Hi All,
I'm trying to come up with a decent solution for a large (198") screen, with high ambient light. While its primary purpose is presentations during work hours (which is why there's so much ambient light), I'd also love to use this bluray player at night too!

Pushing an Optoma TH1060p Projector, with a claimed 4500 lumens.

Currently, I've only got the drywall in placeso everything is TBD. Open to advice and recommendations. The product I'm competing with is Goo or
the ScreenPaintSupply.com product

What should I be doing?


PS, this is a x-post from the MaxxMudd thread. Hoping someone will see either one and set me on the right path

Well here I am...sitting in Shawnee, Kansas...waiting to go to the Airport to catch a 6:15 AM Flight back home, and I check the Board and see your plea,

Must be Fate... Destiny........Insomnia?

Oh...so here it is.

I'm doing a 205" diagonal Drywall Screen early next month in San Diego for a Tasting Bar located in a Micro Brewery. (...talk about letting the Fix in the henhouse! )

Using a Optoma 1060p too. (...imagine that...) 24.5' Throw. PJ located at approx. 23' off the Floor, Screen's bottom edge at 12.5' off the Floor

Ambient light is also extreme...so I'm specifying Silver Fire v2.5 5.0

So should you.

The other aforementioned Paints?

You don't want to go there because they will let you down....hard, and painting a near 200" screen that must deal with high ambient light is no project to get caught dealing with anything less than what can give you exactly what you want / need.

For a crap load less coin too.

Hi MississippiMan!

It can't be Insomnia, its either Fate or Destiny... I'm in San Diego.
*cues up Twilight Zone theme*

For the SF 2.5, what was the red 5.0 designate?
I'm going to PM my phone number to you, so when you get out here I can buy you a dinner!

If you're here in January, maybe I can come see the Master at work, if you need an assistant...

You'd be welcome....but since I'll be about 30' up on a Scissor Platform shuffling to and fro,



.....you might be resigned to Moral support. (ie: hoisting up refills for my Glass....er Gun.)

No "ifs" about it. The Ticket is in the Bag. Jan. 6th thru 10th.

And....I'm at liberty to invite any Bona-Fide AVS DIY'er (...or aspiring one...) to join me at the Green Flash Brewery for a tasting and some private consumption on the 9th or 10th while I'm painting, or on the afternoon of the 6th when I arrive and stumble into the place to check out what I'm getting into.

Hey, MM, do you have any experience with the Benq W6000? How does it compare to the 8700ub? There are some good deals on it and I hear it's really bright and great for a large 130" screen. I know some people have preferences for either DLP or LCD, but this is my first projector, so I have no bias.

1. Good PJ w/very acceptable Black Levels for the Lumen output

2. Needs considerable calibration "out of the box" as colors are wildly off. Get a good Calibration Disc though and you can nail down it's full potential.

3. You can get it (...the image...) placed correctly as it's location options are less limited, it having H&V Lens Shift...a rarity for DLPs in it's price range...and up to 3x more.

4. DLP Bulbs are more expensive to replace so it's wise to invest in a Bulb Warranty. The BenQ ain't no Epson...there is no free ride as far as bulb failure after the 90 days Bulb Warranty runs out.
