Step into a world of larger-than-life entertainment that transforms your living room into a mesmerising home cinema or gaming room with our range of projectors.
A projector is an optical device that projects images or videos onto a projector screen or surface. It works by receiving an input signal from a video source, such as a computer, Blu-ray player or gaming console, and then using a light source and a lens system to magnify and project the images onto a larger surface, typically a screen or wall.
We offer an extensive range of both full HD 1080p projectors and 4K projectors that offer crystal clear image quality. Transform your living room into a private cinema with our home cinema projectors or take your gaming to the next level with our dedicated gaming projectors. Our short throw projectors project large, cinematic images from a minimal distance, making them perfect for small rooms or meetings, while our portable projectors are lightweight options for using on-the-go.

There are a number of factors that you should consider when it comes to buying a projector. Start with your budget, ensuring it aligns with your image quality needs. Next, decide on the type of light source, whether it's lamps, LEDs, or lasers, with lasers having longer lifespans.
Brightness is crucial; check the ANSI Lumens rating to guarantee sufficient light output. A higher contrast ratio provides better image quality, so keep that in mind as well. Resolution should match your content, such as 1080p or 4K.
Pay attention to colour reproduction and make sure it meets your preferences. Check for necessary input options and consider the convenience of portability. Additionally, select the right screen for your room and projector type. Lastly, choose between DLP and LCD technology based on your personal preferences.
Home projectors vary in their electricity consumption, depending on factors such as type, brightness and usage patterns. However, in general, home projectors tend to use more electricity than standard TVs. TVs, especially modern LED or LCD models, are typically more energy-efficient. To minimise energy usage with your home projector, consider factors like the type of projector, brightness settings and energy-saving features, as well as remembering to turn it off when not in use.
How long a home projector should last is influenced by various factors, with the type of bulb being a key determinant. While projectors are generally designed for longevity, the bulb's characteristics play a crucial role. Halide bulbs, for instance, typically last for around 3,000 hours, whereas energy-efficient LED bulbs can last impressively for up to 60,000 hours.
Components within projectors can experience wear and tear over time. The electronic control board, although quite robust, is one such element. However, the pivotal factor governing a projector's lifespan remains the type of bulb used. While many modern projectors can function for extended periods without requiring bulb replacement, they do sometimes need to be replaced. Also it's worth noting that as video standards evolve, projectors may become outdated, which is another reason why you might want to upgrade your equipment.
