What is a Movie Projector?

A projector is an opto-mechanical electronic machine that displays pictures on a large screen. It is basically an output device as per the computer technology. On the other hand, a movie projector is a similar kind of device which is capable of motion films. You can use a projector at any place if you have any object to project the output on. The best output quality can be only obtained if the brightness of the projection is better than the light in the surroundings. The materials inside the projectors are much similar to the movie cameras but there are only the illumination and audio output devices are the extra add on.

History of Projectors

There was a time when people had to go to movie theatres to watch movies. There were lesser prevalence of televisions in the houses. Thus people used to get tickets to get into the movie theatres. In the theatres there used to be a large curtain where the videos used to get projected. In the earlier days, there were lance projectors where movie rills were moved in front of light behind a lance.

The first-ever projector was invented in the year 1879 by a famous British photographer named Eadweard Muybridge. The machine was named zoopraxiscope. This machine was used to project images from a glass disk in rapid succession so that it can generate an illusion of moving images. In the gathering of the inventors, Louis Le Prince invented one of the modern-day projectors with 16 lenses. But the most successful movie projector was made by Lumière brothers in 1894, and this device was publicly screened. The first commercial movie was screened using this device. The decline of the film projectors started in the year 1999 while the invention of digital projectors came in front. Through further innovations, in 2006 some projectors were made to project movies having resolution up to 4k.
