Frames Per Second (FPS) measures the number of images (or frames) a projector can display in one second. It is an essential aspect of a projector's performance, as it affects the smoothness and fluidity of the projected image.
Most modern projectors have a standard frame rate of 60 FPS. 60 FPS means that the projector can display 60 images or frames per second, which is sufficient for most types of content and provides a smooth, fluid picture.
However, some projectors can display higher frame rates, such as 120 FPS or even higher. These higher frame rate projectors are designed for specific types of content, such as fast-paced action movies, sports, or video games, where a higher frame rate can provide a more immersive and responsive experience.
Frames per second (FPS) and Hertz (Hz) are related but slightly different terms regarding video projectors.
On the other hand, Hertz (Hz) measures the projector's refresh rate. It is the number of times per second that the projector's image is refreshed on the screen. It's related to the projector's capability to refresh the image on the screen.
In general, Hertz (Hz) and frames per second (FPS) are often used together to describe the performance of a projector. For example, a projector with a high refresh rate of 120Hz could display 120 images per second, which is considered a high frame rate.
