Choosing a projector
Choosing a projector can be a confusing task. Here we just want to cover the basic (most relevant) projector features, please see the individual guides for detailed information. First write down all the features you need. We have over 500 projectors on the Projectisle site giving you the biggest selection in Australia. Each one has features you may or may not need. If your on a budget and you don't need a feature don't pay for it! e.g. if the projector is going to be ceiling mounted it doesn't have to be the most compact portable machine and if you have a dark room you won't need the Brightest projector.
OK, lets establish a number of facts before you start your search.
time, think ahead and consider the choice.
Consider the following:
Projectors for different sized venues
Home Theater - lower lumen projectors that focus on great colour reproduction with high contrast
Small Venue - School classrooms and conference room projectors a brightness up to 4500 lumens
Medium Venue - School classrooms and conference room projectors with 4500 to 8000 lumens
Large Venue - Universities, Auditoriums and Outdoor projectors 8000 lumens and up
If you are looking for a short throw projector for a confined space or need to speak in front of a class without interrupting the image look at:
Short Throw - 0.5 - 1.0:1 Throw ratio (0.5:1 = 2 meter image width at 1 meter throw distance)
Ultra Short Throw - below 0.5:1 Throw ratio (0.5:1 = 2 meter image width at 1 meter throw distance)
Interactive projectors - below 1:1 Throw ratio (0.5:1 = 2 meter image width at 1 meter throw distance)
Throw distance is the distance from the projector's lens to the screen.
The further away from the screen the projector is positioned, the larger
the image will appear and the greater the light source needs to be to
compensate for the light dispersion. In certain instances you may need
to chose a projector with optional lenses.
The resolution of projectors is categorized like computer monitors. You can just choose a projector with the same resolution as the laptop you intend to use it with. You should also consider the type of presentations you might make on it.
Will your projector be positioned in a venue on a permanent basis, will it move from room to room in the same building, or will it take to the road? Obviously the more your projector will have to be moved, the lighter it should be.
