Meaning that you can enjoy watching your favorite movies or TV shows every day for 4 to 5 hrs for up to 20 years without worrying about costly lamp replacement (70% cost of projector).
B. Green Technology – Low Power – LEDs are mercury free and consumes half or less power compare to traditional Lamp projectors.
C. Constant Brightness – The brightness of LED does not decrease with its usages or passing months as there is no filament burning as in lamp projectors who decrease in brightness with every single use. LEDs remain nearly constant for its entire life span, meaning the day it is today it may be similarly bright even after a decade.
D. Low Cost – not only PLAY projectors are half the price of competitive products, the LED lamp if at all needed to be changed is also cheaper than its counterpart and may cost around 5k to 6k only.

As LED TV are very harmful for eyes as you are directly looking into the brightest technology i.e. LED. However in case of projectors you are actually looking at only a reflection on wall or on a fabric screen without any radiation or light source.
F. Cool Technology – Instant switch on/off – LEDs are much cooler technology and hence do not require to wait to switch on again while the lamp is still hot. All PLAY projectors are equipped with instant on /off . Meaning that it is THE technology for India , where in power cuts are frequent and in case of a power cut the lamp will not get damaged as in other Lamp projectors in absence of internal fan abruptly switching off due to power cut.
Ans : A. E-Core -Most of the other Projector manufacturers are from western countries having low heat and dust environment and virtually no power cut. However PLAY projector with E-Core technology is fitted with the 3 MOST important thing needed for this country. 1. Cool Technology of LED 2. Dust Proof E-Core Engine & 3. Instant on/off avoiding lamp damage in power cut situations.
B. Connectivity / interface – Undoubtedly PLAY comes with most of the interface ports seen in projectors in this range. You name it and we have it from USB, HDMI, TV, Video, VGA etc. This is because we have designed it to fit both Home and Office unlike others for office use only.
C. Custom Warranty –with warranty centre at your home country you have absolute peace of mind in case it goes wrong. What more you can design your own warranty, yes just choose the tenure you like to have.

Ans : DLP and/or LCOS use 1” or lesser size LCD while PLAY uses 3.5, 5 and 5.8” LCD to deliver true color & motion representation needed for cinema viewing . These other competing technologies were designed for office slide presentations, and so have inherent problem of fast motion image freezing for seconds because of small LCD size/FPS & rainbow effects, however these problem are not there in PLAY projectors due to its large size of LCDs.

Ans :As per the encyclopedia, Lumens is the true unit of brightness. However ANSI stands for American National Standard Institute, which primarily coined the ANSI Lumen’s unit , mostly used by Texas Instrument to measure the brightness of its DLP projectors. Since short lamp life of DLP Lamp projectors are the main producers till recent times this has become the standard for people using this technology.
It may not be correct to measure any single LCD projector specially no DLP in ANSI Lumens as this system was not developed for LCD projectors and cannot provide an accurate & uniform rating of brightness across the screen. It is more accurate to measure PLAY and other LED/LCD projector in pure Lumens, as this is the universal standard for measuring the intensity/brightness of light.
