Some dumb questions on Epson 3700/Milliskin Spandex Build
So after a lot of research, I think I've narrowed my design down to the Epson 3700 and a DIY Milliskin Spandex screen. However, I do have some (possibly dumb) questions.
I love the look of the anamorphic screens, but the 3700 is native 16:9. Is there a way for me to build an anamorphic screen (2.39:1?) and use it in such a manner with this projector? Or would I need a projector that can do a switch/stretch, etc?
The width I have for my screen space is approx. 130". It looks like that would give me the following dimensions for 16:9 or anamorphic:
Width - 130.7
Height - 73.5
Diag - 150
Width - 130.1
Height - 54.4
Diag - 141
If i'm not mistaken, it looks like milliskin only comes in a max height of 58"/60", so am I limited in that I can't do a 16:9 screen of that size if I wanted to? The anamorphic wouldn't be an issue obviously.
Sorry if these are dumb questions. Just trying to wrap my head around the aspect ratio piece of all this and want to make sure I do it once, do it right.
Also, is there a minimum distance I need to keep between flush in walls that go behind the screen and the screen itself?
