Projectors are types of devices that combine technologies such as optics systems and displays in order to project images onto screens and walls. There are many different products in this area that consumers can choose from, all of which have subtle differences in performance and resolution. Different features are also extremely important when deciding on what kind of a projector would be good for you.
Rear Projection Televisions (RPTVs) are one of the main brands that are hot commodities in today’s society. These RPTVs draw many consumers due to their big-screen nature; they are for all intents and purposes big-screen TVs themselves. This is a definite plus to all people who wish to purchase a larger screen as they are reasonably priced and are able to fit into medium sized rooms.
For any consumer who wants a cinema type experience from their home theaters, a front projector is definitely the way to go. These projectors are not only much larger but they are also priced at nearly the same price as a RPTV. This shows just how great a value a front projector really is. The main problem with these projectors is that the screens will hardly fit in any rooms that are not made specifically to house a home theater.
Digital projectors are types of projectors that work by converting data into an image that is easily seen on a screen. This data is usually provided by different types of computerized technology. These devices can vary in resolution though a good device usually runs around the SVGA standard of 800×600 pixels. More expensive models can run up to 1024×768 pixels and are normally only used by professionals.
Out of all the digital projection companies in the world there are four that enjoy the most success. These are CRT, LCD, Texas Instruments’ DLP, and LCOS. LCD has had the most recent success due to its front projection systems. It has developed a new technology that improves the functionality of its products vastly. This has finally put it on level footing with the likes of DLP in terms of usability and beauty.
What most consumers do not realize is that projection technology is at the point where there is virtually no difference between watching something through a projector and watching it through a television. Also projectors do not cost nearly as much as they use to and they are easily affordable for anyone who is looking to buy a big-screen TV.
