Home Cinema Projectors

There are many factors to be taken into account when choosing a projector for a home cinema: resolution, contrast ratio, brightness, screen format and size, connectivity, lamp life and type of chip (DLP or LCD).

Help To Choose The Best Projector For Your Home Cinema

There are many websites which deal with the technical details, but at The Solent Electronic Home we make sure that the projector we recommend matches the your needs and requirements without being over-specified for the job. This ensures that the chosen projector is cost-effective and will give years of satisfaction.

A projector suitable for presentations is not necessarily suitable for home cinema. This is because of the speed of response of the image generating chip and optics.

Home Cinema Projector Installation

Once selected, the projector has to be installed so that the image fills the screen and makes maximum use of the surface area available for the image. In this context it is important to know what your preferences are. Do you watch mainly TV? Mainly films? The aspect ratios of these are not the same and this has to be taken into consideration when choosing a projector.

It is also important to mount a home cinema projector in such a way that it does not interfere with the look of the room - for this reason some customers choose to have the projector hidden in an enclosure, or on a motorised mount.

Choosing a Home Cinema Screen

The home cinema screen also requires a lot of attention during the design phase. The required aspect ratio has to be carefully selected to match the type of video which will be watched. This is to avoid having acres of white screen which stays blank.

The screen has to be big enough to make the viewers feel immersed in the video without the amount of light available being too small for comfort, and the reflectivity of the screen has to be selected to make best use of the light available from the projector.
