Rear Projection Projectors

Rear Projection Projector It is important to know that most every projector available today is capable of rear projection; the setting is inside of the projector and really has little to do with anything else. In order to use your projector as a rear projection projector you will need to access the projector menu and choose the rear projection setting.

Within the menu it may seem a bit confusing the first time you take a look at it, there is a lot of functionality and adjustments that you can control inside of the projector. Most of the settings should not be adjusted unless you are knowledgeable of the expected results that will be associated.

Rear Projection Example

Most often you will see a display setting that will give you the option of choosing the rear projection setting in your projector. You can choose desktop rear projection or ceiling rear projection setting for your projector. If you install your projector without adjusting these settings you will experience the image being distorted by one or more aspects.

Rear Projection Settings to choose from –

  • Rear Projection setting flips the image around so that the picture is displayed appropriately and not reversed. The two rear projection settings below will adjust additional functionality to make setting up for rear projection that much easier.
  • Desktop Rear Projection setting adjusts the image so when the projector is sitting on a table or surface the image will be displayed appropriately and not upside down. This rear projection setting adjusts the angle of projection so the projector can be placed right side up on a desk or surface, there are mirrors on the inside of the projector that adjusts this for you without tedious effort.
  • Ceiling Rear Projection setting adjusts the image so when the projector is flipped over and hanging from the ceiling the image is right side up and adjusted for rear projection usage. This is the typical setting for projecting on glass and most commercial rear projection screen applications.
