Well the screen is finaly mounted and the LED Vango is able to do its stuff.

In the open position so I can access the speakers behind the screen.



You can see the steel frame attached to the wood frame and the heavy duty hinges to take the weight of the screen when in the open position.



Showing the curve.



A pic from the back of the room.



And finally a screen shot with the vango PJ,

Wow!! That screen is HHHUUUGGGEEEE!!! Great work JapanDave, looking great! I used Seymour XD too for my DIY screen. Love having speakers hidden behind the screen.

+1 for the screen. Very nice!

Wow that is phenomenal.

Are you treating the labourers to a movie experience to show them what all their hard work made? I gotta imagine they don't make many of those over there....

I will have to agree with that. Those speakers out front are my old speakers, they are only temporary. The Seymour XD is great!

I did the whole screen myself , except for the wielding the metal frame and b/c the wood frame was so heavy I had to have help mounting it to the metal frame. And I did whip out a movie for them to have a look see!

Outstanding job Dave! That screen looks awesome, along with your room.
post #308 of 602
Dave, do you have any photos of the exterior of the house?
I thought that most homes in Japan were rather small and very close to each other.
post #309 of 602
So question on a curved screens. How does a projector manage the focus when the screen is at differed distances from the lens?

Thanks Art! I have always been inspired by your theater. Just waiting for the chairs to arrive now and I can actually watch a movie in comfort.

Yes, 98% of houses are small here, I am just lucky to have a beautiful family, a nice sized house(almost 4000sq/ft and a nice big block of land. I thank my lucky stars everyday.
I will see what I can dig up with the pics. If not, I will try find some time to get some pics when it is light outside.

Good question, I can't answer that though.

Thanks.

And it has been brought to my attention that some people might not realise that the image below is a photoshoped image of a screen shot shot in the dark superimposed on a pic with the lights on.

I had no ill intentions when posting it, I just though everyone would have known it was a photoshoped pic.

Draw a plan view of a screen (view from the top). Draw a perpendicular line from the center of your screen to some point (like where your projector lens will be). How is the between the center of the screen to the projector lens, the same as the distance from the edge of the screen to the lens?

There's more at work here; but, the distance between the lens and a screen is different at any point on the screen to the lens.

I still have not dialed in the anamorphic lens, but this is a screen shot.

post #318 of 602
That screen is an awesome piece of engineering and I would really like to see more of the construction details. If you have an interest in sharing I'm sure many would be interested in see how the wood work was accomplished.

Great shots.

Thanks Big. I will see if I can put something together with Sketchup and take a few more pics so that people can get an idea of what I did. Give me a little time and I should be able to get something sorted.

My main concern was with the wood expanding and contracting affecting the screen, I did my best to have metal frame and pre dried wood bolted in place to minimize this.

Thanks Mike! Could not have a thread without a screen shot...

Agree with all here, that hinged screen solution is considerably, more than acceptable. . Nice to see someone applying a sensible solution to a common problem without looking for handouts. Stewart, SMX and company principles would be daydreaming of their next yacht purchases with that product.

Thanks Hughman!
I definately racked the brain to come up with an effective solution to this problem. So are saying we will soon see hinged screens from those companies?

There's still time for you to patent and trademark the "Samurai Swinger Screen".

PS: I'm somewhat ignorant to Japanese culture, if that remark is in anyway offensive that wasn't my intent and I apologize.
post #324 of 602
WOW! When I first saw a pic of the curved screen I yelled for my husband to come over and view this fabulous screen. Then I nearly fell off my chair when I read that you created this beautiful piece of art yourself. Bravo!

Great job! So your first row will only be 12' from the screen? Talk about immersive...
