I could really use some advice before pulling the trigger on a screen material / manufacturer.
My media room is a converted bedroom and has the following stats:
Ceiling: White / vaulted and walls are 10' high before angle starts
Lighting: Side window (relative to screen) that can be completely blacked out when desired with blinds and curtains.
Screen Size: 100"
Viewing Distance: ~11 feet and mostly straight on or mild angle
Projector: Epson Home Cineman 5010 front / ceiling mounted
Throw Distance: ~13 feet
Budget: $1500 max, preferably $1000 range
2D/3D: I don't really enjoy wearing glasses so I doubt I will watch much 3D content. Maybe my son will as he gets bigger.
FYI: I do not need acoustically transparent fabric. I'm also fairly handy and don't necessarily mind DIY if it gets me better fabric and pricing.
The main priority is night time / totally dark room quality for movie and television show watching. A much-lesser priority is to have it not look terrible when watching an afternoon ball game when I don't want to sit in a pitch black room and want to either have the ceiling lights on or the natural light partially showing through.
Anyone give me thoughts on a good option for this installation? My first thought was a Screen Innovations Performance Series Lunar Grey 0.8 gain as it is around $1200 and should meet most of the demands.
Thanks very much in advance,
