Hi guys. I have done my reading and I am still confused as to which option is best for me. I have the Pany 900 and enough wall space for up to 130", although I won't go that big. Besides, according to the calculator, I would need a screen gain of 1.5:1 in order to have enough brightness. I have been projecting 106" onto a regular dining room wall for the past year with success but ambient light viewing is weak.
As as I see, given the size I hope to achieve, my options are as follows:
1- Sintra board cut from a 5 x 10 to 60" x 107" (122" diagonal)
2- Wilson art laminate board (Designer White) cut to same size
3- Build a wooden frame and stretch blackout cloth
Option #1 would certain cost more but would it give me additional options for painting, which might yield the 1.3:1 gain I would need? I believe the cost they quoted me from a local sign supply shop, with delivery and cut to size above was around $90. Would love suggestions on a simple paint solution if I go the Sintra route at that size.
While I am not an expert woodworker, I'm sure I could construct a basic frame and stretch blackout cloth to size, although it appears to only come in smaller sizes than I need.
Still researching Wilson Art some more and I am going to look for a dealer locally (San Jose). Would appreciate thoughts on best match for the Pany 900 and potential paint options.
