Ordered a precision 130" wide 2.35 centerstage xd screen this week. My theater build is wrapping up soon. Can't wait to light this sucker up! Viewing distance will be about 11.5'.
I had a sample of falcons's horizon material also. I preferred the brightness of the Xd.

It's titled "The Vista" in the dedicated theater forum. I should link it in my signature. Haven't figured out how to do that yet? Anybody know?

Chris - is that advice about generally not exceeding 45 degrees due to a trade off in lower perceived resolution based on the assumption that it is a 1080p projector? I assume so, and that for a 4K projector (with 1080p upscaled to 4K or native 4k content) going past 45 or 50 degrees may be acceptable? I am planning on a 4K projector with 140" 2.40 XD screen and will be viewing from 12.5ft, which provides a 50 degree field of view.

True, the 45 degree viewing field is true for 1080 content. You can go into 45 to even 60 depending on the quality of the source material. Doug Blackburn from Widescreen Review routinely hits 60, but he has some of the most pristine 4k content available, from servers that Sony sends him. I still think frame rate is an issue, as 24fps is too juddery for me at massive viewing angles. I'm not sure where the fake-looking HFR content merges with larger viewing angles for a new normal film experience. It'll likely be an evolutionary drift.

Personal preference is top priority though, as immersion is a quality in and of itself. I simply raise the yellow card when folks break 45 degrees for scope, or 40-45 degrees for 16:9, so they know what's being traded off.

Cheers,
Chris

I have the exact same layout (but DIY screen build) and it's totally fine, I wouldn't change anything!

Does Chris ever answer his PMs or his e-mail? That's the real question.
