We are in the process of building a studio. We are going to have it set up for shooting as well as client presentation. I have no experience with projectors. What specifications should I be looking for and are there any models that you might recommend?

A couple of things to look out for, maximum brightness is measured in lumens. The higher the better. Then of course resolution and weigh if your going to carry it around. This one is my personal recommendation.

I concur with Jon Attree's comments on lumens. I have a Panasonic LCD Projector (PT-AE700U) It is absolutely great, ......as long as it is properly lite or rather not properly lite. In order for me to enjoy this model the room will need to be dim. This model specifications say the luminosity is 1000 lm

Here are some considerations you may want to think about:

1. Various input options-HDMI, Composite, DVI, DVIi, DVIp, Standard RCA (Video, Audio)

2. Bulb life--Bulbs are expensive (mine cost $300.00 only because I am in Japan it usually is listed at a higher price), life is measured in hours of usage, and care of equipment. If you accidently drop it, fail to clean the air filter and you can pretty much rest assured the bulb life will be substancially lowered.

3. Mounting capabilities-Ceiling, wall or upside down some models do not offer as many capabilities as others.

4. Maximum projection distance. Your lumens

5. Lets not even comment on colors (heavens to Betsy thats a whole nother post in itself)

I ended up (a year and $1,500.00 later) getting a 52 inch flat screen. Technology is always changing and I followed the Joneses (as usual) The projector is ok, I just did not like dimming the lights.

I will admit that he clients absolutely loved the screen and the fact that they were treated like royalty.

I hope this helps you with you decision.
