Comparing the AtmosKIT, AtmosKIT Plus, and the AtmosKIT HD

When AtmosFX launched the AtmosKIT and AtmosKIT Plus in partnership with ViewSonic three years ago, they quickly became the easiest all-in-one ways to get started in the wonderful world of digital decorating. Now, in addition to those two trend-setters, there is another way to decorate for the Christmas season that is just as easy. Or maybe easiest-er?

No matter how you describe it, the AtmosKIT HD is here. And we know you are going to love what this new all-in-one kit has to offer.

You might be asking yourself, “Self? What is the difference between these kits? And how can I decide which one(s) fit my own unique decorating needs?” No need to worry – this article will share the important differences between all three so you can decide for yourself.

Comparing the three AtmosKITs

First, let’s start with what all three have in common. All of the all-in-one kits come with a ViewSonic projector (and the company’s three-year warranty), USB key with 12 Christmas, year--round, or Halloween AtmosFX Decorations, AtmosFX Window Projection Material and a $20 AtmosFX coupon that you can use towards purchasing more decorations. (And to be clear: They do not have to be just Christmas-themed decorations!)
That means that all of the kits provide everything you need to get you decorating in a matter of minutes. There are some key differences between the kits. It is the type of ViewSonic projector and the size of the AtmosFX Window Projection Material.
  • The new AtmosKIT HD comes with the ViewSonic M2e LED high-definition projector. This is a dynamo of a projector – bright and powerful as it is tiny. Its native resolution is true HD (1920x1080) and projects 1000 LED lumens, making it great for larger and outdoor decoration displays.

    The M2e also has all the cool features you expect from ViewSonic, such as high-end Harmon Kardon speakers, remote control, smart WiFi connectivity and Bluetooth to connect to audio speakers. The M2e also features a horizontal keystone in addition to a vertical keystone, which gives you an even greater range of placement options.

    Because decorators are more likely to use this powerful projector in spaces where they want to go BIG, we have included AtmosFX Window Projection Material XL in the kit. This material is exactly the same as AtmosFX’s standard material – just larger. Like 5.5-foot-by-9-foot large!

  • The AtmosKIT Plus comes with the ViewSonic M1+ ultra-portable LED short-throw projector. It projects at 300 LED lumens. It also has high-end Harmon Kardon speakers, WiFi connectivity, Bluetooth capability and remote control. This projector is incredibly small and powered by a rechargeable battery, which makes it a great option for decorating in smaller spaces, or when you want to hide your projector in surprising places.

    The AtmosKIT Plus comes with standard-size AtmosFX Window Projection Material, which measures 4-foot-by-6-foot.

  • The AtmosKIT comes with the ViewSonic M1 Mini Plus, an ultra-portable LED short-throw projector. It projects 120 LED lumens. This is a great budget-friendly projector that weighs less than 1 pound, has smart WiFi connectivity and Bluetooth to connect to audio speakers. It also comes with a remote control and three different colored panels that you can swap out on the projector itself. It also  comes with standard-size AtmosFX Window Projection Material, which measures 4-foot-by-6-foot.

Are the decorations different in the all-in-one kits?

There is one more key distinction to make about how the AtmosKIT HD differs from the other two all-in-one kits. In the case of the new AtmosKIT HD, there is only one version: A kit packed with Halloween AtmosFX Decorations. Why? Because Christmas is coming up soon, and we know so many of you are ready to go all-in on the holiday!

As for the AtmosFX Decorations in the other two kits, there are multiple variants: Halloween, Christmas and All-Season. The titles convey the difference, though it is worth mentioning that the All-Season kit has decorations celebrating not only Christmas and Halloween, but also Easter, 4th of July, Thanksgiving and more. If you are considering using either the AtmosKIT or the AtmosKIT Plus for Halloween decorating, make sure you select the one with Halloween in the name!
That said, it is important to remember that, no matter which one you select, you are not limited to the decorations included in the kit. Consider the included AtmosFX Decorations as simply a starting point; a way to wet the appetite. There are hundreds upon hundreds of AtmosFX Decorations that can be instantly downloaded for use in any of the kits!

What decorations are in the all-in-one Christmas kits?

The AtmosKIT Christmas, the AtmosKIT Plus Christmas and the AtmosKIT HD Christmas feature a mix of winter holiday decorations. They are:

Don’t forget each kit also comes with a $20 coupon good towards purchasing additional AtmosFX Decorations!

Which all-in-one projector kit is best for you?

Every decorator will have different needs and different ways they want to decorate. That is good news, because all of the kits are small and powerful, and have endless uses! And, as we have said before, they all are  protected by ViewSonic’s three-year warranty.
