The importance of projectors and project screens in the modern world cannot be overemphasized. The equipment have staked a claim in various sectors and are widely useful. They are a plus to offices and are used for presentations, lectures and other similar activities. The entertainment world has also enjoyed it in the cinemas and other similar environments.
Consider the size of the Room – Before buying a video projector screen, you should take a look at the room you will be placing it in. Make sure the room is of adequate size to project a big image on the wall area where you aim to place your screen. Check for ambient light sources including the windows, doors, or other factors that would thwart the room from being dark enough for a great video projection experience.
Consider the Projector you’d be using it with – This factor is also very important. Although resolution and lens placing tools are vital in video projectors, they also need adequate white and colour light output to project a bright image on your screen. Without sufficient light output, an image will look cloudy and soft, even in a dark room. To decide if a projector outputs sufficient light to yield bright images, you should check the ANSI Lumens rating. This will show how much light that a projector can put out. A projector with about 1,000 ANSI Lumens or more have adequate brightness for home theatre use.
Consider the Screen material – Video projection screens are designed to mirror as much light as possible to yield a bright image in a particular type of environment. To achieve this, screens are made of diverse materials. The type of screen material used defines the Screen Gain, ambient light rejection (ALR), and viewing angle features of the screen.
Portable Screens – Projector screens vary in sizes and prices. The least luxurious option is the very handy screen. One plus of a portable screen is that you can set it up in various rooms, or even outside if the projector is also handy. The disadvantage is that you have to do more altering of the screen and the projector whenever you set it up. Portable screens are available in various configurations.
