Ultimate Big Screen Enjoyment in Any Space

A home theatre projector is the ideal entertainment choice for movie lovers. And it’s easy to choose the perfect projector for watching movies, playing games, and family fun. It only takes three steps to find the right projector for amazing viewing experiences and quality family time. Firstly, check the room size for projection distance. Secondly, find a projector based on installation position. Finally, select a projector for viewing with lights on or off. With these 3 steps, you can find a perfect home theater projector for your home.

Step 1 : Choose a Projector Based on Room Size and Placement Location

To select the best projector for your family’s needs, determine the size of the room where it will be used. The position of the projector and the maximum distance to the screen is an important consideration when choosing a projector. For small to medium homes, the distance from the projector to the screen is typically between 1.5 and 2.5 meters, and a short-throw projector such as the BenQ short throw series can project 100-inch screens in cosy spaces. For larger homes, a standard throw projector can project a 100-inch screen from a distance between 2.5 and 4 meters.

Step 2 : Find a Projector Based on Installation Position – in Front or on the Side

For the most comfortable and enjoyable movie experience, it’s important to consider how the space is used in addition to room size, Depending on furniture layout and how your family moves about in the room, it may be more convenient to place the projector to the left or right side of the screen to avoid obstructions in the projection path and to allow your family to move freely. In such cases, look for home theatre projectors with horizontal keystone correction and side projection capability to project perfectly aligned images from the side. If the projector can simply be placed on a table or ceiling mounted in front of the screen, choose a model with vertical keystone correction to simplify ideal image alignment for maximum big screen entertainment without any need to change your décor.

Step 3 : Select a Projector for Viewing With Lights on or Off

Have you heard that you have to turn your lights off to watch movies using a projector? In fact, today’s projectors can deliver wondrous home cinema experiences in a variety of lighting conditions to accommodate your family’s needs. The key is the brightness output of the projector. To replicate a theatre-like moviegoing experience with all lights off, or with a small amount of ambient light, choose a model with 2,000~2,400 lumens of brightness. To enjoy movies with lights on for family members to interact and move about freely, a high-brightness home theatre model with more than 3,000 lumens is the best choice.
