Want to get a multimedia projector online? You might want to visit HuntOffice.co.uk and browse our wide range of multimedia projectors. We supply projectors which provide brightness ranging from 2000 lumens up to 3000 lumens. Our assortment includes basic multimedia projectors which are great for presentation and training purposes as well as more advanced projectors which support high resolution and are perfect for home cinema systems. You can choose from projectors made by Optoma, Epson, Acer, Sanyo and Sony.

When choosing a projector for the first time it can be difficult to identify which technology is best suited to your requirements. Thankfully, Huntoffice is here to clarify the differences between DLP, LCD and 3D Ready technologies.

We will first examine the differences between LCD and DLP before we focus on the newer 3D ready projector technology.

 Liquid Crystle Display (LCD) and Digital Light Processing (DLP) are two different kinds of projector technologies. Image results from LCD projectors and DLP projectors can vary significantly as both projectors use their own unique display technologies to product images

LCD Projectors (Liquid Crystle Display) –For this type of projector, the bulb is the primary source of illumination. The light from the lamp is divided into three beams, which is directed into 3 individual LCD glass panels. Each of the glass panels is fixed with a separate primary colour filter red, green, and blue.  In addition, tiny pixels are fitted on these LCD panels. The pixels function by controlling the level of light which passes through them. Once the pixels have filtered the light, the beam from the lamp is projected from the multimedia projector onto a screen giving you the exact image you wish to display.

  • LCD multimedia projectors produce more saturated colors than DLP
  • LCD projectors have an edge over DLP projectors when it comes to light-efficiency

DLP Projectors (Digital Light Processing) – Similar to LCD Multimedia projectors, DLP projectors have the projector lamp as it's light source and both LCD & DLP bulbs will eventually have to be replaced. The main difference between DLP and LCD projectors is the method in which the light from the projector lamp is directed through the machine to produce the final image. Instead of shooting through  LCD panels, light from a DLP Lamp is reflected off a DLP chip, which contains several tiny mirrors. These mirrors generate the light modulation needed by rotating back and forth.

  • DLP multimedia projectors produce higher contrast ratios with deeper black levels.
  • DLP multimedia projectors are more compact in size when compared to their LCD cousins.

"3D Ready" what does it mean?

Any 3D Ready projector must be capable of accepting and displaying a minimum of one stereoscopic 3D transmission signal format (frame sequential, frame packing, side-by-side, and checkerboard) from a computer, set-top box, game console, or Blu-ray player.

A 3D projector will alternately produce two images which are merged into one when you wear a pair of 3D shutter glasses. Wearing 3D glasses will only allow one of your eyes to view an image at a time. When this is performed at speed, your brain will not be able to distinguish the intermittent images and this results in a 3D effect. We deliver nationwide in the UK, including to London, Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow and Belfast.
