Looks like you can just flip the lens over by removing the two thumbscrews on either side. You can also try raising the projector an inch or so.

One thing I'm concerned about. Is your projector...

The lens should be tilt-able. You want to make sure it's tilted to match the angle of the light beam.

It is possible to build a transport for the CineVista lens or even push it out of the way for 16:9 content if you go with the universal mount version. You might reach out to Panamorph directly and...

Personally I would probably just put them behind the screen. You will have a somewhat limited soundstage when listening to stereo music, but at least the movie sound won't seem to localize from...

Ideally you wouldn't use any bipoles in an Atmos setup, since the goal is precise panning between speakers. I don't know how big of a deal this will be, though.

Of course, 30 degrees is a...

Tough one. For ease of use, I would definitely second stanger89s comments above regarding both the aspect ratio and using a PC as a source.

A longer throw means that the light beam will pass through the "best" part of the projector lens - the middle. It also generally means higher contrast (at the expense of some brightness). With a...

So much to comment on here.
