If you have a room with a lot of light coming through which isn’t controllable then operating a projector in that room is a bit of a task. Ordinary projectors with basic specs will most probably fail to deliver in this environment because in essence projectors are developed to perform in low light or no light conditions.
So it all comes to you needing to get your work done on a projector with no chance of switching over to another space with low or no light.
You probably are looking for solution when it comes to projectors not being able to work in bright light conditions. We have prepared this publication just for this reason so that you can get an answer to this problem. We have also listed some of the best projectors for bright rooms below which you can check out as well. But before you can check those projectors out you should know few things that will help you choosing a better projector for yourself.
Things to Consider When Choosing Bright Projector
The first thing you should consider when selecting a bright projector is really not about the projector itself but the projection screen. There have been a lot of developments when it comes to projection screens and the old projection screens which were inefficient and did not perform well at all have been extinct now. There are new ambient light rejection screens in the market which can work wonders for you if you pair them up with the projectors we have listed below even though they can work extraordinarily well without the screens but an upgrade won’t hurt.
The second thing to look for in a bright projector is the type of projector. There are long, short and ultra-short throw projectors available in the market. The most suitable option for bright rooms are short and ultra-short projectors but the latter one is a bit expensive and are not in everyone’s budget. Short throw projectors are well suited for the majority. The misconception about the short throw projectors is that they have low brightness which is measured in Lumens. The thing about brightness and the projection distance is that they are inversely proportional, which means for a short throw projector you don’t need a higher brightness on the projector.
Now if you are looking for something in a long throw projector then you will have to consider the Lumens of the projector and you would want that figure to be high. There are two types of brightness you will have to look for in a long throw projector.
- White Brightness
- Color Brightness
White brightness is the amount of white light emitted by the projector. If you are looking for a business projector you will have to look for a projector which will have higher count of both white and color brightness.
The color brightness determines the amount of color light is emitted by the projector, the color light is based on Red, Green and Blue colors the higher the color brightness number the more vibrant and detailed the colors will be. If you are looking for a home theatre projector, color brightness is the thing that you should focus on.
Now let’s get into the best bright light projectors we have for you.
