Projector Guide : How to Choose the Best Ultra Short Throw Projector

Laser TVs, also known as Ultra-Short Throw (UST) Projectors, are on an upward trajectory to becoming the home entertainment choice of the elite group of people who adore big screen entertainment. A laser TV offers a range of benefits that are a combination of OLED TVs and traditional long-throw projectors, and as such it can be viewed as the ideal appliance to add to home theater rooms and entertainment areas. The options for laser TVs have increased as a result of consumer demand, and it’s become increasingly difficult to choose the best one for your home. Formovie THEATER was voted as the best laser TV of the year at the 2022 Laser TV Showdown, so we know a thing or two about what makes a UST projector the best. 

Why Is UST Better Than OLED and Long Throw?

In a side-by-side comparison, the UST projector is a full-package entertainment system and offers greater home theater advantages than long-throw and OLED TV displays. It’s perfect for those who seek to have an immersive and cinematic viewing experience in a relatively small room because it can be placed close to the wall or screen. It also provides eye protection from both the glare associated with traditional projectors and the blue light damage of OLED TVs.

Tips for Selecting the Best UST Projector

The perfect laser TV should possess a combination of display features, and offer a range of content and entertainment options to be considered the best.

  • Light Source

Advanced Laser Phosphor Display (ALPD®) is a type of laser display technology that offers brighter and more vivid images compared to lamps and LED projectors. It combines RGB lasers and phosphors to display a wide range of visible colors and create the best viewing experience. The latest ALPD 4.0 technology can display a color gamut of Rec.2020, which covers the largest number of visible colors.

  • High Resolution

Resolution refers to the number of pixels that are displayed on a screen, and an image with more pixels is always sharper and more clear. A 4K Ultra-High Definition (UHD) projector displays more than 8 million individual pixels to offer the greatest visual clarity.

  • Brightness and Contrast

Whether you’re hoping to enjoy your big screen indoors or outdoors, you shouldn’t have to face the limitation caused by the ambient light of the sun. A good UST projector is powerful and bright enough to accurately display the contrast of dark tones and vivid colors even during the day. It should have the capacity to display at least 2000 ANSI lumens of brightness to achieve this, according to an article in The Wired Shopper.  

  • Large Screen

Projectors are popular for their large-screen capabilities, and UST projectors are no different. The Formovie THEATER has an adjustable screen size that ranges from 80”- 150”, delivering life-sized attention to detail. 

  • Built-in Sound System

Considering the high cost of laser TVs, it’s ideal to purchase one that has all-inclusive features like a built-in sound system. Speakers should have a capacity of at least 20W  to fill a standard-sized room with a decent amount of sound.

  • On Board Entertainment

The ability to stream content directly from your TV, or connect wirelessly to other devices is a feature you should look out for when shopping for a laser TV. The Formovie THEATER has onboard Android TV 11 and HDMI ports to accommodate gaming consoles or other devices.
