 A slide projector is a device for showing photographic slides.

35 mm slide projectors, direct descendants of the larger-format magic lantern, first came into widespread use during the 1950s as a form of  home entertainment; family members and friends would gather to view slide shows, which typically consisted of slides snapped during vacations and at family events. 

Slide projectors were also widely used in Business events, educational and other institutional settings. 

With large Multiple projector slide shows becoming popular in the late 80’s.

Photographic film slides and projectors have since the early 90’s been replaced in the events industry by image files on digital media such as computers shown on a projection screen, which allow for a great deal more flexibility with instant changes and updates.

Today we enjoy a whole lot more creativity and brightness with the much evolved data projector types such as the Christie LX-605 [6000 ANSI Lumen].
