I have been spending some time gathering as much information as i can on these forums. But this is my very first post. As i wil be making my own little movie room with a projector for the very first time. But i am getting a bit lost in all of this. I am based in europe (not uk) wich doesnt help understanding everything correctly.
I have decided to go for a BenQ w1070 placed 13' (4meters) away from the wall that i'll be projecting on. With a screen size of 157" (136" x 77") (4m x 1.9m) Max and maybe going smaller depending on what feels best. http://www.projectorcentral.com/BenQ-W1070-projection-calculator-pro.htm
About the room: i am able to fully darken the room and for now it is coverd in a green wallpaper.
Now turning to the question. Since i'm a student on a budget i was planning on making my own screen and possible doing something with the walls. But i rly cant deduce what i shoud go for when it comes to the screen. There are so many options:
Wooden frame with blacked cloth
Wooden frame with MDF and painted
Wooden frame with spandex
Painting the wall
In my mind the first 2 options seems the most budget friendly for me. But i have no idea if i shoud aim for an as white as possible material , or grey ? or even black? Glossy or mat? These 2 choices also seem the most easy when it comes to available materials, i'm unsure if i can find spandex or good wall paint for projector's in europe
And finnaly the same really comes to mind for the walls. If i stil have some budget left, what collor i shoud give the walls.
The picture quality doesnt have to be the best of the best. Aslong as i can get "good" value for money i'm more then happy, so that i dont end up making stupid mistakes and make the screen out of the worst possible combination there is.
Thank you for taking the time to read,
