I just recently bought this Holiday Christmas Window Effects Projector from a company local to me in Cardiff called Digi4u and I thought I would post it here with some of my thoughts.
I went in store and was shown a Youtube video that showed what it was and really it looked great. They had projected a bunch of animated videos directly onto their frosted windows outside and you could see the image clear as day. (I’ll put the video below). It looked great and I couldn’t believe it was that simple to do, as I had thin curtains in my front room they said I could just project straight onto them and the video will be able to be seen from the outside, but if not then I could be instructed on how to make a vinyl projector screen cheaply from a Youtube video. I was also worried about how big and clunky the projector would be in my house (as I don’t have a lot of space to spare) however they showed me that the projector was barely any bigger than a Smartphone, a Lot smaller than I first thought. The Video Effects Videos were also bundled with the Projector on a Micro SD Card which could be inserted directly into the projector so I wouldn’t have to faff around going to websites and trying to find them. I bought the Projector set for £60 pounds in store which I believe is the same price as their website (which I will link to below if anyone is interested).
When I brought it home, I found it really was as simple as they had made out. I pointed the projector towards my window, inserted the bundled Micro SD Card into the back, selected the videos and pressed play. First impression was that the picture quality was quite impressive. As I said before the projector is very small, barely any bigger than my iPhone 6 so I wasn’t expecting miracles but it really was good, and the speaker on the projector was very powerful. I have bought Bluetooth wireless speakers in the past which sounded worse in honesty! After setting the video up I walked outside and found that sure enough the video was showing on the entirety of my window. It really did look the part. So now I am having this Video FX projector as the centrepiece of my Decorations this year and its already drawing looks in my neighbourhood.
Here is the video that I was shown at the store: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t8esJYj88A4&t=2s
