Most people have no idea how to go about buying the necessary equipment to set up a home theatre and end up buying expensive but not really suitable items that don’t provide the best visual experience for them. Whether you need a projector to watch movies at home or to show a video that you had especially made to be shown at your nieces wedding, you must do your research and go for one that will provide you with the best display in keeping with the location you have selected to use the projector.
If it’s a portable projector that you’re keen on, there’s not much you can do because it will be a model that can be used in almost any place since you will be taking it everywhere and setting it up in locations you have no idea about. But on the other hand, if the projector is for your own enjoyment to watch movies online, you have enough and more options to choose one that will give you the most amount of service and pleasure in the long term. Think carefully where you want it mounted and make sure you get the projector mount that is compatible with the equipment because you surely don’t want the thing to come crashing down in the midst of watching an exciting movie with your friends.
Next we come to the projection screen which once again comes in different types and models that can be fixed on the wall, ceiling, manually operated or electronically operated in keeping with your budget. The last no doubt is the best if you can afford it. Because all you have to do is set it up and roll it down when you’re ready. If it’s a home theatre you’re planning and your resources are low, your best option is to have a wall of the room painted either in off white or grey because they are the best colors to reflect light. Most people these days go for the LCD projection screen because it’s supposed to be the best in terms of resolution, contrast ratio and brightness and will be right down your lane if you’re also buying an LCD projector.
Among the various LCD projector accessories that you can buy are the projector lamps which some consider the most important out of all projector accessories. I’m not sure why this is, but the lamps are definitely an important part of projector equipment because they are the main source of light for the projector. But they don’t last forever and it’s in your best interest to have some lamps on standby in case they go out suddenly. Some people buy lenses which they say help increase the functionality of the projector and provide for a brighter display of colors. But remotes are accessories we can all do with to adjust the settings on the screen, and various other features from the comfort of your couch when you’re too lazy to get up and go.
