Finding the Right Projector for Your Event (Part 2 of 2)

896566_sBusiness or Personal Event

It’s a simple question, but it makes a big difference! Why? Ultimately, how you plan to use your projector will determine the type of projector you need.

Business events tend to involve PowerPoint or slideshow presentations and may require a template or blackboard/whiteboard function.

Here are a few key features that projectors may or may not have, with the relevant events they can be used for.


VGA port: Allows you to connect to a laptop or TV. Good for PowerPoint and slideshow presentations, watching sporting events, displaying websites.

Mic Input: Allows you to plug a corded microphone into the projector. Good for voice over presentations, Karaoke, and training sessions.

USB port: Allows you to connect to a memory stick. Good for PowerPoint and slideshow presentations.

Find the Right Projector Rental for Your Event (Part 1 of 2)

Projector RentalThere are a number of things to consider when looking for a perfect projector rental. Just like your unique event, no two projectors are alike. In this two part blog series we will explore the important factors to consider when choosing a projector rental so that you can make an informed, confident decision.

First, let’s discuss one of the most important determining factors that will affect your projector rental – your venue.

From Outdoor Weddings to Boardroom Presentations

Will your event take place indoors or outdoors? Are you planning an intimate gathering in a boardroom, classroom, your own living room? Or are you planning a large event in an auditorium, reception hall, or theater? Your venue relates directly to three important factors – light environment, throw space, and your audience.

Light Environment

If you are planning an outdoor event during the daytime, or plan to present in a well lit room, light will play a key role in picture interference. In bright environments, a high lumen projector is best (to learn more about lumens, visit our blog post – Decoding Projector Terminology). The opposite is true in a dark environment, where a low lumen projector is required.

Why is this important? In a bright environment, a low lumen projector will produce a washed out image that is hard to see, but the bright bulb of a high lumen projector will ensure a crystal clear display without any loss of color or definition. Likewise, a high lumen projector in a dark environment will create an image that is too bright for the eyes, but a low lumen projector will create the right brightness level while maintaining a vibrant display.

Throw Space

Giving a PowerPoint presentation in a boardroom is very different from presenting in a large auditorium. First, you have less space to work with in a boardroom, meaning that your projector will rest closer to the projection surface. In a large auditorium, this isn’t an issue. Your projector can sit as far back from the projection screen as needed.

Consider the amount of space you will have to work with before choosing a projector to rent. If you are planning on using a projector in a particularly restricted space, such as a trade show booth or your own living room, a short throw projector, which can produce a large display in a limited space, might be your best option. For really big venues, a large venue projector combines both high lumens and a large display to create a perfect display for large spaces.


How many people are attending your event? Are you planning an intimate anniversary party, a business meeting or training session with a handful of colleagues, a small religious ceremony or memorial service? Or will your event involve a larger gathering, such as a formal charity event, a speaking engagement, a main stage performance, or a corporate function?

For smaller audiences, a huge display is probably not necessary, which means the projection display size isn’t going to be a big factor when considering which projector to rent. For larger audiences, it’s important that everyone can see the display, from the person in the front row all the way to the back, which means you need a larger display. In this case, you need a projector that provides a larger display size. For particularly large audiences, a large-venue projector is a good option, as it maximizes your display without chipping away at your picture quality.

Your Venue in Review

  • Light Environment: The amount of light in your venue will affect your projector display. Dark environments need higher lumens. Light environments need lower lumens.
  • Throw Space: How much space do you have in your venue? Very small spaces may require a short throw projector. Very large spaces may require a large-venue projector.
  • Audience: Will your audience be big or small? Large audience’s will probably require a bigger display.

Our knowledgeable rental experts are available to answer any questions you might have about finding the perfect projector rental for your event. Whether you are planning a large outdoor display or a more intimate indoor presentation, we have the perfect multimedia options to make your event professional and dynamic.

How to Create an Outstanding PowerPoint Presentation

An outstanding PowerPoint slideshow has the potential to boost a presentation, making it not only effective and engaging, but also inspiring. With a few basic steps, anyone can create an outstanding PowerPoint presentation that is both professional and fun for your audience.

26349490_sBefore You Begin

It’s important to understand the purpose of a PowerPoint presentation before you begin. Think of your slideshow as your own personal support system. It should provide backing and give strength to your speaking presentation, reinforcing your key points and goals.  An effective slideshow should not present all of your material for you or act as your speaking notes. An effective slideshow is simply the exclamation point at the end of what you have already said.

For this reason, you should never put a PowerPoint slideshow together before planning your presentation from start to finish. Once you have firmly established what you are going to say, you can then start to create a slideshow that will support your key points. This will ensure the slides support your message rather than speak for you. 

Keep It Simple

Of all the advice out there about PowerPoint presentations, this is probably the most important – keep it simple! This applies to your design as well as your content. Stay away from hard to read fonts, overly colorful templates, cluttered designs, and lengthy paragraphs. Remember, your slideshow is your support system, not the main act. If a slide’s message isn’t clear within a few seconds of viewing it, it probably needs to be simplified or removed. Here are a few ideas to keep it simple:

  • Stay consistent– stick with a basic set of colors and fonts throughout your entire slideshow
  • Avoid paragraphs – short phrases, one word, or even no words at all (just an image) work best. Remember, your audience’s concentration isn’t on you if they are reading your slides.
  • Use transitions sparingly – animated transitions such as fade, wipe, and dissolve can become distracting and tacky if overused. If you choose to incorporate transitions, use them sparingly.
  • One point per slide – your slides are not your speaking notes. Keep your message clear by focusing on one, key point for each slide.
  • Don’t skip ahead – only provide information you have just covered or are about to cover. This keeps your message immediate and your audience focused.
  • Be your audience – step in your audience’s shoes and try to view your slides from their perspective. Are they clear? Are they in a logical order? Are they interesting and relevant to your presentation?

BPresentatione a Passionate Storyteller

Ultimately the goal of any presentation is to hold your audience’s attention and effectively pass on information. The best way to achieve this is to not only be passionate about your subject matter, but to present your information in a dynamic way – by telling a story.

Stories hold our attention, especially when they come from a passionate storyteller, and we remember stories long after they are told. Why? Because we can connect to stories and relate to them, often on a personal level. A story will always be more effective and motivating than bullet points with facts and figures.

Find a way to connect to your audience. Give them details that will mean something to them. Instead of a chart that shows sales revenues increased by 10% over the last quarter, share a picture and story of a family who received assistance through the company’s recent donation to a relief fund, which was made possible by employee efforts that boosted company sales 10% over the last quarter.

Every slide should in some way contribute to your story and connect with your audience. If a slide isn’t contributing in some way, it probably isn’t necessary. Remember too, you don’t always have to use words to tell a story. A powerful image can be just as effective!

Be Creative and Break the Rules

Every slide in your PowerPoint presentation is important because every slide is an opportunity to connect to your audience and inspire them – it’s the difference between keeping their full attention and losing them to complete boredom. When you create a slide, think of it like a magazine cover. Use professional images, evocative headlines, and an organized, strong format to engage your audience with a clear, dynamic message.

Familiarize yourself with PowerPoint and understand how it works before you begin. This will allow you to create your own backgrounds and templates without relying on the program’s cookie cutter designs that your audience has probably seen one too many times.

Finally, don’t be afraid to break the rules. After all, that’s what creativity is all about! Many PowerPoint guides will tell you there is a right and wrong way to create a presentation, but ultimately what matters is that the slideshow works in your favor. If you can keep your audience’s attention with nothing but pictures – than go for it! If bullet points keep your slides organized, stick to bullet points! Understand the rules, then don’t be afraid to break them when you have a good reason to do so.
