Can't decide which projector to get

First off, thanks to everyone on this site for all the great information. I have been researching this for 6 months and still can't decide on a projector.

We have a dedicated theater room 18x28 and the seats are 10 to 24 feet from the screen. We will use this for a lot of TV, but also for movies. The room has no windows, but we plan to use it a lot with some lights on. I like the concept of CIH, and think I will go with a 133" 2.35 Black Diamond screen.

Budget is around $5k for the projector and I am trying to get a good picture for the large screen, good lamp for viewing with lights on and lens memory for zooming between formats.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If planning on going with CIH using lens memory, then your choices are really limited to the JVC line with that budget. If also buying a video Processor like the Lumagen, then you would be able to look at Sony and Epson. Another option would be to use an A-lens like the CineVista. All of these options are available to you at your price point. Give us a call and we can go over the advantages and disadvantages of each method.
