Basics First!

Setting up a projector is not as easy as you think. The process requires you to do a little match and be aware of all the basics. You can start by asking yourself a few simple questions, such as where would you want to set up the projector? Do you have the necessary gear and accessories available at your home? Do you have an extra pair of speakers to connect to your projector?

Pick the Right Spot

If you’ve figured out the right location to set up your projector, you can be relieved knowing that half of your job is already done here. Whether you’re setting up the projector in your basement, or garden, or any corner of the house, make sure the distance of the projector machine from the screen or wall is ideal enough. Also, ensure that you don’t keep the projector too far away, as it would result in dimmer, faded images. 

Use a Screen Preferably

Use a Screen Preferably

Instead of using a wall for projection, prefer a screen instead of a better viewing experience. If you’re projecting the content on a screen, you will be able to see brighter and clearer images, compared to a wall. If you don’t have the projector screen at your home, don’t worry. You can order it online and get it delivered at your doorstep so that you don’t have to compromise on the picture quality. 

Set up Speakers

Set up Speakers

No matter how good the picture quality maybe, but without the right sound quality, it’s just meh. Believe it or not, but the built-in speakers of your projector are good for nothing. They are simply not good enough. After doing all the hard work of setting up a projector, you sure don’t want to settle with average sound quality, right? Plugin external speakers to your projector for a better sound experience. If not, then you can also go for Bluetooth speakers and keep it close by, which delivers a fairly decent sound quality.

Start your Binge Sessions Right Away

So, you’re almost set? Anything missing? Yes, a hot bowl of popcorn and some soda cans to go by. Before you fire up the projector, make a list of all the movies and shows that you can watch with your family. 

Pro Tip: Make sure that the room where you’re setting up the projector is dark enough, and doesn’t receive direct sunlight as it might mess up your viewing experience.
