I'm planning on a 96" or 104" Carada screen with AE900U for our mixed use basement. Room is light-controlled with dimmers controlling 3 areas: front - viewing area, middle - seating area and rear - other activities (ie. pool table, etc).
I can have front and middle lights off and vary the degree of light behind the projector. No other light sources to worry about. While we will likely spend most time with lights fully off, I recognize there will be times when we would like to have some light in rear activity area at same time as using the PJ.
Couple of questions:
1). Does anyone else have any experience with using a Carada screen (or AE900U...I know this is probably wrong thread for that question) in similar partial light set-ups? If so, wondered how they addressed the issue. I realize there is likely a trade-off between degree of light and PQ but I'm trying to get a sense of where this becomes generally unexceptable and what options exist to mitigate the consequences.
2). For experienced Carada screen owners, I wondered which of BW or CCW they would recommend?
3). For those using a Carada screen with the AE900U, wondered if anyone can give me recommendations on ideal PJ placement (ie. throw distance and PJ ceiling mount alignment with screen height, etc). I have projectorcentral's recommendations, but wondered about some real life experiences.
Any help, much appreciated.
