Golf Simulator Projector Terminology

 Buying a projector for your golf simulator arrangement is one little, yet a significant slice of the pie. While looking for a versatile simulator projector, you may run into a few terms you do know, like a goal, yet others that you're new to, for example, toss distance. Clue: it's not how far you can toss your projector without breaking it.

Underneath, we assist with clarifying what a portion of these terms mean and what they will mean for your golf simulator use. These terms will assist you with buying your projector and setting it up in your space.

You will more likely than not run over the expression "lumens" while looking for projectors. In fundamental terms, lumen implies how brilliant that projector's picture will be.

The farther away the projector is from the screen or the more surrounding light you are managing, the higher the lumen number you will need.

Perspective RATIO

No, those proportion numbers (4:3, 16:9) are not the number of strokes and putts we are anticipating you to have on your first golf simulator opening.

Viewpoint proportion alludes to the state of the picture being anticipated. At the point when the viewpoint proportion of the projector, picture, and screen match, the picture fills the whole screen and you won't see dark concealing bars.


Most projectors either utilize a light, LED lights or lasers to focus the light on the screen.

The light is the reliable way that has been around since the creation of the wheel. Alright, perhaps not that long, but rather it's most certainly the reliable innovation. Some new developments, like more brilliant light and expanded life expectancy, are being added. Be that as it may, on the off chance that you need a higher lumen yield, your support needs will increment also.

LEDs are extraordinary for introducing projectors in difficult-to-arrive at places as they require low support. They won't go through a light as fast, which makes them incredible for golf simulator arrangements that will be utilized each day.

Laser is one of the quickest developing advances in the projector business. It is like an LED with a high light life and low upkeep, and it likewise produces lower heat. Which isolates it from the other two is the higher lumen yield, which is incredible for a bigger arrangement.


Fluid Crystal Display (LCD) has three separate glass boards – one for red, blue, and green. Sort of like stained glass in a congregation, however not actually.

As light goes through the LCD boards, individual pixels can be opened to permit light to pass or shut to impede the light, as though every little pixel were fitted with a Venetian visually impaired.

This movement adjusts the light and delivers the picture that is projected onto the screen, which assists with shading immersion and gives a fairly more honed picture.

The Digital Light Processing (DLP) chip – no, it's not consumable – is an intelligent surface comprised of thousands of minuscule mirrors with each mirror addressing a solitary pixel.

Light from the projector's light is coordinated onto the outer layer of the DLP chip and the mirrors wobble to and fro, coordinating light either into the focal point way to turn the pixel on, or away from the focal point way to turn it off. DLP is known for its smoother video, showing fewer pixels and having higher differentiation for "darker" blacks.


The goal is characterized as the number of pixels that are utilized to make a picture by a projector. It's communicated as the number of pixels on the level pivot by the number of pixels on the upward hub. The higher the goal of the projector, the more pixels it portrays and the more itemized the picture.

With regards to the projector goal for your golf simulator, there are two vital terms to know: local and most extreme. The local goal is the genuine, valid and actual goal of the projector. The projector won't ever have the option to show more real pixels than it has on those boards or chips.

The most extreme goal is the most noteworthy goal signal that the projector has been modified to measure and show. At the point when a projector gets a sign that doesn't coordinate with its local goal, it should change that sign over to the organization of its local goal to show it appropriately. This transformation interaction generally alluded to as scaling will consistently lose something in the picture.


The toss distance is the measure of room between the projector focal point and screen surface.

As per, the toss distance partitioned by the width of the picture makes up the toss proportion. The most famous toss proportion is 2, which implies that for each foot of picture width, the projector should be 2 feet away. On the off chance that your projector has a toss proportion of 2 feet and your screen width is 9 feet, that implies your projector should be 18 feet away.

A projector with a long-range focal point accompanies two distinctive toss proportions: one for the base zoom setting and one for the most extreme.

A short-toss projector is unified with a focal point that has a toss proportion of 0.4 or less. Short-toss projectors can make a huge picture with a little distance between screen and projector.

Info LAG

The lower the info slack, the better for your golf simulator.

Info slack alludes to the time between when the sound/video signal from the information source (PC, tablet, or another gadget) is gotten by the projector and when the projector really projects the video that compares to that sign.

Differentiation RATIO

On the off chance that you take the most brilliant white on a screen and the haziest dark and think about the glow, you will get the differentiation proportion. A projector may have an incredible lumens rating, however on the off chance that the differentiation proportion is low, your picture will watch cleaned out.

In a dull room, a differentiation proportion of basically 1,500:1 is acceptable, yet 2,000:1 or higher is great.

Cornerstone CORRECTION

In the event that you have an unusual fixation on trapezoids, you won't have to stress over this.

Do you intend to have your projector not straightforwardly opposite to your golf simulator screen? Provided that this is true, you will need to ensure your picked projector has adaptable cornerstone amendment settings.

Cornerstone amendment permits you to slant the extended picture to make it rectangular to fill your screen however much as could be expected.
