Panasonic Projectors

SORT BY:
When traditional TVs or computer screens are too small for displaying presentations, projectors can easily solve the problem. Whether the projector is for the office or the home, Staples carries an assortment of Panasonic projectors to meet most needs.

What Resolution is Needed For Panasonic Projectors?
The first consideration is ensuring that the intended projector meets or exceeds the resolution of the material to be displayed. For displaying full HD content properly, LCD projectors will need a resolution of 1920 x 1080 or higher. These are ideal for displaying HD videos and high-resolution images. They will be labeled as HD, 1080p or WUXGA resolution. While any projector will work for displaying presentations or classroom material, projectors labeled SVGA, XGA or WXGA are the most economical options.

What Input Connectivity is Required for Panasonic Projectors?
The input methods of a projector need to match the connectivity of the intended device. 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 will use either a DVI or VGA cable for connecting to the home theater projector. If more than one device is connected to the projector, make sure the projector has enough ports available.

How Bright Does My Panasonic Projector Need to Be?
Panasonic DLP projectors come in a variety of brightness options 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 image to be displayed will determine how bright the projector needs to be for proper viewing. Bright rooms with lots of ambient light will need a brighter projector (higher lumens) to see the picture properly. Large screen projections will also require a brighter model. For bright rooms, large screens and audiences of more than 100 people, look for a projector with a brightness of 4500 lumens or more. Overhead projectors with a brightness of 3000 lumens work well in dark rooms and for audiences less than 100 people.

Are Contrast and Throw Ratio Important When Buying New Panasonic Projectors?
Another item to consider when selecting new projector screens is contrast ratio, which is a measure of the difference between the brightest and darkest the projector is able to 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. For the highest possible contrast ratios, consider Panasonic laser projectors, which use laser light for optimum brightness. Projector throw ratio should also be considered for smaller rooms. Throw ratio is a measure of how large the display will be compared to the distance from the display surface. To get a large picture in a small room, look for a throw ratio that is 1:1 or less.

Whether designing your dream home theater or making a presentation at the office, understanding these basic options makes it easier to choose the right projector to meet your needs. Staples carries other popular brands including Optoma projectors, Epson projectors, and more.
