Hi
I'm looking for advice on the best DIY screen option for this projector.
The room is 9ft by 16 ft, very dark walls and ceiling, seating distance will be approx 14ft, screen size 106" diag. 16:9, totally light controlled.
I'm open to any option, I have looked through a lot of the threads but to be truthful my head is spinning from all the info and could use something related to this projector.
I did try it out on the white primed walls when I first got it and was quite impressed so I'm looking forward to seeing it on a better screen surface.
We live in the Niagara Falls region so we are close to Buffalo and Niagara Falls area for supplies that may be required.
Thanks in advance to your responses.

Cheers

Stuart

Stewart,...... .

If you mean the "W1200"...here are my comments and suggestions.



  • The PJ, if ceiling mounted, needs to be at a very low profile, ie: close to the ceiling...especially if the ceiling is 8'. If 9' you have about 10" leeway. The W1200 has a whopping 18" Image Offset.
  • Throw distance should be minimized....set to 11' - 3"
  • Screen Material should be 5' x 10' x 6mm Sintra. ( 92" x 52" viewing area...cut dimensions: 96" x 56" ) Screwed directly to wall.
  • Sintra /Comatex / Source: Call Local Sign making Concerns or Wholesale Plastic Sheeting supplies.
  • Spray RS-MaxxMudd "LL"
  • Trim Screen with 3.25" Velvet wrapped MDF Base, overlaying the 2" excess where the screws attach the screen to the wall.

Hi Thanks for the reply.
No the projector is a BenQ W1250, I ordered it through the Canadian Costco up here. Some where I seem to remember reading it was tagged exclusively for Costco based on another model from BenQ
Apart from the throw distances can I still use the same materials and paint per your recommendation?

Cheers

Stuart

Hmmmm...., I did some checking and could find no re-badged BenQ's offered by Costco s in Ontario.

Doesn't mean much..... wink.gif Canada is a strange place. tongue.gif

Yes, the suggestions provided should still be valid, but how's about you provide the skinny as to the PJ's actual specifications. That way, my "Yes" can make me feel more assured of it's validity.

Well that checks out to be a clone of the w1070, being 1080p and all.

Everything else I suggested above remains completely valid.
