Laptop screen overhead projector

fungus said:
I own a laptop with a 15" 1024x768 lcd screen.

I plan on buying an overhead projector to project the screen image on a wall, and an USB tv tuner (avermedia) for video input.



Does anyone have suggestions regarding the projector? What kind of projection quality should I expect from this setup?

Hello :)

From everything I keep reading, using a laptop screen is pretty hard.... but if you do succeed, you should get something of pretty good quality ( I would presume ). Projector?? hmm i would go with something that's always suggested. :) something bright...

dukane 680 for example... :)

But I am wondering if a laptop screen, when not teared apart, would do for this purpose.

The LCD screens we see on this forum are "translucid" LCDs, they allow a light source to be on one side, and the lens to be on the other side to project the picture...

I don't feel like breaking my laptop for this setup.

Did anyone here make a projection system successfully with a laptop screen without tearing it apart to let the light go through it?

It looks like the Dukane projector is a projector with the light coming from under the screen.
