TOP PROJECTORS FOR WATCHING AMERICAN THANKSGIVING FOOTBALL

Thanksgiving is a time to kick back with friends and family, stuff yourself with lots of food and watch football!  This Thanksgiving, there will be a triple header of NFL match-ups that will begin airing around noon and will continue until the late evening.

Whether you’re hosting a large family gathering or flying solo, you’ll need to make sure your projector is high quality and provides clear images.  You also want a projector that can render an image large enough for everyone to see and enjoy.  And when it comes to image quality, a projector with lackluster lumens or a low contrast ratio just won’t do the job.

With these factors in mind, here are our top recommended projectors for viewing football:

 

Epson Home Cinema 5040UB

 

The motion refresh rate on the Epson Home Cinema 5040UB is superior in quality; fast motion refresh rates are important as they give you a nice smooth picture where you can track the ball.  Moreover, this Epson model features an excellent 1,000,000 to 1 contrast ratio, 2,500 lumens, and three 1080p LCD chips.  And with Epson’s 4k-Enhancement pixel-shifting technology, the projector’s image looks closer to true 4K than 1080p.

TOP PROJECTORS AND TIPS FOR THE BEST VIEWING EXPERIENCE OF THE NEW NHL SEASON

Hockey is a game that offers lots of excitement, especially when projected on a large, bright screen.  Projectors are gaining popularity because they let you watch your favorite shows on a larger screen. However, watching hockey on these same screens can be a challenge unless you have the right projector. This is due to the fast movement of players on the ice, as well as difficult viewing of a black puck against a white background.

When choosing a projector for the 2018-19 NHL season, look for the following features:

  • High Resolution (4K Projection is the best but full HD capability is acceptable)
  • Detail Enhancement and Sharpening Features
  • Lens Shift
  • HDMI Connections
  • 2200 or More Lumens
  • Deep Blacks
  • Fast motion refresh rates (important for a nice smooth picture that allows you to track the puck)

TOP PROJECTORS FOR WATCHING THE 2018-19 NFL SEASON

On September 6th, the 2018 NFL season will kick off with the defending Super Bowl LII champions the Philadelphia Eagles playing host to the Atlanta Falcons.  What better way to watch the game than on a large projector screen?

Whether you’re hosting a party at your home or running a sports bar, you’ll need to make sure your projector is high quality and provides clear images.  You want a projector that can project from a distance that won’t impede viewing.  And when it comes to image quality, a projector with lackluster lumens or a low contrast ratio just won’t do the job.

 

With these factors in mind, here are our top projectors for viewing football:

 

Epson Home Cinema 5040UB

 

The Epson Home Cinema 5040UB has a 1,000,000 to 1 contrast ratio, 2,500 lumens, and three 1080p LCD chips.  And with Epson’s 4k-Enhancement pixel-shifting technology, the projector’s image looks closer to true 4K than 1080p.  In addition, the motion refresh rate on the Epson Home Cinema 5040UB is superior in quality, making it ideal for viewing sports.  (Fast motion refresh rates are important as they give you a nice smooth picture where you can track the ball.)  Furthermore, a throw distance of up to 29 feet will allow you the versatility of placing the projector wherever necessary.

Sony VPL-HW45ES

 

This Sony unit packs a lot of bang for your buck:  full HD 3D, 1920×1080 resolution and a wide variety of enhanced video processing features.  Among the benefits of the VPL-HW45ES is Sony’s Reality Creation technology, which enhances the quality of the images by selecting their best aspects and projecting them with a natural look; and Sony’s Creative Frame Interpolation, which smoothes the frames to keep up with fast-paced action.  The projector is large and heavy compared to similar models, and thus should be mounted overhead.  In addition, it has 1,800 lumens, which will be enough for a home theater.

Optoma EH415ST

 

The Optoma EH415ST has a 15,000 to 1 contrast ratio, 3,500 lumens, and a native resolution of 1920×1080.  The projector’s lamp is estimated to last for about 3,000 hours, which is superior to lamps installed in similar models.  This is a short throw projector; you can place it just over two feet away from the screen and still get a great picture.  The Optoma EH415ST features BrilliantColor Technology, which helps the display to appear natural and vibrant.

Top sports bar projectors for watching the new NHL season

The 2017-2018 NHL season got underway in October and has already provided plenty of entertainment for hockey fans. There will be much more excitement to come as the 101st season moves towards the playoffs in April, followed by the Stanley Cup Final in June. That means there’s lots of games to watch and if you’re unable to see them in person, you need to decide how to follow the action!

 

nhl playoffs

 

You could stay at home to watch the games with your local TV provider, but there’s always a much more exciting atmosphere when taking in a match-up at a nearby sports bar. However, it has to be a sports bar that offers a large enough picture size and high quality definition to make you feel like you’re actually at the game. Otherwise you’ll be sitting there squinting along with everyone else trying to figure out where the puck is.

This means that most sports bar owners should consider finding the right projectors for displaying games from the new NHL season. Here’s a few suggestions.

Sony VPL-VZ1000ES

 

Hockey is a fast paced game where the action can shift from one end of the rink to the other in seconds, so a good frame rate is essential to make sure fans aren’t left feeling frustrated and confused. This 4K model has 60 frames a second video performance, so there won’t be any problems with stuttering movement from NHL stars. With 2500 lumens of brightness it should also be bright enough to give a clear picture in most sports bars where there isn’t very much ambient light.

BenQ X12000

 

Another projector with an impressive 4K picture quality is this BenQ model, which also makes sure that fans will be able to tell the teams apart thanks to its incredible 8.3 million distinct color pixels. That makes it practically cinema-quality and any sports bar that splashes out with it will be delivering an amazing service for its patrons. It offers slightly less brightness at 2200 lumens, but again this should be enough for most venues.

Epson BrightLink 536Wi Interactive WXGA 3LCD

 

If the venue in question is one where it is difficult to block out competing lights and the brightness of the models above isn’t enough to deliver the required clarity, you need something like this Epson model, which has good image quality without being 4K, but most importantly it offers 3,400 lumens which will ensure that it isn’t defeated by ambient light.
