Projectors Hire

Projectors Hire

We stock a variety of projectors for wide range of purposes. Whether you organize a small sales meeting, large conference, would like to have a home movie night or watch a football game on a big screen, we have the right equipment for you. From universal compact devices to to high resolution bright light projectors.

Projector works similarly to a TV so other equipment like DVD player or laptop can be connected. Please note the projector comes with no speakers, so if you require a sound - please let us know before the event. When hiring screen and projector you do not have to worry about anything. Our engineer will set everything up for you. He can also stay over for the time of the event (when requested) and look after the technical side. It is worth to mention that projectors need a reasonably dark room for better quality of the projection.

When hiring a projector it is important not to forget about a projection screen. The size of the screen depends on the size of audience and venue. For home use you can simply use a white matt wall, but note it does not project well on rough surfaces since even tiny bumps create shadows when the beam hits sideways.

There is one more projector that you may need. Gobo projector will allow you to display your logo or other print image/ pattern. It is very effective projector when used on business events and impressive during weddings or fashion shows.

Projectors types (throw distance):

Considering the throw distance there are three types of projectors:

- normal-throw projectors - standard projector placed in front of the screen - projection within few metres - it requires more space, but it is perfect for business presentations, exhibitions or home use .

- short-throw projectors - projection from short distance to the screen (approx. 1m for the XGA image) - good solution for rear projections, when the projector is placed behind the screen.

- ultra-short-throw projectors - projection within around 0.5m from the screen- to be used for rear and front projections- great where the space is limited (small office, exhibits, galleries).

Projectors types (direction of projected image):

Based on direction of the projected picture there are two types of projectors and screens:

- front projection - projector is placed in front of the screen (on the audience side). It requires up to few metres of space (depending on the throwing distance method) in front of the screen.

- rear projection - projector is placed behind the screen, so extra space behind the screen is required (depending on the throwing distance). This avoids shadows caused by a presenter and he or she will also not experience the project light in his/her eyes. As the projector is hidden the view is clear and not disturbed by any objects.
