hi everyone

I just ordered the nec lt 150 and am shopping around for a screen .. I am looking for a anamorphic size ( 54" x 126" ) with black bars on the side so I can bring it to hdtv ( 54" x 96" ) .. so I guess I am looking for a constant heigth type of a screen .. it has to be pull down since it is gonna cover a door .. is there such a thing .. thanks so much ..

ps .. I will be using this strictly with HTPC and using YXY software to control my aspect ratio ..

thanks

So you're looking for a 2.35:1 ratio screen that can be matted to 1.78:1? Good question.

I think Stewart can do custom sizes, but I don't think you can do that ratio in a drop down style, just fixed.

It may be expensive.

I don't think it should be a problem to get a 2.35:1 pull-down screen...Stewart custom manufactures all of their screens so it shouldn't cost much more (if anything). Why don't you give them a call? There's no reason why 2.35:1 shouldn't work in a pull-down.
