    Projector People Respond: 3 Reasons Why Churches are Behind the Technology Curve

    Church Mag Logo

    In a recent post for Church Mag, Chase Livingston shared his list of why churches are behind the technology curve. We agree that his reasons – money, knowledge, and the powers that be – can be major stumbling-blocks for churches trying to use technology to improve communication in their churches.

    Here at Projector People, we work hard to help churches overcome these issues. Here’s how:

    1. Money

    Yes, technology upgrades can be expensive. But, recent advances in technology mean that the several thousand dollar projector you were considering last year can now be had for less than a grand. Lots of new product releases paired with the slowed economy means your church can see a major bang-for-the-buck if you’re in the market for a new projector right now.

    Money-Saving Tip: Select manufacturers like NEC, InFocus, and Mitsubishi will allow you to trade-in a projector from any manufacturer for a reduced price on one of their latest models. Learn more!

    2. Knowledge

    The people who know projectors isn’t just our slogan here at PP. We’re here to help educate you before, during and after your purchase.

    Unlike “big box” stores, we won’t leave you clueless and confused after you get your new projector in-hand. During the purchase process, you’re matched with a projector expert, who will help you identify your needs, select the right technology based on those needs and your budget, and provide technical support once your order is fulfilled.

    Knowledge is power, and the Projector People are here to help!

    3. Powers that Be

    Chase puts it well when he says, “the people who make decisions about how the Church should spend its money, don’t necessarily agree with the ideas and initiatives put forward. While a new piece of equipment may be needed, they don’t understand the need, or at least don’t want to understand the need.”
    Overcoming this issue can be easier when you are armed with knowledge. With the support of your projector expert, putting together a sound argument for why your church needs new technology (and how much it will actually cost!) can be painless.

    But don’t take my word for it… see for yourself! Contact our projector experts today to get started on the road to implementing a new technology plan in your church!

    Our Projector Experts were on the ground at the Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association (CEDIA) show last week in Indianapolis. We head to CEDIA every year. As you can probably tell, we’re total home theater geeks who have a blast playing with and learning about the latest home theater technology.

    One of the real standouts at this year’s CEDIA was the Screen Innovations booth. Here we saw the new Black Diamond Zero Edge. This bad boy was first announced in August and let us tell you, it more than lives up to its reputation.

    “This is a home run product!” said our Projector Experts.

    The Black Diamond Zero Edge is a new affordable large flat-panel alternative. The screen can be mounted, flown from the ceiling, or hung unframed. This screen is a great option for houses of worship, sports bars or restaurants. Best of all, there’s no assembly required – just unpack and hang.

    Zero Edge screens will ship in October. They will be available in 80 to 142-inch diagonal sizes. Custom sizes are also available. The Black Diamond Zero Edge screens start around $2,800, depending on size, gain and ratio.

    Projector Central reviews the Optoma HD33

    Optoma HD33 3D Projector

    The Optoma HD33 3D projector is causing quite a stir in the bargain-priced 1080p 3D market. Projector Central breaks down the features of this $1500 gem in their recent review.

    “This is the first 1080p 3D projector to break the $3000 mark, let alone the $1500 mark, and that in itself is worth getting excited about. Add to that the HD33’s solid 2D performance, great color, radio-frequency glasses, and virtual absence of crosstalk and you’ve got a projector that is a solid value at twice the price.” – Projector Central

    Available just in time for football season, we rate the Optoma HD33 as a first-string playmaker for a practice squad price!
