Dear all

I was wondering. Does a Sharp 9000+Grayhawk combo make any sense ?
The new Sharp is rated:
800 ANSI Lumen; (600 Theater Mode)
If I wanted to use Theatermode (quieter!), wouldn't the 600 ANSI be to dim for the Grayhawk ?
Based on the specs of the Sharp, what 16:9 screen would you go for (in a lightcontroled room)?

I'm wondering the same thing. If it is a good match would it still be acceptable with a minimum amount of daylight creeping through drawn shades and curtains? If not is there an alternative recommendation?

As no one has really seen the Sharp unit yet, it's hard to say. I can tell you that the screen size you decide to go with is going to make a difference. I have seen the Seleco HT200DM, a 650 lumen unit, on a Grayhawk and it looked great. It was also not that large a screen and the room was pitch black, though.

Dear Jason

Are the 650 ANSI for the full 800x600 panel or is this number valid for the 480P mode ?
If I wanted to use a 2.3m (picture)wide screen, would the
lightoutput be enough on a Grayhawk or should I go for a smaller width (2m)?
Obviously if you saw the Seleco HT200Dm with a Panamorph then my question above would be answered.
