I’ve been reading this forum off and on for about a year and so.
There’s heaps of information to absorb but all it’s left me is confused.
At present, I have a Panasonic PT-AE900E aimed at a pull-down Luma projection screen (which is colored light gray and measures 98" diagonally) and I use the setup to show standard DVDs from the library (domestic funds are tight at the moment). Even though the screen is unfurled only twice every week, there are some minor “waves” in the screen starting to appear.
The living room is approximately 30 ft x 13ft and the distance between projector and screen is 12 ft and, once the curtains are fully drawn, there is barely any light entering the room when movies are shown at night at weekends.
Bearing in mind that funds are extremely limited, ideally, what I’d like is a lightweight screen (which can be lifted or rolled on a stand into position when required) and capable of displaying a picture equal to or better than the existing Luma screen.
What do you suggest?
