When looking for a projector make sure you take into consideration the requirements of your auditorium. The brightness of the projector (lumens) is one of the most important factors when choosing a projector. If your auditorium has a fair amount of natural light you will want a projector with a higher lumens rating. 

We suggest getting the highest lumens you can afford. The higher lumens provides a greater amount of contrast to the  projected image. A range between 1700 to 2800 lumens is best. A projector under 1500 lumens will not have a high enough contrast level in most auditoriums. 

Another consideration is the resolution of the projector. Most projectors these days are at a native resolution of 1024x768. All the downloadable presentations on Using PowerPoint in Church have been designed at this resolution. Some high-end projectors available today will run at a native resolution of 1280x1024. The difference in an image at 1280x1024 and 1024x768 is minimal. Once you get above a certain number of pixels the average person cannot tell the difference, when back a short distance from the screen. Avoid purchasing projectors that are running at a native resolution of 800x600. At 800x600 the projector is receiving 480,000 pixels, a projector at 1024x768 is receiving 786,432 pixels, almost double the number of pixels a 800x600 projector receives. Make sure you are getting a native resolution of 1024x768. There are some projectors that have a native resolution of 800x600 and scale the image from a 1024x768 computer feed.
