Today, we are going to share our experience with the smart home theater JMGO E8 projector.
It so happened that home projectors have always been associated with large, noisy and expensive devices. Fortunately, progress did not stand still. Over the past few years, manufacturers have flooded store shelves with affordable projectors.
For a long time, projectors have improved on the way to increase brightness and resolution, but circumstances have emerged that have become a serious obstacle to the introduction of high-resolution projectors. The main problem was the transmission of a high-resolution signal due to its gigantic volume, which is increasing exponentially. Each step to increase the pixel density by two times leads to an increase in the signal volume by four times. An additional contribution of a comparable volume is added by an increase in the width and depth of the color spectrum. Low demand for projectors with an increased but unclaimed resolution, prompted manufacturers to start improving their quality characteristics. It is important to emphasize that this is not about the piece of Hi-Fi projectors for the elite, but about mass projectors. There are several manufacturers of such projectors JMGO E8 is one of the leaders among them. It was the one which took fundamental steps to improve the quality of the image reproduced by affordable projectors.
