ANSI LUMENS  is the most commonly accepted industry standard brightness measurement. The ANSI lumen rating measures the brightest white that a projector can produce by averaging nine light meter measurements taken across the projected image.

LED LUMENS  is a non-standardized specification cited for some projectors that use an LED light source. It attempts to account for the scientific evidence that LED-driven lumens are perceived as brighter than those from a traditional projection lamp. The number is often meant to imply the brightness of an ANSI Lumen measurement that might be perceived with an equivalently bright lamp-based projector. A true ANSI Lumen measurement will always be lower, sometimes by a factor of two or more.

BUYER BEWARE   Either this projector's brightness specification does not cite an industry-accepted unit of measurement, or according to our calculations it seems unlikely that this projector is capable of producing the manufacturer's cited brightness specification.
