Projectors serve as excellent devices for creating a cinematic viewing experience within the comfort of your home. Not limited to just creating home theater-like environments, these devices are versatile for showcasing images and presentations on screens, walls, or specialized projector surfaces. Their portability and comparatively lower cost, in contrast to high-end televisions, make projectors a compelling choice while still offering impressive image quality and screen size. In this article, we’ll explore some of the top-notch and innovative projectors available through Croma.
Things to consider while buying projectors
Resolution: Resolution is one of the key factors when considering a projector. The higher the resolution the better the quality and clarity of the projected image or video. Projectors come with HD (1280×720 pixels), Full HD (1920×1080 pixels), and 4K (3840×2160 pixels) resolutions. Choose a projector that meets your specific needs and budget.
Brightness: A projector’s brightness is measured in lumens. This decides the maximum brightness of the displayed image. If your room is small, a projector with lower lumens will suffice, but if you want to project onto a relatively bigger screen and with relatively high ambient lighting, it is recommended that you choose a projector that has higher lumens for better visibility and clarity.
Projector technology: Projectors use different technologies for projection such as DLP (Digital Light Processing), LCD (Liquid Crystal Display), or LCoS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon). Each has its advantages and disadvantages. For instance, DLP projectors produce sharp images and have 3D capabilities along with faster response times. In comparison, LCD projectors offer higher color accuracy. The LCoS technology serves as the hybrid between the two and aims to strike a balance by combining their strengths.
Throw distance: When evaluating projector placement, the distance between the screen and the projector is crucial. In a confined space, a short throw distance projector might be adequate. Whereas achieving the desired image quality in a larger area might necessitate a projector with a longer throw distance.
Connectivity options: The projector should have various connectivity options including HDMI, USB, VGA, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth, so you can easily connect a wide range of devices such as laptops, gaming consoles, streaming devices, etc.
