I'm in need of a little help finding some new equipment for my auction company. Currently we have a Panasonic projector that puts out 4000 lumens (not sure on the model number) and I need to find us one that will work better for us. We do a lot of presentations at auctions and the majority of the time we are doing these in a well lit rooms. We have a 15ft. screen that we project on most of the time but we also have a 10ft (both white). Most of what we use our projector for is slideshows and video clips.

Our problem is when we are using our current projector its washed out due to the light. I have been looking around for something that would work better but have no idea what would be best. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance!

things like throw distance, real luminance of the room, your PJ model so that we know it's contrast and specially your lamp hours are needed to give a decent answer... maybe you don't need a new pj at all!

How many hours do you have on the lamp? High hours mean you only need to replace the lamp.

Rather than the Panny 4000, you need something with a lot more light output. You also need a screen that enhances contrast. Something like a Benq SP890. Drop us an email and we can help with recommendations.
