Projector Alternative

Dec 11, 2016 10:37PM PST

My church is looking for an alternative to using a projector in our main sanctuary. There are south facing windows which cast a lot of light on projector screening making it very difficult/impossible to see anything. I honestly don't know what options we have. The current screen is pretty big ( I don't have exact measurements, I'll update in the next day or so when I do) and we're expecting to have to drop a good wad of cash on this, so all options are on the table for now. An option I was also pursuing was getting a better projector to compensate for the bright light, so model suggestions would be appreciated too. The current projector is mounted probably 30'-40' from the screen. Thank you in advance!

It is the solution; however, that means covering stained glass windows, which isn't an option.

Nuclear powered so to overcome that will be costly. Yes there are now screens you see outdoors but that took years of development and are not projection. To overcome the light you need many times more lumens than any projector you'll find in retail or consumer shops.

Try https://epson.com/high-lumen-projectors-for-large-venues and if you have Sunlight you'll have to get the most powerful 12,000 Lumen model and may still need to drop a shade at the front of the hall.

I'll look into those. Honestly, I'm sure that there would be such an improvement over what is currently there, no one would care about putting up a shade. Currently, it's near impossible to see any detail in pictures.
