GREAT AUDIOVISUAL CHOICES = POWERFUL EVENT
What is it
A #Projector is an optical device uses rays of light and a system of lenses to cast images from slides or film onto a #screen.
The most common type of projector used for #events
is called a #video
projector. Video projectors are digital replacements for earlier types of projectors such as #SlideProjector and #OverheadProjector.
Questions you ask to find the right projector for your event
How Bright is Your Venue?
If your #event
is taking place in an entirely dark room, you might not need a very bright projector at all. However, if you plan to leave some lights on, or have dim lighting, a brighter projector could be in your future. Natural lighting will also make projected images hard to see, so you’ll need to avoid projectors that are too dim to give a strong image with the lights on. If you need some ambient light a brighter projector would also be a good idea.
What Size is Your Screen?
Big screen projectors need brighter bulbs because they have a larger area to fill. For example, a 2800 lumen projector would be fine for a screen up to 6 feet wide, but for a 10 foot wide screen you would need a 4200 or 4500 lumen projector. For screens up to 12 feet wide, a 5000 or 6000 lumen projector should do the trick. A brighter projector will allow everyone at your event can see the details clearly from all of the angles. The last thing you want is for the people in the back to come up after your event is over and tell you they couldn’t see anything!
Will there Be Front or Rear Projection?
If you plan on projecting your #media
from the front of the room, your projector won’t require as much light compared to rear projection. Since the light source is on the viewing side of the screen, the light bounces off and goes right into the viewer’s eyes – this means the projector doesn’t have to be as powerful. Rear projectors, on the other hand need to be brighter in order to fully project through screen to the other side. Attempting rear projection with a weaker projector could result in a blurry or dim image, which very well may ruin your event. As with large screens, if you’re planning on rea
