Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

QWhat is projector brightness measured in?
AThe brightness of a projector is measured in 'ANSI lumens'. Most projectors means for use in the dark have a rating of around 2,500-3,000 lumens. A higher rating than that means it will work better in brighter conditions, such as classrooms or in public.
QWhat does 'throw distance' mean for a projector?
AThrow distance is how far the projector can be placed away from the screen or projecting surface. The lower the throw distance, the closer the projector will have to be placed to get a good picture.
QWhat does 'contrast ratio' mean?
AThe contrast ratio is the ratio between the brightness of the brightest white and the brightness of darkest black that the projector can produce.A higher contrast ratio means that the projector can produce images with greater contrast so that they will appear more vivid.
QWhat is the average noise level for a projector?
AProjectors typically give off about 35-40Db of noise, making them very quiet - the noise of the projector definitely won't interfere with your movie!
