The best thing about a DIY 1080p HD Projector is the price at which you can assemble one. Typically, commercial 1080p HD Projector cost a small fortune. By following this video, you can make one at a fraction of the cost. We had featured a similar build in the past – DIY Projector with HDTV Quality.
The starting point for the self rigged 1080p HD projector is a 120V S15 Mega-Kit from Lumenlab. The Lumenlab kit gives a leg up with all the different components for the projector setup. The kit includes:
- S15 Projection Lens Triplet to focus the light.
- Fresnel lens to shape the reflected light
- LL/Vue 400w eBallast powering the 400W 6500K bulb.
The Lumenlab store is also a good place to shop around for a compatible LCD flat panel monitor that will support the high definition projections at that resolution. Save a ton of bother by buying one which will be let you enjoy high end image formats like Blu-Ray.
A high-def projector is a precision gadget. Exact specifications for the design may really make or break the project. This is where Lumenlabâ€™s DIY Projector Guide and the Projector Builder section of the Lumenlab Forum lend their know-how. The DIY HD projector may seem like a hi-tech challenge, but with the starter help of the video, Lumenlabâ€™s kit and forum, itâ€™s worth the work.
