I'm really trying to get a projector to work in my new living space, but having trouble. Here's the details, maybe you can help with some ideas/products...
(the attached picture illustrates what I describe below)
The room is about 28.5 feet deep with very high vaulted ceilings. At the back of the room, about 9 feet up is a cutout section. I already own an 8350, which has lens shift and a nice zoom. The problem is, having the project in that space projects too large of an image. I need to get the lens approx 23" closer. (DAMN)
- I first thought of a sliding shelf that the projector would sit on, and then I could slide it out when using. Still an option, but that's a pretty good load for that extension.
- I ran across the many short-throw projector arms. I thought I could mount one on the left side of the alcove, and then swing it out when in use (not terrible practical because it's high up, but I'm desperate). The issue with this is that most of the arms don't articulate at the base.
----Something like this looked good, but where it attaches at the wall doesn't seem to articulate: http://www.standsandmounts.com/Peerl...TA-2955-W.aspx
----I think I would need something like this discontinued arm: http://www.memory-express.co.uk/p/440212
Any thoughts or suggestions? (on any of my ideas or a new one) I can't figure out the right solution. The 8350 is a BIG machine, so that is tricky as well. I'd be willing to purchase a projector that would project a smaller image at that length and has lens shift, which would solve the problem, but there doesn't seem to be anything.
I really appreciate the help.
