XGA/WXGA Projectors

Previously thought to be reserved for businesses, more and more projectors are being acquired for personal use. They're ideal for setting up a home theatre system because, with today's high-resolution equipment, really high-resolution images may be projected onto screens or walls.

How to Pick a Projector for Your Home Theater

Manufacturers like as Benq, Epson, and Hitachi provide a diverse selection of models. Projectors, like other electrical equipment, offer a variety of characteristics, and purchasers often compare them by looking at the resolution, brightness, and aspect ratio.


A projector's brightness is measured in lumens. Basically, the more lumens a projector has, the brighter it is. A brighter projector can display more detailed images, making it suitable for exhibiting technical information, but watching TV or movies does not necessitate such a bright projector.

It's also a good idea to think about where you'll put the projector. The larger the space, the brighter the projector will need to be, as a general rule. Because a projector operates best in a darker environment, if you can regulate the degree of illumination, a projector with a lower lumens rating can be utilised. A greater lumens ratio is better for lighter spaces.


The picture quality, or detail, of the projected image improves as the resolution increases. There are a variety of resolutions to select from, including SVGA (800x600), XGA (1024x768), and widescreen WXGA (1200x800), which are the most prevalent.

Ratio of Aspects

Simply said, a projector's aspect ratio is the width of the picture divided by its height. There are two popular aspect ratios: 4:3 for corporate and school use, and 16:9 for home theatres. A third option is 16:10, which is optimised for widescreen displays.
