What do you have to consider before you buy a home theater projector?
The first thing you should consider before you buy a home theater projector is the space. Is your room big enough to put a projector in there? You need some space between screen and projector! A very important specification of projectors is the “throw ratio”. For example you have a 10 meter wide screen and you put the projector 15 meter away from the screen you’ll need a throw ration of 1.5:1.
The most important thing you have to consider when buying a projector is the ambient light of your room. The darker the better! Look for the output brightness when you buy a projector (it’s specified in Lumens). The more ambient light you have in your room the more Lumens your projector will need. With high ambient light you will need about 3000 Lumens, with some ambient light around 1500 and if your room is dark you just need about 1000 Lumens. The closer your projector is to the screen the fewer Lumens it will need.
Other things to consider
If you want to buy a projector a assume it’s for your new Home Theater, so don’t forget the connectivity! Look for what you need.
After buying the projector you don’t have everything you need. Don’t forget the screen and other peripherals you’ll need.
You will have to buy every year or so a new lamp for your projector so inform you about that.
So… all in one: you have to find the right projector for your room! Now you can do that.
