Questions to consider when purchasing a projector

  • Cost Home Theatre projectors can be broadly placed into 3 categories; under $1000 will get you a good non full High Definition projector or a low featured Full HD Projector. Between $1000-$4000 Will get a very good Full HD projector with a good number of features $4000-$20000 and beyond will get you a projector for the more devoted Image watcher who requires top notch image control. When deciding on a projector also take into consideration the cost of a new Lamp as these need replacing every few thousand hours.
  • Resolution Ultra High Definition 4096×2160, 3840×2160 or 4K is the newest and greatest standard although content is still scarce and expensive. Full High Definition 1920×1080, 1080i and 1080p is the common bench mark for good Full HD image sources such as from a Blu Ray. 1280×720 is ideal for displaying images from a computer, XGA and WXGA are the common computer resolutions however when playing video content there will be small black bars at the top and bottom of the image. 1280×720 Is Ideal for watching DVD quality images and is on the lower end of the resolution spectrum.
  • Brightness The projected light from a projector is Measured in ANSI Lumen. The further the projector is from the screen, or if the room has a lot of ambient light the brighter the projector will need to be. The type of screen will also play a large part in the perceived brightness of the image
  • Contrast Is the number of shades the projector has between a perfect white the deepest black
