projector recomendations


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I know naff all about projectors and AV, beyond the basic concepts and terminology behind image projection. Nevertheless I'm endeavouring to source a projector suitable for use in a college theatre, the relevant dimensions of which are below:

 

maximum projection area: 7m width X 6m height

maximum distance from projection source to surface: 12m

maximum possible height of projector position above stage level: 6.3m

 

Intended use would largely be projecting / back projecting images and videos on to gauze cloths - no need for 3D stuff.

I have a budget of just £750 ideally the projector itself would weigh less than 30kg

 

Does such a thing exist? Or am I limited to hiring? Not too keen on going down the used / ex-hire purchase route

 

Thanks in advance

Just going to be straight up and say there's no way you're going to find a projector which, at 12m throw on a 6m high RP screen, can compete with stage lighting and be bought brand new for £750. Edited by dje

Looks like my naivety has got the better of me once again! Thanks for the clear response - my research does seem to support your statement. Guess I'll stick with hiring for now and slap it on the capital bid for next year
