I have a Vidikron Model 30 720p projector that I am very pleased with the picture and cant find any reasons to replace it right now with a 1080p projector. I am looking at the Elite Lunette curve screen 110" 16:9 and was wondering if the curved screen would pose any issues with this projector as far as the image (moire)? Going forward can anyone tell me if Elite has a AT material that would work with a 720p projector and the Lunette curve or should I focus on a traditional flat screen non AT?

Need help with a decision contractors are scheduled in 2 weeks!!! confused.gif

Your image will be out of focus. From what I recall, curved screens were to be used with a special lens
Read here or google "Lens for curved screen"

Thanks this was very informative. It supports what I heard and read on other forums. What baffles me is how come Elite choose to carry the curve screen in the 16:9 format? So I am now curious to know what special lens would make this work?
