Scott joins Leo today to talk about ultra-short-throw (UST) projectors. It's a box that you put about six inches away from your wall, and it can project the light against the screen from a very sharp angle. The screen you use is an ambient light rejecting screen, which means you can use your project under any light conditions. Scott has an article about ambient light rejecting screens on ProjectorCentral.com right now.

HiSense came to the Eastside studios today to install a short throw projection system that puts up to 100" screen from about a foot away. Scott says it uses lasers to draw the image on the screen, and it looks really impressive, even in ambient light. The projector also comes with a sound bar and sub woofer, and the audio quality is quite good. And it should be since it costs $10,000!
With summer coming, it's a great time to think about having an outdoor cinema experience with a projector. Projectors give you that immersive, cinematic experience, but everything needs to be dark in order to enjoy it like you do at a movie. Nighttime screenings in the backyard are great for that. But indoors, that's where things get different. Ambient light can really affect projectors. Also, you need a "short throw" projector in most rooms in order to get a large enough image on the wall. A good ambient light rejecting screen is also important.
