  • Outdoor Projection: Create an Outdoor Cinema

    Try something new this summer and experience an outdoor cinema with friends and family. Whether you are looking to project movies or just watch the game on the big screen either in the garden or camping, we have you covered with every screen and projector option to suit every budget.

    Use a projector for multiple applications other than just for outdoors such as creating a home cinema entertainment system on the big screen, gaming, zoom, work and more.

    Read more to find out tips and tricks on maximising your outdoor cinema experience. See recommendations below for ultra portable projectors, bright lamp based projectors and screens.

    Tips & Tricks for Projecting Outdoors

    Projecting outside during the day can be tricky as the sunlight can fade images just like on a TV, however there are plenty of solutions to help maximise the viewing experience. Here are just some below:

    • - Using a gazebo / canopy is a great way to block off direct sunlight and stop the projected image fading
    • - Use an Ambient Light Rejection (ALR) screen with a high gain to increase the brightness (some ALR screens are only suitable with UST projectors, please check that your projector is compatible with the screen).
    • - Use a portable projector in a tent and enjoy a memorable camping trip.
    • - Alternatively, project in the shade where the sun isn’t facing

    Other safety tips for projecting outdoors:

    • - Projecting outdoors can be cold, especially at night, be sure to bring blankets, covers or electric heaters to keep you comfortable and warm whilst you enjoy the movie.
    • - Always remember to keep the projectors away from any water, turn off sprinklers and move drinks away from the projector.
    • - Don't forget an extension lead to plug in your devices outside, preferably waterproof to avoid any damages.
    • - Remember to bring the equipment indoors at night and keep in a safe place.
    • - Keep cables out of the way, save any accidents and secure them down.

    Outdoor Projection

    Creating Your Outdoor Cinema

    When creating an outdoor cinema choosing the right projector and screen for your setup is critical. We have selected a range of options from high powered lamp projectors, portable LED projectors to a range of outdoor screens to suit every budget.

    These will work in shaded areas during the day, at dusk or at night, providing glorious images up to 120" that will transport you  into the movie or the game.

    High Brightness Lamp / Laser Based Projectors

    These projectors are ideal for projecting outdoors with their high brightness. There is a trade off between lamp projectors and portable projectors. Portable projectors offer portability, wireless connectivity, LED light source, android and built in battery whereas lamp based projectors generally speaking only offer high brightness, without all these other features, and are mains powered so an extension cable may be needed.

    Bear in mind when reviewing lumens on Amazon or Ebay lumens are often quoted at 6 to 20 times the real ansi lumen figure so be sure to compare like with like. For example, some of the 4000 - 5000 ansi lumen models below would equate to 100,000 lumens using the marketing lumens method of comparison!

    Luxury All-In-One Projector, Speaker, Screen Bundle

    Chiq A5U 4K Ultra Short Throw Projector & Screen Bundle - From £2,955.00

    Whilst a 2500 ANSI lumen projector may not be the first choice for an outdoor projector, the CHiQ A5U is worth considering due to its separate high powered speakers and highly understated lumens. The A5U has the equivalent brightness of some other manufacturers whose stated advertised lumens are 4,000 - 5,500 ansi lumens so don't be put off by the low advertised ansi lumens. Bear in mind when reviewing lumens on Amazon or Ebay lumens are often quoted at 6 to 20 times the real ansi lumen figure so be sure to compare like with like.

    In addition,  using the A5U with an ALR screen drastically reduces any ambient light issues making it a great high end home cinema for indoors or outdoors.

    It's also worth considering the CHiQ E5F36 which is an alternative high brightness 3600 ansi lumen laser UST projector with Full HD at a much lower price.

    The all-in-one A5U bundle can be easily setup by placing the A5U on a table and projecting on to the mounted ALR screen. Its separate 40 watt designer speakers provide amazing quality sound even when outdoors. The screen can be mounted on most surfaces including a fence, shed or wall and can be unhooked quickly and be flat packed away for easy storage.

    Note: None of the screens are waterproof.

    Ultra short throw (UST) projectors like the A5U only work with fixed frame screens, these can either be standard fixed frame or ALR screens.

    Portable: All-In-One Projectors

    Portable projectors are not as bright as lamp based projectors but have more features such as built in battery, android operating system, wireless connectivity and more.  However there will be plenty of projectors on Amazon claiming to be much brighter than they actually are by 6 to 20 times the true figure!

    Portable projectors are a perfect all-in-one solution when projecting at night, in a tent / gazebo or in the shade.

    All the portable models all have standard TRIPOD MOUNTS on the base of the projector so you can put them on a mini tripod eg on a table or on a large floor standing tripod. You can also simply mount them on any flat surface but the tripods help angle the projector onto the screen and are a well worth while accessory to invest in. £14 - £29.

    Outdoor  / Indoor Screen Options:

    Choose from a range of projector screens for use both indoors and outdoors. Options include fixed frame, portable, easy setup or even Ambient Light Rejection (ALR) to reduce sunlight.

    Note, none of these screens are waterproof and will need to be taken down at the first site of rain however they can be used indoors and outdoors.

    Here are some useful screens for outdoor use

    • Inflatable Screens (140")
    • Ambient Light Rejection (ALR) Screens (Fixed frame flat packed)
    • Fixed Frame
    • Wall / ceiling screens ideal to fix on a wall or shed
    • Portable Screens (tripod, fast fold from 80" to 140")

    Ambient Light Rejection (ALR) Screens for use with UST Projectors

    With new ambient light rejection technology, create a more impressive and brighter image in daylight conditions. ALR material is designed to reflect the projected image, promoting the deep black levels and vibrant colours while absorbing the ambient light to prevent the image from fading.

    Please note, some ALR screens only work with ultra short throw projectors although it is possible to have ALR for non UST models so it is important to take advice first. Please contact us via email, live chat or by phone.

    There are two separate options for ambient light rejection screens to be used outdoors.

    CHiQ 100” S-CK100 ALR Screen

    100" Ambient Light Rejection Screen

    With CHiQs advanced material technology, the S-CK series offers a screen gain of 0.8 while enhancing the image contrast by 20 times making it perfect for brighter areas whether that be your garden, shed or lounge.

     

    See more ALR/CLR screens here: https://www.personalprojector.co.uk/accessories-screens/screens/alr-screens.html 

    Inflatable 140" Outdoor Projection Screen

    The inflatable 140" projection screen is the ideal screen for your outdoor cinema. This packs down to a manageable size and once fully set up delivers a monster 140" viewable screen size.

    Setting up this portable inflatable screen is simple. Simply use the included pump to inflate the screen in seconds and attach the screen fabric which can be front (standard) or rear projection (optional) !

    See the video below to see how fast this huge outdoor projector screen inflates.

    Portable Screens

    We have a wide choice of screen options for indoor and outdoor use that divide into fast fold screens with flight cases that go from 80" to 140", alternatively we have 80" lightweight tripod projector screens.

    Huge Portable Screen 4m wide

    When using lightweight projector screens such as the 80" Tripod Screen, it is recommended using tent pegs, sandbags or rope tensioner to keep the screen safely in place.

    Tripod Screen

    Electric / Manual Pull Down Screens

    These wall or ceiling mounted screens fix with ease to a shed, wall or fence panel. They are designed for indoor use so as with all screens its essential to make sure they can be quickly removed in case the weather changes.

  • Leeds Light Night Guide 2019: Top Places to Visit and Suggest Route Plans

    The Leeds Light Festival 2019 is in its 15th year and its one of the most impressive light festivals in the world with 80,000 visitors. Here's what you can expect to see and ideas of where to go or plan your journey.

    Getting to Leeds Light Festival

    For a full list of transport options car parks click here

    If you are coming from the south or via M1 the Tetley car park is a good place to park since it means you don't have to go through all the traffic in Leeds Centre and everything is a short walk from there.

    Plan: Where to go at the Leeds Light Night: Top things to see

    If you're visiting the Light Night for the first time and want to know the best places to go here is a good route to follow to ensure you see the big attractions.

    The best exhibits will be centred around these areas so a good route might be to start at by a walk up the main street of Briggate and into the Victoria Quarter / Arcade Zone, then down The Headrow (Town Hall & Leeds Library for some warmth) and onto Millenium Square,  followed by City Square / Station Zone (projections onto the Queens Hotel) and across to Trinity Shopping centre followed before getting back to the bottom of Briggate.

    There will be timed shows as well as projections and art going on the whole time in all these areas along with market stalls and an array of street artists and performers. See below for the full list of events/shows. You can just walk around and see lots of different things going on almost everywhere you go on the route above.

    You can also take a free water taxi from Leeds Station (near the Hilton Hotel) to Leeds Dock (see the map for more info) and there are plenty of other venues from the First Direct Arena projecting special lights onto its roof to the Playhouse, Opera North to name a few. See the MAP below for the full list.

    Not to Be Missed at Leeds Light Night 2019

    The Flying Violinist

    Where / When: Trinity Shopping Centre 6.30pm, 7.30pm, 8:30pm and 9.30pm

    31. The Flying Violinist - Cirque Bijou (UK)

    The Vision (Ocubo Portugal)

    Projecting constantly onto the Queens Hotel next to the Train Station.

    37. The Vision - Ocubo (Portugal)

    Fire n Light Yorkshire Circus 

    When: 7.30; 8.45; 10.00

    56. Fire ‘n’ Light - Yorkshire Circus Collective (UK)

    In 2018 we saw everything from carnavals to tightrope walkers to individual artists riding on bikes with pico projectors projecting all around them onto the floors as they moved around.

    Its an extravaganza of light thats well worth visiting for all the family.

    The Complete list of events at Leeds Light Night 2019

    Thurs 10th Oct 2019

    Fri 10th Oct 2019

    The Leeds Light Night App / Paper Guide

    New this year in 2019 £1.99. Currently the app, although it helps contribute to event funding, its a little light on information and we found the website has a lot more useful information on it. However, to help keep the event free its well worth buying the paper guide book for Leeds Light night which has a lot of good info inside.

    You can also download the Leeds Light Night 2019 MAP of events here.

  • Amazing Obsbot Camera Auto Tracks Subject at 40m

    If you cant get a photographer or videographer for the day then a robot tracking camera might be just up your street. Let this auto tracking camera from Obsbot do all the work for you. You can then beam the images live through Youtube and play them back on an ultra portable projector like the Pico Genie M550 Plus or Pico Genie Polar projectors, even if you are in the middle of a field.


    One-shot video made easy. OBSBOT Tail uses AI technologies like deep visual  subject tracking, recognition, posture estimation and behavioral analysis to achieve smart tracking and focus shooting of target up to 40 meters away. The new Shar-lock function can quickly identify and re-track even if target gets lost in a complex environment. These seem to work at high speed and track even fast movements from performers at some distance away.

    The Obsbot has a high spec, shoots up to 4K at 60fps with slow mo upto 240fps and a 10x optical lens sets (including 4 HOYA aspherical optical lenses).

    For all that tech in one device your probably thinking the Obsbot is going to be sky high in price but its a actually only £450 and when you consider the cost of a gimbal let alone the price of sophisticated fast AI motion tracking, the Obsbot Tail is certainly going to give the GoPro a run for its money.

     

     

     

    The Pico Genie has Android built in so you can log into the YouTube App onboard and live stream direct from the camera. You can also take out the micro SD card from the Osbot Tail camera and drop it into the M550 projector and it will auto play back your images on a huge screen.

    Both the Obsbot Tail and the Pico Genie M550 Plus are ultra portable high end devices that compliment each other well.

  • 1TB SD Card: Enhance Storage on Your Projector / Camera

    If you take as many photos and particularly videos as we do these days with an SLR, you'll find you quickly run out of storage on your device especially if taking Full HD or 4K videos. Also the device can start to run slower as soon as it fills up the card. Well now Sandisk have brought out a solution to this problem with a 1TB ultra fast SD card to solve these issues.

    Whilst the storage is expensive its very fast and means you can avoid expensive monthly cloud subscriptions by retaining data on your card for longer without overwriting.

    We recently did an exhibition where a fast storage device would have really come in handy allowing large storage of 4k videos from our photographers SLR camera and then direct transfer to the projector for instant playback (although transfer needs to be done via wire as most portable projectors use micro SD or USB but it does mean you have more freedom to take videos without constantly transferring).

    Price: £479 / $435 / $479

  • Stunning Graphic Displays that Transform Walls

    At ISE this year there were a number of highly impressive visual displays which immersed the viewer into another world. Moving crowds stopped and lingered at the awesome visual displays that drew you into eye-popping displays and made you feel like you actually there.
