If you want to take your movie nights to a whole new level, then a home theater projector will blow your movie socks off.
Experience the big screen at home with a 4k projector. These used to be only for movie stars with large budgets, but now you can invest in a quality home theater projector for a fairly low budget. One thing to keep in mind is that you will also need a good quality projector screen.
If budget is a concern, you can always start with a white wall and then later down the track upgrade to a projection screen to really get that movie theater experience at home.
Like TVs, home theater projectors have optimal viewing distances for high-definition (HD) and ultra-high definition. However, you actually need to sit closer to a 4K TV if you want to make the most out of the higher screen resolution. Still, if you want a mega screen then you’ll need the mega room to accommodate it.
ANSI lumens is basically the lamp brightness and is important for good contrast and picture quality, but crucial if you’ll be using your projector in a room with ambient light. Models range from 2000 lumens or less, which is quite dark, to over 4500 lumens which are suited to bright rooms.
If you’re using a projector in a well-lit room with windows, consider a projector with 3000 lumens mark or more. This will be usable at most times of the day.
