The Ultimate Installation Projectors for Conference Rooms

When it comes to finding the best conference room projector for large spaces with mixed lighting conditions, you’ll need a particular type of projector.

It’s not worth looking at the lower end of the market as conference halls, large events spaces and other such settings will all require a higher specification if you want to accomplish great image quality for all your (potentially paying) event guests and important lecture attendees and delegates. Admittedly, this does come at a higher price, but this is what it takes to get the job done.

To make this all-important decision a little easier, we’ve broken our recommendations down for you based on screen size requirements and a suggested lumen output. This should give you some guidance when it comes to choosing the best conference room projector solution for you. But first, here’s a little insight into how we decided which devices would make the cut when putting together our list of the best large conference room projectors.

Major considerations

The larger your screen is, the more brightness you will need and often this comes at a much higher price point than other projectors on the market. There’s a tipping point over 5000 lumens where the mass market ends and specialist projection begins. There’s no getting around it though unfortunately, the brightness you will need to display an image at full quality across a larger screen space so your large audience can see it clearly requires you to have a high lumens output.

For any large conference room, we’re recommending a lumens output of at least 8,000. Here’s a rough breakdown of the lumens you’ll need for different sized screens:

  • 4m wide screen = 8,000 Lumens
  • 5m wide screen = 8,000 to 10,000 Lumens
  • 6m wide screen = 12,000 to 16,000 Lumens
  • 7m wide screen = 16,000 to 20,000 Lumens

Also, when you’re investing your cash in one of the brightest models on the market, we’d say that it pretty much going to has to be a laser projector in 2019.

You’ll find it hard to get a projector that meets your demands that uses lamp technology, but even if you can, having a laser projector means you’ll have fewer maintenance issues and a longer life-span.

Finally, all our choices include WUXGA resolution. If you’re new to the projector game, this basically means you’ll be able to clearly see yopur content. Resolution is massively important at this scale, as each pixel will be larger on the screen.

At 1920×1200 resolution, the added pixels of all the projectors in our list give the projected image slightly more height than a standard 16×9 display (think widescreen tv’s). This is great for a number of different business or conference purposes.
