HomeEntertainmentHome Entertainment or Outdoor Advertising? Misty Jhones January 5, 2016 Entertainment, Tech Many people use projectors for advertising and home cinemas; however they need to protect the hardware from the extreme weather, the only solution is a projector enclosure. Technology changes as we all know Some 2 years ago, TV’s in the backyard were all the rage, now these are seen in almost every backyard and garden, why? Because people wanted to appreciate the time with their family and friends, now 2 years on, the price of high end projectors has fallen and puts them in the reach of most households. Now the restriction of screen size has been lifted and no longer will you have to group around the small TV screen to see your favourite programs or film. Home Entertainment use for Projectors As you can imagine, in the backyard while you are chilling out in your hot tub, you can watch your favourite movie with your loved ones around you. You can through a BBQ party, watching your favourite football game and discussing how your team was so successful after analysing their tactics. Outdoor Advertising using Projectors Now this is a new concept and the business owners utilising this tactic are coining the money in! They use a projector to display future events at the bar on the side of the building from within the car lot, so passing traffic can see the ad and stop by to pre pay a ticket for the event. This is a win-win for the bar owner as rarely do they have any competition, as other bar owners think it’s too expensive when it really is not! So what’s needed for either of these Solutions?
