(New here. Please excuse any breach in protocol in asking this question. I've searched the forum, but can't find anything that addresses my question.)
I'm looking to replace my Sanyo PLV-Z4 with the Panasonic PT-AE8000U, and I have a question about brightness. My theater is completely light controlled. The projector is mounted 14' 9" from a 118" (diagonal) Carada Brilliant White screen (1.4 gain). There are three rows of seats which view from 13, 19, and 25 feet. But, the Projector Calculator Pro at Projector Central indicates that the image is too bright. And unfortunately, a REALLY bright screen will give me a headache.
So, my question is: Will there be enough control over the image (through Normal, ECO, REC709, or one of the Cinema modes, and/or the brightness control) to pull back the projector's brightness in 2D mode to make the image tolerable?
