Recommendatoin - WXGA projector with 3000+ lumens

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I need to track down a projector for a meeting room, in which we will be doing trainings and other presentations. Some computer based display and some video.

The room will be partly light controlled, in the sense that we have multiple rows of dimmable can lights, but we will not have the room dark, as people need to take notes, etc.

I would like at least 3000 lumens, but more would be better. I want to drive a 137" 16x9 screen, from 15-20' (I can be more flexible than that, but figure that is the sweet spot for a projector displaying that screen size).

I would prefer to go with something sub $5000 (less would be better).

Can anyone offer some suggestions?

Thanks

Canon SX50, SX60 are high resolution and very bright. Not WXGA though, they're 1400x1050 (4:3)

Well, a Sanyo PLV-70, PLV-80, or PLV-75 would come close. Not quite 3000 lumens, though. Consider a moderate gain screen.

An Infocus 333 also comes pretty close, it's rated at ~3000 lumens, but costs $7,500. See the e-cinema sale thread at the top of the page if you're interested.

As long as video performance isn't that big of a deal.

The Mitsubishi WD2000U is a feature-rich widescreen data projector with impressively high lumen output. It is ideal for a corporate conference room, or a small auditorium or college lecture hall.

Ok, ok, just have trouble thinking someone on this forum doesn't care that much about the video. Sorry. Sheesh.

Hi everyone

Same question, but mainly for video application. So 16:9 native resolution AND ABSOLUTELY price < 5000$. 3000 ansi lumen minimum.

Any suggestions?

hmmm. I'm looking for pretty much the same thing. I'm not quite as price constrained as the OP, though. Lemme "axe" you some questions.

1. Is a DLP projector (or other type) better than large plasma (or other type) displays?
2. Front or rear projector better?
3. If front, is there a minimum distance from the display screen?
4. Is there something I can use to paint the wall on which images would be displayed so I don't need a screen? Possibly something on which I could write with markers or chalk? If the image would be crummy, could I build a permanent fram type arrangement for a screen?
5. Typical distance from the screen for a projector?
6. Seems like projectors max out around 3000 lumens or so. Is that enough to see in light that is dimmed but still adequate for the viwers to write in.

thanks for any help!

Bringing an old thread back from the dead.

Anyone have a recommendation for a high lumen projector to use as a scoreboard in a medium size auditorium with normal light levels? Below $2500?

I assume you are going to do this RP?

Would this be the better route to take versus FP?
