More Site Info For House of Worship Projectors

Projector Reviews has created a video, discussing use of projectors in Houses of Worship of varying sizes and applications.

Here is the link:

 Using Large Venue Projectors in Houses of Worship

Brightness isn’t the only important factor.  Some projectors are simply better at producing good color in rooms with a lot of ambient light – which is usually the case in Houses of Worship.  This video considers the importance of having lots of color lumens, not just white ones, when comparing projectors.  It’s only been a few years since a color lumens standard was created, but it is important (our first discussion – inside a review – relating to this topic goes back to 2003 I believe):

 Color Brightness: An Important New Metric for Projectors

In addition you may find these more generic articles on projectors helpful in your decision making process:

How Do I Choose the Right Screen for My Projector?

Projection Screen Terminology and Advice

DLP vs. LCD vs. LCoS Overview

Although Houses of Worship and large Entertainment Venues sound very different, they have much in common, especially today where many churches put on live performances and want to project so all can see better, so while the focus is different, there is useful info here as well:

Using High Power Projectors in Entertainment Venues

One last thought!  Certainly finding the right projector or projectors, in terms of features,  for your Church is very important, it’s not the whole story.

Unless your house of worship is on a very limited DIY type budget, selecting the right dealer/integrator to provide the recommendations and the equipment, and install it for you is extremely important.  There are many such AV companies with extensive experience working with houses of worship.  Find a good one, with experience and comeptence for the level of sophistication your organization needs.
