Projecting effectively in high ambient brightness conditions

Despite the increasing brightness levels of business projectors in general, image clarity can be
challenging in spaces with a lot of ambient light. This is especially so in makeshift/external venues like
terraces or lawns being used for special events and even in alternative meeting spaces within the
office like atriums and cafeterias.

Commonly tried solutions involve the use of blinds and special lighting schemes, more expensive
high-brightness projectors or creating a rear-projection system. However each of these comes with
considerable limitations or costs.

So how can one practically resolve the issue of image clarity in such environments?

A frequently overlooked and elegant solution is to address the projection screen itself – and selecting
one with special properties that enhance clarity in high lighting conditions.

The DNP Supernova One is one example which delivers pretty dramatic results (see image below).
Designed with special optical properties for bright environments this screen acts as an active high-
contrast filter reflecting the projected image while effectively absorbing incident light from other
angles.

The screen performs well in both dark and bright rooms and is compatible with a range of projectors, large and small. Presenters can conveniently engage with audiences in the brighter environments by maintaining eye contact, reacting to facial expressions and using other tools like whiteboards to make a point.
