Home projectors and education projectors are very popular in our lives, but do you know the difference between them? Knowing the difference between the two can help us better choose projectors. Today I will introduce the difference between a home projector and an education projector.

1. Different types of projectors have different focuses

At present, there are mainly two types of projectors, including smart projectors and traditional projectors.

(1) Generally speaking, smart projectors are more suitable for home use. Smart projectors have built-in third-party apps and have functions such as smart systems. Smart projectors are even easy to carry and are more suitable for home use. They focus more on resolution and have relatively low performance requirements for the projector.

(2) So the scene of education projector is actually more suitable for choosing traditional projector brand manufacturers. Based on the usage scenarios, the positions are basically fixed and the cables are laid out in advance. Moreover, traditional projectors are basically high-brightness, high-heat dissipation, and richer interfaces, so they are suitable for the high requirements of education projectors.

2. Different uses of the two kinds of projectors

The basic purpose of home projectors is to watch movies and dramas at home, while the biggest use of education projectors is to show students the courseware. The different uses of the two determine the direction of the product.

3. Different requirements for parameters of the two kinds of projectors:

There are mainly two parameters. One is lumens (affecting brightness), and the other is contrast (affecting viewing font effects).

(1) Cheap home projectors are basically selected according to the environment, light and budget requirements of their homes. Its requirements for lumens (brightness) are relatively low, generally within 1500 ANSI lumens, and more than 2000 ANSI lumens in the daytime. For contrast, this is basically based on your own needs.

(2) If it is an education projector, the requirements for lumen (brightness) contrast will be relatively higher. After all, the use scenes are basically daytime, and the screens are all PPT courseware. Lumen represents brightness. High lumens allows students to watch well during the day. It is recommended to be above 3000 ANSI. The other is contrast. Only with high contrast can students see the edges of the fonts better. Otherwise, if the contrast is low, students can't see the fonts on the projector, which will affect the listening effect.
