Over the years, I have grown really attached to my home theater system. I
must say, of all the rooms in the house, my own little movie theater is the
one I could not live without. I am absolutely in love with my home theater
system and, if you are anything like me, I am sure you will love yours too.
I found, when I was initially building my system, that there was so much
information to absorb. Every product out there seemed better than the next,
and I found myself unsure about which to buy. Here are a few things to keep
in mind when shopping for a new home theater projector.
There are two main types of projectors on the market; DLP and LCD. DLP
stands for digital light processing. It was invented by Texas Instruments,
and utilizes a microscopic array of over 2 million mirrors. DLP has a
higher contrast than LCD, but there are some unfavorable consumer reports
that note something called the “rainbow effect”. The “rainbow effect” is
noticeable when looking from one side of the screen to the other, and is
characterized by a sudden burst of color.
LCD stands for liquid crystal display. These projectors have three distinct
glass LCD panels inside; one for each component of the video signal (red,
green, and blue). While DLP chips reflect light, the LCD panels allow light
to pass through them. LCD projectors produce brighter images, and they are
known for having excellent color saturation. In the end, you will be
hard-pressed to notice a great difference between the two types of
When shopping for a new projector, keep your particular needs in the
forefront of your thoughts. As I mentioned above, it is really easy to lose
yourself in the minutiae of each particular system. Connectivity is a
definitely something to be mindful of. Make sure that you are able to
connect all of your components, including your gaming system. Nothing beats
playing Halo in real-life size! Contract ratio is another important factor;
the higher the ratio, the better the picture will be.
The brightness of your projector is another thing to consider. Light output
is measured in ANSI (American National Standards Institute) lumens. You
will want to avoid a projector that produces anything shy of 1000 lumens.
As you are likely aware, the projection resolution is extremely important.
This refers to the number of pixels that can be displayed on the screen. Go
for something that is no less than 1024×768, as this will allow you to
fully appreciate the depth and quality of HDTV. In the end, you should buy
the projector that is in line with your needs and your budget. Soprano’s is
coming on right now! Time to go!
