When purchasing a projector, whether for home use, office, or even just for fun, it’s important to consider the individual projector screen. Projectors are considerably more affordable than they have been in the past, ranging from around 200E for a mid-range model, to 1000 for advanced, near cinematic industrial grade projectors. There are a number of options to choose from; if you are looking for an hd projector, it makes sense to choose based on screen size; hd projectors are capable of projecting onto very large screens, but are also necessary to run HD media of any kind. It’s important to consider that the best HD projectors will be capable of displaying 6 times the pixels of a standard resolution projector, and often have superior sound quality. However traditional projectors are often entirely sufficient for home and office use; the advantage of HD for Powerpoint presentations, except perhaps in very high end conference level presentations, is limited, as is its advantage for fast moving video games. There are disadvantages, however, related to environment; significant ambient lighting makes standard video projectors less viable in locations with 2000 or more on the lumen rating scale. When compared to big screen televisions, however, they offer significant advantages in cost effectiveness; a 200 projector can display a picture 2.3 times the size of a 1500 plasma television, for a fraction of the cost. It can also expand standard, non HD images to a large scale much more aesthetically to how to choose the best projectors for a home.
Perhaps the most critical factor in projector purchases is picture quality. The picture quality of your chosen projector can make a huge difference on the viewer, and can make the difference between a cinematic experience and not being able to follow the events onscreen. For the best in movie quality and experience, you should choose a projector with at least a 16:9 format, the widescreen standard. Ceiling mounts will also play an important role, as traditional projectors are frequently seen by focus groups as an interference, being visible and between the audience and the screen. A sturdy and dynamic Ceiling mount can make the critical difference between being blown away and providing an enjoyable movie experience to friends and family, and feeling like you’re watching grainy still image slides from the 1960s.
Sound quality is also important for projectors. While possibly a non issue if you have an existing quality sound system, but if you can’t, make sure to choose a projector capable of 150db or more; modern projectors produce much less natural noise than they used to, but ambient fan volume can reach 30db, something that could easily interfere with the quality of the movie if not overcome by the sound projection system.
