Best Projectors to Use for Hosting a Summer Birthday Party

At big birthday parties, having the ability to render beautiful family photos on a large scale can captivate people’s attention.  A slideshow that has a good mixture of sweet and funny pictures means that people will have something to help pass the time and spark off conversations with other friends or family members in attendance.


summer birthday 1


This summer, find a shady spot outdoors or a low-key room at your venue and set up a projector.

Here are some of the best projectors to use for a slide show or video montage at a summer birthday party:


Optoma EH515

If the projector isn’t bright enough, your photos will look washed-out and unimpressive, completely lacking the effect you are hoping to achieve.  The Optoma EH515 provides 5,500 lumens of brightness, making it capable of projecting in rooms with ambient light, which may be unavoidable if your birthday function is in a large room and the projector is only part of the festivities.



summer birthday 2

BenQ MH733

You will need to make sure that the projector can connect to the device your media is stored on, whether it’s a camera, laptop, MacBook or tablet.  The BenQ MH733, which is primarily intended for conference rooms, has many connectivity options:  VGA, USB, HDMI and more.  Other attractive benefits of this model include a brightness rating of 4,000 lumens and a price tag under one grand.


summer birthday 3Epson Home Cinema 1060

If you know that you will only need to project photos at the party, getting a 4K resolution projector is going overboard in terms of technology and price.  This Epson costs you less than $700 and provides 1920×1080 resolution, which will display your photos beautifully.  The brightness for this model is 3,100 lumens, so make sure you can control the ambient light in the room.

Best Projectors to Take on a Family Vacation or Summer Road Trip



Whether it is for a family vacation or a summer road trip, a portable projector is an affordable gadget that will ensure a good time, rain or shine!  As technology becomes more advanced, smaller projectors are offering better picture quality.




Below, are a few great portable projectors to choose from:




These three LG models are excellent selections in the “ultra short throw” category.  The throw distance range for these projectors can be as short as 2.5 to 18 inches while still projecting an image larger than most flat screens you find in hotel rooms.  Each model weighs in at less than seven pounds, which is convenient if you are flying and need to cut down on your baggage weight.  In terms of brightness, the LG PH450UG has 450 lumens, which is not excellent.  But the LG PF1000UW and LG HF85JA models have 1000 and 1500 lumens, respectively, which will be fine once you draw the shades.

Optoma ML750ST


This “pocket” projector fits in the palm of your hand and weighs less than two pounds, including the power block.  Still, this tiny device can project a 50-inch diagonal image at 34 inches from the screen.  The Optoma ML750ST has received glowing reviews of its image quality in spite of its 700-lumen rating.


Casio XJ-A257


The Casio XJ-A257 is a portable projector that packs a ton of features in a slim package.  The projector features Wi-Fi connectivity and 2 gigabytes of internal memory, provides 3000 lumens of brightness and can project at a distance as short at three feet.  All this in a five-pound projector!






This AAXA model is a 14 cubic square inch box that will be easy to pack for your trip.  At less than one pound, the AAXA HD projector will fit in the palm of your hand.  Though the projector’s brightness is only 50 lumens, its 17-inch minimum throw distance will fit perfectly in any space.

Best Projectors to Use for Museum Exhibits This Summer

More and more often, museums and galleries are required to put on elaborate, headline grabbing displays to attract visitors. Projectors are frequently the solution, which means that more advanced models are generally needed.




It is crucial to find the right projector for the job.  A projector that works well in your living room might not necessarily be the right model to use in a museum, which has large spaces with lots of ambient light.


Museums are keeping up with projector technology to enhance artistic expression.  This June, the Japanese multimedia art collective teamLab will open the Digital Art Museum in Tokyo.  Using 470 projectors and 520 computers, teamLab created a 107,600 square foot exhibit called ‘Borderless,’ which comprises more than 50 interactive art pieces.  The artworks aren’t separated but blend into one another within the rooms and corridors where they are displayed.




In the spirit of enhancing art with cutting edge technology, here are some of the top projectors for museums and art exhibits:


Sony VPL-PHZ10

This Sony projector offers 5,000 lumens of brightness, which will provide great illumination in nearly any light conditions.  With up to 20,000 hours of continuous operation, this projector is suited for frequent use that is typical of museums exhibits.  With Sony’s proprietary BrightEra 3LCD projection technology, the VPL-PHZ10 delivers vibrant color and fine-detail resolution.



Panasonic PT-RZ870

Available in July 2018, the Panasonic PT-RZ870 projector is capable of maintenance-free operation for up to 20,000 hours thanks to air-tight and dust-resistant optical units and cooling systems, making it ideal for museums.  This projector blends crisp and vivid imagining with 8,500 lumens of brightness.



Christie D4K3560

Now here’s something that will make you react like the subject in Edvard Munch’s The Scream:  this Christie model’s brightness reaches 35,000 lumens!  This, along with its native 4k resolution, makes the Christie D4K3560 ideal for large applications, including museums.



If you regularly use projectors in your museum or art exhibit, you’ll know the importance of sourcing replacement lamps. MyProjectorLamps offers the largest market!  We offer an unbeatable selection of high-quality replacement lamps at low, affordable prices.  Shop with us today and save!
