I am considering a new screen. My room is not a dedicated home theater. During most viewing the lights are all off and the windows are blacked out, but the walls are very light, the ceiling is white and most of the furniture is white. So, ambient light is not the problem, reflected light is the problem. Currently I have elite screens 92" (diagonal) cinegrey, and a new Sony VPL-HW40ES. The Sony is 3x brighter than my previous projector. I would like to go to 100", or maybe 110". The projector lens is 12' 8" back from the screen and cannot go further back (currently about 5" off the back wall).
Looking through the Stewart Screen's offerings it looks like perhaps the Grayhawk RS G4 may be the best option for my room. The main problem I see is that the projector may be too close for a larger screen, given the 1.5x screen to projector Stewart specs.
So, my basic questions are:
1. Is this screen a good match for my room conditions? Or would a different one be better?
2. Is the projector too close for hotspots with 110" screen?
3. My projector is fairly centered, about 4" below the top of the 92" screen. I could drop it down lower probably a foot, and a larger screen would actually be mounted higher on the wall, so the projector would be effectively lower, would that improve hot spotting?
