Top 5 Essential Accessories For Your Home Projection Experience

Projectors have become an important part of modern homes and offices. Newer models of projectors have extensive range, with more connection settings and ports that enhance the user experience with different options to play and connect your devices. With the increase in projector’s capability, there is also an increase in accessories available for different projectors. There are a few essential accessories that help to improve the image quality while others enhance the viewers’ experience. Some projector accessories include tripods, carrying case, adapters, HDMI cables, etc…

  • Projector Screen: The most important accessory to have with your projector is a good projector screen since it allows for a steady, clear image. The size and quality of the screen depends on the type of projector that you have. Most modern projectors can handle projection up to about 200 inches. It is also important to know how far to position your projector screen based on the projector’s throw ratio.  For rooms that have high ambient light, a light-rejecting projector screen is a must unless you can shut out the light completely.
  • External Speakers: Even though projectors have improved over the years, some still don’t come with built in speakers or come with very low quality speakers. Having one speaker will be enough to improve the sound quality, enough to enhance the quality of your viewing experience. 
  • Streaming Devices: Many projectors have video input through HDMI, which allows for the use of streaming devices such as Roku, Amazon Fire Stick, and Chromecast. These devices provide more options to watch your favorite shows and movies without the need to stream videos from your laptop or phone directly to the projector. 
  • Display Adapters: If the connector on your computer or smartphone is different from those on the projector, then you will need to include an adapter in your projector accessories list. The most popular display connectors are Apple Lightning to Digital AV Adapter, USB-C to HDMI adapter, and Mini HDMI to HDMI. It is important to get the right adapter accessories as you will encounter display errors when using incorrect adapters for iPhone or Samsung smartphones.
  • Carrying case or mounting brackets: The last accessories you should have with your projectors are the mounting brackets and carrying case. If you have a portable pico projector, you can get a carrying case that allows you to carry the projector wherever you go. A mounting bracket is nice to mount the projector into a fixed position.

Projectors Bring Mickey Mouse To Life!

The entertainment company known as Disney opened a new ride called “Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway”. Disney’s newest ride was brought to life with the help of Panasonic’s award-winning 4k laser projectors! This Disney and Panasonic collaboration is currently featured at Walt Disney World but will soon make its way to Anaheim’s Disneyland in 2022. Senior Vice President of Imaging at Panasonic says ” Not only do our 4K laser projectors precisely and accurately reconstruct the specific color range of the actual Mickey Mouse cartoons, but they also enable visitors to become immersed in a world where the physical environment and visual environment are seamlessly blended together. This required flexible, reliable and customizable projection technology to meet the complexity of the attraction configuration.”

This isn’t the first time Disney and Panasonic have joined forces utilizing projectors. Panasonic showcased 80 4k DLP- based laser projectors in Disney’s “Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance” Ride. These standard projectors, not to be confused with the pico and micro projectors in the consumer market, utilize their bright picture resolution to bring the Star Destroyer and other visual effects and battles to life!

Mini Projector For Your Glasses!

Tethered and standalone SmartGlasses with ColorChip Miniature RGB Projector (PRNewsfoto/ColorChip Ltd.)

ColorChip, a photonic integrated technology company, has recently released a new compact smart lens system for AR/VR smart glasses that utilize Pico Projectors. The new lens platform is in preparation for the expected growth in the AR/VR market, particularly if Apple releases their version of SmartGlasses at the end of the year.


This RGB Mini Projector gives the smart glasses lens a highly efficient display with low power consumption. The way the ColorChip embeds the RGB beam combiner ( an arrangement of splitters and mirrors to disperse and combine light) into the glass, eliminates the need for expensive housing for the projector is no longer necessary. The projection unit thus fits nicely on the arm of the glasses.

A mini projector based system this advanced is remarkable. This Smart Lens platform made by ColorChip is pivotal in the advancement of projector technology. The ability to make a small unit that has low power consumption and is able to have an efficient display will hopefully influence big companies in the micro and micro projectors market to make smaller more compact projectors.

Walmart Uses LED Projectors For Ads

The grocery mega-giant known as Walmart has begun using LED mini projectors to test floor ads in order to boost sales. These mini projectors are a great way to draw attention to special price rollbacks, specifically on toys. 75% of shoppers said that the LED projected ads were more effective than traditional signage ads. The move to use LED projectors, both standard and pico, is a huge move for the company. Walmart is hoping that this is the most efficient way to cover advertising real estate of its 5,000 stores that each has an average of 150,000 square footage. Stefanie Jay, vice president of the Walmart Media Group, describes the need for this type of advertising by releasing this statement, “With 90% of America shopping at Walmart every year and nearly 160 million visitors to our stores and websites every week, Walmart Media Group enables brands to reach more customers at scale and measure advertising effectiveness across the entire shopping journey”.

This much real estate needs multiple projectors not only portable in size but also equipped with a brightness that can project a high-quality image. Thankfully companies like OptomaEpson, Sony, LG, and AAXA have made great progress in lumen outputs for their LED pico projectors. The mini projector market is the perfect solution to cover all this floor real estate. Their compact size, affordability, and high lumen output make them a great asset for this type of advertising.
