How to choose the best projector for your home cinema

22 Jan,2024

Creating a home cinema is an exciting prospect. Picture yourself and your friends relaxing to fantastic flicks without the expense of a trip to the movies.

Amidst the comfiest chairs and life-size cut-outs of Hollywood stars, one crucial element during the creation stage of your home cinema is the projector. After all, you wouldn't be happy if you went to the movies and were presented with poor quality visuals, so don't settle for it at home.

So, here's our guide to choosing the best projector for your home cinema.


The brightness of a projector is measured in lumens. Consider the ambient light conditions in your home cinema room. If it's a dedicated, light-controlled space, a projector with lower lumens may suffice. However, for rooms with more ambient light, a higher lumen count is crucial to maintaining a vibrant and clear image.


The resolution of a projector determines the clarity and sharpness of the image. Common resolutions include HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) and 4K (3840 x 2160 pixels). For a future-proof home cinema setup, you should consider investing in a 4K projector for incredible detail and a more immersive viewing experience.

Easy Set-up:

After bringing your brand-new projector home, the last thing you want is a complex setup process. With Epson’s EH-TW6250, a simple welcome guide takes you through the process, showing you how to stream content from devices ranging from phones to laptops to HDMI ports. After that, you just need to choose that classic film, and enjoy!

Throw Distance and Screen Size:

Calculate the distance between the projector and the screen (throw distance) and the desired screen size. Different projectors have different throw ratios, so ensure that the projector you choose can meet your spatial requirements for optimal image size and clarity.

Projection Technology:

Projectors use various technologies, with one of the most prevalent being 3LCD. This technology offers advantages such as vibrant colors and excellent motion handling. It's worth noting that all Epson projectors are equipped with 3LCD technology. This ensures that, regardless of the specific model you choose, you'll experience the best color brightness possible. Take a moment to explore the features of 3LCD technology to ensure it aligns with your preferences for an optimal viewing experience.


Ensure that the projector has the necessary ports for your devices. HDMI ports are standard, but consider additional ports for gaming consoles, streaming devices, and audio equipment. Wireless connectivity options can also enhance convenience.

The Epson EH-TW6250 stands out as a smart projector, granting you direct access to your favorite apps without the need for an external device. Additionally, with built-in Chromecast, you can effortlessly stream content from your phone, or utilize the HDMI port to connect to various devices such as laptops.

Noise Level:

Look out for projectors that come with a variety of ways for how you can enjoy the audio side of your movie experience. Popular options include built-in speakers, audio ports that allow you to branch out to a trusted external speaker, or a headphone jack if you need to keep the noise levels down.
