Some home theater projectors have 700 ANSI Lumens, a few projectors have 3000 ANSI Lumens…so what’s the distinction and what number of would you say you will require for your home theater? Any individual who is purchasing a projector will pose a similar inquiry. More Lumens isn’t in every case better and there are a few reasons why. Be cautious, in the event that you go through more cash than you need to, you may be discontent with the image and you’ll wind up going through far more cash in the future on the very projector that you were discontent with in any case.

  • Here’s beginning and end you need to think about ANSI Lumens:

Lumens’ meaning could be a little more obvious.

ANSI is an abbreviation for “American National Standards Institute”. A Lumen is an estimation of light wave force. Each projector that utilizes ANSI as a standard have been estimated with similar instruments and is an exact showcase of the number of Lumens there truly are inside a home theater projector. For instance, projector “A” was estimated in ANSI Lumens with ANSI instruments and projector “B” was estimated by the producers instruments. Both projector’s case to have 1000 Lumens yet Its a sure thing to expect that projector “A” really has 1000 lumens while projector “B” may really have just 700 Lumens since it wasn’t estimated by the public norm.

Continuously purchase a projector estimated in ANSI Lumens. That way, you’ll know without a doubt you purchased the right projector dependent on the number of genuine Lumens it has straightforwardly affecting the nature of the image in your home theater.

3 Reasons Why Too Many ANSI Lumens can be awful:

Light Reflection: If you’ve at any point taken a laser pointer and pointed it at a white divider in obscurity, you’ll notice the dazzling red speck on the divider. You’ll likewise see that the red spot is brilliant to the point that it makes a fluffy light around the speck. Exactly the same thing happens when a home theater projector is excessively brilliant. The image looks fluffy on the grounds that the brilliant picture cleans itself out with light.

On the off chance that the picture is excessively brilliant, it will thusly mirror light around the room and light up the performance center room. Presently, not exclusively is the room excessively splendid for a home theater, however the dividers of the room will mirror the light back onto the projector screen and wash out the picture much more.

Bulb Life: The more the Lumens, the more splendid the projector bulb. The more splendid the bulb, the more blazing the bulb gets. The more smoking the bulb gets, the speedier the bulb wears out. I don’t think about you, however burning through $200 on a home theater projector bulb a greater number of times than I need to won’t make me extremely cheerful.

Cost: Simply put, on the off chance that your going to purchase a costly projector with more Lumens, go through cash every year on a bulb in light of the fact that the light gets excessively hot, your going to toss many dollars out the window for reasons unknown.

What number of ANSI Lumens do you require?

Low to No Ambient Lighting – 800 to 1200 ANSI Lumens: If you have a totally dull home theater or on the other hand in the event that you have sufficient surrounding light to see however insufficient to peruse a paper in your home auditorium room, all you need is a projector with in excess of 800 Lumens, yet close to 1200 Lumens.

Low to Moderate Ambient Lighting – 1200 – 1800 ANSI Lumens: If you’d prefer to watch your home theater projector with encompassing lighting from where you can scarcely peruse a paper to enough to peruse a book, you’ll need no less than 1200 except for close to 1800 ANSI Lumens.

Moderate to High Ambient Lighting – 2000 to 2800 ANSI Lumens: If your home auditorium is illuminated with sufficient surrounding light to see plainly, your going to require something like 2000 Lumens to see the image. The image will appear to be cleaned out if your projector screen is white so it is prescribed to buy a hazier screen, for example, a cinema or a dark precious stone screen.

High Ambient Lighting to an Outdoor Theater – 2800 to 4000 ANSI Lumens: If you plan on utilizing your projector outside or in a performance center with windows, outside light or splendid lighting, you will require a projector with no less than 2800 ANSI Lumens and to be protected, somewhere near 3200 Lumens should work. You will see that the shadings will be cleaned out except if you utilize a screen shading other than white.
