- The European Football Championship is just around the corner.
- We explain to you how you can enjoy soccer games in your garden on the projector.
The 2021 European Football Championship is just around the corner and, of course, football games are a lot more fun on the big screen. If you can also sit in the open air, nothing stands in the way of cheering.
With a Beamer and a few other extensions, a football evening in your own garden can be prepared in a short time. Below we explain how you can transform your garden into a public viewing arena with just a few materials.
The pavilion and high-contrast screen ensure a good picture
One thing that you shouldn’t be without is a pavilion. In these you simply put the canvas. This ensures that the screen is darkened and a pleasant contrast is achieved even in daylight. If too much light falls on the screen, most projectors will not be bright enough to produce a crisp picture.
It is also important to note that it should be an opaque pavilion. Many pavilions are slightly transparent and do not shield enough light. So check beforehand what material the pavilion is made of.
You can also achieve a strong improvement in image quality using a high-contrast screen. These special screens absorb light falling from the side and amplify the light from the projector that hits the front in the direction of the audience.
If you combine a bright projector with a high-contrast screen and a pavilion mentioned above, it is even possible to watch football outside in daylight.
Your projector must be able to do that
With the projector you should make sure that it has enough brightness. A brightness of at least 3,000 lumens is recommended. In terms of resolution, it is up to your own requirements whether you opt for a full HD or 4K projector.
So-called ultra-short distance projectors or laser TVs are also practical.They have the advantage of being able to be placed directly in front of the screen. This also means there is no risk of someone accidentally walking through the image.
This is how you get the TV signal into the garden
But how do you get the TV signal into the garden? The easiest way to do this is through a live TV provider such as Zattoo. This has now optimized its transmission so that it almost instantly to the live signal he follows. So your neighbors don’t cheer any earlier than you do.
Zattoo is available for many platforms. For example, the Fire TV Stick can be used as a player for the projector or your laptop.
Since you definitely need the internet to stream a football game, it is recommended that you do so WLAN does not extend into the gardento lay a network cable.
Alternatively, there is also the option of a Open the WiFi hotspot with your mobile phone. However, you should note that larger amounts of data are used. So check in advance whether your mobile phone contract provides that much data volume.
