Why Are Projectors Suitable For Elderly Users?
By XGIMI Tech - 2022-05
Are Projectors Good For Seniors?
Usually, seniors have TVs and computers to keep them company which ends up being confusing and too complicated for them due to the processes involved in their setup and use. In addition, TV and computer screens emit LED lights which enter the eyes directly and can be damaging, especially for older people. Unlike TVs and computer displays, projectors help reduce blue light exposure as the lights they emit do not enter the eyes directly, thus protecting the viewer's eyesight.
Smart projectors, on the other hand, are pretty easy to set up, thanks to certain automated technology features like autofocus and auto keystone correction, which simplify usability. Staying entertained with smart projectors is also an easy task as they come with Android TV, which offers access to unlimited entertainment through numerous apps.
In this article, we will examine why smart projectors are ideal for elderly users. We will also discuss XGIMI's HORIZON Pro, HORIZON, and Elfin and the fantastic features that make them easy to use and set up for any user, old or young.
What Makes A Smart Projector Excellent For Elderly Users?
A smart projector is ideal for viewing by older people regardless of whether it is a 4K home projector or a 1080p home projector. The following reasons make smart projectors excellent for seniors:
Smart projectors are suitable for older adults as they are pretty easy to set up compared to regular TV with fewer wires involved and a quick boot system. Some projectors also have automated technology that adjusts their screens and avoids obstacles in the projection area automatically.
Using a smart projector is excellent for the elderly because it helps protect their eye health as the projector's light source does not directly enter the pupils. The light source is projected on the device's screen first, so viewers can watch the reflected light on the screen. It is similar to staring at the moon, thus reducing viewers' exposure to harmful blue light.
Smart projectors also have large screens, 60-200", eliminating the need for viewers to sit too close to see clearly. Since viewers can watch clearly from a distance, their contact with the projector's light is reduced, making them great for older adults.
The ideal projectors have features that provide built-in and unlimited entertainment. They come with Android TV ™, which supports over 5000 streaming apps like Hulu, HBO Max, and Disney+ so that seniors can easily access shows like Trust and Homeland and their favorite content.
In addition, these projectors come with a Chromecast built-in, which allows viewers to cast various content directly to the projector from Apple and Android devices so seniors can easily watch videos on the projector’s larger screen instead of on their smartphones. Some projectors also come with Google Assistant, so viewers can use voice commands to access their favorite content.
