I've been going back and forth with this decision for a while now, I'm sure many of you can relate lol
I am going to be purchasing a 144" BD Zero Edge 2.35 screen. I just had a question about what gain to go with on the screen.
The room is somewhat light controlled, at night it is a cave and during the day some light leaks in from rear (curtained) windows. The walls are dark brown, the ceiling is a white drop ceiling.
The projector is a new panasonic ae8000 and the throw distance is 17' 2". The output is plenty bright right now on a 100" 1.1 matte white screen but I don't know if it's bright enough to fill a 144" screen with a .8 gain or if I should go with the 1.4 gain.
What say you, AVSForum? I'm leaning towards the .8 gain for the black levels and contrast improvements but I've just never owned a screen this big and I do not know how it would affect the overall brightness from that throw distance.
Any advice is greatly appreciated... thanks!
