How Smart Projectors Enhance The 3D Movie Experience

You can enjoy your favorite 3D movies in a truly immersive viewing atmosphere with either a home or outdoor projector due to their outstanding features. Some of these features include: 

MEMC Technology

With motion compensation technology (MEMC) fitted in some smart projectors, 3D movies are enjoyed as it ensures that fast-paced action movie scenes are displayed smoothly and clearly. So you can watch action 3D movies like Avatar and Dredd without any image trailing, allowing you to follow every scene regardless of speed.

High-Quality Sound

A 3D movie-watching experience is usually great with good sound, and some smart projectors come with built-in speakers that produce high-fidelity sound to complement the stylish visuals of movies like Up and Alice in Wonderland

Large Screen

Smart projectors heighten the movie experience with 3D movies with their large screen between 60"-200", which supports viewing from a comfortable distance while keeping you immersed with every action and scene. 

Resolution/Brightness 

Smart projectors come with 1080p/4K resolution, which offers crystal clear visual imagery allowing you to make out the details of every scene of your favorite 3D movie. They also come with about 900-2400 ANSI lumens, which provide bright displays for camping or backyard use both in the day and at night. 

Built-in Entertainment

Finally, some smart projectors support Android TV, which gives them access to numerous apps via Google Play like Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+, and HBO Max for unlimited indoor and outdoor entertainment. They also have multiple connectivity options like HDMI, USB, LAN, and Audio to connect laptops, gaming consoles, TV sticks, hard drives, laptops, and headphones.
