SI Slate 115" Curved? Ideal throw distance?

I have two questions that I am having trouble resolving and would like to hear any input this group may have about the SI Slate screen.

First, is the minimum throw distance for the SI slate is 1.5x width? So for a 115" screen, this would put it at 12.5' (100"W x 1.5 = 150 / 12 = 12.5'). I have see some posts, mostly about the black diamond screen, which has the same min throw, saying a longer throw with this screen is better. Anyone have any experience that could provide some clarity on this? Is 14' better?

Second. On SI's site, under the features of the Zero Edge 5 Slate, they reference "curve". Is this screen curved? Is this an option? Would you do it if it was?

here is the link to the Zero Edge 5 Slate section of their website: http://www.screeninnovations.com/res...e-residential/

Click on features.

Hopefully someone knows, I am driving myself crazy trying to figure this out.


Thanks!

Bryan

The Black Diamond is 1.5x minimum throw for the Slate material it is1.2 x width. However longer throws are better for reduced hot spotting and better screen uniformity with these type of ambient rejecting screens. You can get curved but I wouldn't do it unless you are going to use an anamorphic lens.

Perfect Ellebob. Not going anamorphic so flat it is. I have some room so will target the projector at 14'ish

Thanks for your help!

Post up a review if you go with a slate. I'm interested in one too, but I'm not sure if it's worth the money.
