Screen question/recommendation  

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Greetings to all. First post here. I read a little about DIY screens on the forum and think this is a good option for me. Thanks for all the GREAT ideas!!! Presently, I am thinking of purchasing a Sony VW10HT LCD projector. I have a reletively small living/HT room. Viewing/projecting distance for projector and me to be about 12 feet. Originally thinking of Da-lite pull down screen, but heard problems with waves in screen, hot spots, etc. Making frame and mounting fabric/blackout material are all options. My room is small 15' x 12' and wonder how/where I would store screen? If I mount to ceiling and fold toward ceiling when not in use will look bad. If I place hooks in ceiling, where do I store/conceal screen after removal?

Questions are:
1. Where/how do I mount/store screen so room still looks good.
2. Recommendation of screen material for LCD projector, looks like "blackout" material one of the best.

George Welcome,
There are pictures on forum of 2 interesting setups.One was furling jib type that went from left to right with tension.My favorite was concealed behind sofa on floor and pulled up to 2 ceiling hooks to use.
good luck.
