Buying a Home Video Projector

For some, big screen televisions are simply not enough. They want bigger, they want better, they want the cinema experience at home. Luckily, video projectors have become much more affordable in recent years, making setting up a home theatre a totally viable option. Video projectors have also increased in quality, as more brands develop models to compete in this expanding market.

Whether watching a movie, playing video games or checking out the big game, home video projectors make the whole experience, well, epic. So, what should buyers think about when selecting a video projector? As with any big purchase, it's a good idea to do some research to find out what's new and what works best. When it comes to video projectors, there are two main types of technology used: DLP (Digital Light Processing) and LCD (Liquid Crystal Display). However, there are also other variants, including LCOS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon), D-ILA (Digital Imaging Light Amplification) and SXRD (Silicon Crystal Reflective Display).

Before making a choice, think about room size. Think about where the projector will be placed, and where the picture will be projected onto. While a flat white wall will do the job, a projector screen provides a better surface. Choose a projector with sufficient brightness (1,000 ANSI Lumens or higher), and a good contrast ratio for colour (at least 1,500:1 is good, but 2,000:1 or higher is excellent). Pixel density is also significant. Select a projector with a pixel density that matches the format, for example, viewing HD requires a projector with a pixel density of 1920x1080.
