Hello Jason T., I'd like a little help with choosing a screen.
Here are my specs
I want to purchase a Epson Home Cinema 720 with 1600 lumens said to be top 3 brightest 720 P projectors.
I watch sports more than movies, but do want good quality movies, and occasionally play video games. Honestly the most important thing to me is watching sporting events with medium ambient light, like Tryg said, I don't want to watch the superbowl in the dark. My room is also totatlly light controlled.
Here's my setup my room is 13 ft wide by 23 ft long. I have two rows of 3 seats.
I want a screen that is 92" or 100" whichever you think would be best.
The first row head level is 10' from said screen and the 2nd row is 16'.
I have two light scones 7' from screen.
My ceiling is about 7' 3"
The walls are a darkish red
The ceiling is white
The carpet is white
Along with the projector I'm wondering which type of screen should I use to get my desired effect. Could you also tell me where do you think I should place the projector, height and distance wise. I would like to place it hanging from the ceiling preferably behind the second row, so we don't see it and we don't hear the sound coming from it, but if this is not best then let me know what is best for what I'm trying to acheive here.
I was thinking the da lite high power because I figured that my angles are too bad seeing how my room is narrow, however since the projector has decent lumen output I was wondering if I would be fine with just a the 1.3 gain screen that Tryg has. One more question would it be benificial with my room size to go with retro reflective rather than angular reflection to acheive resulst.
Much thanks in advance.
