Mitsubishi HC7800D and curved screen

Hi guys , i was looking for some info on this and didn't find it , first of all i'm sorry bc maybe it was me that didn't do the search the right way .
I have a Mitsubishi HC7800D projector with 150" flat screen 16:9 and it works great , i've been looking at the 16:9 curved screens and i'm thinking on getting one , my question is? do i need an external lens for my projector to make the picture curved and shoot to the screen or will it work just like that without any external lens? thanks in advance

I think you would need a A lens (cost more than the projector) but not sure, you would have a bow effect with the center of the screen larger than the edges.(might be able to absorb the keystone with the screen borders, but it would be somewhat distorted) Why would any body want a curved screen in the first place, they might look cool with the lights on but aren't very practical in the long run. Just look at the complaints about the curved screen TV's

Smart enough to know better, to old to care
