Make The Holidays More Memorable
With A Smart Projector
By XGIMI Tech - 2022-03
The holidays bring a different kind of air— happy people giving gifts to one another, music that puts everyone in a great mood, great food (lots of it). Old friends come together with their families to spend some time with one another. The older people catch up in the living room, while the kids are having fun playing outside in the snow. Does this sound familiar?
Festive periods with family and friends can go beyond the regular eating, drinking, and enjoying each other's company. People often come up with great ideas for Christmas activities that add spice to the holiday and leave wonderful memories. Hiking, hosting parties, baking holiday cookies, and setting up a home theater for movies are some of the numerous activity ideas that can make the Holidays more exciting.
For movie nights at home during the holidays with friends and family or a karaoke night, smart projectors can bring the magic to the party, creating even more fun for everyone. Watching a holiday-themed movie with a device whose features can deliver a cinema-grade viewing experience feels good, even to write about. The Holidays can be a lot more fun with smart projectors around, and there are several other Christmas activities that are equally fun-filled.
Party Activities That Are Fun For Everyone During The Holidays
Recreational or party activities during the holidays abound, spinning around different interests, skill sets, or entertainment preferences. Here are a few options you can try:
- Taking a Family Photo: There may be no better way to preserve happy memories than keeping a holiday card. The whole family can dress up in matching outfits and take beautiful pictures for the holiday card.
- Building/Decorating a Gingerbread House: Building a gingerbread house is another great indoor activity option. You and the kids can play around with building a gingerbread house, decorate it with candy, and eat it when you're done.
- Holiday Game Night: For video gamers and their gamer friends, hosting a game night with a projector during the Holidays is interesting. Gaming projectors can deliver a grander viewing experience and make game nights more memorable.
- Holiday Movie Night: A home cinema is another bright indoor activity you can explore. With a smart projector, you can enjoy your favorite movies on a large screen with the whole family.
- Karaoke Night With Festive Themes: The whole family and friends can take turns to sing their favorite songs using the home projector's built-in speakers.
- Gift Exchange/Ugly Sweater Party: You can invite your loved ones and have a competition for the best or most creative outfits and also give gifts to one another.
- Baking Holiday-themed Cookies: Parents and their kids can play around themes and explore their creativity with different designs.
- Decorating the Living Room: Holiday-themed decorations give the living room and the home a true festive feel, with colorful lights, ribbons, and bells everywhere.
Enjoying A Holiday-Themed Movie Night
If a home theater is an indoor activity that suits your taste, smart projectors have got you covered. They come with various features for you and your family to enjoy movies during the holidays and get into the holiday mood.
With a large and clear display, the whole family can be treated to great holiday-themed movies in the comfort of the living room. For an ideal experience, the home projector should come with the features below:
- Resolution: Large screen displays may sometimes come at the expense of quality, especially if the image is cast in low-resolution formats like 480p or 720p. With higher resolution capabilities like 1080p and 4K, home projectors can deliver a crystal-clear picture.
- Brightness: To enjoy watching movies with the family during the holidays, especially in the daytime, you need a smart projector with powerful brightness capabilities. The image needs to be bright enough to be clear even in ambient light. A brightness of 2000+ ANSI lumens is sufficient to provide a bright and clear image at any time of the day.
- Excellent Sound: Sound is a crucial factor contributing to the enjoyability of movies. Great sound produces an immersive atmosphere, delivering overall value to the viewers. Some home projectors come with built-in speakers that provide excellent sound quality and help you save money on external sound systems.
- Image Enhancement: A colorful display is captivating and easily relatable. Some projectors come with features that enhance the projected image, like MEMC for eliminating image blurs when viewing high motion content and HDR10 for realistically-defined colors.
- Easy Setup: No matter how promising the end product is, no one wants to get exhausted putting a home theater together. Some home projectors come with technology like auto focus, auto keystone correction, obstacle avoidance, and smart screen alignment that automatically gets the projector up and running in seconds.
- Built-in Entertainment: Some home projectors save you the stress of hunting for movies for the activity as they run on Android TV— a smart TV operating system based on Android and built for digital media players. With the Android TV system, users can stream their favorite movies, shows, and music with a WiFi connection.
