LED Projector – The Benefits
Projectors used to be heavy, hot and expensive. With the introduction of Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology, projectors became lighter and cool to the touch. But for a while remained very costly. Since then, prices have dropped considerably. Today these new multimedia projectors are becoming increasingly popular, both in the office and the home. The crisp Light Emitting Diode technology provides vibrant colors and pin-sharp images. Now you can enjoy TV, movies, slide shows and games in cinema-quality brilliance.
Projectors with these light sources have some major advantages over conventional projectors. For one thing, they tend to be brighter than conventional lamps, meaning that you can enjoy presentations in rooms with more ambient light. And because the diode’s stay cool, you won’t be bothered by noisy fans or over-heating lamps.
Perhaps most importantly, these newer projectors will last far longer than the older-style ones. They need very little maintenance, and there is no costly lamp to change. They are good for the environment, too, as they use less power to run, cutting down on your electricity bills.

Not everyone likes a 42inch or 60 inch TV bolted to their wall. It’s fine when you’re watching TV, but when you switch off it looks like a big gray slab of granite someone stuck there in the mistaken belief that it was art.

It fills an entire wall and you have life size characters and action. Best of all, when the movie has finished you can pack the projector away and have your wall back.

LED Projector Tech Glossary
- Aspect ratio
Aspect ratio describes the width of the screen compared to the height of the screen. The most popular aspect ratio for consumer displays is 16:9. This is the standard format for high-definition TV. A ratio of 16:9 means that the projection is 16 units wide for every 9 units in height.
- Contrast ratio
Contrast is just as important for picture quality as brightness. Contrast ratio measures the difference between the brightest white and the darkest black. A LED projector with a contrast ratio of 1,000:1 produces a white image that is 1,000 times brighter than the black image. The higher the contrast ratio, the more detail you’ll see.
This stands for light emitting diode. LEDs deliver a wider and deeper color range than conventional lamps. With sharp images, long bulb life and lower temperatures it result in less if any fan noise.
Projection brightness is measured in lumens. The lumen rating tells you the overall brightness a projector is capable of producing. How bright the movie or presentation appears will depend on the ambient light in the room in which you are viewing it. If you are in a room with the lights on, but no light directly over the projected image, you would probably need a 1,000-lumen projector or more. A top HD LED projector with a rating of 3,000 lumens would be fine for these sorts of conditions.
- Native resolution and support resolution
Native resolution is measured in pixels. It tells you the top pixel resolution that a projector is capable of producing (e.g. 1280 x 768 pixels). However, computer and video signals come in a wide variety of resolution formats. These may be higher or lower than your projector’s native resolution. Support resolution (sometimes called maximum resolution) tells you the highest pixel resolution a projector is able to process. So a projector may process 4K or 1080P resolutions but it will only display them in the maximum native resolution.
- Short Throw Projector
When working in smaller rooms a short throw projector is advantageous. This is as it allows the projection to be cast onto a wall or surface from as little as 1.5 feet away.

Projector Buying Tips
You may be worrying that you won’t know how to set up your LED projector. However, it’s easy to hook up a portable projector to your PC or laptop using an HDMI cable. Or on older systems a VGA cable ( generally included with your projector). If your laptop or PC doesn’t auto-recognize the large or small projector, try the F5 or F7 toggle keys. This should switch between your laptop screen and the projector screen. Some LED projectors to come with DVD players, SD card readers and USB drives. This lets you watch movies and look at photos without the need to connect another device. Many also have wireless connectivity or Bluetooth features so you can connect to them and share data without the need of cables.
The most important features governing the price of LED projectors are the brightness of the light source, measured in lumens, and the contrast ratio and native resolution. These factors will have a direct effect on the overall picture quality, vibrancy of color and the size of the image that can be projected onto a screen or wall. The predicted life expectancy of the LED is also a factor. As an example, our best projector has a light source life of about 50,000 hours. An average light source life is about 20,000+ hours, which is still a very long time!
In 2017 and beyond you can expect to see enhanced picture quality as we bring you portable projectors with greater contrast ratio and native resolution across our entire range. We also expect to see even longer LED light source life ratings as the technology gradually improves.
