Outdoor Projector (Battery) and Screen

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

I am hoping for some good advice for an outdoor projector for use with the Australian Summer looming!

 

I would prefer a battery powered unit to save running a cable every time I use it. Also want something that can easily be used with Netflix and similar, either with apps on the unit itself or streaming via an iPhone / iPad.

 

Options seem limited in Australia. The best generally on sale here seems to be the Nebula Capsule but my research found the Nebula Mars 2 which does seem a much better product though only available here on import.

 

Then there is the Philips PicoPix Max being crowd funded:

That looks great but I am concerned about no product reviews being available.

 

Has anyone gone with this or have any thoughts I should consider.

 

Also, what do I need to look for in an outdoor screen. I really want something quick and easy to put up.

 

Thanks so much

I think most of the folk here are running dedicated home theatre projectors and probably don't have much knowledge or experience with what you're describing.

I'd never even heard of a battery powered projector. I'm dubious as to how well one would perform in a non-light controlled environment - even at night!

 

Good luck!

 

P.S. Philips are crowd-funding, now?!

      Hi, New member to Stereo.net.au and loving it,
       
      I need some help/advice please. I am building a new house (4 months) and Im going a dedicated home theatre room 7.3m x 4.2m. Ive decided to go a AT screen either Woven or Perforated as i want as big as i can fit comfortably in that room, my concern is the brightness, Most i can find have gains of around .8 to .95    

      The projector is a Sony 570es (695es) native 4k with 1800lumens, My concern is the size of the screen being 140inch, the throw of around 5.5 - 6m and AT screen wont get very bright. As i would like to hit close to HDR colours/brightness if possible.
       
      If anyone has any recommendations i can consider, or better yet has a set up similar that can share experience with.
       
      Appreciate your time.
