If you don’t have a projector, you can usually rent a projector from your local audio- visual or computer rental company. Daily rates usually run between, $100 - $300. Also, check with the venue you’ll be screening at. Schools, libraries, art galleries, and sometimes, even coffee shops have projectors.
A DVD player or computer is also required for playing video from a projector. If you are planning to use a computer or laptop, please make sure that the projector has the correct inputs. Not all projectors are compatible with computers.
You can rent a screen or just use a blank even surface, such as a white wall, side of a building, or white sheet. You will also need a sound system. Check to see if the location where you plan to project at has a sound system. If so, find out what types of inputs they support.
Most importantly, BEFORE your event, test all the equipment and your DVD to make sure everything is compatible, you have the correct cables and connections, and the equipment is working properly.
