Why You Should Use Smart Projectors To Watch Sci-Fi Movies
Smart projectors are excellent for watching sci-fi movies as they offer an immersive and cinematic experience and keep you glued to the screen. Some features that help you enjoy sci-fi movies with smart projectors include:
Motion compensation (MEMC) technology actively inserts frames in the middle of two frames of footage to increase the total number of frames in the same scene. This ensures that any fast-paced action is displayed smoothly and clearly without any image trailing, so you won't miss any action regardless of how fast it may be.
Some smart projectors have professional built-in speakers that provide dynamic sound to immerse you in any sci-fi movie fully.
Smart projectors come with large screens of about 60-200 inches which allows you to watch from a comfortable distance and be immersed in everything happening in the movie, further heightening your sci-fi movie experience.
Smart projectors come with 1080p or 4K resolution, which offers crystal-clear imagery that rivals most smart TVs, allowing you to see every single detail of each scene and brightness levels ranging from 700-1800 ISO Lumens for bright displays. So you would not need external lights in the house or outdoors, even for dark scenes.
Some smart projectors have integrated operating systems like Android TV, which provides access to thousands of apps via Google Play. They also feature multiple connectivity options (HDMI, USB, LAN, Audio) to connect to external devices (gaming consoles, TV sticks, hard drives, laptops).
XGIMI projectors are typically more compact with less weight compared to TVs making them easy to carry from room to room or install without taking up a lot of space. Some XGIMI portable projectors also have a built-in battery that provides about 2.5 hours of power, making them suitable for a movie night in the backyard or during camping.
