hi guys,


please tell me if my math is correct. (the screen is 16:9 for HS10)


16:9 x 6.5


width = 16*6.5 = 104"

height= 9*6.5 = 58.5"


So the diagonal is Sqrt (104^2 + 58.5^2) = 119.324.. Is this my so call screen size? If so, is this consider 120" screen size that people refer to because I don't think an exact 120" screen is possible?


Thanks,

Mark

Your math is correct.


Most people describe their screens at home using the diagonal measurement but you can just as easily call this a 104"(wide) screen instead of a 120" screen. If you choose to describe your screen using a dimension other than the diagonal, I would suggest you always disclose the dimension you are using (width or height).


Right or wrong, people tend to round things to the next even number. (this screen becomes 120" for simplicity)


A 120" (exactly) screen is physically possible. Instead of using 6.5 in the calculations of your previous post, try something more like 6.5368165284341196315104045763942. This will probably still not be exactly 120" diagonal but it will be closer than that ~.676" of slop in your previous post. ;)
