Here's my small home theater nook about 12' x 12'. I was able to sink the projector into the wall, which got me a throw distance of about 11'9". That just barely allowed me to fill a 115" 2.35:1 screen.

I made the mistake of picking Tron Legacy for my first movie, which switches the aspect ratio for a few scenes, but the epson makes zooming between the two fairly quick and painless. I still need some furniture, but I'm really happy with the whole setup.

Did your fabric come on a roll or folded? Mine is folded and I'm just wondering when I get round to building the screen will the folds come out?

I ordered it rolled. I think you should be fine as long as it's well stretched. Give it a few days at least. If it still has creases in the worst areas, you can take a hair dryer to it lightly and it might help get them out.

My competed effort. 11ft wide 2.40 fixed screen with a second 9ft electric screen in the ceiling. (Pic 3 the room hadn't been painted at this point, hence the reflection on the wall)

Screen was a DIY effort, fabric from Carls place with black velvet border (about £120) in total.

So did the material come in a 16:9 and you cut it down to 2.40:1? From what I see on his site it is either 4:3 or 16:9.

I am using my JVC DLA-X790 projector with an Anamoprhic lens and need to switch between A mode and B mode for 2.35:1 and 16:9 Everything works fine for my Oppo and DVR. When I use my 4K Roku and 4K Apple TV the Anam mode is grayed out and is in the Off mode. Both the Roku and Apple TV are set up and tested as 4K. Any idea why the ananmorphic mode selection is grayed out?

Thought I might add some recent pictures of my cinema. It has become a bit of prop room (big boys toys) as well now.

I'm still using the AT screen since late 2006. In 2010, I was giving the opportunity to build a new dedicated home cinema and built it based in the screen I had at the time. In retrospect, I would have made the room a trapezoid and turned it 180 when I got a bigger screen. It is still cool because it is wall to wall.

Projector is still BenQ W6000. Not sure which projector I will upgrade to. I should go JVC but I just like DLP.
BD player is now OPPO 203 UHD player with 21:9 mode and HDR to SDR conversion.
AVR is still a THX processed 7.1. LCR speakers became active in late 2010, so any upgrade needs pre-outs.

The room.

Screen end.


It's all about that bass with 4 Peerless XLS drivers.


MK5, Projector, seating and Surrounds. I am in the planning stages of upgrading to ATMOS.


MK5 Anamorphic Lens.


My feeble UHD collection. I think I bother buying BDs anymore and just grow this collection.


Screen shot using the HDR to SDR conversion of the UHD of Blade Runner 2049.

The JVC’s won’t do anamorphic stretch for 4k60 sources...
I’ve also found that out, as I have a RS400.
They handle 4k24 source material fine

Thank you. I am liking it and can't wait to upgrade. Not sure what will happen first - ATMOS or 4K?

If you don't already have one, get the OPPO 203. You get a 21:9 mode (both VS and HS) and tone mapping for HDR (this in itself is amazing). I don't have any 2160/60P sources, but I am lead to believe this mode works on them as well as all those PITA, JAVA encrypted 3D BDs that would not scale in the older players (103/103D) via the Vertical Stretch mode.

Unfortunately I can confirm this is not the case. I sometimes cannot use the zoom function on the Oppo 203. My memory is bad but I'm pretty sure I've seen a 4K disc or two with this issue but definitely many BD's.

BTW, nice room with all the "flare" scattered around!

And that Anamorphic Lens looks massive! How much did that thing go for? Any info or threads on it?

I too love the DLP look. I have a JVC RS500 now but had a Sharp XV-Z30000 for many years.

Hopefully this fall they will have some more DLP options with lasers that are more refined.

I spent many hours with a friend who has the Optoma 65 laser and it has a nice picture and very bright. And ANSI was great but on/off was still poor.

But honestly it needs more fine tuning. It felt weakly built, not very solid. Especially the Lens system. A little glitchy here and there and tons of RBE.

It is the Aussiemorphic Lens MK5. It is HUGE at 9" dia and weighs in at 6.2KG!

I have not been overly impressed with Optoma's UHD65. At this point, I'd go back to LCD with the Epson if I can't get a JVC. Lets hope lasers are the answer.

So you make these Lens' yourself? Are they in production or made to order or what? How much do they run for? You compared them to Panamorph's latest iterations?

This was the UHZ65 I saw. I agree they need to be refined but it really showed the great potential laser has. We were getting close to 450nits on his 100" 16:9 1.3 gain Stewart screen. HDR was awesome!

Hopefully this fall after CEDIA we'llsee a lot more laser models released!

I was hoping OPPO had solved the JAVA issues. That was a real bug bear in 3D and CIH. Projectors like JVCs and Optoma could just scale anything. Other projectors didn't scale at all and then, neither could the older OPPOs because of the JAVA encoding. Why did they even use JAVA anyway?

Any form of collecting can be expensive. I still have a box of old laser discs. I'm sure I spent over 8 grand on those and I can't/don't even play them any more.

Yes I did. This started off as a DIY project in 2005 and grew into a world class product that is used on 4 continents.
My units started out as prism based like Panamorph are today, and I moved to cylindrical (like ISCO) in 2009.

The difference between prisms and cylindrical lenses is that cylindricals can be focused. Prism can not.

New BenQ lasers coming soon. As much as I love DLP, I just think it might have just reached its end of life as good display tech.

Technically, it should be able to do infinite colour space, but all the DLP projectors I have seen so far seem to be wedded to REC709. Even the amazing, RBE free LED unit I borrowed a few years ago had major limitations so far as on/off contrast etc.

I think they need to lose the colour wheel and add in variable brightness/flickering lasers. The idea of the DMD is amazing, but lamps are not the way to go with this tech at this level.

Dolby Vision = fun and games. We really need test patterns.

I started with my HDR 10 setting then upped both brightness and contrast. I used the black letter box bar against the black of space to set brightness pushing it as high as I could whilst keeping the black floor as dark as I could.

I then used the scene where Kylo smashed his helmet and used the glass as a peak white pattern taking the white into crush, then pulling it back so the detail was bright but no crush or colour temp shift. I used his black outfit to check that black didn't shift.

This is looking way better than the last time I viewed this.

Thank you! That is the double edge sword - I have 86 4K Blu - rays, but I also still have 486 Blu - rays. Some of them no longer look quite as shiny and sharp as I once thought they did. But I'm still a movie lover, so i just hope all my favorites get remastered on 4K some day. Looks like quite a few movies will be remastered this year.

Sorry for the long post.

I still use an old BenQ W6000 and since adding the OPPO 203, have discovered a new way to lift the image quality.
My pic is snapped with a camera phone.

The DLP technology had never been able to produce black at black for a full field. It does nice blacks when there are bright images around the black parts.

Whist Blu-ray has used rec709, the black level of video black is 7.5% or PC values of RGB16. HDR changed all that with blacks down to 0 and Dolby Vision throws yet another spanner in the works by disabling user controls.

So what I wanted was a set up where I can change between SDR, HDR and Dolby Vision without having to change the projector settings. Is this even possible? Yes, as it turns out, it is.

I cheated. My lamp is aging and becoming dull. HDR wants bright as does Dolby Vision. What I found was that DV disabled the OPPO controls but the projector controls still worked.

My cheat was to go to the 4x3 mode and find the the limits for DV which are far greater than those for SDR. With a ramps and plugs test patterns for SDR , tipically whites start to crush around contrast of 51 and brightness 44. With Dolby Vision, I can take contrast to 70 and raise the brightness to 50 whilst keeping the black floor. Because there is no DV test pattern, I used the 4x3 mode and the black bars of the letterbox as my reference. I used the scene in SWTLJ where Kylo smashed his helmet and cross referenced it with the salt fields at the final battle. In the end contrast at 69 was the brightest with no crush. Brightness was a 50. Gamma of 2.4 was used based on results from other people doing a similar thing.

For SDR and HDR, I used modes 1 and 2 of the user modes of the OPPO and both HDR and SDR test patterns to set bright and contrast in the player.

With projector contrast at 69, I have had to pull OPPO contrast down to -16 but the pattern reveals white out past 4000nits.

The BenQ can't display black to 0 so the best I can get is 2.5% for HDR with the 2% above video black bar being visible for SDR.

My images are brighter than they have been for a while with no crushing of the whites. Blacks are deep. Because the whites are not close to 100nits, I have had to pull down the colour saturation to just take out the sunburn look of skin tones . DV looks fine or I would reduce projector colour and leave the OPPO control alone.

I'm still astounded at the added brightness with no hit on sharpness or clarity with this Panamorph Paladin DCR lens. I've repented from my wicked zooming days.
