We keep on the cutting edge of audio visual innovation. For example, plasma displays have radical changed the landscape for corporate and educational presentations. They deliver bright images and clear sound in any setting. Some have inputs for S-VHS, NTSC, PAL and SECAM formatted for video for easy use, anywhere around the world. Plasma displays provide high resolution impact in a fully lit room or public area with flicker free full color screens. These presentation systems can operate smoothly even when multiple windows are open. Many feature on-screen menus for image adjustments, an adjustable tilt stand and built-in speakers for true multimedia applications. Focus AV offers the latest and a large selection of screens. These breakthroughs allow detailed digital video, text or data screen images from PC, laptop or notebook to be clearly viewed from a distance.

In the digital projector space, to best suit for your needs, we first start by asking these three questions:

How many people will at the presentation?

This helps determine the size of the projected image that's required for everyone to easily view the presentation. As the number of people increases, the image must also get larger and when the image expands, the projected light is spread out across a greater area. This reduces the apparent brightness of the projector. By knowing the approximate amount of people in attendance, we can determine the appropriate number of brightness, or lumens needed (generally 2000 to 7500 lumen projectors), as well as the optimal screen size for your presentation.

How much ambient light will there be?

A dark room will provide the best image regardless of projector brightness. However, most presentations require some lighting for note taking, eye contact, and audience interaction. There are different levels of lumens be considered for the home theater, corporate or conference room settings. Focus AV will survey the situation and recommend the best option for both indoor or outdoor presentation settings.

What are you using it for?

The following technical points are some of the considerations for best projector usage. The type of material you're presenting will determine the appropriate native resolution for your projector: SVGA resolution projectors (800x600) are best for displaying large text or less detailed images. XGA resolution projectors (1024x768) are the most common and are compatible with the vast majority of PCs and DVD players. They're best for showing detailed PowerPoint slides, normal sized fonts, and high quality images and videos. SXGA (1280x1024) and SXGA+ (1400x1050) resolution projectors are appropriate for displaying engineering drawings, digital photography, HD applications or other images of a highly detailed technical nature.
Keep in mind that the best resolution for your projector is the resolution of the computer you intend to use with it. If you typically use a notebook computer with XGA resolution, you'll want a projector with the same native XGA resolution in order to get the sharpest and cleanest image. Similarly, if you normally use a computer with higher than XGA output, such as SXGA+, you will get the best picture from a projector that has the same native resolution.
