Aberdeen Projector Hire specialise in LCD professional
video projector hire for use in a wide range of presentational applications.
Our video / data projectors will accept a wide range of input sources
and are easy to use. A modern electronic projector such as the workhorse
Mitsubishi SL4SU will accept composite video, S-Video, or a 15pin d-sub
(a standard computer vga type cable) input connectors and can cope with
PAL, SECAM or NTSC video, or VGA, SVGA, XGA or SXGA computer inputs
which means that they will work with just about any input source that
you can throw at them. With an ANSI Lumens (light output / brightness)
of 1700, we have found that this projector produces a brighter image
than higher rated projectors from less well known manufacturers. The
native resolution of this unit is SVGA which is comparabale to a fairly
standard PC monitor setting at 800 x 600 pixels. In effect, this projector
is suitable for use in boardroom size, lights-on presentations of up
to about 30 people. Weighing in at just 2.7 kg, with dimensions of 274mm
x 69mm x 260mm it packs a lot of power into a very compact and mobile
case. As with most projectors, ideal placement is about twice as far
back from the screen as the the image is wide (ie. 12' back for a 6'
wide image), with the bottom of the projector & screen in line.
The image can be adjusted by means of a 1.2:1 zoom lens, and there is
a digital keystone facility to adjust for non-vertical alignment. It
is worth noting that this projector, like most, is not well equipped
in the speaker department, with a mono 2 watt on board speaker (comparable
to a laptop speaker) which we would generally not recommend using -
For most applications a set of powered PC speakers are the most cost
effective option, but separate sound systems can be used if the situation
demands it. Practical applications for projectors such as these are
for use with laptop / notebook computers (PC or Mac) running any program
such as Microsoft Powerpoint, Macromedia Flash, Macromedia Director,
etc. They are regularly used with a DVD player, often running an autoplay,
looping DVD, or film. They can similarly be connected to VHS or SVHS
video cassette players, X-Box or Sony PS2 games consoles.
