Outdoor entertainment.


Like flat screen TV’s, a projector are high in demand and coming down in price as new technology is launched, making outdoor entertainment at home or in the community a real possibility.

Projectors can be set up for the local home owners association and show a family movie over a weekend, when everyone can get together and share a meal. This is an ideal way to meet your neighbors and to catch up with people you may not have seen over the past few months, due to work schedules.

People are even deploying OHP’s in their backyard, so they can be entertained while they chill out in the Jacuzzi, just remember the projector needs protecting from the weather and potential theft.

There are three solutions open to people who want to put projectors outdoors, the first is buy a commercially available outdoor units, but the problem is there is nothing on the market as yet. The next option is to bring the unit in every time you have finished watching whatever the device is showing, or lastly, or use an outdoor protective housing for the device, that will provide the essential protection from the weather and theft all in one unit.

Then you are free to set the projector up once and leave it outdoors all year, now does that sound like a plan? No matter what you choose, consider your options well, as newer projectors will be launched in the next 6 months.

No matter if you are using them for profit or fun, projectors are flexible.
