Incredible Ways to Mount Your Optoma Projector
Let’s take a start with typical projector mount process and then we will move to some special processes.
Setting 1: Ceilings Mount
Ceiling mount is one of the famous methods from which you can easily mount your Optoma projector.
Before we start to mount our projector with a ceiling, we must consider some points in our mind.
Place for your Optoma projector:
Before hanging your projector with ceiling make sure to decide best place for it.
Choose the place where light can’t fall on the Optoma projector screen directly, otherwise the picture quality gets lower than you expect because not every Optoma projector has the ability to fight against light, especially natural light.
After you choose the right place then choose right size for your screen
Typical projector comes with 80 to 100 inches of projected screen, if you don’t buy a projector till then our recommendation is to hang or paint 100 inches of screen.
hang or paint screen of 100 inches if you are going to use projector in room, if you are going to use it in home theatre where set are placed in row then I recommend you to hang or paint minimum 150 inches of screen.
From this, the people who are sitting at the end are able to enjoy the movie with the best experience.
Painting a screen:
If you want to paint the screen in your room or anywhere and light is falling then use the paint which rejects the light, this type of paint is easily available on hardware stores.
Same like with screen, if you are going to use it in heavy lit places then buy the screen with light rejection feature. These features help you to watch movies in the best color.
Tip: if heavy sunlight is coming on your room, then we recommend you to buy black thick curtain which block sunlight and provide you vivid viewing experience
Before we mount projector, we must know on what distance to mount Optoma projector.
Throw ratio is the thing about projector you must know because when you don’t know it, will be a big trouble for you.
In simple the throw ratio is the distance from which you have to mount your projector from screen, if you mount it far away from this ration then the picture gets blur and unseen.
To know your Optoma projector throw ratio I recommend you to first consult user manual.
If in the user manual there is just one specific figure like 2.3 or something else means you have to find a throw ratio on your own.
Before finding throw ration you must know what is the width of your projector screen
Follow these steps to find throw ratio:
To find the actual throw distance follow this simple math equation while using calculator.
Multiply your screen width with figure on user manual, from this you get the throw distance
Let’s take an example:
- Screen width: 65
- Manual figure: 1.5
- Multiply both: 65*1.5 = 97.5
97.5 inches from the screen is the throw distance.
Situation: if in the user manual there is figure like 1.5-2.1 then means you can set your projector between 97-136 inches
Now go and set your Optoma projector by using the equation above.
Setting 2: Your Placing Area
Most of the time you can’t hang your projector with ceiling because most projector are designed for table but some time table mount give you very tuff time.
When you place your projector on soft surface or placed it on cloth, they start absorbing dust and they can’t allow heat to get out from projector.
When the dust starts togethering in projector it causes many problems, for example your projector starts flickering, the image get blur, and picture quality get down.
And when heat can’t get out from projector, they heat the whole projector which affect your Optoma projector lens and many other sensitive part.
So, place your projector in a table where nothing is blocking the Optoma projector ventilation fan.
Now you find the best place where you hang your Optoma projector and also at what distance to hang it know it’s time to mount it.
