This post will explain the projector parts and their functions plainly and simply.

The main parts of a projector include the lens, projector chip, screen, light source, condenser, and reflector. 

The functions of each component are as follows.

  • Lens

It is equivalent to a convex lens.

  • Projection Chip

It can be viewed as an object.

  • Screen

It is equivalent to a screen receiving lights.

  • Light source

The light source is used to illuminate the “object” (projection chip).   

  • Condenser

The condenser is composed of two threaded lenses, which are used to increase the concentrating area, increasing the brightness of the projection.

  • Reflector

The reflector is a plane mirror. Its role is to reflect the light shining on the projection chip to the screen.
