To refresh, I have a 32 ft long x 23 ft wide x13 ft high room, painted off white, with a white rear wall and windows (but with interlined curtains).
After much agonizing--search my prior threads in this forum--re: mounting PJ in rear, searching for high lumen output, Navitar lenses etc, I finally got WAF permission to mount the PJ on a stand behind the couch just above eye level and 15 ft frpm the screen. Whee! That means I can get the HP dropdown, 116x65, 133 diagonal.
Now the fun begins. I need a PJ to light up this puppy. Although it would probably look great in a batcave with almost any low lumen PJ, given that it is an off white game room (and no, I can't paint the back wall black) and will have some ambient light it seems I might do better with a higher lumen unit. DLP, at least until LED units come out, is not poss as I can't spend the bux on a 3 chip and otherwise see rainbows. So it's LCOS LCD etc.
I'm thinking an RS1, UB 1080 or the new Panny might be the way to go--just seems that even with the gain it'll take some lumens to light up a screen that size if there is any ambient.
I'd appreciate opinions!
