Panasonic ae4000 in ambient light?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi there on avsforum!... I am really interested in a projector, because I am going to be sitting along way from the screen, so I would really like a big screen... only trouble is that I all the day get ambient light. I have windows from where the sun comes, that would shine onto the screen, but I have curtains wich blocks all sunlight, but there gets little in from the sides. Also I have a door openeing with no door on the same wall where the picture would be shown, and I have no door, so I can't close it, and therefore there will come light in the room from that! So my room is not at all that dark, unless it is late night. :-( ...

But I have been reading a good bit about some projector screens where you still would get a good picture in daytime! ... some black ones, some called Black Diamond wich costs a fortune :S ... something about silver, some screens do it yourself with some mixed things in it... etc...

does anyone know if I can with this projector and with a good projector screen get okay to good screen in my enviroment in daytime?... I only need okay to good in daytime, so I can watch what is going on and maybe play a game on my xbox... I usually use it for the night wathcing movies!

cheers everybody and thanks for the help I can get! :-)

I would probably pick the Epson 8500UB over the Panny for the extra brightness. I'm in the process of converting my family room to a "non-dedicated" home theatre. I'm concerned about ambient light as well. Especially since my wife won't let me paint the walls! I'm going to run curtains down both sides of the room. JCPenney's seems to be the best source for affordable curtains with a huge selection. Hope this helps.

I would definitely recommend using a Dalite high power screen for a non dedicated room. I am using one with a JVC RS10 and the results are very good. The panny might be a bit dim for those conditions, but if returnable it is worth a try.
