What should you look for
in a screen?

When you’re choosing the right display for your business, there’s a lot to consider. One of the first questions you might ask is: Do I need an all in one meeting room solution, a whiteboard or a flat panel?

Achieving the optimum display, with the correct visibility, is critical to getting the most from your meetings and on-screen content. One of the advantages of Epson projectors is that they offer a scalable screen size, to meet the varying requirements of rooms of all sizes.

The right size for optimum visibility

It starts with finding the right screen size for your room. This simple choice is so important – you need to display content clearly to have effective meetings, while also ensuring that you adhere to health and safety standards. With a scalable solution that suits rooms of any size, Epson projectors make this decision easier than ever.

Meet minimum screen size requirements with ease

You wouldn’t be comfortable working at a desk where the screen is too small – it’s not good for your eyes, and can compromise the quality of on-screen content.

For the same reasons, you need a screen size that is suitable for your meeting room – which is why Epson projectors exceed the health and safety standards for the equivalent desktop display experience. (EU Directive 90/270/EEC – Display Screen Equipment).

The screen size scalability and functionality of Epson projectors mean it’s easy to ensure that content shown is not too small, is of high quality and clearly visible to all, taking into consideration viewing distances from the screen. That way, everyone in your meeting has the same opportunities to share and engage.

Find the ideal screen size for your meeting room

Our interactive viewing distance tool lets you calculate the ideal screen size for your projector based on room dimensions, layout and number of seats.

The acceptable viewing distance for a 300" Projector screen is 14.2m3

Choosing your solution

Achieving the optimal screen size means replicating the average desktop experience for all participants in your meeting, including those furthest away from the screen.

According to the Snellen eye sight test, to make an image appear the same size when it is twice as far away, it needs to be twice as tall, or four times the size in area.

Quality that’s easy to see

Automatic light adjustment in Epson projectors detects the ambient light conditions in the room and changes the level of brightness accordingly, so you can view content clearly without glare.

Some flat panels have restricted viewing angles, making it hard to see content on the screen when viewed from the side of a room. This, however, is not the case with Epson projectors, which have no blind spots, enabling everyone to easily view the content.

Flat panel RGB screens can appear pixelated when viewed up close for long periods – such as during interactive presentations or prolonged collaboration – potentially causing strain to the eyes. On the other hand, projectors have less pixilation than flat panel displays, and with automatic light adjustment, they can be viewed in comfort for longer periods.

Why is display size important?

Presentations can only be engaging and effective if they can be seen clearly. It's important for the viewer to not only appreciate what is on the screen, but also to avoid eye strain. By applying our knowledge about how to achieve ideal display size, it is possible to make every presentation clear and easy to view.

How does it feel?

Providing a safe and easy viewing experience for a projection can be achieved by simulating the conditions which are set for viewing a desktop. There are guidelines for desktops set out by the EU Directive 90/270/EEC for display screen equipment, which can be replicated when determining the size of a projected display. This allows you to: create a comfortable experience that desktop users are familiar with, ensures your content is clear and avoids your viewers getting eye strain. Don't forget; it's important to consider that a projected image will feel differently in size to the viewer based on where they're situated, so factor in the person that is sat furthest away to make your calculations on the most appropriate image size.

Take the test

So how can you choose the right display size for your presentation? Most people are familiar with the Snellen eye test which is used by opticians to test people's eyesight. To see clearly with ideal 20/20 vision, you need to be able to observe the letters on a chart from 20 feet away. According to the Snellen eye sight test, to make an image appear the same size when it is twice as far away, it needs to be twice as tall, or four times the size in area. We can apply this knowledge to projector display sizes to ensure that the viewer can see clearly.

How does it work?

We've developed this tool to take into consideration all of these factors to help you determine the ideal display screen size. Simply input the room layout, number of viewers and the room size. You can then adjust the sliders to find out what display size is needed.

To always provide a clear and comfortable display, our projectors can be scaled to suit different room sizes and audiences, providing a cost-effective and future-proof solution, even if display requirements change. Ultimately, with presentations being easy to view, audiences will be more engaged and provide you with a more productive and effective outcome.
