One thing that works in your favor is that the Screen is mounted up high enough to allow the reflected angle of the image to meet the viewers eyes at a level that avoids dimming.



As far as hot spotting goes....the Camera tendency to accentuate that effect is what is making it seem at least somewhat obvious. It's under the most extreme cases, one can see such happen in the very occasional bright TV image, it's seems virtually non-existent when watching Film. In this instance there is no opportunity to move the PJ so as to actually show what improvement could be effected, and even though the set-up (PJ Throw) is shorter than ideal, the height placement is spot-on, and that is the among the most important consideration, especially when the distance is a bit compromised. Through all that though, the image remains amazing and the image quality as it currently stands make that effort redundant anyway.


I personally look forward to a return trip, where I will earn my Theater squatting rights by helping build the needed Riser behind the Front Row. Truthfully though...the height the screen is placed at "almost" makes the Riser unnecessary. Almost. [IMG class=inlineimg]/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif[/IMG]
MM you will always have DIBS on the back row captains chair, can’t wait till we can get going on it! Your riser design with the tactile’s will be the cherry on top! In the mean time I need to get started on the paint and relocate those surrounds higher.

My measurement is interesting to me because I don’t know what it indicates about what I should be seeing. As MM has pointed out the preferred throw ratio is farther than where I’m able to mount my projector, but I could not be happier with the results I’m getting.

From the screen to the lens the distance is 167 inches. I guessed at 192 the other day because I knew that 16ft from the screen was a bulkhead preventing me from mounting the pj any farther back. Here’s a pic for reference, the other measurements were for planning the riser build.

So what do you gents think? Could my image be even better than it is for me now? That’s pretty hard for me to imagine. I’m sure there are already plenty of explanations on the benefit of proper throw distance and mounting location on the forums that I can read up on. But I’m always interested in different opinions or explanations as it relates to my situation.
I think one of the things working in your favor is that still works out to a roughly 1.85:1 throw-ratio for 16:9 content...which is great. The inherently wider zoom during widescreen content causes the sides to be dimmer than they'd be with a more ideal throw-ratio, but it sounds like it hasn't been a noticeable issue and it isn't something you can easily change.
Potentially good news for other folks unable to mount at a farther throw-ratio with a scope aspect screen.

Thanks Ftoast, good point with the 16:9! It really has been great.

From Dad’s Galaxy S9+, lights off then on.

Taken about 6 ft. from the screen, then I think he may have digitally zoomed in on her face.

From Dad’s Galaxy S9+. Off axis, lights off then on. That flood shining on the wall is doing its best to fight the battle, but still losing in my opinion.
