Best Backyard Movie Projector
I know you are excited for your new Backyard Movie Theater, but let’s find your the Best Backyard Movie Projector first. So put the popcorn away for now.
There are no projectors on the market that are made just for outside use. So don’t worry about finding a backyard movie projector that says “outdoor”.
But there are a few things you need to take into consideration before you buy the best backyard movie projector for your home.
Most home theater projectors are 720p or 1080p and will do fine outside. But for your backyard movie projector to do a better job than just fine, try looking for a business model with resolution of 1280×800 or higher. Everything I have read in my research tells me to definitely buy a HD projector.
The Non HD projectors will do OK, but the image quality won’t be as good and maybe some of the darker movie shots will be too dark or not as clear as you will want them.
Also make sure the projector you choose has 2000 lumens or greater. All of the best backyard movie projectors I looked at, the lumens is plainly marked.
Please remember to bring your backyard movie projector inside after your use it. That also goes for the screen. If you want your back yard movie theater to last….take these tips to heart.
