Each affords a different quality of picture and performance as well as the challenges of maintaining each system.

Projection TVs are still a popular choice for people who want big screen entertainment. From the basic home theater to such main venues as bars, night clubs, schools, the projection TV is both desired and required. It’s the ability to project a large enough screen image with enough clarity and richness to present the images for both entertainment and education. You’ll need to search for what each type of projector system has to offer. Will it be compatible for the area you wish to place it and do they afford the ability to be compatible with other systems like HDTV, HDMI, video game consoles like PlayStations or XBox 360s. A projection TV is to be a major component of an entertainment system and it has to be able to be ready for today’s technology and that of the near future.

Projection TV Power Consumption

There’s a question of portability of the projection TV unit. Can you move it easily about the house should you need to entertain elsewhere. Can you and your children operate the system? How about seniors? Will the unit be obtrusive or easy to place where you want it out of harm’s way?

Additional technical things need to be attended to such as the brightness and contrast ratio, the ambient lighting of where you’ll be placing the TV. Since the front screen projection units require dimming of the light you wouldn’t want it in an area that the sun or other light intrudes. Pixel density is important and the ability of the TV to receive HD signals. This gets even more technical as it is explained here as HDTV can only be seen when the broadcast is HD. You have a pixel count and resolution for example indicated as Interlaced or Progressive. So for a 720p HDTV signal you would need a 1280×720 pixel count for what is called a native display. A 1080i or Interlaced HDTV signal would need a 1920×1080 native pixel count. Now things ramp up to when you’re using a Blu-ray system as it would require a projector with 1920×1080 native pixel and the means to display in the 1080p or Progressive format.

That being said there are also the issue in the types of screens available. If it’s a rear projection TV the screen comes with it but with front projection the screen is separate. There are several manufacturers who supply screens and you’ll have to shop around and ask questions from other customers as well. Some models of projection TVs go better with other screens. You’ll have to check out the combinations and on sight displays.

Of course the variety of projectors might confuse you but you’ll cover the basic things like energy consumption, performance, durability, and of course the warranties. Reason being because like any big ticket item you do not want to have a warranty run out on you when you need it most. Some of these units cost quite a penny. So double check if you can get the maximum warranty from the manufacturer and if you can extend it via a purchase option.
