Understanding Lumens and Resolution
When choosing a projector, brightness and resolution are important. The most common measurement of light are: Lumens, Lux, Foot-Lamberts, ANSI Lumens, and Nits. For large rooms or outdoor theaters, a higher lumen count is recommended to ensure a clear and bright image.
Resolution, on the other hand, refers to the number of pixels displayed on the screen and is measured in pixels. The higher the resolution, the sharper the image will appear.
Types of Outdoor Projectors: LCD, DLP, and LED
There are three main types of projectors: LCD (Liquid Crystal Display), DLP (Digital Light Processing), and LED (Light Emitting Diode). LCD projectors are known for their vibrant colors and sharp images, making them a popular choice for home theaters. DLP projectors use tiny mirrors to reflect light, resulting in a clearer and more detailed image. LED projectors are the most energy-efficient and have a longer lifespan than other types of projectors.
Factors to Consider When Choosing an Outdoor Projector
When choosing a projector, there are several factors to consider. The first is the intended use of the projector. The second is the size of the room or space where the projector will be used.
