Best Video projectors for 2021
In this article we will review the Best Video Projectors for 2021. In offices and educational institutions, projectors are the best way for displaying video presentations, while at homes they take the entertainment to the next level by offering a large screen size.
Buying a projector is not a very difficult task, and you only have to look for the following points in a projector:
- Type of Projectors: There are three types of projectors:
- DLP Projectors: These projectors are also known as Digital Light Processing projectors. They have a chip consisting of microscopic mirrors and a color wheel. The light has to pass the wheel and the mirror to get projected.
The advantages of DLP projectors include lower response time and sharp images.
- LCD Projectors: These projectors have a source of light which has to pass through primary red, blue and green chips to get projected. These projectors produce less noise and excellent saturation. However, they don’t have as much contrast as the DLP projectors.
- LED Projectors: LED projectors to consume less power and produce better colors. They don’t deliver as much brightness as compared to DLP and LCD projectors.
- Light Source: Projectors use any of the following three light sources:
- Most Affordable.
- Last up to 3 to 4 thousand hours
- Produce very bright images
- Last for an infinite number of hours
- Produce a wide range of colors
- Consume less energy
- The Contrast ratio is better than lamps
- Bulbs work for up to twenty-thousand hours
- Produce less noise
- Consume less energy
- Brightness: The brightness of a projector is measured in Lumens, and it is always wise to choose a projector with high lumen ratings. Such projectors can display brighter images as they have sufficient light output.
Generally, 2000 lumens are sufficient for all types of environment.
- Contrast Ratio: Contrast ratio is the measure of the difference between the brightness of a bright portion and a dark portion. In simple words, a contrast ratio of 1000:1 means that the brightest image is a thousand times brighter than the darkest image.
The contrast ratio of projectors varies from 500:1 to even 10000:1. You should always choose the one with a high contrast ratio as projectors with a low contrast ratio are unable to produce clear images when the lights present in the room are too strong.
- Resolution: Just like in cameras, a projector with higher resolution delivers images with higher clarity and details. High resolutions make it easier to see graphs and charts clearly from a significant distance. While most commonly used resolutions in projectors is 720p (1280*720 pixels), home theatre projectors use 1080p (1920*1080 pixels).
Some latest high-end projectors also provide a 4K – resolution.
- Throw Ratio: The distance between the screen and the projector is known as the throw distance. While projectors with long throw distance are best for playing movies, projectors with short throw distance are best for office projection and traveling
- Inputs: While buying a projector, always look for what connections does the projector supports. While all projectors now come with HDMI inputs, some even have VGA and DIV inputs.
In the upcoming sections, we’ll be looking at some of the most popular video projectors in the market and see their advantages and disadvantages.
