Home cinema entertainment requires a high performance projector to make the most of the space.

This is according to a recent article from Electronichouse.com, which urged people to look into projectors rather than flat screen televisions.

Indeed, the market is full of smaller projectors for business or classroom use. It even features a range of pico projectors that can be carried in a pocket for use on the move. But the DLP, LCoS and LCD projectors in between are great for home cinema use and should not be forgotten.

When looking at which to purchase, consider the ambient light of the room in which the projector will be used. Some are designed for rooms in which there will inevitably be some light, while others will only show a clear picture in complete darkness.

It is also worth considering whether or not professional installation is required or if the projector is simple enough to set up yourself. The publication also urged people to remember to take into account the sound system as this will also require a fair amount of attention when you come to installing your home cinema system.

Another point to bear in mind is the fan noise from a projector, as this could have an impact on the viewing experience if the projector is specifically for watching films.
