Projecting Through Glass Window

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I want to build a projection room in the back of my HT. I was thinking that might be a good place to store movies, house equipment racks, and keep PJ noise (what little there is) outside of the viewing room. The back wall is soundproof, so I am trying to avoid an open "porthole" for the projector. I was thinking of a window of some sort. What picture quality issues might I expect when projecting through a window, and how can I avoid them?

There must be another thread about this, but I couldn't find one. If someone can point me in the right direction, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks,
Brian

do a search for "optical glass". it is the special kind of glass you'll need for your window.

"optical glass" does the trick. At least I am finding relevent information.

Now ... who knows anything about sound transmission through optical glass?
