For now my projector is a Mits EW-270U with a great picture. My room is 18x14.5. Most of my movie viewing are Bluray's 2:35 but with a fixed screen everything else will overlap I'm sure. Any suggestions will be appreciated. I don't mind the plain wall it works, but my wife wants a fixed screen to make it look like a dedicated HT, not just a plain wall when it is not being used.
My screen, the FVHD110
, is 117"W x 69"H. That includes
the 3 1/2" frame. What that said, the "viewable area" of the screen is 110"W x 62"H.
I actually moved from a 2.35:1 (Scope Screen) to a 16:9 aspect ratio because the bulk of the content that I watch (Sports, Cable, a lot of movies even...) is in that format. I personally find the black bars on the top and bottom of the screen easier to deal with than the large black bars on the sides of the screens.
I believe the owner of Falcon Screens, Rich (snickers1
), is working on developing some masking panels for his screens. I might hang around to see what he comes up with, or I might fabricate my own down the road.
FYI. I don't have any experience with utilizing an anamorphic lens as my current projector, Panasonic AE-7000U, has auto lens shift.
