  1. 2.35:1 Constant Image Height Chat
    I was watching "No Sudden Move" the other night and from what I can find online it is a 2.39:1 AR film, but it wasn't as wide as "Blade Runner 2049" (also 2.39). Incredible Hulk (also 2.39) was also not as wide as "Blade Runner 2049" but wider than "No Sudden Move". Anyone else experience this...
  2. 2.35:1 Constant Image Height Chat
    I have a BenQ HT3550 and the brightness on my 130" screen is okay, nothing great. I have velvet around the screen, masking and 8 foot from the wall towards me. The immersion for 16:9 is great however scope and other aspect ratios suffer, hence I ended up here. I'd like to keep a constant image...

    After 12 years of pleasure with my $15/sheet DoAble board, my Sony VPL-VW40 gave out and I just had to replace it with the Epson 4010 (and I thought the Sony was hefty - oh boy!) One thing I loved about the Sony was the ability to shift the lens using the remote to the full 8 ft width of the...

    Hi! I'm looking to go with a scope screen in my living room where I currently have an Epson 3800. Looking for an appropriate A-lens and adapter for my mount to match (on the cheaper side, the projector itself retails for $1700). Any ideas on what I should look out for would be most...

    Because my screen is relatively narrow for CIH due to a close seating distance it seems the edge of the mask doing the masking is always blocking the speaker? ~92" wide AT CIH 2.35 Seymour UF screen on 24" deep false wall, dark room light, controlled, speakers ~2" from back of screen...

  8. 2.35:1 Constant Image Height Chat
    I was wondering if this was a dumb thing to do. I am leaning more towards getting a cinemascope screen instead of a 16:9 one. However, since there will be regular tv being watched on this screen as well some times, I am wondering if I should place my speakers behind where the 16:9 portion of...

    After about 10 years or so, I have finally worn down the wife and she has agreed to let me put in my theatre I've been whining about all this time! I'm both excited and terrified about going forward from here as I have little knowledge as to what to do now. I bought the Sony VPL-VW695ES...

    Hi, I am trying to install my RS540. Using the wonderful info found on these forums I decided to go CIH. I am projecting to a 133in 2.35:1 screen. I am not able to get the zoom working correctly. When I set my JVC RS540 to zoom, it displays a large green grid with equal squares in it. How do I...

    Anamorphic Lens - Need some information I am thinking of getting a 130" wide 2.35:1 AT screen with manual masking panels for 16:9 content. Projector will be similar to JVC RS540 (specific model not final). I have been doing some research on A lenses on forum (specifically Panamorph Phoenix)...

    Hey, you guys. Long time lurker, here. Many, many thanks for literally years of great indirect advice. My first home theater was not great, but it was certainly stronger than it would have been had I not had the AVS Forums as a resource. But now it’s time for HT 2.0. I’m starting with an...
  13. 2.35:1 Constant Image Height Chat
    Hi guys. I've recently ordered my first projector! :cool: I am considering getting a conversion lens to get to a sufficiently large CIH screen set up. My understanding is that an anamorphic lens might not work for my throw distence and screen size combination. Measurements/equipment: - Max...

    WARNING: This is a long post but I wanted to be as thorough as I can. I also thought it would provide a good reference for someone like myself that is completely new to the field to give some things to think about that they may not have considered yet. It takes a lot of grinding and jumping in...
  18. 2.35:1 Constant Image Height Chat
    I'm putting together a new home theater from scratch (open walls in a new house, can do pretty much whatever is needed) and I'm very intrigued by the idea of CIH. While the bulk of our content in terms of hours watched is probably 16:9, the content I care the most about is widescreen cinema, and...
  19. Digital Hi-End Projectors - $3,000+ USD MSRP
    I'm in the process of remodeling my basement into a pseudo home theater setup and I need to figure out where the outlet should go on my ceiling. The projector I'll use is a JVC RS4190. I'm aiming for a 130" 2.35:1 screen (so about 104" in 16:9), and I'll be using the lens memory feature to...
