Since SKY Sports took the subscription TV for sporting events back in the early 1990 by storm, it has made sense for venues such as sports clubs and pubs to attract customers with the view to increase sales of drinks & food. Terrestrial TV has also not wanting to get left behind on major events like the forthcoming Rugby World Cup starting in Sept 2015 which is being shown on ITV. The challenge is how can a sport club or pub cash in of the showing sports to its customers when budgets are limited or you might not want to put all your money into a leased pub. You could of course go and buy a few 42" TV's stick them up around the pub or club and hope that does the trick, but in truth we all have oversized TV's in our lounges and you are not going to create the wow factor that way. Why not turn to a projector, it will cost less than you think.

Why not turn to a projector, it will cost less than you think.

So there are two solutions possible, go for the traditional set-up where you have a projector mounted one side of the room, a projector screen to pull down when you are using it and cabling going to your source but that can involve expense and also often you just don't have the right layout that will work, people will work in front of the image or a cable run might be expensive. Here is where we have a different approach, go for a Short throw projector 1080p projector. You can get a 100" diagonal image, mount the projector on an arm on the viewing wall without needing to run loads of cabling or costly installation, in fact you should be able to do the job yourself, especially if you use a installation kit which just requires now expertise at all. The screen will either need to be fixed all the time as short throws do prefer a flat surface but why not just have a white wall instead of the screen, again a way to save money. Another huge advantage of short throws is that the win the battle for brightness as they are so close to the wall then 2500 to 3500 lumens is really bright.

We know that pubs & clubs need to have a solution that is going to last and maybe in the past you had a projector that cost loads to run as the lamps were always running out, the good news is that you will get around 6000 hours from one that costs £120, so that represents 8 hours a day for 2 years without spending any more money. We can offer an Nationwide installation service for you, but if you just need some advice and want to buy a do-it-yourself kit then we are more than helping to help.
