Hi all

The new Ben q 1080st has caught my eye in terms of price and reviews. I am going to get one purely for use as a home theater/xbox entertainment unit.

I am also going to be building a gaming PC and have become intruiged as to whether I can have some kind of "eyefinity"/dual projector setup for games using two of these babies without having issues with a seam down the center of the FOV.

I was originally going to get 3xLCD screens and do an eyefinity setup however something tells me that I may be able to get the same effect across a larger surface using only two short throw projectors.

Any thoughts?

Cheers

I don't think you could pull this off with this projector since there is no lens shift.

Thanks for your reply.

So it is possible?

Hmm...time to delve back into those projector reviews.

I don't see why it wouldn't be doable. Read this thread http://www.avsforum.com/t/1391820/triple-screen-gaming-movie-setup. It should give you a starting point for research.
