Just back from a long weekend up in Indy where I paid a visit to FamMann81
to view his Theater and help plan out a Rear Riser. This is an exercise in ergonomics, because of two very tight corners and a minimum of available "Platform" floor space....because the Riser must start out about 18" inside and between the two opposing Walls.
After the brain stormin', and while sharin' a Brew...we watched a bit of France vs Croatia.
All but one taken in some pretty ferocious Ambient Lighting (mostly reflected and not directed)
The next shot clearly shows how bright the directional Spots are set at.............
Here is a Verrrrrrrly interesting and telling shot. Most 1.4 gain screens are going to have a decidedly sharp drop in brightness once 40 degrees Off-Center is reached. Below is fully 60 degrees OC, and I had to put my back against the wall to take it. No Seats there so.......
Some very happy Frenchies !!!!
And lastly, the required Dark Room image.
Time was limited...(...as well as the Beer supply...) so that's all the pics I took but I'm certain more from FamMann81
will be forthcoming.
BTW...while I was there FamMann81 and I managed to get full cooperation from the Wife toward painting the Ceiling several shades darker of the existing Wall color. What a Gal!
