The official 235:1 screen picture thread. Add your pictures!! - Page 5

post #121 of 179
I need to do some work to improve my room (some kind of drop down black velvet side curtains and ceiling cover from a pelmet) however this is my set up as it stands today. It's a JVC X35 and Isco II lens using a Lumagen Mini3D for calibration and scaling. I use the lens memory function in the X35 so that for 1.85:1 viewing I remove the lens and the lens memory zooms slightly to fill the screen height. I've made side masks using simple clip on black velvet panels which I'll edit this post to add a picture of later.

My screen is a 112" wide 2.35:1 Beamax tab tensioned electric 1.5 gain screen. No texture to speak and the slight gain helps a little with side wall reflections, but the viewing cone isn't restrictive like my previous Greywolf II screen was.

I made the floating shelf myself by welding up a metal frame that could take my weight when installed (partly goes into the wall like a counterbalance) then covered it with MDF and painted it to match the wall.

Dude, that looks awesome! Nice work. I really like the black back wall - a nice contrast. I'm also suffering from lens envy. wink.gif

Very nice Kelvin1965S.

Regarding the size of your screen: I know the mantra for home theater projection in these forums is often "Bigger Is Always Better," but the variable image size set up I use leads me to disagree. There's always some level of sacrifice in terms of image quality as you blow the image up, even with 1080p. Although I can go bigger up to 125" wide or so (and certainly do so sometimes) I often find myself gravitating to my 112" wide pre-set width for scope movies. It seems to be a real sweet spot in terms of feeling large and cinematic, while maximizing image density, clarity, contrast and over all image quality. (At least with the JVC projectors I've owned).

Thanks for your comments Rich & Blastermaster. I can't go any smaller from my throw (over 6 metres from lens to screen) so 112" is the smallest size that works with the lens (JVC at absolute min zoom). In fact a Sony VW50ES wouldn't work due to image size being too big from my throw, so I had to cross it off my list of potential demos when I recently upgraded from the HD350 I had before. Due to the 1.5 gain I can easily hit 15fL even with the iris closed to -8/9 for scope viewing so I'm close to maximum contrast combined with my long throw. I just need to extend that pelmet forwards to incorperate the drop down black velvet curtains to emulate your set up.

Of course there are times when I wish it was bigger, but as you can see there really isn't much room to go larger.

gotta darken your side walls, bra wink.gif otherwise, VERY KICKASS smile.gif
post #129 of 179
I was going to do a grey suede paint on the walls but the blackness of the Tricorn Flat Black on the screenwall and ceilings has convinced me to go darker on the sidewalls. The room will be nearly a black hole within a week or so. cool.gif Also going to add another PB13 Ultra up front. BTW, the screen was purchased from another AVSer for around $400. Its nearly 10 years old and has never been used until this year. Its the Da Snap version so no velvet and there are a few spots on the right of the screen that look to be rubbed off coating (looks like dirt when watching a bright white scene). I may eventually replace it but I'm hesitant to go from a high gain down to something less even though I'm not taking full advantage of the gain (projectors mounted at the top portion of the screen).

Finally got my anamorphic setup finished. I can't believe what an improvement this made over my old 1.78 setup.

Old Screen: 85" wide 1.78 doable board
New Screen: 120" wide 2.35 Seymour AV
Projector: Mits HC9000
Lens: Panamorph FVX200

Wow, I have to say that there are some impressive common height home theaters posted in this thread. Very impressive.

You guys are depressing me.  I've been holding off on even mounting my TV on the wall because of much a perfectionist I am and how 1/100th of a degree off things bug me.  And there you guys go redesigning the universe.  Man oh man.

Avengers is 1.78:1 how is it filling your 2.35 aspect ratio screen? Did you stretch it?

Yes, it was stretched with the lumagen in the 235:1 aspect ratio and the manual stretch via projector to fit the screen smile.gif I can switch back to 16:9 in a sec by pressing the remote on the lumagen.
post #140 of 179
The non linear stretch mode on the Lumagen does a much better job than you would expect such a feature to do.

Thanks! My wife and I put in a lot of tedious work on that star ceiling.

Here's an update to my 130" diag Scope HT (or UltraWide or 2.35:1 or ??) - full 11.3 via Denon 4520CI + Emotiva amp, and added fronts/wides for 11 mains/center/surrounds and 3 subs for LFE give a 11.3 set-up
(I have the IB 4 x 15" line array on Sub1 and both 18" and 15" SI cubes on Sub2, so technically a 11.2 I guess).
Those 18" and 15" SI drivers in sealed cab's along front wall and side wall help flatten the in room response in my 2 row, 8 seat, 11.3 HT.

The panaroma stitching in PSE made the curved look to the ceiling acoustic clouds, they are straight in real world.

Looks beautiful, but IRL on the days you decide to use all of it for displaying, is it uncomfortable to see even a 2.35:1 film cropped down to that relative height?  You've made my 16:9 look like a square box.  Yours is at 16:5.333.

post #145 of 179


8' wide, 2.35:1. Not as large as some here, but it works for me.

Still have not worked on focus .

I don't crop anything ... the whole screen is never used. I went 3:1 because of LR speaker placement considerations.

I didn't know this could be pulled off at home so well.  I'm surprised that the transition point isn't evident.  The human eye is incredibly sensitive to stationary light non uniformity (fixed to a spot on the screen), particularly when you have a moving image background.  Perhaps it's the crummy resolution I'm watching this at over here, but aside from the weird saturation pulsing on the skin tones, I don't see a thing.

It reminds me of how accurate they have to be to get direct lighting backlight or the light guides for edge lights in LCDs to overlap properly.  Even on high end devices they botch it occasionally.
