Wide Angle Short Throw Projector Hire

Hitachi cpcw300wnMost desktop projectors have a standard built-in lens that requires the projector to be positioned some way from the projector screen or surface.  Typically the distance is 1.5 to 2 times the width of the screen. Wide angle projectors have a special lens that allows you to minimise the distance between the projector and the projection screen. These short throw projectors will typically only require a throw distance of half the width of the screen.  This is an advantage when space is limited but also makes it easier to keep out of the way of the projected image so you don’t cast shadows.

Wide Screen Projector Hire

Hire NEC ProjectorYou may have noticed that for the last few years the format of computer screens has been changing from the 4:3 format to widescreen aspect ratios of 16:10.  It is now far more common to have a widescreen format so it is likely that you will want a projector to match that.  If you have created you PowerPoint or Keynote slides with a modern widescreen template then these widescreen projectors will be ideal.    It is still possible to display a 16:9 image on a 4:3 projector but you will either end up black bars top and bottom of the screen or squishing the image sideways to make it fit.

DLP Projector Hire

DLP Multimedia ProjectoDLP projector use a different type of image processor to the LCD models.  The DLP (Digital Light Processor) used thousands of minute mirrors to create the pixels. This is combine with a colour wheel to create the colour images.  The result is better contrast ration and more realistic colour rendition when compared to LCD models.  DLP projectors are popular when video and films are being shown as the subtleties of the graduated shades and colour are produced more accurately.
