Projector hire: Essential guide for choosing the right projector

Projectors have improved dramatically in recent years. Long gone are clunky overhead devices – you can now find projectors which incorporate powerful features such as wireless connectivity, HD displays, interactive projection (where you can annotate right onto the image) and the ability to project even in bright conditions – and some are even mobile and can be set up anywhere in just a few seconds.

Projector rental lets you access all these powerful tech advances without major investments up front. So, when should you rent a projector, and what should you look out for? Here’s everything you need to know about projector hire.

Projector hire guide: Tips and advice

There are multiple different scenarios where you might want to use a projector – different kind of kit suit these situations more or less well.

Major conference event: Will you be presenting in front of a large audience in an auditorium? If so, you’ll need a projector with a wide range and which can produce images at a high resolution from a distance.

Business meeting: Will you be projecting onto a screen or office wall in front of a small group of colleagues? Choose a short throw projector which provides clear, high-fidelity images in a small space.

School or university: Will you be using a projector in the classroom? You might benefit from using a projector which has plenty of connections for USBs, WiFi and other media. This lets you connect directly to one of our laptop rental options or other device and interact with what’s being projected.

A projector? Or a TV screen?

In recent years, we’ve seen a big growth in the use of large screen TVs as a way of displaying and interacting with information in offices and classrooms. In some cases TVs are the perfect solution – for instance, for a small team of colleagues collaborating on a project in a meeting room. However, for large presentations in front of big audiences, projectors often still win out. Some people find projectors easier on the eye than televisions too.

What features to look out for in your projector

Every projector comes with a range of special features which make it more or less suitable for different tasks. When browsing for projector hire, think about:

  • The size of your audience: If you’re filling out an auditorium, you want a large venue projector, while for smaller rooms, a short throw projector will do fine.

  • Resolution: The higher the resolution, the sharper the image. If your presentation includes high-definition images, you’ll want to choose something with high resolution. But if you’re just projecting text, you won’t need something so high-spec.

  • Connectivity and ports: Will you be connecting your projector to a laptop, PA system or other device? Make sure the device and the projector can ‘talk’ to one another – either via a USB, Bluetooth or some other means.

  • Remote control: Will you require a remote control to switch between slides during your presentation? Make sure you select a projector which features this functionality.

  • Location and light levels: The more ambient light which is present the more powerful a projector you’ll need to create a good contrast and clear image for your audience to view.
