It’s Game Day: Go Big and Stay Home this Football Season

Hey. Do you love football? I mean really love football? If you’re anything like me you live for Sundays. You get pumped up to go to the game. You love the roar of the crowd. The bone crushing hits of the defense. The precision of a quarter back’s game winning pass.

You love football. Down to your core. It’s in your soul.

But do you also suffer from the game day blues? Does your enthusiasm wane as you battle through traffic and spend an eternity trying to find stadium parking? Does your frustration overtake you as you wait in line for overpriced, mediocre beer and snacks? Do your buddies and significant other run in terror, as you turn from football fanatic into just plain fanatical?

Well, why not bring the game home to you?

Why not avoid the lines and traffic and obnoxious Eagles fans (just kidding, Philly) and post up at home with a larger than life set-up? Have the beer of your choosing and all the snacks that you want. Without traffic. And crowded parking lots. And the frustration that overshadows your pure passion for the game.

Don’t hail Mary through another football season when you can drive for a touchdown. Own your block. Experience the bone crushing hits and game winning passes on a huge video screen in a HD, surround sound setting also known as the sanctuary of your home! Invite the neighbors over and make them stand in line for beer, because you’re the one with a big screen home theater.

Go big and stay home is our motto at Projector People. And we have a game plan because we’re football fans too. Just give us a call. We can make fun of the Eagles together.

iPhone and iPad projector FAQ

Got questions about iPad and iPhone projectors? We have answers. Here are a few of our most frequently asked questions about iPad and iPhone projection:

how to connect your iPad or iPhone to your projector

How do I connect my iPad or iPhone to my projector?

An iPad or iPhone easily connects to your projector with a $29 VGA adapter, available from the Apple store. Simply plug it into the projector’s included VGA cable and you’re ready to go. The iPhone or iPad works like any other VGA peripheral.

What about wireless iPad and iPhone projection?

Currently Casio, Epson and Panasonic have free apps that allow you to project wirelessly from your iPad or iPhone over a wireless internet connection. For an up-to-the-second update on which brands have apps, call us at 1-888-248-0675.

Because the projector apps transmit content through the device’s wireless connection, you won’t be able to connect wirelessly to a projector AND the internet unless your phone or tablet is 3G-enabled. See our most popular wireless iPad and iPhone projectors »

Will the image on my projector look as good as the image on my iPad or iPhone?

Most content can be sent from your iPhone or iPad to your projector without a problem. But remember, some apps were designed exclusively for a five-inch screen and may look wonky when stretched to 10 times their original size. Also, cameras, smartphones and tablets have different methods of compressing and storing photos. This process can alter the dimensions of your pictures, causing them to look slightly different on the big screen.

For us, CES is a time to connect with representatives of the brands we sell on ProjectorPeople.com. We have the opportunity to learn about upcoming releases and new features. We also get to pass on valuable feedback from you, our customers and fellow projector fans, about changes you’d like to see in future products. Like us, our manufacturers highly value your feedback.

We were able to shoot a few videos during our time in Vegas. See below for updates from Vivitek, Optoma and InFocus. Stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter profiles for continued information on new releases, projector news and price drops.
