This time we will tell you how you can install an HD projector at home to watch movies with your friends and family or throw a tournament in your own video game room. The final prize would be a large bag of popcorn, some cool drinks and the winner gets to choose the music or movie for the night.

First, let’s say a couple of words about HD projectors. There are probably many among you who are not entirely familiar with what HD projectors are and what are their main features and capabilities.

HD and Full HD Projectors

This LumiHD Mini Projector by MyMobileGear is a device for displaying a video signal at a higher resolution than a standard television. HD means high definition, which can have a variety of denominations and types. Projectors can be used in different ways, although the technology of previous projectors was more appropriate for slideshows and presentations, technology has evolved a lot and today’s projectors are used for video games, movies, and television as well. As experts from myMobile Gear say: these pocket projectors represent a complete home entertainment system that can be connected to all of the user’s devices and fits easily in a bag.

High definition resolution

High definition resolution is defined simply because it is of a higher quality than the standard definition. The standard definition of images for viewing television is with a resolution of 640×480 pixels. High definition comes in some standard forms. The first high definition resolution is known as 720p with 1,280×720 pixels. This high definition resolution is followed by the following high definition resolution formats:

  • 1080p (1,920×1,080 pixels) known as Full HD; found in TVs and monitors;
  • WUXGA (1,920×1,200 pixels) known also by the name Widescreen Ultra Extended Graphics Array, and found in monitors and projectors;
  • 2K (2,048x[unspecified]), present in projectors;
  • UHD (3,840×2,160 pixels), known also by the names 4K, Ultra-High Definition, Ultra HD, found in TVs;
  • The highest degree of commonly available high definition projection is “Cinema” 4K, which has a resolution of4,096x[unspecified],which is found in projectors only.

HD varieties

The HD projection has 2 basic varieties: progressive and interlaced. The interlaced sweep is when the image on the screen is renewed at half time instead. The pixel lines change with each cycle. While the overall effect is very smooth, since the screen is updated at a faster rate than the human eye can see, there is a noticeable clarity. The progressive variety only updates each pixel at a time, with each power cycle. The “P” at the end of 720p or 1080p indicates that the image is scanned in a progressive form and is therefore clearer.

Light

An important component of HD is the source of light and power. Light is what pushes the image through the lens and produces the bright screen. The amount of brightness that a projector produces is described in lumens. The more lumens you have, the greater the brightness will be and hence the quality of the projected image.

Projection surface

What separates a high definition projector from a standard television is that a projector is only useful when the image is displayed on a surface. This surface can be a specialized screen or a white wall.

Format

A portable projectorwith HD resolution simply cannot produce high definition images by itself and is dependent on a device and a medium that can provide a high definition signal. The HD projector is the tool used to present an HD signal. High definition video can come from high definition cable broadcasts, video game systems, smartphones, tablets, computers, laptops, or high definition video formats such as Blu-Ray and HD-DVD.

Installation of projectors

HD projectors require a dark room and a little empty space on the wall for proper installation. In addition to these basic requirements, the installation process is very simple. The most important aspect of the installation is the placement of the screen followed by the placement of the projector. Some users prefer roofing facilities to save floor space. In cases of obstructions of the ceiling like lamps or ventilation grilles their placement is almost impossible so in most cases, they are placed on a table, a special stand or a shelf.

Instructions

Placement Screen: The ideal location for the screen is a large, flat wall on the side of the room that receives less foot traffic. Ceilings should account for vents, lamps or other ceiling elements. Find the center line of the screen to ensure proper optical alignment. Cut a tape or string sufficient to measure the minimum distance recommended by the projector manufacturer.

Connect the small projector to a power source and place it in the proper place to later connect it to a DVD or Blu-Ray player, video game console, computer, laptop, or other media (make sure any of the playback media is HD to achieve definition and quality of Image) and turn on the projector.

  • Adjust the zoom and focus of the projector
  • Adjust distance as needed
  • Turn off and unplug the projector

If you place the projector on the ceiling, it is recommended that you calculate the height often specified in the projector’s user manual. In thecase of a mini projector it is not necessary to install supports in the ceiling, usually the lens of the mini LED projector is in line with the optical center of the screen. It is important to note that not all lenses are in the center of thepicoprojector.

Connect the cables to the projector and turn it on again. Verify that the image is square, relative to the screen.

Full HD vs 4K / UHD in a projector: what is worth buying at the moment?

This is undoubtedly one of the dilemmas facing many of the home theater fans that are considering the possibility of renovating their home pocket projector. With the people’s needs today for the ultimate entertainment experience, having an excellent mobile projector in your home is a necessity, according to myMobile Gear. On the one hand, Full HD technology has reached its full maturity, which has caused us to have access to a huge amount of content in this format, and, in addition, the market offers us a variety of projectors with this resolution with a few benefits of first division and a great price (even for less than 900 dollars there are fantastic options).

The problem is that UHD content will “take off” sooner or later, either through streaming services, or through the physical format called to replace the Blu-ray Disc as we know it now. And when this happens Full HD projectors will not allow us to enjoy the increase of resolution that represents UHD, something that in our opinion can make the difference whenever we project on screens of 80 inches or more. What can we do?

Three different scenarios

The sensible thing if we want to give a fine answer to this question is to pose three possible scenarios for buying a projector. The simplest to solve, although it is the less frequent, is the one starred by a fan with a loose budget, and that, therefore, can afford to spend a significant amount of money on his next projector. In this case, I would make it clear: I would do with a native 4K projector. The brand that has the most interesting portfolio today is Sony, which has three projectors ranging from 7,998dollars on Amazon.com for theVPL-VW365ES, and 27,998 dollars for the top of the range, the VPL-VW1100ES.

If your budget is much more limited, which is usual, the decision is more delicate. The native 4K projectors are discarded because they cost a real fortune, for the moment, so we open two more scenarios: either we do with a Full HD projector with a good price/quality ratio, and leave open the possibility of renewing it when the 4K / UHD devices fall in price, or we consider an alternative option, which for us is the most interesting because it allows us to give a greater value to our investment.

This last strategy consists in betting on a projector with Full HD panels, but which is able to manipulate the images to offer them in pseudo-UHD through the technology of displacement of the pixels. This is the solution offered by brands like JVC and Epson with its excellent projectorPowerLite Pro Cinema LS10000. A projector produced by brands such as these is still a “compromise” solution between Full HD and 4K / UHD, but will offer a fantastic service today with Full HD content, and will be prepared to accept UHD input signals when these contents become popular.

One of the most interesting projectors with this technology is the JVC DLA-X500 projector because it costs 4,000 dollars, and although it is not cheap at all, it is far from the 8,000 dollars we are asked for by other projectors.

If you are interested in purchasing excellent portable HD projectors with great quality and impressive performance, you should really check out the company myMobile Gear.
