Just wanted to start a thread related to the Panasonic PT-AE7000 projector. I am setting up a home theater room with 100% light control (interior room with no windows, but with lighter color carpeting and paint). I would like to use the room for movies and watching TV/sports, so sometimes the lights will be turned on (with a dimmer).
1. What are the screen recommendations? Do I need any special screen material for 3D versus 2D?
2. Is it possible to get a screen with too much gain? How do I know what gain and material I need? (white? grey? 1.3? 2.8? How do I calc this?)
3. What are the competing projectors on the market compared to the PT-AE7000? (any with a motorized zoom feature to go from 16:9 to 2.35:1)
