So if you watch the video at
and believe the animations... the picture at 120" almost reaches the top of the projector. The 120" picture grows from the center of the display being casted at 90".
@ 90" Diagonal 16x9 we have 44" high and @ 120" Diagonal 16x9 we have 59" high. subtract the difference and divide by 2 to get the height difference on just the bottom and we have a height of 7.5" from the top of the projector. If you know where your screen is then you can put a little margin of error in place with the console.
Also, the image will be adjustable, just like the other UST models so theres margin there as well. I'd say I can adjust the image by 4" in either direction easy on the 1080p LED UST.
I happen to have a sound base I want to get rid off but could use for "decoration" if I needed it. Being that my screen is 30" from the ground and I have 7.5" from the top of the project and I bet the projector is about 4-5" tall/thick so I need a console of minimum height around 18-19" for maximum flexibility because I can add the sound base and I can go up to 21 inches or adjust the image from there for even more flexibility.
However, no one makes consoles this short so instead I will build a simple one or modify one with a solid wood top to add hinges where the top swings open with this hardware with these brackets
so I can adjust the top as much as I want and have clearance for video.
Hope this helps. I'll be making my purchase very soon. Thanks to the guy who provided that video.
