Over the last 10 years, projectors have taken advantage of new technologies to make them smaller, lighter, with higher brightness and deliver better image quality.
With the vast array of models and specifications available, it is now possible to more closely match the right projector to your requirements, which may include:
– intended use (business presentations, home theatre, game playing),
– technology (LCD, DLP, LCOS),
– throw distance (how close to the screen you can place the projector),
– and more…
What is the intended use of the projector?
Data, video, photos, or games.
How portable does it have to be?
Portable, ultra portable, fixed or desk/roof mounted.
What resolution do you need?
Ideally, you should match the projector’s native resolution (the number of physical pixels in the projector’s display) to the resolution you expect to use most often.
How bright should it be?
This will depend on the room size, room type and amount of light in the room. 1,000 to 1,200 lumen can easily give you a large, bright image, while a 2,500-lumen projector may be too bright and hard on the eyes, if you are in a large hall with high ambient light then you may need 4,000 – 5,000 lumen.
What technology do you want?
Today’s projectors are based on one of four imaging technologies: DLP, LCD, LCOS, and laser raster.
Do you need audio?
Do you need a big image in a small room?
Ultra Short Throw (1-2 metres), Short Throw (3-5 metres) Long Throw (for a large conference room or school hall) etc.
