I have a Sanyo PLV-Z5 with the following stats:
ANSI lumens: 1100
Contrast (full on/off): 10,000:1
Light Engine: 1280x720, native 16:9, 3x 0.7" PolySi LCD.
Lens and Throw Distance: 2:1 manual zoom/focus lens with manual H/V lens shift. Throws a 100" diagonal 16:9 image from 10.1' to 20.1'
I am looking to hang the projector from the ceiling from about 11 feet back, although I could do less.
From the stats it appears to me, a newbie, that a 100" diagnol screen is best. I can get this, but unless there is noticeable degradation I would prefer to get a 106" screen (Carada - 106 Inch Diagonal Criterion Series Projection Screen - 1.78 to 1) with a 'brilliant white' option (gain of 1.4).
Do you believe there will be a noticeable difference between me getting the 106 versus the 100? As an example will the brightness factor be noticeably worse on a 106 screen with my hardware? Other issues?
