So you've decided to get an LFC but you aren't sure which projector to buy...
Here are some helpful resources to aid in your search.
Keep in mind, you can use LFC with most normal or short-throw projectors but the projector you choose will be dependent on your use case and how large of the image you're looking to project and in what lighting conditions.
As you are shopping around, make sure the projector you plan on using with it is within the supported specs and throw ratio. You'll also want to make sure your computer or laptop meets our minimum requirements for running Lightform Creator.
The LFC supports projectors that meet the following criteria:
- HDMI input
- Throw Ratio: 0.5 – 2.0
- Any brightness (depending on ambient light)
- Any lamp type (e.g., LED, Laser, bulb)
We recommend using projector central's search feature in combination with their projector calculator to do this. For instance, you can view projectors by supported throw ratio by doing a search that meets the LFC's throw ratio requirements like this one (min/max throw ratio = 0.5-2.0). Using this search feature (along with the projector calculator) will help you narrow in on one that is supported and fits your use case and budget. The projector calculator can calculate the image size for any projector's distance. You can then adjust the sliders to see how far you'd need to be to project on which sized area.
You can read more about compatibility here: Projector Compatibility and check out this article for more information on understanding projector throw ratios.
To see some of the projectors we've used, we recommend looking at our project examples on Lightform.com.
