i wanted to pick up on one of the comments that don stewart made on the recent sharp9000 thread.
i have a fully light-controlled smallish room (12' x 16' x 8'). on the 12 foot wall, i have a 80" x 45" studiotek130 screen. the pj (1000 ansi lumens) is about 14' back along the rear wall.
i painted out a shadow box (screen wall plus one foot out onto sides/ceiling in flat black. the rest of the room is off-white, eggshell finish.
my problem is that on a bright scene, i could literally read a book. the entire room is bright. in addition to annoying me (worse and worse, i would add), i would assume i am getting washout on the colors and black from reflected light.
so my question is do paint the entire room flat black (WAF here is stretching), or would a negative gain screen fix the problem?
also, any suggestion for "sopping up" light spray around the screen? the flat black still shows brighter when compared to the screen frame (velux).
