Embracing the trend for quality al fresco entertaining, outdoors cinema is making a comeback thus providing a modern tribute to the popular drive-in cinemas of decades past. The new 1080p ultra-short throw projector [EH320UST $2999] from Optoma helps transform backyards into high performance outdoors theatre. Offering movie-lovers best-in-class screen time this model has features typically found in more expensive projectors. It is equipped to deliver stunning images in any environment – even on a bright or glary day; and can play movies on a variety of surfaces from canvas tarps to rendered walls.
The other critical factor is a premium sound system specifically designed for outdoors entertaining. The SonArray SR1 outdoor speaker system [$3695] from Sonance can heighten the film experience without upsetting the neighbours. For best results strategically disperse the speakers throughout the outdoors area at different heights. Purpose-built to withstand the elements, the SonArray SR1 has a durable, waterproof design finished to a neutral earth tone that blends seamlessly with garden beds, among foliage and in tree branches. Both products are distributed by Amber Technology.
