Hey all - about to pull the trigger on equipment purchase and need some validation and guidance.
Have a room with controlled lighting - no windows.
Was thinking about Epson 5020 or 5030. Throw will be about 14 ft and screen will be 100 inches.
Some my thoughts ...
1) I am not sure how to go about choosing a projector mount and what considerations there are.
2) I need to choose a motorized screen. I was thinking a 1.0 or 1.1 gain white screen. How do I choose?
3) My original budget was going to be around $1000 for a screen - I saw a 100 inch Elite Screens Cinetension 2 screen However, my local Magnolia suggested a budge almost double that. I understand the law of diminishing returns - what am I missing with a budge of only $1000 and why would I want to spend $2000 given the projector I am interested in.
4) I want to use a software remote control product like iRule or similar. I am scared by the lack of IP control of the Epson projector and a screen. Should I be intimidated by this?
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
