We'll show how anyone can benefit from the fantastic portable and accessible features & advantages of these devices; by answering questions such as "what is the best portable projector set-up? What is the best way to set up a portable projector in a home, academic, or office environment?"

How to Set Up A Portable Projector

Portable projectors are by far the most accessible type of projector to set-up. Their portability features, such as a small ergonomic design, and integrated batteries, allow them to fit in almost any environment – following simple and easy set-up; in just a few minutes. Let's have a look at the most common requirements to organize your device and set-up your portable projector anytime & anywhere.

Find a Projecting Surface

The first step in creating the best portable projector set-up is to find an adequate projecting surface. Projecting surfaces vary in size, shape, and color. They are designed in the form of projector screens and are widely available in most academic & office spaces. Projecting screens are also precious in outdoor environments – where linear and sharp-angled walls & surfaces do not exist.

The most beneficiary traits of a projecting surface are:

  • Smoothness
  • Sharp angles that allow light to disperse evenly
  • Bright reflexive colors that allow light to reflect towards the viewer (white, beige, and cream)
  • Size is important. Try to find a surface that fits the projector's image scaling specifications

Understand Your Portable Projector

Now it's time to understand the specifications & accessories of a good portable projector set-up. Specifications are the sets of hardware and software features that make up any electronic device, such as portable projectors.

The most important specs to know when learning how to create a portable projector set-up are:

  • Image scaling: Image scaling dictates how large your projected image will look on a surface. This helps you understand your portable projector's limitations when trying to project on large or small surfaces.
  • Lux & lumen: Lux & lumen are brightness measurements (output) and light distribution on a projected surface. They help you measure the crispness, brightness, and sharpness of a projected image at a distance or on a large surface.
  • Resolution: Resolution dictates the number of pixels that are projected onto a surface. This is an important specification that measures the overall image quality of your portable projector.
  • Operating system (OS): The operating system is the software specification that dictates how your device operates and dictates program compatibility.

Media & Connectivity Approach

The media & connectivity approach decides how to approach the consumption of media with a portable projector. Some types of media that dictate the content's display and classification on your portable projector include:

  • Movies
  • TV streaming
  • Powerpoint Presentations
  • Pictures
  • Screen mirroring
  • Online video streaming services

Connectivity refers to how you decide to view your media content on your portable projector. Connectivity is primarily reliant on the type of portable projector you own, its specifications, and hardware. Some examples of connectivity varieties included in Vankyo portable projectors, such as the GO300 and Burger 10, are:

  • HDMI ports + cables
  • Wi-Fi support
  • Bluetooth support
  • App Store & screen mirroring support
  • USB file transfer for media support
  • AV cables + ports
  • VGA cables + ports

Home Environment

Setting up a portable projector in a home is one of the most accessible procedures you'll ever have to undertake. Most houses are constructed using linear architectural features (straight, flat, and angular surfaces). These features make almost any wall in the home (provided that it's a clear non-intrusive color like white) the perfect cover to protect your images, videos, games, TV shows & series, and more!

To set up your portable projector in the home without issues, all you need to do is follow this list of steps we've compiled below.

  1. Find a place to position your projector (kitchen table, desk, living room table, chair, bookcase, book on top of a bed)
  2. Check the charge of the portable projector's battery.
  3. Establish your media & connectivity approach (screen mirroring a movie through the Netflix app using Wi-Fi to interface your smartphone & projector)
  4. Configure the projector image on your projecting surface using a manual or automatic key-stoning, and lens correction feature.
  5. Enjoy your portable projector experience in the home!
