Pub Projector

On Saturday about 30 seconds before Wright Philips put Englands first away the projector in our local failed for about five minutes, its a massive unit about fifteen years old and a switch off and switch on sorted the problem (to the tune of 'The landlord is a *******')

Anyone now why ths happened?

The landlord has decided to replace the kit now. Does anybody have any ideas as to what to buy bearing in mind the environment it will work in and the likely level of signal 'sophistication'?

Hello Richard Boult

Fifteen years seems to be a very acceptable Service Life for any bit of kit installed in a pub – why your CRT failed is anyone’s guess.

Replacing the CRT with a current model LCD or DLP will likely produce a much brighter, sharper and more colorful image than you've been viewing for the last few years.

LCD projectors now range from a few hundred to many thousands of pounds – the lower cost models (around 1K) are ‘throw away’ devices in terms of daily usage and would probably last you 3-5 years max with a couple of lamp changes in-between (approx 200.00 GBP per lamp).

DLP is much the same though if your budget is in the 3-5K range you can go for something that is designed for 24/7 type operation that will simply require a new lamp every year and a full service at around 40,000 hours.

You may have to reposition the Projector as the throw distance of an LCD or DLP may be quite different to your installed CRT.

Have a look at the Panasonic ‘Business and Installation’ LCD and DLP range.

Probabaly overheated. If the place was full/busy, this could easily have caused the overheating. Possibly blocked vents or fans.

One projector which will definately impress your customers would be something like the Optoma EP752 or EP761.
Hope this helps.
