Sony’s New Projector Turns Walls Into 4K Displays

Thursday, February 27th, 2014

One of the newest and most impressive additions to Sony’s line of projectors in the new 4K Ultra Short Throw Projector, which is able to turn any wall in your office or home into an incredible 4K display. This projector is part of Sony’s new Life Space UX line. One of the most convenient features it has, which also separates it from the rest of the projectors on the market, is that it is made to be placed directly next to the wall that it will be projecting onto. That way, it won’t take up any awkward space in the middle of the room and will come off as more of a decoration piece, or maybe an air filter… or something.

The projector uses a laser light source to project a screen size of up to 147 inches. The actual unit will measure 43.3″ x 10.4″ x 21.1″. It comes equipped with 4 HDMI ports so that you can connect just about anything you could even think of. It’s a little bit on the big side, but it has a lot of nice features, and with it being such a short throw projector, it doesn’t really matter that much what it looks like. It also eliminates the need for any other type of display in the room, resulting in a more modern, organized and professional look overall.

The new, super futuristic, super short throw projector is going to be released this summer. The cost of owning one is going to be through the roof, a whopping $40,000.

Trying To Decide Between An LCD, DLP, or LCoS Projector Display?

Thursday, February 20th, 2014

family movie nightDo you ever feel the need to upgrade your business or entertainment tech? Mainly your displays? Sure, having a huge top of the line TV is nice and all, but how good is all that resolution when it is fixed to a certain size? These days the implementation of 4K resolution rates seem to be taking over the display world. That is all well and good, but there are a few factors that determine how well that super high resolution rate is going to look. Take for example how large the display is. Viewing 4K on small screens isn’t going to make that much of a difference, but a large screen will really show the detail since there is more room for the pixels to shine through. But what about the displays? The type of display is also going to play a part in how your picture will turn out.

DLP

DLP, or Digital Light Processing, is that type of display used by a majority of home and business projectors. These particular projectors use something called a “DMD”. This “DMD”, or Digital Micro-mirror Device, is the chip that is used inside every DLP projector. These projectors can range in price depending on the number of DMD’s in them. A single DMD will provide a primary color sub-image at a rapid pace, displaying your picture. A DLP projector using three DMD’s will have a DMD chip generate a sub-image in each respective primary color obviously resulting in a better, more full color picture, but also raising the price. Most of the portable projectors use the DLP display and can sit at an easy $400, while the more high end models can get up to $100,000 for the best of the best.

LCD

The ever-popular LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) has come a long way since it has been first introduced. When they were first introduced, they had quite a few problems with their contrast ratios and black levels on screen.  The 3 LCD micro-chip displays work in the same way the the DMD chips work, with each one designated for a particular primary color. The fact that these projectors typically have very good placement flexibility and offer many lens shift adjustments with different zoom lenses make them worthy competitors against the DLP projector. They are able to provide the performance of a DLP with added adjustments, making it a great choice for businesses and home theaters alike. Their prices can range from $600 to $8,000 depending on the model.

LCoS

The Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) is very close to the LCD display, but is set up a bit differently. By using a reflective layer behind the liquid crystal layer, the light projected is reflected instead of transmitted. This coupled with the fact that the electronics controlling all of the pixels are placed behind the pixels, instead of between them like in 3LCD projectors, means that you will see a higher “fill factor” image. Since the pixels are next to each other instead of separated by the electronics, it provides a higher clarity image even at close distances. These projectors can run you anywhere from $3,000 to $45,000 depending on the make and model you choose.

Knowing the difference in these displays and what you need can greatly help in the decision making process of what to upgrade to. If you don’t need anything too fancy, then don’t get it. However, if your business or home theater is in need of a nice upgrade, it never hurts to rent one to figure out what would be the best image suited for your needs.

How To Choose The Correct Projector For Your Business Meetings

Tuesday, February 4th, 2014

 Having a projector for your business makes life a lot easier for everyone when you are conducting meetings or having a video conference. The biggest problem most people have is being able to choose the correct projector to fit their personal business needs. This can take a lot of time and research. While you are looking for the projector that fits your business perfectly, consider the following.

Brightness

One of the most important things to look at is brightness. There are different projectors with different brightness levels for use with lights off, or light on. Depending on how bright the room is, selecting the correct brightness level is going to insure that you get the highest quality picture. If you are going to be using the projector in a well lit room, then you will require a projector with a high lumen count. anything between 2000 and 300 should get the job done. There are also many projectors that you can control the brightness level on, so you may also want to consider one of those models so you can be prepared for any situation.

Resolution

No matter what you end up using the projector for, you always want the best resolution possible. If you are in need of bright colors and a clear picture, then you will probably want to shoot for something at least in the 720p range. 1080p and 4K models are available as well, depending on your budget. 4K is the latest high-definition technology, and will give you an amazing picture all the time, no matter what with an incredible 4096 x 2160 resolution.

Contrast Ratio

This is also another factor that you will have to consider when thinking about picture clarity. Contrast ratio is referring to how deep the black colors are, and how bright the white’s are. For a more crisp and defined picture, you will want to make sure that the projector you choose has a high contrast ratio.

Projector Lamp

If you are looking for a quality projector for your business, you are going to want to invest your money into something that is going to last a long time. Generally, the projectors on today’s market that will last the longest are using LED projector lamps. Most of these are rated for tens of thousands of hours, while other projectors with normal lamps are rated for around 2,000 hours only. Getting a projector with an LED lamp is obviously the better long term option here.

Throw

When talking about “throw”, this is talking about how far away from the screen the projector has to be in order to project a nice, clean image. Depending on the room that you’ll be using your projector in, there are plenty of options. Just make sure to take this into consideration. If you’re not sure, then don’t be afraid to ask.

There are many options for projectors out there, and choosing one isn’t going to be easy. But if you check in to everything I just told you, your life could be a little bit easier.
