Vertical is fine, horizontal lens shift will seriously affect your image geometry.

Fantastic post.

I've seen the DolbyVision demo and you are right - it's a paradigm change.

That looks like an older plate with the support chains. Still, it should work as long as it is for the same projector model. What was it purchased for? Hole patterns are sometimes projector...
