Brightest projector recommendation?


Standard Member
Do you have any recommendations for projectors, short throw or normal throw, that delivers the best possible brightness/contrast in very high ambient light environment?

We need a projector for sport bar for European Football championship so full HD is probably enough. Unless there is any 4K streaming platform which can be accessed from Europe (Croatia). As the games will be held mostly during the day and sport bar is full in glass (almost like outdoors), we need some extremely good projector to combine it with amazing ALR screens from We currently have Long Throw 114' ALR screen from sunscreen which is amazing but we've seen that for extreme ambient light, UST ALR screen with UST projector might fight ambient light much better. In case we find better UST projector, we will upgrade to UST ALR screen.

Our projector budget is in a range of 3,000 EUR and from reviews I managed to find, Epson LS100 is our current lead option. However this is 3Y old model and we would prefer something newer, as probably there are already better, brighter models. Also, for 3,000 EUR we hope to get extreme brightness but also 4K.

Attached photos are how it currently looks like with old Epson 9200W which delivers great picture with low ambient light. Unfortunately I don't have daytime photos, but we need something extremely bright, much brighter than old Epson 9200W (old lamp, home cinema projector) as ambient light is extreme.

Thank you so much for any recommendation or tip!
