The blend zone can be seen in certain scenes , especially the higher % white scenes like in Oblivion pictures you can see it. the issue is that none of the
Edge Blending companies want to add point specific Gamma in the blend zone. If they added say an adjustment for each IRE at a 21 point step it be totally seamless .

You mean a per-pixel gamma LUT of some kind?  Or perhaps a per vertical line?

The Tv-One units do have a gamma adjustment for the blend zone , but you know how hard it is to match the gamma level at each IRE between two Projectors .
It is very very hard, and with CRT you have to deal with the drop of of brightness on the edges. So if they changed the Global Blend Zone gamma adjustment they now all
use and add 10 or 20 pouts for each IRE, like 5%, 10% 20% all the way to 100% then the blend
zone would truly be invisible. It be even better to add that to RGB % intensities as well, but that is pushing it wink.gif

I know it can be done but getting some one to do it is the tricky part.

Still a work in progress but loving everything so far.

Here is the equipment list:

JVC RS4810 projector
Denon X4000 AVR
Polk RTI series in 7.2 configuration
Carada Brilliant White 144" 2.35 Criterion screen
24TB HTPC
Panasonic Blu Ray

Future plans:
Emotiva XPA-5
Curtains
9.3 speaker setup (near field subwoofer for first row
Media closet to have all equipment out of the room

Loving the pictures on this thread. It has given me so many ideas and really convinced me that 2.35 is the way to go. I would love to hear everyone's opinion on my set up.

Isantus, I sent you a PM. I'm interested to find out a couple things about your setup. Looks awesome, BTW.

Not sure how to post larger pictures as I selected for it to post the largest size available. It seems I can figure out the HT stuff but I can't figure out how to post pictures regarding it. rolleyes.gif

Pics feature Star Wars de-specialized 2.5 (720p AVCHD)

Been meaning to post these for a bit now. This room is still very much a work in progress. Got a lot done this summer, but as you all know life gets in the way. It is very much a functioning room that we enjoy, but still has some way to go.

120" Carada 2.35 screen with 1.0 gain
Epson 8350 projector (zooming)
Lumagen Radiance Mini-3D processor
Pioneer VSX 1020k
Polk Monitors 65T
Polk C25
Former owner installed in-wall surrounds by polk. Not sure of the model, but they do the job very nicely!

Room measures 21.75 long, 13.25 wide, and 7.5 high. Black wall is painted with theatrical production black. Very, very flat and sucks up all overspill.

I am coming from a much smaller room and have been adding new pieces throughout the summer. At Christmas I need to upgrade my old 8" sub. Next year the plan is to replace ceiling tiles with black ones, and redo a better lighting scheme. I would like to add a riser in the back with a small wet bar in the corner. At that point I will build a shelving unit in the back as well to house all the equipment. Black curtains are being made as we speak to assist with masking, and to add a nice effect to the front wall.

Looks terrific...

...except, dude, you go to all that trouble to create a black screen wall and then throw on white AC outlets?

Or, are darker AC covers on the to-do-list?

I notice that everybody sets up their projection screens with the bottom at waist height or above.

 

I prefer placing the bottom of the screen at 100mm above "floor level", which creates a much more immersive experience with the picture. You are on the edge of the field in football games, with the best seat in the house on all plays.

 

I build Cinemas in townships and rural areas in South Africa, and also have a Home Cinema/Theatre installation company.

I also favor a fairly low-set screen, finding it more immersive. I put mine as low as it could go (Only limited by my center channel which is low to the ground). Occasionally some people upon just walking into the room (especially those interested in home theater) remark "do you really like the screen that low?" Then I say, sit down on the sofa and lets watch something." As soon as the picture comes on and the image is perfectly at eye level, drawing you right in, they get it.

I place my centre speakers above the screen. I figure it's got dialogue and the mouth on muff actors it's at the top of the body.
I also double up on my speakers in the cinemas to give a better spread of each of the 9 channels. Cinema dimensions 12m by 5m by 3m high. Seats tiered up 100mm per row. 10 rows of 6 seats = 60 seats.

Are these going to be DCI compliant projectors?

Or what's the business model, Blu Ray's, Satellite feed?

Thanks for the interest and the questions,

 

We are using standard NEC LED projectors. We are busy working on going to "Glasses Free 3D" in conjunction with a prof at University of Johannesburg's Video Dept.

 

We are placing the movies onto a hard drive which is locked inside a safe with a Media Player. (only HDMI output, to prevent piracy).  No BluRay or DVD players and no network access to the media stream by the cinemas.  The cinema can only "play" any movie they choose which is already on the media system.  Media system is updated by the Holding Company, - me.

 

The Sound System is Onkyo 9.2 THX with doubled speakers on each channel.  Surround Sound is Awesome in the Cinema due to the acoustics being totally neutral. You can talk to each other at normal voice level, from the front to the far back corner of the cinema.   

 

See www.facebook.com/reagilecinema.

 

Remember, its a Job Creation Project for poor people in South Africa, and an education centre, and a Policing centre, and an Aid Centre, with 5 x 3m outdoor screens in front of a 12m x 5m stage situated on the roof.

The Outdoor screens are used for "Free" Sports, News and Movies & Shorts created by the Local community film makers.

 

We are just trying to get around the corruption by certain individuals in government departments. (Only question they have is "Whats in it for ME ?).

 

John

There's nothing like watching a movie the way it was meant to be. You can see my tiny 26" TV, to the left of the stand, that I move when I use the projector. Sure makes the projector screen seem huge in comparison.

Here is our home cinema. (Please excuse the cruddy quality of these cell phone pictures.) We moved to the US in 2011 and I had to dismantle my big screen set up and sell it all off in the move. As of last December I am back up and running! I almost have it how I want it, there are still a few details I have to iron out (like vertical stretch for BD-J 3D discs) but otherwise I am satisfied. The last thing I added was a pair of black velvet side panels for 16:9 content. I’m surprised at how much they improve the viewing experience.

Re-worked my projector setup. Used to have the projector shelf mounted. Now using a Chief RPMA020 mount. Made a custom plate to attached the Prismasonic slide using 3/8" thick aluminum plate and some 1/4" thick 2" wide aluminum channel. Works very well. Everything is rock solid.


I need to touch up my ceiling where I took down the old offset mount that went to my son's gaming projector. Here is what the front of the room looks like:

Scope with masking open.


16:9 with masking closed.

Added:
The wall panels are actually dark gray. The black walls and my photography skills (lack of) make them look almost white. smile.gif
