High Definition Projectors - 1080p

1080p High Definition ProjectorsProjectors are now following the latest trends of High Definition Media and many HD projectors are now available to the consumer at prices previously unheard of. High Definition projectors feature a resolution of 1920x1080 and all bring with it Full High Definition 1080p meaning they will look amazing when compared to a standard 800x600 SVGA projector.

When looking to buy a high definition projector, there are many various performance features and characteristics you should consider.

The first and most important aspect of a projector that everyone will notice the instant you power it up is the Sharpness and Clarity of High Definition Images. Something that must be taken into consideration is that it will be hard to compare image quality unless the source is from a 1080p format such as HD DVD, Blu-ray, or other equivalent. If a standard non-HD image is used for comparison, it will be nearly impossible to tell the difference between HD projectors. A HD projector that cannot fully handle a HD image will have an apparent softness, and the image will have a slightly blurry or cloudy look to it as well as display digital noise.

Other characteristics of a projector that should be considered before purchase is the Contrast Ratio, Lumen Output, Deinterlacing, Black Level, Zoom lens, Lens shift, Connectivity and Compatibility, Audible fan noise, warranty, and of course the price.

By taking all of these 1080p High Definition Projector Tips into consideration, and determining which features are most important to you, then you will will be completely satisfied with whatever purchase you decide to make.

3 Projector Rental Tips

There are a few things to keep in mind when renting a projector.

The most important thing to remember when renting a projector is that you need to match the brightness of your projector with the size of your room and audience. The brightness of a projector is measured in lumens as described in an earlier post. Most projectors range from about 1000 lumens to 5000 lumens. A 1000 lumen projector is very practical for giving presentations in some ambient light. A 5000 lumen projector would be used for large events like conventions and trade shows where there may be up to a thousand people viewing.

Another important thing to keep in mind is the portability of your projector. The more lumens your projector has, the less portable it is. High lumen projectors are often larger and weigh more leading to less portability.

The last thing to think about when renting your projector is whether to get a LCD projector or a DLP projector. In general, you will be making a decision between full motion video and static data. If you are presenting video with your projector then DLP is the way to go. If you are presenting a powerpoint or detailed spreadsheets, then LCD should be your pick.

Wireless Projectors - The Future is Here

Wireless ProjectorA few decades ago there's little doubt that a wireless video projector had never been envisioned. Now that wireless projectors are here, there can be little doubt that this is the standard that all future portable projectors will need to live up to.

Wireless projectors work using 802.11 technology. IEEE 802.11 is a set of standards for wireless local area network (WLAN) communication, usually referred to as just 802.11, or perhaps more commonly known as "Wi-Fi". Some other common Wi-Fi enabled devices include PCs, game consoles, cell phones, MP3 players and PDAs.

In the case of wireless projectors however, they are most commonly used in conjunction with a laptop, used to control and send the media the projector is to display. The obvious benefit of this duo is the portability and the ease of setup. The combined weight of a laptop and an Ultraportable Wireless Projector is less than 20 pounds, so it's as easy as carrying them in the door, setting them down, and turning on your laptop to begin with a presentation. The future is here, and it works without wires.
