Gaming Projectors

Gaming projectors provide a theater-style view of the action when playing console or PC video games. They combine excellent color performance, high-contrast output and 3-D display capabilities to bring games, movies and other content to life on the big screen. Staples carries projectors that fit almost any room, including brands such as BenQ projectors, Acer, Epson Projectors, and FAVI Entertainment.

Gaming Projectors Deliver Dynamic Performance
Gaming projectors feature responsive projection systems that give players lag-free control over the gaming action. Models with native resolutions up to 1080p show the smallest details, and brightness ratings as high as 3,000 lumens handle most lighting conditions. The accurate color reproduction DLP and LED technology offer creates an engaging and beautiful interactive experience. Many gaming projectors can also display 3-D games and movies. Use overhead projectors with 3-D glasses to bring media to life in any room.

Gaming Projectors Are a Versatile Display Option
Gaming projectors feature capabilities that show off interactive media also make these products an excellent choice for business or educational use. Most offer a variety of connection options, so you can use them to show presentations from a laptop or still images from a thumb drive. Select models include Wi-Fi support and display content from remote sources wirelessly. Short-throw designs require very little space to produce a large display in a conference room or classroom, and built-in stereo speakers handle the audio portion of the show.

How Big Are Gaming Projectors?
While not as small as palm-sized pico projectors, most of these products are compact enough to fit in a briefcase or overnight bag. Typical models are about 12 inches wide, 8 inches deep and 4 inches tall. They weigh 5 to 7 pounds.

What Are the Differences Between DLP and LED Projectors?
DLP projectors use a grid of microscopic mirrors and a spinning color wheel to generate a display. LCD projectors use special screens to control color and an LED lamp to illuminate the image. DLPs deliver crisp color output and are very responsive. They can also show material compatible with 3-D glasses. However, DLP lamp life is only about 5,000 hours, and some people experience ghosting or banding in DLP output. LED projectors produce the most saturated colors, use less power and are quieter than DLPs, but they aren't as bright.

What Connections Do Gaming Projectors Have?
Most gaming projectors have one or more HDMI connectors that are compatible with gaming consoles, laptops or media devices such as Blu-ray players. Many also have component or composite connectors you can use with legacy electronics. USB ports that support thumb drives or external hard drives provide device-free display capabilities. Pass-through 3.5-millimeter audio connections let you use built-in sound capabilities or connect headphones or external speakers.

What Are Short-Throw Projectors?
Most gaming projectors have short-throw projector screens. Throw refers to the distance between the projector and the display screen. These lenses require only a short distance to create a large image. Some products create 300-inch displays using as little as 11 feet of space between the projector and the screen.

Gaming projectors combine responsive performance, compact designs and accurate color reproduction to deliver engaging interactive content in a big-screen format. Find a home theater projector at Staples that fits your available space and take on challenging game content in the comfort of your living room.
