My new house has been decorated recently. I seldom watch TV but my living room still set a TV as parents’ demand. Anyway, I can decide how to decorate the master room. So, I decided to equip it with a projector because I understand a little bit about it. Due to my own safety, I chose a side projector.WHY NOT A HANGING PROJECTOR IN MASTER ROOM?
If there is a projector on my head, I’m afraid I just cannot sleep well at night. The BenQ W1070+ is generally recognized as one of the most cost-effective projects for home projection, and the performance aspect is just good so I am not gonna talk much. I just directly talk about the side part.
KEYPOINT — SIDE PROJECTOR
(THE DISADVANTAGES OF A SIDE PROJECTOR, AS BEN-Q FOR EXAMPLE)
Solve the problem that the customer can’t projecting straight due to the space
1 Missing image quality. Well, from my experience, it is not a big deal. Some friends say it only appears when playing the project-files. But I don’t think people will do that in the bedroom.
2 Shadow of projection affect the experience.
Some friend wrote text about W1070+ side projector before, but it only has the title and it really gave me some misleading.
1 Unwrapped the package put it on a night table or bay window.
2 Turn it on, adjust the projection and use the scalable rods under the projection to move it.
The photo is the initial position and chooses “Front”.
3 Here comes the most important step, well it is actually easy for you.
Use the T correction to make it flat.
Then I will tell you about shadow. People usually can see a projection like this.
But actually the side projection was like this. There is a pale T shaped shadow. The light gets darker, and the phenomenon seems to be more obvious. Because the side projector requires T-shaped correction, the T-shaped frame that residues after correction can affect the visual experience. I ask the customer service of BenQ before, this kind of circumstance is inevitable for a side projector and cannot eliminate.
The COMPARISON OF IMAGE QUALITY EFFECT
I only got 720P and 1080P version of the YOUR NAME.
Basically side projector does not affect the image quality that much. The projection size is 1*1.8m, about 80 inches.
SUMMARY & PRECAUTIONS
From the author’s point of view, the limitation of bedroom projection is very big. Of course it is okay to have one in bedroom, but you need to notice the condition that may encounter in advance.
The size of the projection wall
Normal bedroom projection of 80-100 inch effect is nice. And the space that needs to leave at least 1-1.2M in the center of the projection wall and you need to plan beforehand.
Like the author’s home, there is a make-up table under the air conditioner. So the actual projection shrank a bit in order to avoid the table.
As shown in the figure below, the make-up table will block the projection screen.
THE POSITION OF THE PROJECTOR
1 HANGING RIGHT ON THE BED
In comparison, this method may be the best and provides the best imaging. The only weakness is that perhaps some people can’t stand a projector on the head when he sleeps. What about it falls down?
2 BESIDE TABLE PROJECTOR
Like the author’s method, there are picture loss and shadow. But if can be accepted, you can choose this plan.
3 PROJECTORS ON BACK OF THE BED
The plan is about the same as plan 1. You don’t need to lift the wiring in advance.
Disadvantages: It is ugly. It’s not convenient to take it. And how do watch a film while hug my wife?
4 ROTATING BRACKET RELEASING
The position of the projector can be adjusted by rotating bracket. Although it is nice to see from the image above, it is actually not very different from the first three. The side projector performance just the same effect as plan 2. the positive projector blocks the view of the viewer or hang over the viewer.
The only advantage is that whether short focal or long focal of the projector is okay, because the bracket is adjustable.
5 SUPER SHORT FOCUS PROJECTION
At present, super short focus starts at 1W, so I’m just saying, not recommended.
6 If the bedroom is large enough, there are more solutions for you. for example: the projection can be mounted in the center of the room.
