How To Choose A Suitable Outdoor Projector?

By XGIMI Tech - 2022-01

Choosing an outdoor projector is way easier than you think. Outdoor projectors are easy to use and have smart features for their price. When choosing the best outdoor projector, you need to pay attention to the projector's main characteristics such as brightness, power, weight, and size. Almost all projectors connect with smartphones and other devices using the MHL protocol. They have USB ports for easy connection to external equipment.

Portable projectors will be an ideal solution for those who love outdoor activities. Using this device, you can watch your favorite movie and enjoy quality music outdoors. It’s also an excellent option for users who frequently give presentations at work or school. With a high-quality picture, you won't miss any important details onscreen. Portable models are handy for those who value free space and want to have the best outdoor projector. The projector's compact design allows you to simply transport it to any place.

Differences Between An Outdoor And Home Projector?

Some of the best home projectors are provided with card readers that allow you to display photos and presentations from memory cards. These projectors act as integrated home theater systems. These models have bulky dimensions and weigh up to 2-5 kg. Such devices will require more space and will not be able to be placed in every room. However, the best home projector generally has better sound and higher light contrast due to increased brightness. For example, XGIMI HORIZON Pro has a brightness of 2200 ANSI lumens and 4k resolution.

Alternatively, there are outdoor projectors. These are high-quality, convenient, and flexible all-in-one solutions. Their brightness may not be as great as traditional home models, but they compensate for this lack with mobility and simplicity of use. The best outdoor projectors have built-in batteries and weigh up to 1-2 kg. You can take these projectors with you on a road trip, camping, or business meeting without them taking up much space. Some outdoor projectors may not have good built-in speakers, so external speakers may be needed. However, XGIMI outdoor projectors are equipped with Harman Kardon speakers that provide great sound quality and thus external speakers are not needed.

What Should Be Considered When Choosing An Outdoor Projector?

Before choosing the right outdoor projector, you need to understand where and how you are going to use the device. Is it going to be needed at home, for business meetings, or you are planning to take it on a camping trip? Some of the best available outdoor projectors have built-in batteries. Also think about the brightness of the projector, which can vary depending on the availability of external light sources. When camping in the woods with less light, you need 200-300 ANSI lumens to get a quality picture. At home, you will need the best home projector with at least 1200 ANSI lumens so that the projector picture does not blend in with the ambient light and is visible.

Depending on what you like most, the best, affordable outdoor projector should fit your needs. For watching movies, focus on choosing a projector with a quality picture resolution like the XGIMI Halo+ model, such projectors are also suitable for business presentations. To enjoy pleasant music, choose models with good speakers or connect external column loudspeakers.
