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.

Viewsonic PJD7828HDL
Affordable, efficient and surprisingly capable given its price, this projector from Viewsonic has received critical acclaim. It boasts a full 1080p resolution, a 3200 lumens rating and a lamp life of around 4000 hours.

Optoma UHD65
If your projector budget is hefty enough then this impressive Optoma model might be worth adding to your wish list. It supports 4K resolutions and HDR playback, while also handling content from lower resolution sources admirably well. The 2200 lumens lamp and the 1,200,000:1 contrast ratio claimed by the manufacturer make it a competitive performer at its price point.

UHD65

 

LG HU80KA
Making its debut at the Consumer Electronics Show 2018, this is LG’s first ever projector to offer 4K playback. It also stands out from the crowd thanks to its unusual design and its 2500 lumens output. The optimal screen size it can produce at this brightness is 150 inches and it even has built-in speakers to provide audio playback, making it fairly decent as a portable projector option.

Optoma-UHD51A

 

BenQ CH100
For some people 4K is not the be all and end all of projector tech. Other features may be more important. The CH100 fits this brief, with a 30,000 hour lamp life in eco mode, wireless connectivity for media streaming and a low-noise fan which means it does not sound like a hurricane when it heats up during use.

BenQ CH100

 

Sony LSPX-A1
This model is another CES launch and costs as much as the average family car. But its jaw-dropping specifications are more than enough to justify the asking price. It is an ultra-short throw projector that can blast 4K footage onto walls and screens while sitting just 9.6 inches away from the surface. It also comes with an impressive 360 degree audio setup and a gorgeous outer body that makes it look more like a piece of furniture than a projector.

Sony LSPX-A1

Optoma UHD51A
While this projector may not quite match the other Optoma model in the list in terms of raw performance, it does outdo it in other areas. Specifically, the integration with Amazon’s popular Alexa voice controlled assistant is a really nice touch. This lets users control it with voice commands given to the Echo or Echo Dot smart speakers. The on board 4K chip is just the icing on the cake.

UHD51A

 

Viewsonic PX727-4K
This projector is designed to bring 4K to the masses, undercutting many of its rivals with a comparatively affordable asking price and a decent set of features. This is achieved thanks to some clever technical trickery which means that the sub-4K chip can actually hit higher resolutions without having a prohibitive price tag included.

Top 2017 Projector Models for Business Presentations

Finding the right projector is always a subjective matter, because what might be the best model for you to use in your home cinema won’t necessarily be the ideal one to have for using in a classroom. If you are buying a projector to use for business presentations, you won’t need it to deliver the very latest 4K picture quality or blast your eardrums with its high quality sound system; you have more practical needs and a top-of-the-range home entertainment projector might not be necessary.

 

business projector1

Here are some of the top rated projector models for business presentations available on the market:

 

Epson EX7235 Pro

 

An excellent projector model that is portable – it even comes with its own carrying bag for extra convenience – and requires very little effort when it comes to setting it up, which is always useful when arriving at a new location for a presentation. It delivers a good all-round projection for business presentations at a decent price range.

BenQ MX525 DLP

 

Another lightweight and portable model that will be popular with whoever needs to transport it around offices and locations. It also delivers 3200 lumens of brightness, ensuring that you shouldn’t have any problems with presentations in rooms with ambient light, something that can be an issue when you don’t necessarily have control over such things at external meetings, etc. Transporting projectors can be a nuisance, but this BenQ model will make it a breeze.

ViewSonic Pro8520HD

 

Here’s a problem with most business presentations – they’re boring. Keeping the attention of your audience in a large room while going through a PowerPoint presentation about corporate finances can be a struggle at the best of times, so you need a projector that will be on your side. This ViewSonic model delivers 5000 lumens of brightness, and won’t appear faded in a bright room. It also has HDMI ports in case you want to insert some video clips to wake the people who are drifting off at the back of the room.

Asus ZenBeam E1

 

If you want to go full-on in terms of portability, this Asus pocket projector is the one for you. It’s small and stylish look comes with 5 hours of battery life, so you shouldn’t need to plug it in unless your presentation is really going to be an epic one. It doesn’t have great brightness (150 lumens) as you would expect from such a small package, but it can project large enough images to make it a worthwhile option.

Top 5 projectors for viewing home movies

In an age where digital technology is taking us further and further away from our roots, it’s no surprise to see more and more people reaching back for a more authentic experience. That’s why record players and vinyls are flying off shelves, as people look for a physical connection with their entertainment. That kind of experience is what drives people to the world of projection to watch their home movies, rather than watching them on a laptop or the TV.

If you’ve ever seen footage of a cinema projector, with flickering lights sending the picture up onto the big screen, you’ll know the appeal of having your own projector, and what makes  The Avengers look good should also make your own home movies look good. The advantages of projecting these memories up onto your big screen are fairly self-explanatory, especially for sharing them with lots of friends and family.

 

There’s a lot of projectors to choose from when it comes to screening home movies, but we’ve narrowed them down to the best five options to give you a great picture and the kind of authentic experience you’re looking for.

 

Here are the top five projectors for viewing home movies:

1 – Sony VPL-VW520ES

 

If your budget is basically ‘go for it’, then this is the one for you. Sony’s projector is 4K native, which might not be exactly essential for your footage of childhood holidays, but sets you up nicely for big budget movies. The picture is almost beyond comparison for everything, which is important, the projector is well-built and looks stylish making it an all-round behemoth.

2 – BenQ W3000

 

Much (much) cheaper, this BenQ model is a great option for someone looking for good quality at a more affordable rate. It’s easy to set up, delivers an excellent picture for whatever kind of footage you’re screening, and increases the quality of your home movies to a reasonable extent. This one is ideal as a first step into the projector market.

3 – Optoma HD28DSE

 

Another budget model that delivers more than you might expect, this Optoma projector has its flaws (especially the internal speakers, which are not great) but it has the kind of image quality that will shine whether you’re watching a Hollywood classic or your own attempts at cinema verite.

4 – Epson Home Cinema 1440 1080p 3LCD

 

This projector brings excellent image quality with enough brightness to stop your home movies from being washed out by ambient light in the room. This makes it a great option for people who don’t have any plans to try and set up a special screening cinema in their house.

5 – Philips Screeneo 2.0

 

Much cheaper than the rest of the projectors we’ve mentioned so far, the Philips offers something completely different. It’s portable, so it’s small and lightweight, making it the kind of product you could take with you to share your home movies with friends or family at their homes. It also offers a decent picture quality and clear sound.

Recommended Projectors For Halloween

Halloween can be a fun time to get together with friends for a movie night. What better way to celebrate the festivities than by watching sequels of the movie Halloween or Friday the 13th ? Make some creepy snacks and drinks for your guests, then gather in a room together for a thrilling good time!

To get the most enjoyment out of a thriller or horror movie,  you’ll want to use a projector and movie screen that provides the best opportunity for a theater like experience. Here are a few tips for setting up your home theater just in time for Halloween:

 

  • Opt for a 3D projector as many spooky films are in 3D. Don’t forget to check to make sure the glasses are included. Some of the best and most cost-efficient 3D projectors include: the Optoma HD142x, the ViewSonic PJD7835HD and the Epson Home Cinema 200.

Optoma-HD142X

 

The Optoma HD142x

  • Ensure your projector provides quiet operation so that it doesn’t interfere with the sound effects of your movie. Additionally, purchase an audio system for surround sound and added effects to feel like you’re part of the action.

 

  • You will likely be watching your movie later in the evening so outdoor sunlight won’t be an issue. However, choosing a projector that offers a higher lumen rate for brightness can help prevent any light refection from other rooms in the house.

 

  • Make sure your projector provides HDMI input for your DVD player or offers connectivity to Netflix or Hulu to allow you to watch your movies.

 

  • If you plan to set things up outside, consider an outdoor projection screen with stand. While flicker free, they will aid in the viewing experience.
