What is the difference between laser projection and normal projection?

What is the difference between laser projection and ordinary projection? As we all know, the concept of laser projection has not been proposed for a long time, but it is developing rapidly. Laser projection offers a revolutionary development possibility for projectors. In addition to the high price, other aspects of performance are very outstanding. So now let's take a look together, laser projection and ordinary projection difference is what exactly?

Light source

Laser light source life can reach more than 25000 hours. At 10 hours per day, it has a lifespan of up to 8 years, and at least 10 years at 8 hours per day.

Also, the claim that light sources slowly diminish in brightness over time is true for the ultra high-pressure mercury lamps used in projectors. Theoretically, due to the longer lifespan, laser light sources are able to maintain their brightness for a very long time without fading.


Whether it is laser TV or home projection, its practical application involves installation issues. Because of the principle characteristic that projectors need to project large size images at a guaranteed distance, generally speaking, in order to ensure the quality of the picture and the overall aesthetics of the living room installation, most home use projectors will take the hanging use.

Most of the home projectors use hanging way, laser TV can be placed directly on the TV cabinet.

Light Resistance

Laser projection reflects the light from the laser host directly into people's eyes, so users will see a very clear picture. The traditional projection requires a certain projection distance. In addition, in order to make people's vision more comfortable, the projection curtain mostly uses diffuse reflection principle to avoid direct reflection of the projection glare, so its anti-ambient light performance is relatively weak.


The price of laser projection is higher than ordinary projection. The highest price of ordinary projectors is about $200 to $300, while the lowest price of laser projection are about $1600 to $2000. The price of a laser projection is equivalent to the price of two ordinary projections.
