Best Projectors and Tips for Hosting an Outdoor Movie Night

It has become a common summer activity to screen movies in your backyard with a projector, which is a lot easier than hauling your TV outside.  However, you need to make sure you know what you’re doing before you gather an audience that includes family and friends.  Have you found a level area to set up the screen and projector?  A hill is great for seating, but the movie set-up should be on flat ground.  Also, consider the light and sound that will be generated by your party and whether or not these things will disturb your neighbors (if they aren’t joining you).

Below is our list of other technical tips for using a projector and the best projectors for an outdoor movie night:

 

  1. You’ll need to wait for dusk, which in summer can be as late as 9 pm. To start watching your movie earlier, you need a projector that has a brightness of at least 3,000 lumens.  The more lumens, the brighter the image will be and the less of a factor the ambient light will be.

 

Optoma HD143X

The highly rated Optoma HD143X is new for 2018, and with its 3,000 lumens you will see it all.  It has HD resolution and supports 3D viewing, among other great features.

  1. Before you purchase a projector, consider the media player you will use. Most people will find DVD/Blu-Ray players, laptops or USB sticks the most useful; thus, most home theater projectors connect to them easily.  However, if you can only stream your selected content wirelessly, you will need to verify that your projector has the ability to deliver.

BenQ TK800

This BenQ model has many connectivity options, including one that isn’t common among projectors of its kind:  HDCP 2.2 compatibility.  This means that if you’ve downloaded an HD movie to watch you won’t be thwarted by the file’s digital rights management security features.  Other attractive benefits of the BenQ TK800 include a brightness rating of 3,000 lumens and 4k resolution.

  1. You need a projector that will be easy to set up and one that will create the picture size you need. Depending on how you set up your outdoor theater, you may need a projector that can be placed close to the screen or farther away.

ViewSonic PX747-4K

This ViewSonic projector has a wide throw distance range, projecting as close to the screen as four feet or as far away as 32 feet.  It has excellent brightness (3,500 lumens) and features 4K resolution.
