Projectors are an excellent way to display presentations, images and videos to a larger number of people on larger screens than traditional TVs or computer displays would allow. While there are several manufacturer options, Staples carries a large assortment of BenQ projectors to suit most needs.
Usage What will be shown and where it will be displayed is the first and most important factor to consider when selecting a BenQ projector. Will the projector be used in a home theater or a business conference room? Will the room be dark or will there be a lot of ambient light during projection? Will it be for a small group or a large audience? Once the intended usage is determined the following other factors will help narrow down the selection further.
Resolution Projectors for home theater projectors and other high-definition display settings need to meet or exceed the resolution of the content to be shown. HD projectors have a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels for 720p resolution and 1920 x 1080 pixels for 1080p. For simply displaying presentations or classroom material, projectors marked SVGA, XGA, and WXGA will suffice.
Input Connectivity Buyers need to ensure the projector they choose is compatible with the devices they plan to connect it to. Most home theater devices and gaming consoles will use an HDMI or component video type cable for displaying in HD, with HDMI being the most common. Most computers use either a DVI or VGA cable for connecting to the projector. If you need to connect multiple devices to a projector simultaneously, make sure the projector has an adequate number of ports.
Brightness BenQ projectors come in a variety of brightnesses to meet various projection needs. Projector brightness is measured in lumens, with a higher number indicating a brighter picture. The amount of ambient light in the room and the size of the projected images determine how bright the device needs to be for effective viewing. Rooms with more ambient light from windows and other light sources need a brighter projector (higher lumens) to see the picture properly. For the best results, very large screen projections also require a model with a higher lumens measurement. Low light and smaller screens should have a projector brightness of at least 1500 lumens. Rooms with more ambient light and audiences of less than 100 people would do well with a projector brightness of 3000 lumens or more and rooms with bright lights and audiences larger than 100 people will need a projector with 4500 lumens or more.
Contrast Ratio Another factor to consider when selecting a BenQ projector is contrast ratio, which is a measure of the difference between the brightest and darkest the projector can display. As with resolution, a higher contrast ratio is ideal for home theater, gaming, and other HD display situations. Look for contrast ratios of 10,000:1 or better. MoreLess
