JVC + Zoom + which Screen?
I am finishing out our media room, I've never done 2.35:1 with previous projectors because I could never pull the trigger on a lens. I'm planning on replacing a 1080p JVC with a new JVC NX5 and looking to do 2.35:1 with a SI screen.
Room is 15x18 oriented lengthwise with no windows, with dark matte paint so it can be totally light controlled. This will be 75% movies and 25% TV, most of the times in total darkness but likely sometimes with the wall sconces on dimmed during TV viewing.
Current plan is the JVC NX5 + a 133" Zero Edge or 140" Zero Edge Pro with either the pure gray .85 or slate 1.2. The projector throw distance will be about 13.5 feet from lens to screen. Basically right over the main seating area so that will be the most used viewing distance too.
Will it throw enough light for 140" @ 2.35:1 using zoom?
Is the Slate 1.2 the best bet give the zoom and associated loss of light output?
Should I ditch SI and get a Silver Ticket screen with NX7?
Thanks in advance!
