As a cycle studio owner, you may be considering investing in projectors and drop down screens to enhance your guests’ experience while they ride.

How to select your projector brightness
Brightness is just the beginning when it comes to selecting a projector for your  cycle studio. To get started, you must first decide if you need a short throw or long throw projector. A short throw projector is ideal if you have limited space since it can project a large image from a short distance. However, if you have ample space to work with, then a long throw projector is the better choice as it can project images from a further distance and reduce shadows and light interference.

Screen size
When it comes to choosing the right screen size, there are a few factors to consider. The size of the room, the distance between the projector and screen, and the number of guests you want to accommodate all play a role in determining the ideal screen size. As a general rule of thumb, a 100-inch diagonal screen is optimal for a cycle studio, but if in doubt, speak with an AV tech expert who can help you find the perfect size for your space.

Projector resolution
If you want the ability to protect your investment, then selecting a drop down screen is the way to go. These screens can be easily mounted to the ceiling and rolled down during class, then retracted after use. The size and length of the drop down screen should match the projector resolution to ensure the best image quality possible. Reconsidering your plans regarding projectors? Video walls are a great alternative to projectors and proctor screens. For more information on video walls click HERE.

Screen material
Another consideration when choosing a drop down screen is the type of material it is made from. White matte screens are the most common type of screen material used for projectors, but you can also select from glass bead, grey, and high contrast screens. The white matte screen is the most versatile of them all, while a glass bead screen is ideal for brightly lit rooms and high contrast screens enhance the image's black level.
