Getting dizzy is all part of the fun! Right now I'm just projecting on the wall. I changed things up a bit as of late. I'm gaming even larger now. (1.78:1, 150" diagonal)



I purchased a couple dozen IMAX films on Blu-ray at the end of last year also. This is a great size for IMAX presentations.

I've pretty much decided to stick with this screen area, so this will finally be the year I finish up my room. The plan is to go with a false wall and AT screen.

I'd like to have 4-way masking as well. I'm thinking of going with curtains for the side masking and Seymour AV's Proscenium Masking Frame (PRH130: 16:9 130”w, 149.2”d with Center Stage XD) for the top/bottom masking.

I plan to give the room the dark treatment also. Even considering replacing the carpet with something darker. Should be fun. Just saving my pennies at present. I should be ready to pull the trigger in early May.

I game with PlayStation 4 pro and Nintendo switch on 2 displays in my living room, my original set up was a 70" sharp 1080p TV with a 100" powered screen that drops down in front of everything projecting with a Sony 45es 1080p projector. Playing God of War is just absolutely awesome! Watching link run around in Hyrule in Zelda on a 100" screen is just as incredible, the Switch is no slouch. I recently upgraded my 70" sharp 1080p TV with an 82" Samsung un8000 4k TV and added an Xbox one x to the mix, so much color, picture detail and it runs so smooth! my projector is looking smaller now! I am on the fence to upgrade my projector with a 4k projector and a bigger screen maybe 110". 4k is a very nice upgrade, its very noticeable to me. My problem is finding a 4k projector with low lag. the Samsung nu8000 and the Sony 45es projector have very low lag, its in the low 20s. if you are gaming this is a very important feature you want, I used to game playing destiny on a JVC rs2 and the picture was so beautiful but the lag hurt my gaming. especially in any fast paced games like shooters and fighting games. My advise that I tell everyone is what ever size TV you think you need go 1 or 2 sizes bigger. Screens seem to shrink after awhile plus with 4k you can sit closer to the screen compared with a 1080p TV with out any problems.
