So we can provide you with a bespoke recommendation that will truly work for you, we’re in contact with a range of different brands, all who bring something different to the projector market.
Projectors vary in their performance, power and maintenance requirements. Different brands and models will vary in their brightness, picture quality, aspect ratio, lamp life and cost. Whether you’re looking for a VGA, SVGA, WXGA, 4k projector, 4k ultra HD or HD ready projector, we can talk you through your options and make a bespoke recommendation.
Just a few notable brands we’re in contact with include:
A short-throw projector is placed closer to the projection screen, instead of further back into the audience, it keeps the wires and equipment away from the audience and prevents shadows being cast on the screen. It’s a great projector for businesses, classrooms or as a home cinema projector.
These portable projectors are great for smaller applications such as workplaces or home cinemas and are typically placed between 10 and 70 cm from the screen which keeps people from tripping over wires, great for creating a neat and tidy AV setup in a smaller space.
DLP is a type of projector technology that uses a chip made of tiny microscopic mirrors and a spinning colour wheel to create an image. DLP projectors deliver sharp picture quality, don’t need any filters, have a better response time as well as 3D capabilities. The effective lamp life of a DLP projector is around 2000-4000 hours.
LCD projectors are a great, cost-effective projector that uses liquid crystal displays, have no moving parts. If you are on a budget a single chip LCD projector is ideal while 3-chip LCDs offer better colour saturation, lower noise levels and work better for movies.
LED projectors have a lifespan of over 20,000 hours. They deliver better colours, have lower power consumption and virtually zero maintenance costs. LED projectors are also a smaller projector that generates less heat. LED projectors have limited brightness compared to LCD or DLP so they are not recommended if your room has a lot of ambient light.
LCoS projectors are a hybrid between DLP and LCD, producing high-resolution images with a good contrast ratio. Popular for living room cinemas, these projectors vary in price, with LCoS models at both ends of the budget.
These full HD projectors provide excellent picture quality with high brightness and contrast ratio. You’ll enjoy an efficient and reliable operation of about 3000-6000 hours. Whilst the upfront cost for this projector is at the higher end of most budgets, the maintenance costs are generally low.
To minimise any issues you have with running or maintaining your AV equipment, our engineers will create a bespoke and accessible AV setup that’s easy to use and operate. They will run through all the equipment with you and provide a full training session on operating the system with both yourself and your team.
Regular checkups are a great way to prevent small system issues that can develop into a costlier problem. For this reason, we offer two maintenance packages: a one-off health check and a comprehensive AV maintenance cover which includes ongoing checkups and protection for your equipment.
We understand that choosing the right equipment for your AV system can be confusing, which is why our friendly engineers are available 7 days a week to chat about what you’re looking for and offer a professional recommendation that might suit your requirements. For more information about our projectors and projector screens or to enquire about our other AV services, get in contact today via phone: 01279 445577 or the contact form.
A mid-range Epson or Optoma projector is ideal for home-use since. The Epson Home Cinema 2150 and the Optoma HD146X Full HD Home Cinema Projector are both great, versatile projectors that are easy to use and available at reasonable prices.
2. Is a projector better than a TV?
Often, the picture quality on a good TV set will be better than you would experience on a projector screen. However, people often choose to invest in a projector over a TV for its size, comfortable viewing experience and more affordable cost. Whether a projector is better than a TV ultimately depends on how much money you are willing to invest into either.
3. What’s the best projector to buy?
The best projectors have a good Lumens rating with a contrast ratio of at least 1,500:1. For an excellent picture quality, choose a projector with a contrast ratio of 2,000:1 or higher. You will also notice a significant difference in the picture quality of a projector that offers 4K motion processing.
4. Is it worth getting a 4K projector?
In comparison with 1080p technology, 4k projectors can deliver almost four times the number of pixels on a screen. If you care about heavily picture quality and are happy to invest in the considerable price tag, then it is worth it. If not, then you can find yourself a standard, 1080p projector that will produce a great quality picture for considerably less money.
