Also, how many inches does the assembly add at the top if hung from a ceiling?
All three of those answers are correct, to some extent. The 18" you heard was in reference to the Flexio/BriteG series only, you may have asked about this series instead of the HDVio in this case. The 8" is available on all types of screens, as the drop is adjustable from 0-12" on the HDVio series and 0-18" on the Flexio/BriteG series. The standard drop setting that each screen is set at when it is shipped out is, in most cases, not the maximum or minimum, and is usually set in that moderate range, ~8" for HDVio, ~12" for Flexio/BriteG. However, the maximum
drop distance for the HDVio and Flexio/BriteG screens are 12" and 18", respectively.
It is adjustable by a top-adjustment screw located inside the case, and the exact location and which direction to adjust it in for desired results is located in the instruction manual included with the screen, but is also available on our website under the Product Manuals link.
The HDVio does not differ too greatly from the Flexio/BriteG series in regards to screen case size, so you could, for the most part, use this as a guide to the dimensions you requested:
This is the 106" viewable, 110" overall, Flexio series 16:9 format screen dimension list. The screen casing is roughly the same size, looking at dimension #G and using the mounting hardware included, it offsets it from the ceiling/wall by about 1 additional inch.
