It’s back to school time here at Projector People!
Today’s lesson is on classroom projector brightness. How bright a projector do you need for your classroom? Will 3,000 lumens do the trick? What about 5,000?
It all depends on the lighting conditions.
Read on to learn how many lumens you need based on you classroom’s ambient light.
* Controlled Lighting: If you plan to use your projector in a room where there are no windows, such as a basement, or if you use your projector primarily at night, any of today’s projectors will provide a bright image.
Low ambient light: Little to no light entering room.
Some ambient light: Some additional light in room. Slightly dimmed, window blinds leaking some light.
Bright ambient light: Windows open during daylight hours, lights that cannot be dimmed like in an open office settings. Bright enough for audience note taking.
