What gives off more heat? 100-inch TV or Protector?
My home theater has a real problem with overheating especially in the summer.
There is no Air condition line and simple a small fan to bring in outside air. The theater was design by the previous home owners. Anyway, I was thinking of either getting a 4K protector or a 4K large TV but was wondering which type threw out more heat?
Um.. what is in the theater now?
Sounds like you should be upgrading the cooling rather than the video display..
agreed. fix the problem instead of avoiding it.
but to stir the pot, a projector could be placed outside the room in a 'projection booth' and contribute no heat whatsoever. still, it'd be less work to fix the ventilation in the main room.
what I can tell you, is that the Samsung f8500 I have in my basement runs at about 40C, and I have not had any issues with heat in the room whatsoever. I had an Epson hc720 projector that used to cause me some heating issues(though I believe that may have been more about the retractable screen restricting airflow), and I currently have a jvc x35 projector that also has caused no issues with heating.
like anything, some models will be more efficient than others too.
Remember that the temperature of a piece of equipment is only an indicator - it's really a question of power consumption, since 100% of the electricity used by all these devices is turned into heat. As fierce_gt says, if you can move that equipment out of the room, the heat generation moves out as well.
Do a search through the forum for "mini-split" AC systems, which might be an option for the room...
