We got our brand spanking new projector set up. It’s got full HD resolution (1920×1080), and the lumens value (telling us how strong the light is) is 2000 ANSI. We absolutely adore it, but there’s a ‘but’.
Bit of free advice for those planning on starting up their own outdoor screenings here: if you’re on a tight budget, it’s better to sacrifice resolution for lumens – having for example 4500 ANSI lumens from your 1024×768 projector means you can start a little earlier in the evening, and the difference in resolution is only noticeable to the picky few.
On to building a shading stage for the screen now!
