After months of lurking, I'm thinking of jumping in to the front projection world, and am leaning toward the HS10.


I'm trying to decide where I should put my screen - my room (gif attached) is basically rectangular 23x15 with windows on one of the 15' ends and a doorway on the other - based primarily upon what will get me the biggest bestest ginchiest 16:9 picture quality. I've used the projection calculator at projectorcentral.com to determine the max HS10 picture size that I could get at a variety of distances. What the calculator doesn't tell me, however, is what is ideal.


Given that I have a room that is 23x15, that can be very light controlled, that my goal is the biggest picture possible without sacrificing contrast/clarity/brightness/wow!, that I'm leaning toward the HS10, and that I would prefer to mount a screen on a wall vs. paying extra jack for a pulldown, tell me what to do. :)


Thanks!

p.s. I realize that this topic may belong in the Home Theater Builder forum, but since the crux of my question is the HS10, I put it here instead.

Tony,

Based on the size and shape of your room, I would recommend putting the screen on the 23' wall close to the wall with the door. 14' is about right for a 110" diagonal screen. Attached is a throw distance calculator for the HS10.

Don't know what happened to the attachment. I guess the forum software doesn't like .xls files. Here it is zipped. This is not my work, I got it from someone else here on the forum.
