Edit: if ceiling mounted, I am thinking of mounting to that wooden beam. 3rd option would be to put the projector on a coffee table.Hi all,
New to this, I am considering putting a screen and projector in the basement instead of a TV. Main use will be movies (Netflix and other FHD and UHD/HDR sources) and gaming (Xbox one X, PS4 PRO) and maybe some sport (streaming, 720p-1080p)
Considering the layout of the room, the screen will likely be in front of the window (small window, this is a basement). As for the projector location, it could either be on a shelf being the couch (wall to wall distance is 5.2meters/17ft so the projector will likely be 15ft+ to the screen and the viewing distance pretty much the same, a few inches less) or it could be ceiling mounted however if that's the case, as I have 2 different height ceilings in the basement, the projector would only be like 6ft from the screen.
Any tips, recommandations on best projector and ideal set up would be appreciated. Hoping to not go above $2,000 CAD.
Will add photos shortly
