Have you tried watching movies outdoors, in the fresh air and sunshine? Or a movie night under the stars while you camp? Summer is coming, and it is the perfect time to enjoy an outdoor movie night. With a portable projector, you can set up your very own outdoor theater anywhere – at home or on vacation. In this blog post, we will walk you through the steps of setting up your very own outdoor theater. Here’s how you do it.

Find a good spot

First, you need to find a good spot to set up your projector. If you are setting up at home, choose a spot in your backyard where there is little to no light pollution. If you are setting up while camping, try to find a place away from campfires and other bright lights. Once you have found the perfect spot, set up your projector on a table or other flat surface.

Find the perfect projector

There are many different types of projectors, and not all projectors have the same features. When choosing a projector for your outdoor theater, you need to take into account the following factors:

Brightness: For an outdoor movie setup, you need to have a projector that has high lumens. As you need to consider sunlight, your house lights, and any other light sources that might affect your viewing experience. So find a projector with high brightness to maximize your outdoor theater experience

Battery life: If you are setting up your projector while camping, you will need to choose a projector with long battery life so that you can enjoy your movie without worrying about the battery dying.

Has an internal memory: This will come in handy if you want to store movies on your projector and watch them offline. You can download movies at home and watch them later without an internet connection.

Resolution: The resolution of the projector is measured in pixels. The higher the resolution, the sharper the image will be. Choose a projector with at least 720p resolution for HD quality movies.

Contrast ratio: The contrast ratio is the difference between the darkest black and the brightest white that the projector can produce. A high contrast ratio is essential for an outdoor theater because it will make the images on the screen appear more vivid and life-like.

Throw ratio: The throw ratio is the distance between the projector and the screen divided by the width of the projection. A projector with a short-throw ratio will be able to project a large image from a short distance, while a projector with a long throw ratio will require a longer distance to project the same size image. For an outdoor theater, you will want a projector with a short-throw ratio so that you can set it up close to the screen.

Consider the sound

One of the most important aspects of any movie experience is the sound. For your outdoor theater, you will need to consider how you are going to get sound to your audience. If you are setting up in your backyard, you can use speakers that are connected to your projector. If you are setting up while camping, you can use a portable Bluetooth speaker or find a projector with a good quality built-in speaker. Either way, make sure that the sound system you choose is loud enough to be heard by everyone in your audience.

Find the perfect screen

There are many different types of screens that you can choose from for your outdoor theater. You need to take into account the size of the screen, the weight, and how easy it is to set up and take down. For a portable outdoor theater, you will want to choose a screen that is lightweight and easy to carry. Many inflatable screens are a good option because they are easy to set up and take down and can be kept in a small space.

Set it up and enjoy the outdoor theater!

Now that you have everything you need, it’s time to set it up and enjoy your outdoor theater experience. Start by inflating your screen and attaching it to a sturdy surface. Then set up your projector and speaker, and make sure that they are pointing in the right direction. Be sure to take a look at Lenso SIL.
