Big screen TVs with 3D capabilities for movies and games are almost a requirement for home theatres if you want to experience epic entertainment. It can be much more expensive, however, to purchase a high-definition big screen TV than it would be to get a projector and a screen with higher resolutions. By using projectors that are equipped with different technology you’ll get a better display than you would with expensive and large TVs.
Unlike a TV, a projection unit has two components including the projector and a screen to reflect what is coming from the projecting machine. To enjoy a perfect high-definition display, you’ll need to get the right screen that matches the type of projector you have.
The right screen
When purchasing a screen, you’ll have different features to consider with the first one being the size. Many people don’t consider the size of their TV rooms before purchasing and all they end up with later is frustration when assembling the TV unit. It‘s recommended that you first do some research about the size of the screen that would best fit into your room first. If the screen is too big the picture will be distorted during viewing and if too small you won’t be completely satisfied with your purchase.
Screen gain is how much reflection of light is produced in comparison to an unchanging surface. If screen uniformity is not controlled, the clarity of the image is affected. This must also be considered when buying a projection TV. The other factor to take into account when deciding on a projector screen is the material used to make it. Not all screens are made of the same products and the right choice will depend on the quality of the picture you are looking for and your budget.
Some TVS require the speakers to be mounted on the side while others will need them attached to the sides. Rigid screens, resembling plasma screens, are your best choice if you are worried about losing clarity when speakers are mounted.
All rooms aren’t the best for the projection type of TV sets.For instance, if you’re using a projector in a room with too much lighting, the images will appear washed out. You’ll have to control the amount of light entering your TV room in order to use the projector properly.
Give your eyes a break
Unlike TV screens, watching a projector screen is easy on the eyes. You probably won’t experience the same type of burning eyes that can turn on from watching a regular TV for a prolonged period of time. If you have difficulty with your eyes when watching TV, a projection unit may just solve this problem for you.
Finding the right match of projector and screen will enhance your viewing experience by providing good picture clarity. If you are looking for a better home theatre experience, try a projector TV and see what a difference it can make in any room size.
