Christmas and New Years Eve Party Projector Rentals

Christmas is in three days, which means that the majority of the people reading this already have their homes decked out for the holiday season. However, there’s not much of a point decking your halls unless you are going to be showing aforementioned halls off for all to see. If you don’t have a Christmas party or a New Year’s party planned we’re going to give you a few projector-related ideas to help you plan your own party. Not all of these ideas may be helpful for you, but if any of these are applicable for you, you may be well on your way to making the best Christmas or New Year’s Eve party you’ve had in years.

• Backyard Movie Night

Although highly nontraditional for a Christmas party, backyard movie night projector rentals are great for parties. To get a backyard movie night to be a blast though, you’ll want to set up a few things for and with your guests pre-party. You may not have a ton of chairs at your disposal, which means you will probably want your guests to help by bringing their own lawn chairs or other seats.

Your guests will also be much more on board with an outdoor movie night if they have plenty of snacks available, and popcorn is the go-to movie night snack. So pop a whole lot of popcorn in advance to get your movie night going.

If you live somewhere cold, you still may consider doing an outdoor movie night for your holiday party, just tell your guests to bring blankets and to bundle up before they get there.

• Indoor Movie Night

If you live in a colder area and you were reading the suggestion above, you probably were already thinking of this. A movie night projector rental is just as viable an option for indoor settings as it is for outdoors, except by choosing to watch your movie indoors it doesn’t necessarily have to be night to get the same great image.

Most of the tips suggested for backyard movie nights still apply here besides the blanket and coat thing. Meaning that you should still have a lot of popcorn and soda ready for the audience. Since you aren’t actually going to a movie theater, getting snacks shouldn’t cost you an arm and a leg. If you have a lot of movies which are on DVD, get a DVD projector rental which will allow you and your audience to watch whatever you want on the bigscreen.

• Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree

 

There’s probably going to be a point where you get tired of watching Christmas movies, and when that point comes you’ll be faced with a decision: will you start watching something else, or will you decide to truly rock around your Christmas tree? If you chose option number 2, you can start projecting Dance, Dance Revolution or any other dancing game alternative.

 

• Extreme Christmas Home Decoration

 

If you want your house to be the most festive looking house on the block for your party night, you can do some pretty impressive light displays through projectors. Although this is probably one of the least interactive things you can do with a projector rental, it can easily result in making your house look like the coolest thing on the block.

Hopefully some of these suggestions were helpful for you. These are just a few ways you can use a projector rental for your Christmas or New Year’s parties. Have a holly, jolly Christmas!

Tis the Season for Holiday Projector Rentals

 

It is the second time this year I have had the opportunity use the phrase, ” ‘Tis the Season”, and I would be Scrooge not to take it. December is finally upon us, which means it is time for hot chocolate, excessive blanket usage, and hoping for a white Christmas with a fire going in the fireplace depending on where you live. Christmas is also when you tell tales of the glories of Christmases long, long ago.

 
The truth is that you don’t neecessarily have to focus on telling Christmas stories, but the Christmas season is a great time for storytelling in general. Proof of this fact can be seen in the countless Christmas movies which litter television during the holiday season. For everyone living in regions which stay warm in December, this won’t apply but for anyone in our region (Southwest Ohio), most of us know that it’s not always pleasant to be out and about during the winter, which means we stay indoors and entertain ourselves with either stories from books, television, or games.

Holiday Projector Rentals
This Christmas you can mix things up, if you’re hosting a Christmas party, get a projector rental to display movies or games for your attendees. You can dedicate an entire wall to playing you and your guests’ favorite Christmas movies you have on DVD with a DVD projector rental. Everything is better on the big screen, and there aren’t many bigger screens than projector screens. Of course, if you don’t have a projector screen, you can also get a projector screen rental to get the most out of your projector.

 
Projectors can be rented for more than just throwing a Christmas party though. You can rent a projector for a much more work-related reason, such as putting on a Christmas play for your organization, you could get a large venue projector rental to provide a backdrop to make your play more captivating, or you could use your projector to project something instrumental to the play’s script itself.

 
Whether you need a Christmas projector rental for a Christmas party, Christmas play, or any other holiday or even non-festive reason, you can get a projector rental quote from us today. Happy holidays!

Portable Projector Rentals

 

Many people think of projectors as big, clunky devices. However; modern technology has made projectors capable of being ultra-light devices which can even fit inside of your pocket!Portable ProjectorDue to their size, portable projectors can be very useful in a variety of situations. If you are a travelling business person, you can make your job easier by getting a portable projector rental. Renting a portable projector will enable you to hit multiple presentation destinations in a shorter period of time because you won’t have to deal with the hassle of packing up a heavy projector. However; if you are presenting inside of a large auditorium, you may want to consider getting a large venue projector rental instead.

Portable projectors are not only amazing for business purposes, they are also extremely practical for personal use. It is no secret that projectors are great to have on hand for parties. During this time of the year, projectors are often rented to display horror films at Halloween parties.

Portable projector rentals for family reunions are also a common example of renting a projector for personal use. Having a portable projector at your family reunion is a great way to display family history, and gives family members something to gather around and talk about. You can even use your projector as a way for family members to catch up on everyone’s important life events.

Whether you need a projector for business or personal reasons, get a portable projector rental if you want a combination of great display, and the best mobility. For more information, call us at 888-736-8301.

Training Course Projector Rentals

Modern educational programs are often empowered by technology. Many programs, such as PowerPoint, Word, and Excel, are routinely used in training and educational courses. However; if you are running a training course, you may not have a projector at your disposal to adequately display essential information.

Getting a training course projector rental will increase your training program’s value, while also saving you time. Instead of writing down information on a whiteboard and erasing and writing information as the program progresses, you can switch between nicely formatted presentation slides.

Having a projector also allows you to display more accurate graph related information. Handwriting and graphing are ancient nemeses, but being able to display a computer generated graph saves you the hassle of becoming a part of that ancient feud, and allows you to concentrate on presenting information instead of staring at your own drawing skills.

Businessman presenting in front of projection screen

One thing projectors can do that the mastering of penmanship will not allow you to do is displaying videos. There is a massive amount of instructional videos on the internet, and having just one of these in your presentation can greatly increase the presentations value. If you were learning to change a tire, it would be more helpful if you saw it being done so that you can repeat the process, instead of just reading about it. Displaying a video through your projector is a great way to get your audience’s attention, and add a new layer of depth to the material being taught.

If you are suddenly thrust into a scenario where you are giving a training presentation and you have a projector, but do not have a projector screen appropriate for your venue, you’ll be pleased to know we offer projector screen rentals. Projector screens are not compact or easily transportable, but if you rent a projector screen from RentOurProjectors.com, our tech agents can deliver it to your venue so you don’t have to worry about how you are getting your projector screen. 

One final word of advice, when renting a projector screen, try to find out the height of your venue’s ceiling, the distance from the screen to the audience, and the projector’s native resolution. Knowing these three things will make choosing the size of your projector screen a walk in the park.

SpookyProjections

With the power of projectors, you can create a ghastly and dazzling display for the eyes of your fellow mortals. For residential use, projectors can be used to make your house the hottest haunt on the block. If you are a fan of Halloween parties, you can rent a projector to host the ultimate Halloween-themed movie party.

If you are on the business end of the spooktrum, there is almost no end to practical usage for projectors for haunted houses. If you run a haunted house/trail, you can use projectors to keep your clientele happy and entertained as they wait in line, or use projector rentals to scare your attendees as they wait, and give them a foreboding taste of what to expect in your house of horrors.

If you own a haunted house or just a regular property, if you want to be this season’s hot commodity, you should consider getting a quote from us at RentOurProjectors.com, or call us at 888-736-8301.

4 Creative Ways to Use Projectors

solstice-our-mac-pro-rentals-controlled-the-projectors-moving-image-onfloor

Projectors can be one of the most useful tools in hosting any event. Sure, projectors can be used for normal functions like teaching classrooms or watching movies, but what other exciting things can you do with projectors? I don’t know, maybe make the coolest panorama projection ever to impress your fellow businessmen-in-arms?

1.) Panorama Wall Projection

 

The above video is from an open house event called “The Big Color Bang”. This amazing display was made possible through the use of eight ceiling-mounted LCD projectors rented through RentOurProjectors.com.

2.) Interactive Floor Displays

Projectors can be used for truly amazing things. For example, you can use projectors alongside a computer and a camera to display advanced, interactive floor “carpets” which your guests can interact with. The video below is from an art installation where guests would walk through the projection and the display would react to their presence.

 

3.) Laser & Music Light Shows

Another clever use of projectors would be to give life to your event by orchestrating a laser light show. Using software and a high-lumen projector, you can put on a very impressive laser light show to accompany whatever music you like.    

 

4.) Slideshows

One final reason to get a projector rental for your next event would be to display a slideshow. This is easily the least creative idea I have listed so far, but slideshows can be used in many scenarios. These scenarios include hosting graduation parties, family reunions, or business conventions. Whatever your event may be, if used with creativity, projectors can add a little, or a lot of, extra wow factor.

Beyond the flexibility, the Home Cinema 1440 is also one of the brightest home projectors available on the market–this is a flat-panel killer. Why settle for a 65-inch or 70-inch TV when you can have something four times bigger with bright, lifelike, sharp details, a portable design, and simple setup for a truly captivating experience even in large, well-lit environments.”

Best Projectors Currently Available

ThinkstockPhotos-187093586When it comes to projectors, finding the right one can be a taxing situation. There are a lot of factors to consider, like lumen output, portability, projection distance, image projection size, connectivity, etc… Thankfully you have people like us who make nifty lists like this one that informs you about the current projectors sitting at the top of the market. You’re welcome.

ViewSonic PLED-W800

This is one of the least expensive ViewSonic projectors that still performs like a champion. The smaller price tag is probably mostly due t how small it is, but this means that it is super portable. it weighs just short of 2 pounds, and it is 13.1 x 10.4 x 4.3 inches. You can take it with you to all of your business meetings or events with little to no hassle. The lamp can reach up to 800 lumens. As long as you can control the lighting a little bit, you can use this projector in any room you want for any reason. It has an SD slot, an HDMI input, a USB slot, and a VGA output for laptops. You can connect just about anything to it that you could think of.

This is an great choice for presenting documents from Word, Excel, and Powerpoint presentations directly from a USB flash drive. It can also play video of course, but that isn’t a strong point. Either way, for the money, it’s really hard to beat. Especially with the portability.

Epson EB-X11

ThinkstockPhotos-487439985This is another super portable projector that is great at doing just about everything. It’s also a little cheaper than the ViewSonic PLED-W800, and if you shop around a little bit you can get it for a steal. It has a ton of amazing features, which is why it made it on the list. It measures 11.6 x 11.9 x3.0 inches and weighs about 5 pounds. So like the Viewsonic model, you can easily take the EB-X11 from place to place and take care of business anywhere you need to. One cool feature is the lens cap that automatically shuts off the lamp and the speakers when it is put on. The lamp has a really high brightness for this type of projector, with a rating of 2600 lumens. It does have USB slot, but for some reason you can only view photos with it and not videos. Other than that, this is a really great projector and the brightness and size make up for it’s little flaws. And even the flaws are pretty easy to get around.

Sony VPL-FHZ55

This model isn’t very portable at all, but that isn’t what it was made for. It weighs about 26 and a half pounds, so you probably wouldn’t want to move it anyway. It measures 15.3 x 19.8 x 5.8 inches. This model is also the first 3LCD projector, but the projection chip it uses was made popular by other companies. It does not use a lamp at all but instead uses a blue laser light source. This is very convenient, but we all know you pay a price for convenience. This bad boy is going to cost you an arm and a leg. It goes for about $11 grand if you’re planning on buying as opposed to renting. It has a brightness of 4,000 lumens and can last for up to 20,000 hours. This means you don’t have to change lamps as often. It also has a full set of BNC/component inputs, an RGB D-sub 15-pin slot, DV-D, monitor output and an HDMI input. On the other side of the projector it also has S-video, composite video, lots of analog audio ins and outs, an RS-232C control jack, the DC inlet, and wired LAN. With all of those features you would think that it would have built in Wi-Fi, but sadly it does not. This is a small price to pay for all of the other crazy features though.

Projector

Lenovo Is Giving Us A Tablet With A Built-In Pico Projector!

Sponsored By RentOurProjectors.com–A Brand By Rentacomputer.com

 

Over the course of the past few years, we’ve seen some pretty amazing breakthroughs with projectors and how we can actually use them. There have been many new makes and models to come out, each boasting different specs and functions. tablet textEven with all of the new projectors that come out though, they can still be looked at as an “unnecessary” commodity in the eyes of some. There’s not a huge sense of practicality for those that would only use it for business or the occasional movie night. To them it might be just an extra expense. Because of that however, we’ve been graced by projectors being incorporated into other tech devices, such as our smartphones.

One that is a bit new to the table though, is a projector in a tablet.

Lenovo’s Projector Tab Is Pretty Sweet

lenovo yoga projector

When you think about how much we use our tablets, both for business and for pleasure, there are certain ideas that would just… make sense. Tablets these days are used mainly for consuming content. Now mind you there are still some out there who use it for business purposes. Projectors have recently started to become more than just devices that throw images upon a wall or screen. They’re now holding hard drives and are capable of using apps, much like your tablet. The new Lenovo Yoga 2 tablet just cuts the middleman out all together and gives us a tablet with a built-in pico projector. It comes with 2 GB of RAM and 32GB of storage space to hold all sorts of apps, photos, movies, and games. It’s also working with a 4th gen Intel Atom processor with the Android KitKat 4.4 OS. The tablet is capable of throwing a 50 inch image for you and everyone else to enjoy.

How Will You Use It?

Needless to say, many of us who own tablets normally just surf the web, go on social media, and watch YouTube videos. Even still, if that is the case, there is nothing wrong with throwing up a 50 inch display of your favorite cat videos for you and your friends to cry laughing at. This isn’t to say that I’m pigeon-holing this product. There is still a high use business aspect of this device as well. It can be cumbersome to actually connect a tablet to a projector, so when you’re going to give your presentation at that board meeting, it might not go as well as you may have wanted. Now with the Lenovo Yoga 2, you don’t have to worry about that. Every corporate office deals with giving and receiving presentations. This tablet just makes your presentation giving a lot easier.

Should We Expect This To Become The Norm?

While this is still a really cool and practical (for once) concept, there is still a lot more to projectors than most people realize. To have a really good image, you not only need a good projector, but also a good screen to go along with it. With the new Lenovo tab, you’re not really going to be too worried about having a good screen however, because your tablet has a pico projector inside of it, and it should be enough to get the job done. Until companies are able to truly make something like a 4K short throw projector built-into an extremely fast and extremely light weight tablet, laptop, or wearable, I feel that it’s safe to say that this could be a one time thing. That being said, I’ve been wrong before.

Whether you would be using this for business or pleasure, there is no doubt that having a pico projector built into the new Lenovo Yoga 2 Tablet isn’t an awesome asset. Now if only it was an ultra short throw pico projector…
