I have a 119 inch 16x9 screen that is getting pretty old. 13 years maybe. I was always interested in a CIH screen, but was always turned off by the lens cost and hassle. I updated my projector a couple times over the years and now have a JVC 1080p (an x30 or something from 2011).
I just ran a test of a BR where I zoomed it in and adjusted the height to play a 1.235 movie at the full height. It looks fine to me, so i doubt I'd want to spring for a lens.
With that in mind, what would a good screen be to project to a 60inch or so high screen?
I'm running a da-lite screen with a 1.3 gain. I was never really happy with how easily this thing got smudges and how hard it is to clean. I think its actually not recommended to clean it. I have a motorized masking system now, but would probably just just skip that and do an easy manual mask that I take off for movies. 80%+ of my watching is 16x9, so the scope would be for big occasion movies. I'd rather put the $$ towards a good screen material than fancy motors and lenses.
Any help would be appreciated.
