I just finished building my man cave, and am trying to do this right the first time.
I just bought a Panny AE-8000U and have it mounted on the ceiling and is projecting a 120" 16:9 picture on the painted wall. My seating is about 15' from the wall
The room has a lot of ambient light (no direct sun) due to double french doors on the side going out to the pool which I would rather not curtain off (I want to watch my wife swim and sunbathe while I watch football).
It appears the Silver Fire 2.5 mix would be perfect for my situation.
I was thinking of using a Hue of 5 because of the brightness of the projector and the amount of ambient light. Any thoughts?
Thank you for your response. Its nice to hear confirmation from the expert.
About the projector location, I wondered if the throw distance played into the formula somehow, but the Panny manual didn't mention anything. Its not too late to move the projector, but would you mind explaining the physics (or posting a link) of projector throw distance and how it affects the image?
I looked up my panny on the brightness calculator and sure enough, the brightness increases 3x if I move it forward. So I'll be moving it tonight.
Boy am I glad you said something! Also, I wonder why this doesn't come up in the panny manual, unless its buried somewhere. I would think they would put this on the front page because its so important.
Good day guys. I am from Russia and I do not know your language . You have to use a translator , so if something I do not understand that this is due to language problems .
In general , reviewed a lot of stuff on the composition of the paint for the gray screen, but did not find anything good . And now came across your forum , was very interested in the composition of which you color screens "SILVER FIRE V2.5"
We I do not find these colors and this is what I think they can be replaced .
As I understand it's just Basitss Liquitex acrylic paint ( that is, I can replace it with another one with the same color ) ?
Minwax Polycrylic - Satin Finish is simply white acrylic paint , or what is it?
BEHR Premium Plus Ultra is too white acrylic paint ?
Rustoleum Metallic Accents - White Pearl is how I understood nail with the addition of metal particles?
Please explain whether you can replace them with equivalents.
Thank you all .
Thanks for the quick reply. I just eochu understand the purpose of your components that would understand what to look at.
I certainly can order online but it is expensive and time, that I want to find an alternative.
Nemogli would you give me a brief description of each component and the links that I have not found anything intelligible.
