I have the infamous Optoma HD72 lamp ballast issue. (It lasted 5.5 years before having the issue, so I guess I go lucky). Anyway, I am using this as an opportunity to upgrade. However, I'm trying to keep the price reasonable, thus I'm looking for the poor man's CIH room
I am thinking of the following setup (I currently have a 16:9 100" screen).
1. Panasonic PT-AE4000U projector
2. 125" 2.35:1 Screen (use the zoom feature for 2.35 material)
Here are my room specs:
Size 12' x 15'
Light control: middle of the house, no windows, one door opening (no door) that I can control the light with a curtain
Seating: One row on the back wall (yeah, I know not the best)
(Complete details in the link in my sig)
I am wondering if anyone else has a similar setup. According to the projector calculator it should be able to throw a 16:9 100" and a 2.35 125" image at 13'.
Other than making sure my measurements work, what else should I look for and / or consider?
(Anamorphic CIH? Maybe in my next house
