I'm currently helping out specify a cinema and I've had my attention brought to the SMX ProLine Screens by Sim2. I have currently specified a HT3000E and I am looking at the 120 wide ProLine Fixed Frame screen but am a little unsure what the 25ft projection distance will have on the brightness etc. If this is going to be a problem the projector can be ceiling mounted closer rather than recessed into the back wall.
I will be using the T2 lens which gives a throw ratio between 2 and 3. The proposed projector location works out at about 2.6. There is full ambient light control so I was thinking that combined with the projector throw the white screen would be the one to go for?
Below is a work in progress picture of the design and I know it isn't perfect in terms of the seating but I am having to work with the space that there and there is a requirement for as many seats as possible!
(edit - can't do this till i have 3 posts - doh!)
I've not seen many accounts of people using the Sim2's with the SMX screens (although I'm sure this will change when more people in the UK hear about them via Sim2) so was just wondering what everyone's opinions were.
Any advice or tips are gratefully welcomed!
