What is the maximum throw distance (distance from projector to screen) allowable?
If you have a lot of windows in the room, the light coming in will affect the image on screen. In this situation a higher powered projector or LCD Screen would work best.
What resolution should your presentation be in?
If you are showing standard definition DVD or PowerPoint, then an XGA (1024×768) projector will work. If you’re content will be coming from a Blue Ray player or you have HD pictures then an HD (1920×1080) projector is needed.
What screen size should I use?
The size of the audience and the size of the projector are factors in what screens you should use. If your audience is 30 or less a small tripod screen would work fine. If you have more than 30 you can either go with 2 tripod screens, a larger tripod screen or one larger fast fold screen. Either way if you’re not sure we are always here to help.
These types of displays are popular because they are more convenient and don’t require the same amount of space as a conventional projector. You can plug a laptop, DVD or Blue-Ray player into them. They are often used when a location has bright natural light since they are unaffected by room lighting and deliver excellent picture quality for day-time events. You also might need them if any of your audience has an obstructed view of the main screen caused by pillars or are a far distance from the main screen. Plasma screens are automatically supplied with wheeled stands, but we can also suspend them from a truss with load bearing capability, on a desk stand or wall mount.
Guideline for deciding what size screen works best for your audience...
42” for tradeshows placed on stand or table
50” for presentations to audience +-20 people
60” for presentations to audience +- 50 people
85” for awards ceremonies and audience +-100 people
