That applies to the format I have (1.78 screen with CIW mask). I use the Lumagen Radiance's electronic image shift. Projector lens shift could also work. A third option would be to move the bottom of the screen up when moving the mask down.

For the 2.35 screen that mycview2 was asking about, you'd need to zoom or scale, not shift, when changing ARs.

Just made the jump to AT Screen- Center Stage-UF

Just got home from Fedex Freight and getting ready to open things up. 2.0:1 Aspect ratio ~130" Diagonal. Going from a 2.35:1 128"Diagonal Carada Brilliant White. By the way Projector is Panny 8000. Excited to finally be able to reposition the center channel and subs

Thanks much Chris and Jon!

Q on Harmony Elite control IR control. I've got the RP60 230V Controller, LVT-BUS JP6 and IR Sensor and I'm in the process of setting it up over the next couple of weeks. Trigger is working well, but can I confirm what device to add to a Logitech Harmony Elite to trigger UP and Down for the screen? Is it the ESI RP-60?
Thanks
Nathan

Safest bet is to learn the command from the screen remote. I've been using Harmony remotes for the last 12 years, and in my motorized screen setups, I had to learn the command in order for it to work properly. There are usually three commands: up, stop, and down.

I have UF with a Panny 8000, as well. You're going to love UF. Nothing but rave reviews from me.

Unfortunately I don't have a remote to learn from...

As earlier described in this thread, the UF material isn't very good for behind the screen lighting to reveal the speakers. I laid down a 16' LED light strip behind the screen and a velvet wrapped 2X2. I doubled the LED light back so I had two runs of the lighting casting on the speakers. Although it doesn't reveal the speakers well, it casts a pretty cool effect, especially when set at a 7 color fade. If I fire up the star ceiling with the LED's, the rear speakers with the LED's and the LED's behind the screen, it gives a pretty cool intro to the theater for folks that are seeing it for the first time. The rainbow effect in the pano picture on the bottom is due to the way the phone took the picture.

Jerry,

Looks great. How close are your speakers to the screen?

They are roughly 5-6" behind the screen.

I'm very happy to soon join the Seymour Center Stage XD crowd. I just purchased an XD screen from Jon yesterday - great customer service!


I plan a ~158" diagonal (146" x 62) 2.35 screen to fill the stage in the pic below. I will use 1x4 poplar or maple for a DIY frame. I have an Epson 5040UB (4K eShift) projector, currently projecting on a 135" 16x9 Elite screen in another room. Can't wait to get the new screen built - will post after pics when completed.
