My room is 4.7m x 4.7m x 2.6m high.

I am about to buy a Sharp XV-Z30K projector.
Could you please suggest me the biggest screen/best screen size can fit in the room with that projector? (Projector will be mounted on the ceilling)

Should I go for a curved or flat 16x9 fixed screen?
Should I upgrade screen material from Optic White with gain factor 1.2 to Optic Metallic (Grey) with gain factor 2.6 ? Or should I use other material?

Thank you very much!

Not enough data for a good advice. What will be the seating position (distance, angles)? Is the ambient light fully controlled? Is the room treated for light reflections? What is the desirable form-factor (fixed, motorized)? What is your priority - 2D or 3D?

I agree with Elix.
Not enough data...
Suggest checking out the main Z30K thread. A number of us there are using DaLite High power screens. The Z30K isn't a light canon and the high gain screen helps with 3D brightness. However, you need to have reasonable light control from the rear of the room and it helps to mount the Z30k as close to eye level as possible.
