Big difference between those two. If you want a big 2.35:1 Screen though, the Panny is the go to choice.
Im thinking 2.35:1 ratio so i can cover up the sides when watching 16:9 and would like it to be about 10 feet wide...Height i can make whatever i need to but i have 8 foot cieling if it matters. Room is 15 by 15 and extremely light controlled...
Thx in advance
As long as you don't plan on two rows of seats, I see any issues here. (...otherwise a Riser would be required...) A Constant Image Height that uses Hand-pull or Electric side curtains for masking is very do-able.
Here are the suggested specs:
13.8" Throw (lens to screen)
Lens height: 14" from Ceiling
Screen sizes 2.35:1 = 49" x 115" <125" diagonal> 16:9 = 49" x 87" <100" diagonal>
Top of screen 12" from ceiling
For your application, the choice of screen (substrate material and paint ) requires a bit more delving into.
- Can you paint the room to accommodate the use? Darker colored walls and even darker Ceiling? Black is not required, just appropriate colors.
- You could do quite well using RS-MaxxMudd LL
- If the wall surface is in excellent condition or can be made to be so...your golden.
- Can you /are you willing and able to consider spraying the screen?
So now you have a basic outline. Start that dedicated thread and let's simply address your specific needs there. No searching, guesswork, assumption, or re-adjusting. Just "doing it".
