I need some help. I'm assisting my son, who just bought a new studio loft, with a projector and screen installation. Here is the layout of the condo:
The screen will be installed in this large window, which is very close to a 16x9 ratio. The inside dimenstions of the window are: 118" wide, 61" high:
We are initially considering a Panasonic PT-AR100u projector due to the brightness and the fact that there will be light coming in from the upper windows (unless we figure out a way to shade them)
Ceilings are 11' tall.
1) what type of screen should we consider? It ideally should be electric and remote controlled.
2) what other projectors should we consider? use will be a mixture of sports, movies and some limited gaming
3) I know this is the projector forum, but if anyone has recommendations for thin, on-wall speakers, I'd appreciate it.
I am thinking the projector needs to be about 14' from the screen and ideally will be hung from the ceiling. (waiting for an electrician to provide estimate and to see if it's feasible)
We are hoping that we can hide the electronics in the front coat closet and just run a single HDMI to the projector.
What else do I need to consider? I'm new to the world of projectors.
Thanks very much,
