Thanks for advice on the lighting too. I’m as of yet undecided on a color scheme, but I have spousal approval for a black ceiling, so I can make it pretty darn dark.
The pics were quick mock-ups, I plan to center everything on midline.
The riser is intentionally as limited as possible as I’m 6’8” (hence my choice of username) and I want to duck as little as possible.
In the meantime, choosing a projector is driving me insane: the tech is at such a weird place. I’ll have conduit for upgrading cables, albeit not easily, so I’d like to use an 18 Gbit HDMI (and one for redundancy, and a couple runs of cat6 too).
The (value x best tech bet)/price ratios are very challenging.
I am looking at the following:
Epson 5050 (pending availability)
JVC DLA-X790R (seems very attractive)
BenQ whatever their new model is that is competing with the new Epson
CIH ~100” 16:9 with zoom to 2.35:1
Seating distance ~9’
Games are a plus but i’m not a rabid FPS player so a little delay is tolerable
Completely light controlled room, and willing to cover a lot in velvet if helpful
AT screen, likely spandex DIY
Any tips very appreciated here, as I need to look into mounting and hush boxes but need a pj first!
