Key Features

Noise Level

The noise level of the projector is the amount of noise that the projector makes (caused by the cooling fan inside the projector) when it is running.

A lower noise level means that the projector will be quieter when it is running. This means that you will be able to appreciate the quieter parts of films better without the background noise of the projector running. Most projectors have a noise level between 30 and 40Db, which rates them as 'very quiet' by Industial Noise Control - on par with low bird calls, or a quiet rural area. You can find more information here: http://www.industrialnoisecontrol.com/comparative-noise-examples.htm.

Projector Brightness

'Projector Brightness' is how bright the bulb in the projector is, measured in 'lumens'.

A brighter bulb means that the projector will be seen clearer, and can project to surfaces father away without appearing too dark.

Bulb Power

'Bulb Power' denotes how powerful the bulb in the projector is, measured in watts (W).

A more powerful bulb means that the projector will be seen clearer, and can project to surfaces father away without appearing too dark.

Service Life Of Lamp

'Service Life' indicates how long the lamp in the projector will last before it needs to be replaced, measured in hours.

A longer life lamp means you'll need to replace it far less frequently, saving you money.
