What is the ideal distance for the pj to be mounted from the screen as far as picture quality goes? I have a flexible setup, and would like to put the pj in the best position possible. I am mounting the top edge of the screen about 4 inches below the ceiling (just below crown molding) and I will be hanging the pj from the 8ft ceiling so achieving the 8 inch or less rule should be easily done.
I assume there are a couple of factors to consider?
1. Do I want the pj behind the audience? I assume "if at all possible?"
2. Farther back equals dimmer image?
3. Extremely close or extremely far will result in distortion so that must be corrected somehow?
I am using a 120 inch fixed "Silver Ticket" screen, cost about $275 and was easy to put together. I think gain is about 1.1?
Thanks for any tips!
