How to Create a Movie Theater Easy to Move from Room to Room


If you decided to go for your first home movie-watching projector, there are many things to consider, such as brightness, pixel density, and resolution, color reproduction accuracy, etc. Portability is a spec that is easily forgotten, but it is essential to keep it in mind.

Projectors that are light and easy to set up can be used in many other ways in addition to watching movies and series. You can move them from room to room or take them outside to your backyard for an impromptu movie-night outdoors in summer as well as share life`s memorable moments at your BBQ party. 

Powerful but Easy to Use

To enjoy your favorite movies, TV series, and sports and play video games both inside and outside of your house you will need a projector that has a great image quality, high brightness level and is easy to set up.

BenQ entertainment home series has all the benefits of a good projector for home: great quality of Full HD. The setup process is easy and straightforward.  

BenQ entertainment project can be set up in 5 to 10 minutes, and there are only five steps to start operating a projector. 

1. Find A Right Spot

First, you have to find a suitable setup position. Depending on the screen size you want and your projector`s throw ratio, you can calculate suitable distance from the screen to lens

Even if you do not have a white wall to project on, you can still make it work. Project on any flat colored surface and use BenQ`s Wall Color function to correct the projected image color. 

2. Plug Cables And Turn It On

Once you identified the perfect spot, you need to plug in the projector power cord and the source of content. You might also want to connect your own home stereo system. Then, turn on your projector. 

3. Adjusting the Image Height

If space and rooms décor allows you to align the projector to the center of the screen, then you do not need to worry about adjusting the height of the image.

On the other hand, if you want to project from the floor, table or any other available flat surface that is not perfectly aligned with the center of a screen; you will need to adjust image height. Use feet to adjust the image height. BenQ entertainment series projectors have triple adjustment feet that are superior to regular one-adjustment feet and provide greater flexibility of everyday use. 

4. Correct Projected Image Shape

Once you adjusted the image height, use the keystone to adjust the image shape. It can be done manually by pressing un and down buttons until the image is squared

To save time and effort, use BenQ`s auto keystone adjustment function to automatically correct keystone distortion in the projected image in a matter of seconds.







5. Select picture mode

The last step is to choose the picture mode. BenQ  Projectors has a few predefined picture modes to suit your environment and your content type

When using a projector outside or in the well-lit environment, choose the Living Room and Vivid modes. Cinema mode speaks for itself and is created to provide the best movie-watching experience in dark environments. Alternatively, you could also create a customized mode.


Projectors today have high-resolutions and produce a color-accurate image. Lightweight and more portable than TVs, they are very versatile in their applications. When choosing a projector for movie-watching at home, it is crucial to choose a projector with a fast and easy setup. You can quickly move the projector around your house from room to room and even take it outside for the best experience wherever you go.
