I`m ceiling mounting my Sony 1271 and have used PJcalc to determine the distance for an 84" Screen but I`m having a problem deciding on the size of screen to purchase.
Obviously it has to be at least 84" wide, but what depth? The screen needs to be a ceiling mounted pull down due to the room shape and other considerations.
But looking at the diagrams produced from PJCalc at 16:9 the screen would need to be 62" from the top of the projector, however if it is ceiling mounted then I have to take into account the depth of the mounting bracket itself which is about 12" giving a depth of 74". Am I right in this conclusion?
If so then I cannot seem to be able to find a suitable screen of approx these dimensions.
I can get Dalite Video Spectra screens at 152 x 203cm, 175 x 234cm, 114 x 203cm, 132 x 234cm, 213 x 213cm and 244 x 244cm. The company selling these has ssaid that it may be possible to have the screen manufactured with an extra 12" or so of black material at the top of the screen.
Have you and recommendations?
