What do I need to show movies in my backyard?
A Screen: The surface you project on. We recommend one of our OutStandingScreens™.
A Video Projector: This is the device that projects your video source. The projector gets its signal (video-in) from your video player (video-out). If you already own a projector, problem solved. If you are buying a projector there are some things you should consider.
A Video Source: The video player sends video (video-out) to your projector's (video-in). The video player can be a dvd player, computer, video camera, VCR, phone, anything that has an external video port. That video source is fed to your projector using the appropriate cabling.
A Stereo: Your stereo gets its sound (audio-in) from the video player’s (audio-out). Your speakers connect to your stereo.
