When it comes to business presentations, projectors give you the biggest images for your buck. Make an impact on your audience by delivering your PowerPoint and Excel docs on a 150-inch screen. You've worked hard, show it off!
There are tons of business projectors on the market. Let us help you find the perfect one for you. Here's a quick look at the most common questions we're asked by business presenters:
Projector brightness is measured in ANSI lumens. A lumen is equivalent to the amount of light a birthday cake candle emits in a square foot-sized area.
How many lumens your projector needs depends on your audience size and the lighting conditions in the space where you're presenting.
Resolution and inputs are the most important factors for business users who want high-quality images. But keep in mind that the quality of your PowerPoint or Excel doc will make a big difference in the quality of your presented image. No matter how good a projector you buy, if you use low-res graphics they will look bad, especially when blown up on a 150-inch screen. Make sure you save your presentations at the highest available resolution.
Popular projector resolutions for business use include:
HD projectors have about twice the pixels of XGA and WXGA projectors. More pixels mean a sharper looking image and better compatibility with high-definition sources.
If image quality is very important to you, we highly recommend projectors with HDMI inputs. Even if your computer doesn't output in HD, an HDMI input will ensure your projector is future-proof.
Here are some of our most popular XGA, WXGA and HD projectors for business. All have at least one HDMI input.
Road warriors rejoice. Thanks to advancing technology, presentation projectors have become more portable than ever. Portable projectors weigh in around 3 to 8 lbs. and have footprints that are smaller than a laptop computer. Pocket or pico projectors are also available. These are super-portable, often weighing in at mere ounces. However, they are significantly less bright than their larger counterparts.
Projectors are plug-and-play, user-friendly and can be set up in a matter of seconds. In most cases all you will need to shine is a power outlet.
That said, some projectors have added features that can make your presenting life easier and more successful. Here are a few examples:
You may not require all of these bells and whistles, but keep them in mind when choosing the right projector for you.
