Projectors By Lumens
Projector lumens are a measure of the brightness of a projector. The more lumens a projector has, the brighter the image will be. However, it's important to note that lumens are not the only factor that determines image brightness. Other factors, such as the image size and the ambient light in the room, also play a role.

Frequently Asked Questions
All you need to know about lumens and projector brightness
What are lumens?
Projector lumens are a measure of the brightness of a projector. They are measured in ANSI lumens, which is a standard unit of measurement for projector brightness. The more lumens a projector has, the brighter the image will be.
Are lumens an important projector feature?
When choosing a projector, it is important to consider the amount of lumens you need. If you are going to be using the projector in a dark room, you will need a projector with fewer lumens. However, if you are going to be using the projector in a well-lit room, you will need a projector with more lumens.
Is there a general rule of thumb for projector lumens?
There are number of factors in addition to lumens to take into consideration when choosing the best projector for your needs. However, based on a 3mtr wide, 16:9 aspect ratio image, assuming you have no ambient light directly hitting your projector screen, then you can use the following room conditions as a guide:
Dark Room : 1500 – 2500 lumens
Dimly lit room : 2500 – 3500 lumens
Well lit room : 3500 – 5000 lumens
Brightly lit room – 5000 lumens and above
