Projector Experience Event - Top 3 Myths About Building A Home Cinema


We completed our 2 day short-throw home projector experience event at ENTHEOS, showcasing the different setups one can have in the comfort of their home.

We are glad we helped to address some of the pain points which some home owners encountered and shared with them how it can be overcome. Here we list the most asked questions we heard in the event.

Q1: I don’t have a big / dark room at home, is it still possible to build a home cinema?

It is possible!

Most places are not completely dark. In the living room of the average consumer, there will always be some faint light from windows. So a higher lumen projector, around 3000 lumens, works best.

As for a small suite or bedroom, perhaps just 10 feet by 10 feet, since you’ve a narrower space, the projection distance becomes more important. It is better to buy a short-throw projector. We recommend BenQ W2700 shorter-throw projectors. From just 2.5m (8’ 2.5”) away, you can project a 100” screen, which is perfect for making the most out of small spaces.

Q2: Bigger is better for screen size?

Even if your wall is large enough, bigger is better still may not always prove the best strategy. That is because the bigger the screen is, the longer the distance you need to sit away from it to watch comfortably. If your room is not large enough, you might be better off opting for a smaller screen.

Q3: How to connect projector to laptop, smartphone and other devices?

Just connect your laptops or mobile devices to projector with HDMI cable.
