Projector Types

The are two basic types of projectors - digital light projectors and liquid crystal display projectors. An LCD projector sends light through a prism. A DLP projector works with micro mirrors.

A DLP device offers a wider color spectrum with more stable images at a higher contrast. It's possible to project a 3D image with DLP projectors. LCD projectors require more maintenance than DLPs. They may not project fast moving images smoothly. A LCD image may show black spots when pixels burn out. LCDs can project brighter images and work better in brightly lit rooms or outside.
