Questions to think about before you book:

  • What lumens do you need? (Lumens is the brightness of the projector)
  • What resolution do you need? (Resolution is the number of pixels at which the display device does not have to expand or compress the input signal)
  • What type: install, desktop or portable? (Install projectors tend to be larger and heavier, desktop ones are small and lighter and portable are somewhere in between!)

When you’re looking to hire a projector for a presentation or party, there are a number of factors you need to consider. Use the following checklist to help you plan your projector hire:

How many people need to see the screen?
A 2,200 lumens projector will usually be sufficient for a smaller meeting – up to 20 people. A brighter projector will be needed for rooms with more natural light, bigger screens and larger audiences – some projectors go up to over 20,000 lumens but you shouldn’t need these for a simple presentation! Call us for advice on which projector will suit you best.

Can everyone see the screen?
Depending on how many people are attending your meeting, some may be situated some way away from the screen. If you have a lot of text in your presentation, then some may not be able to read it clearly. There are two solutions to this: repeater screens or larger screen/projector. Repeater screens are often plasma or LCD screens positioned further down the room that show the same image as the main screen. Quite often in larger meetings there may be pillars or obstructions that mean some people may not be able to see the whole screen. For these rooms repeater screens are the best option.

If it is just a matter of distance from the screen, then increasing the screen size will help as the text will be larger and hence easier to read. The larger the screen, then generally you should increase the brightness of the projector, as light is diffused more over a larger area. Room ceiling heights may dictate that a larger screen is not possible, so repeater screens are a good fallback.

Do you need a set?
Often a screen by itself can look bare. There are different ways to dress up a simple screen but the most common are using felt covered flat panels, or using drapes. These look like heavy ‘curtains’ that are framed around the screen to tidy it up. Flats come in a myriad of shapes and sizes, but the standard type is usually 8′ x 4′. This can be covered in any colour felt (or other material), and any number of these can be added together to make a seamless wall. For more information on set design please call us and we can talk you through it.

Do you need a PA system?
Most projectors come with a small speaker that’s useless for anything practical. There’s nothing worse than being unable to make yourself heard! If you’ve got sound with your presentation or video, make sure you hire a separate PA system to let people hear it. Quite often Powerpoint presentations include a music track or “wake up call” which is completely wasted if it’s coming out of a tiny speaker. Give your audience the full impact! Give us a call for more advice.

“I started working with Status AV because a client wanted to use local suppliers. I now recommend them to all my clients. Every event I do with them is spot on. They really understand corporate events and the importance of a sexy set and a slickly run show. The team are all very helpful, adaptable and amenable. I know my clients are in safe hands when we work with Status AV. They spent time understanding the event and coming up with creative solutions to challenging venues, briefs or budgets. I know I am going to have a great day at work when working with Status AV and that my clients will too.”

“The show went really went thank you. The sound shower was just what we were after and I would recommend you sell out the motion speaker, as it was an added interest to the guests!”

Production Manager


“Status AV must be commended for the way they managed our charity event on the 18th May. With over 1,000 people due to be under canvas for a charity auction and party, all was going well until the marquee turned out to be 10 feet narrower than expected. With less than 5 days to the event, the Status AV team had to completely re-design the AV setup and supply an entirely different array of equipment to make the event work. On the night, everything went extremely well and I have no hesitation to recommending them to you. ”

“We used three of the 20” domes to create an isolated sound field in front of a screen within an ambient sound field. The units were extremely effective and provided exactly the effect we were looking for.”
