How big should a projection screen be to be seen by everyone in the room?

How large should your screen be for a large audience?

We know that in order to determine screen size for a projected image, the distance the farthest members of the audience will be sitting from the screen should be the determining factor. After all, if the screen is bigger, people can see it from further away.

For open spaces, auditoriums and conference rooms the width of the screen should be at least 1/6 the distance of the farthest spectator in the audience. 

For example, if the back row of an auditorium is 48 ft. away then the width of the screen should be at least 8 ft. wide. This rule of thumb is for minimum screen size. It is OK to go larger. The important thing is to get a screen that is large enough for the audience in the back row to view comfortably.

However, there are other determining factors, most notably the resolution of the image on the screen.

If people are expected to see tiny figures, graphs, etc., it will be more difficult, and the screen needs to be larger.

So as a rule of thumb, we’d recommend 1/4 the size if possible. So if the convention services person at the hotel wants to put you into a room shaped like a bowling alley, you’d best look for another room, because your people in the rear of the audience will be way too far back.

If you have no time to develop your video marketing strategy, the following is a useful time management tool.

It produces extraordinary results. It will help you stay on track and free up time so you can eliminate the issue where you have no time to work on that all-important video marketing strategy. Creating this strategy is critical as more and more of your potential clients want to watch videos to see what you have to offer.

You will also be doing the other important things in your business that often fall through the cracks.

If you are actually like me, you’ve got so many things to do, that you forget fifty percent of them. But I’ve got an approach that works nicely…

I created periodic alerts on my mobile phone to remind me to carry out these tasks.

For instance, at Penrose Productions we too need to work on our video marketing strategy. That’s a primary way we communicate who and what we are as a company. So once a week I get a notice to devote 60 minutes to working on whatever aspect of the strategy most applies. This definitely helps overcome the “no time to promote your business” issue.

So, you can obviously use this technique to set aside time to work on your video marketing strategy.

I also set up notifications to help remind me of my “to-do” stuff for both personal and promote your business.This might include exercising, making a date with my wife, testing a new method I have recently read about or reading research into web statistics. And of course, working on our company’s online video marketing strategy.

So Here’s How You Can Gain The Most From This Technique:

Make a checklist of all the little items that tend to escape your memory and/or fall through the gaps, plus those things that pop into your brain at random times.

Pick the ones that have the most important for you. Only you can set the priorities, after all. For example, marketing, selling, finding new vendors, creating brand new goods to promote, searching for new clients to interview; your schedule may differ. These must be key concerns for you so that you do not neglect them. Naturally, we urge you to add “create an online video marketing strategy” to the list.
