How to Rent a Projector for Your Presentation

Rent a Projector

The goal of any presentation is to leave a lasting impression on your audience and this task can be made easier by using technology and tools to enhance your delivery. Renting a projector for a presentation is one of the most common—and effective—ways of improving your performance. Whether you wish to deliver a slideshow presentation, run video from a computer, display single images or backdrops, or any other use of a visual aid, a quality projector will provide the assistance you need.

How to Select a Projector That Suits Your Needs

Consider the Size of the Room

When you’re looking to rent a projector, the size of the room partially dictates where a projector can be placed and will influence whether you get a short-throw or a long-throw type of projector. These terms refer to whether the projector is designed to be placed closer to the screen (like in a conference) or further away from the screen (like in a movie theatre).

Audience Size

The number of people that will be watching your presentation will help establish how big the projection will need to be for everyone to see it clearly. Since moving a projector further from the screen expands the image but reduces its brightness, the luminosity of a projector will be influenced by your audience size. A good rule of thumb is that audiences of less than 100 people can be served well with a 2000-lumen projector but more than people 100 may call for up to a 3000-lumen projector.

Nature of the Presentation

The lumen count is a measure of a projector's brightness and, consequently, how clear and crisp an image can be. This is important to keep in mind when considering the type of material you will be presenting. If your visual aids are highly detailed, a 3000-lumen projector may be needed to get a clear image even if your audience is modest in size. If your images are less detailed or feature things like large-font text, lumens in the 2000 range may be enough.

Conditions of the Venue

When getting a presentation projector for rent, it helps to know what the venue conditions will be like while it is in use. The brighter the venue, the more lumens you will need to prevent the projection from appearing faded or washed. This makes high-lumen projectors more advisable if you are presenting outdoors during the day; you can make effective use of lower-lumen projectors if you are indoors and can make a room almost completely dark.
