New to this whole outdoor projection idea.
I have a NECVT800 that I run HDMI into. I currently have it downstairs in my theatre room and it looks well even with the lights on. I am in the process of making an outdoor projection screen and I have some concerns?
Since this is my first time and I live up in Canada where the weather is unstable, I thought I would try a screen before I invest in Carls Place for a screen. I bought some material from hometex.ca "White BackDrop Fabric" and I was thinking of double layering it. I bought over double the size so I can double it up. I was also going to grommet it and use bungees to attach it to my screen. I wasn't going to sew the 3 sides as I thought I would grommet right through both sheets of fabric and that will hold the screen together? I am not looking for 1080p video quality, im just looking for something decent that the kids will enjoy.
Also, I want to get my screen to 155" as that's what I am building the stand for. Can anyone help me out with how far a throw I have to be and if 155" is even suitable for my projector? I did find a website that mentioned to get to 155" I need to be at 18.2 feet away? So, that's what I was going to shoot for. My screen is going to stay on the frame, but the frame legs will come off for storage.
Just hoping I can get some feedback on this and hopefully in a few months I can have my set up ready to roll when the snow disappears.
I am already working on my PSA for my video, with add in clips of myself, and also have the wife making movie tickets for the opening night spectacular.
Thanks in advance
