How to Choose the Best Projector for Video Games

How to Choose the Best Projector for Video Games

In the gaming industry, there are different ways of rendering the graphics. You may want to use a monitor in your gaming business or you go for a projector. Both options have their own advantages as well as disadvantages. However, you will realize that the projector option is going to outweigh the monitor. For instance, a gaming projector works best if you want your users to have a better image view in a size larger than the monitors you can get in the market.

In some other scenarios, a projection works seamlessly in that you do not have to include too many wired connectivity cables. There are other reasons why you might want to employ the power of a gaming projector as opposed to a gaming monitor. Some of the reasons may be up to a personal level.

All in all, you will want to know how you can get the right projector for your business so that you can easily select your preferred gaming projector the next time you go shopping for one.

What You Should Look Out for when Buying a Gaming Projector:

1. Color and White Brightness

The brightness of a projector is measured in lumens. The greater the brightness, the better the view.

When you want your computer gaming users to experience the best out of the games, you need to get a good projector that helps them to see the image clearly even when the conditions are not the best.

2. The Contrast Ratio

When you are playing computer games on your projector, you need to identify the distinct objects in the game. Most of them can be identified by the color texture. For a better experience, you need to have a gaming projector that can easily do the task.

To measure this attribute, you take the ratio between the brightest white against the darkest black display color of the projector. The value you get gives you the contrast ratio.

This translates that for the best exposure, you need to get a projector with a high contrast ratio to easily differentiate the colors.

3. Projector Resolution

When you want to display high-quality graphics, text, or HD video, you need a projector with a high resolution. The resolution is actually the number of dots that align on the display. This value is usually given in a combination of the width by the height of the display.

For instance, a 1260×728 tells you that there are 1260 dots horizontally and 728 in the vertical display. The resolution determines the quality of the image the gaming projector renders. It also determines the aspect ratio of the video display you will enjoy. On the top of the projector box, you will find a universal barcode from which you can track the product value, construction date, and other important material data.

Apart from the display features, you might also be interested in finding out how you can get the right projector for your business in terms of technology and design. In most cases, these features rely on the way you have arranged your room among other environmental aspects. Here are a few things you might want to know:

  • The Display Technology: There are two types. They include a 1-chip DLP display and a 3-chip LCD display.
  • Connectivity: You may want to buy a wired projector or a wireless one for your gaming business. It all depends on your preferences. The wired connectivity can further be subcategorized depending on the connectivity port type. You can determine what will work for you with the computers you are going to use for the projection.
  • The Throw distance: This is a design feature that determines the distance between your projector and the wall for the best image display according to your desired size. For this, you need to consider your room size and setting.

8 Replacements for Google Notebook

8 Replacements for Google Notebook

Exploring alternatives to Google Notebook? There are more than a few ‘notebooks’ available online these days, although choosing the right one will likely depend on just what you use Google Notebook for.

  1. Zoho Notebook
    If you want to stick with something as close to Google Notebook as possible, Zoho Notebook may just be your best bet. The user interface has some significant changes, but in general, Zoho Notebook has pretty similar features. There is even a Firefox plugin that allows you to highlight content and drop it into your Notebook. You can go a bit further, though, dropping in any spreadsheets or documents you have in Zoho, as well as some applications and all websites — to the point that you can control a desktop remotely if you pare it with something like Zoho Meeting.
  2. Evernote
    The features that Evernote brings to the table are pretty great. In addition to allowing you to capture parts of a website, Evernote has a desktop search tool mobil versions (iPhone and Windows Mobile). It even has an API, if you’ve got any features in mind not currently available. Evernote offers 40 MB for free accounts — if you’ll need more, the premium version is priced at $5 per month or $45 per year. Encryption, size and whether you’ll see ads seem to be the main differences between the free and premium versions.
  3. Net Notes
    If the major allure for Google Notebooks lays in the Firefox extension, Net Notes might be a good alternative. It’s a Firefox extension that allows you to save notes on websites in your bookmarks. You can toggle the Net Notes sidebar and access your notes as you browse. You can also tag websites. Net Notes works with Mozilla Weave if you need to access your notes from multiple computers.
  4. i-Lighter
    You can highlight and save information from any website while you’re browsing with i-Lighter. You can also add notes to your i-Lighted information, as well as email it or send the information to be posted to your blog or Twitter account. Your notes are saved in a notebook on your computer — but they’re also synchronized to the iLighter website. You can log in to the site from any computer.
  5. Clipmarks
    For those browsers interested in sharing what they find with others, Clipmarks provides a tool to select clips of text, images and video and share them with friends. You can easily syndicate your finds to a whole list of sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Digg. You can also easily review your past clips and use them as references through Clipmarks’ website.
  6. UberNote
    If you can think of a way to send notes to UberNote, it can handle it. You can clip material while browsing, email, IM, text message or even visit the UberNote sites to add notes to the information you have saved. You can organize your notes, tag them and even add checkboxes if you want to turn a note into some sort of task list. You can drag and drop information between notes in order to manage them.
  7. iLeonardo
    iLeonardo treats research as a social concern. You can create a notebook on iLeonardo on a particular topic, collecting information online. You can also access other people’s notebooks. It may not necessarily take the place of Google Notebook — I’m pretty sure my notes on some subjects are cryptic — but it’s a pretty cool tool. You can keep notebooks private if you like the interface but don’t want to share a particular project. iLeonardo does allow you to follow fellow notetakers and receive the information they find on a particular topic.
  8. Zotero
    Another Firefox extension, Zotero started life as a citation management tool targeted towards academic researchers. However, it offers notetaking tools, as well as a way to save files to your notebook. If you do a lot of writing in Microsoft Word or Open Office, Zotero might be the tool for you — it’s integrated with both word processing software to allow you to easily move your notes over, as well as several blogging options. Zotero’s interface is also available in more than 30 languages.

I’ve been relying on Google Notebook as a catch-all for blog post ideas — being able to just highlight information and save it is a great tool for a blogger.

In replacing it, though, I’m starting to lean towards Evernote. I’ve found it handles pretty much everything I want, especially with the voice recording feature. I’m planning to keep trying things out for a while yet — I’m sticking with Google Notebook until the Firefox extension quits working — and if you have any recommendations that I missed when I put together this list, I’d love to hear them — just leave a comment!
