When you rent a projector from, you will undoubtedly be pleased with the quality of the audio visual display that each of our projector rentals produces. To get the most out of your projector rental experience,abide by these few simple rules when considering your options for setting up your digital projector:

1. Choose the right venue. The venue is essential in creating the best environment to use your superior DLP or LCD projector rental. It is crucial that the venue is big enough so that the entire audience of your presentation can view the projection surface from an appropriate angle. Renters get the most out of their digital multimedia projectors when various factors such as size, shape, and outside light intrusion work together to form an optimized location.

2. Test your throw distance.Throw distance is the distance from the tip of your projector rental to your surface, wall, or rental screen, and it plays a significant role in the quality of your image. Each of our multimedia projectors for rent has a different internal formula that produces a different sized image at a certain distance from your projection surface. To decide where to place your rental projector to produce the display quality you desire, visit the location of your presentation early and practice projecting an image onto your surface from various distances away, until you find the clarity and size you are looking for. If your venue is small, you may find that you have to place your rental projector in an adjacent room to produce a display that fills your entire screen or surface.

3. Select the appropriate brightness.While all of our projectors for rent have superior brightness capabilities, the ideal brightness setting for your rented projector depends on several things, including: the purpose of your event, the size of both your venue and audience, and the ambient light from outside sources. Generally speaking, however, if high levels of ambient light are present, or if you are displaying a presentation outside, you will need at least 2000 lumens of brightness to produce the best picture. When smaller amounts of light are present, 1200-1500 lumens are recommended, and when the venue is completely dark (such as a dark home cinema room), 1000 lumens may be all you need to produce a quality display.

4. Be sure to utilize your best connection option. Advanced projector rentals from PCRetro Rentals come with several connectability options. Low-input sources such as a VGA connection or laptop will produce a poorer quality image than an HDMI connection, or a built in HD DVD or Blu-Ray player.

And if, at any point throughout the set up of your rental projector, further questions should arise, our staff is available to assist you. For Further Info please contact us through our contact page.
