Screen size for your house of worship projector?

This is one of the main factors, how big do you need the projector screen to be? It is best not to guess, so use a tape measure and get the accurate dimensions. So that the house of worship projector can impress the people of the community.


Than next factor is to discover how the far you want the projected image, as a golden rule, double the projector screen is an excellent distance, from the projector to the screen. So if the screen is 10 feet wide, the projector should be around 20 feet away from the screen. This will certainly depend on any space limitations in your house of worship.

Most houses of worship are painted white, so the best brightness is a unit with 5,000 lumen. This will provide a crystal clear projected image for congregations up to 150 seated individuals.
