Backyard Theater:  Epson Laser Projector

ProjectorsWe do as many outdoor entertainment areas as we door indoor systems due to the great weather here in Texas. Some systems are as simple as hanging a TV over an outdoor fireplace. Occasionally we have a client that desires something more dynamic.

This system was completed over the Christmas holidays (note the lights on the eaves!). It features a motorized 12’ video screen that retracts into a pocket under the roof when not in use. The projector is a new unit from Epson that uses ultra short-throw lens technology so the projector sits only 18” from the screen. Additionally, the projector uses laser technology to create a bright HD image, so there’s never a bulb to replace. Couple these components with a great sound system and iPhone app control and it is movie night under the stars year-round!
