High Definition Projectors

High Definition ProjectorsEverywhere you turn these days, you see HD media. TVs, computer screens, and even projectors. Yes, high definition projector rentals are all the rage! An HD projector features a resolution of 1920 x 1080 and has full 1080p high definition. What does this mean? It means an HD projector looks amazing compared to your standard, every-day projector with an 800 x 600 resolution. If you're considering renting or buying an HD projector, there are a few things to keep in mind.

First of all, you'll want to look at the projector's performance. You want any projector you invest time and money into to have excellent sharpness and clarity. When compared to a non-HD image, the HD projector will always win when it comes to picture quality, but there are some HD projectors that can't handle a good HD image and in that event, the image will appear soft, blurry, or cloudy. Images from quality HD projectors can be compared to those of HD DVD, Blu-ray, or other HD technology.

You'll also want to look at the projector's de-interlacing capability. If your projector's de-interlacing capability is poor, you'll have flickering and motion artifacts. Any quality projector will only project a solid, stable, image.

Lumen output is important for having a brighter picture. If you want to use your projector in a well-lit room, you'll need one with higher lumens to avoid a dull, transparent-looking image. Contrast ratio, which measures the brightest white to the darkest black, is also important. The higher the contrast ratio, the bigger the difference and the more realistic your image will look. This is great for dark scenes and vibrant colors. In addition, black levels, which refer to how rich the blacks will be, are important. Lower black levels can turn black images gray.

Some projectors have loud fans and that may not seem like that big of a deal but when your projector is running in a quiet room, that fan can seem even louder. If a projector is used at its maximum settings, the lamp will require more cooling, sending the fan into high-gear. Most people don't consider this when looking into a projector, but it's something you'll want to test when making a purchase.

Other things to consider: zoom lens, lens shift, connectivity, compatibility, warranty, and definitely where the projector fits into your budget. If you consider all of these factors when renting or buying a new projector, you'll find that a HD projector will not only meet, but exceed your expectations.

Aaxa's New Laser Pico Projector

Aaxa's New Laser Pico Projector Aaxa's new L1 Laser Pico Projector is a little more expensive than most pico projectors, but a higher price doesn't necessarily mean higher quality. As CNET points out in their review of the projector, "Pico projectors were supposed to be the next big thing, but they haven't taken off as quickly as some might have thought. Part of the problem is that while they're tiny, they just can't produce a bright enough image to be that useful."

The new Aaxa Tech L1 laser pico projector is small - just 2.1 inches tall, 4.2 inches wide, .8 inches thick and weighs about 170 grams - and the battery provides you with 90 minutes of use. It has a 800 x 600 resolution, comes with a 2GB thumbdrive, and in turn, offers the ability to play files directly from a USB thumbdrive. It can display AVI, WMV, MP3, JPEG, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and PDF files.

The positive traits pretty much end there. You can connect the projector to your laptop with a VGA adapter that is included, however, the cable is not. There is no room for a memory card. The interface is awkward and not easy to use and according to CNET, the picture quality is awful. As they explain it, for that much of a price hike, you're going to expect better than average, but the new Aaxa projector runs just like any other old pico projector. They describe the picture as "noisy" with a shimmering effect.

In addition, you can't project an image more than 26 inches wide. When made bigger, the image loses its brightness and sharpness. However, CNET says the projector isn't bad, just nothing to get excited about. In their words, " can buy a half decent laptop or an iPad for about $600 and both will produce much better image quality."

The projector is an entry-level projector so with any luck, Aaxa's next model will be better...or at least less expensive.

Boost Your Marketing Campaign with a Projector Rental

Boost Your Marketing Campaign with a Projector Rental

There are so many different ways to run a good marketing campaign these days but if you're a part of a small or medium business team, chances are you don't have a lot of money to spend, especially with today's economy. Keeping up with the big guns, while staying on budget, can be tough. You can't afford fancy equipment, but without it, your presentation gets lost in the mix. Fortunately there's a solution for your business marketing campaign needs: projector rentals.

Projector rentals are inexpensive compared to buying a projector. Why spend hundreds and thousands of dollars on technology you will only use a few times a year? When you rent a projector, you can pay daily or weekly rates, paying only for the time you need it. Renting a projector also helps you keep up with the latest technology. Say you buy a projector in 2010 and use it for a trade show in August and a big business meeting in December. By the time you use it again in 2011, there will be better quality projectors on the market and the projector you purchased will be outdated.

And of course one of the best features of a projector rental is how much time it can save you during your marketing campaign. You need everything to be right when you make a presentation, and that takes a lot of time and hard work. Do you really want to spend hours carrying your projector from place to place and trying to figure out how to set it up, what cord goes where, how it works, and where to plug it in? When you rent a projector from a rental firm such as, we deliver the projector of your choice to your destination, set it up, and when you're finished, we can get it and take it away so you don't have to.
