How To Choose Your Projector for home cinema

There are a host of models available from manufacturers such as Benq, Epson and Hitachi. And. like most electrical devices, projectors have different specifications and to compare them buyers generally look at the resolution, brightness and aspect ratio.

Brightness

The brightness of a projector is measured in lumens. Basically the higher the lumens the brighter the projector. Something to consider here is that a brighter projector can display more detailed images so are ideal for showing technical information whereas viewing TV or movies doesn't require such a bright projector.

It is also advisable to consider where the projector will be sited. As a very rough rule of thumb the larger the room the brighter the projector will need to be. And, as a projector performs best in a darkened space, a projector with a lower lumens rating can be used if you are able to control the level of lighting. For lighter rooms a higher lumens rating will be required.

Resolution

The higher the resolution the better the quality, or detail, of the image projected. There is a range of resolutions from which to choose including SVGA (800x600), XGA (1024x768) and widescreen WXGA (1200x800) which are the most common resolutions available.

Aspect Ratio

Put simply the aspect ratio of a projector is the width of the image in relation to its height. There are two common aspect ratios; 4:3 which is usually best for business or classroom use and 16:9 which is best for home cinemas. A third option is 16:10 which is designed for use with widescreen computers.
