I belong to a film society that has been given the opportunity to bid for new digital equipment using lottery funding. We currently have an antiquated "business projector" and a first generation DVD Player. Ive suggested we bid for funding for a new projector and DVD player. The only projectors I know about are the current entry level projectors eg Z1 and 2 and panny ae series. We intend to bid for between £1500 to £2000 and contribute up to a £1000 ourselves for the projector and up to £200 for a DVD player. So the parameters are: Must be LCD (cant risk DLP rainbows affecting anyone) Must project a goodimage to 12 foot width Throw distance isnt an issue Must be resilient to constant movement (we dont owna premisis and intend to exploit our mobility by starting a newsociety nearby) Budget between £2000 and £3000 Im guessing we need high lumens and high contrast ratio, but would appreciate any advice or experience from anyone whose used projectors for public viewing. Would alse be open to DVD player suggestions? Am assuming that a minimum both would have componant. and hopefully prog scan with given budget. Once again any advice would be gratefully recieved if there is something else I havent thought of.
