Not many people own high powered dvd projectors. Does your employer?

We need a high powered dvd projector for optimal viewing of evening programs at the Gathering. At this point, any projector higher than the 1000+ lumens range we already have lined up will be an improvement. But, the higher the lumens value, the better.

If your company has one that they would be willing to lend to a non-profit (501(c)3) for the weekend, please let me know that ASAP and include the lumens specifications. Of course, if you happen to personally own a higher lumens projector that you can bring to the Gathering, please get in touch with me and include the lumens spec.

My research shows we should optimally have one in the 4,000 lumens (or higher) range so the closer we can get to this specification, the better, brighter, and easier to see the presentations will be.

Rental costs are prohibitive for this type of projector.

Thank you for your attention,
