

Here is the bottom line:

Projector choice depends on the following:

1. Size of the image you want to make.

2. Distance of the projector from the screen.

3. Lighting Situation in the room.

    Factors to Consider When Renting a Projector

    Before you rent your next digital projector, a little research and homework should be done beforehand. When it comes to borrrowing the right digital projector for you, answering a few questions first will make the process more efficient.

    1. How many viewers will be watching at once?

    The answer to this question will help to determine the size of the image being projected so everyone can see the image clearly and easily. The more people watching (or a few people spread out in a wider area), the larger the image will need to be. As the image size increases, the light being projected will extend across a larger area, which lowers the projector’s apparent brightness.

    Brightness is measured in Lumens when it comes to projectors. As the number of people watching increases, so does the number of Lumens. The majority of projectors rented in our store feature anywhere between 1500 to 3000 Lumens. More professional-grade projectors (3600 and up) are much brighter and produce a sharper image.

    Knowing how many people will be viewing the image will help you establish how many Lumens are required, as well as the best screen size for the image being shown.

    1. How much light will there be in the room?


    Regardless of the brightness of the projector, the image will always look best in a dark room. However, it’s still necessary to have a certain amount of lighting in a room for audience engagement and note-taking.

    Consider the following rule of thumb when it comes to renting a projector based on your specific lighting scenarios:
    • No ambient light - 1,000 to 1,400 Lumens
    • Dimmed ambient light  - 1,500 to 2,000 Lumens
    • Normal ambient light - 2,100 to 3,500 Lumens
    If you choose to have your presentation take place outdoors, it’s recommended to have your screen totally shaded.

    1. What is it’s intended use?


    What exactly you’ll be showing will establish the right native resolution for your projector:
    • Large text or images with less detail - SVGA resolution projectors (800 x 600)
    • Displaying detailed PowerPoint slides, and normal-sized font - XGA resolution projectors (1024 x 768)
    • Displaying digital photography, HD applications or other highly technical images - SXGA (1280 x 1024) or SXGA+ (1400 x 1050)
    • Watching DVDs in low light conditions - Optoma MovieTime Projector

    At the end of the day, the ideal projector resolution is the computer’s resolution that you’ll be using with it.
