Hi,


Wife won a Infocus IN1503. Thinking about setting it up with a 90'' 16x9 screen. Was going to ceiling mount it at 5'2'' away and 7.6'' above the screen.

Is this projector OK for showing DVD/BLU-Rays over the HDMI Input?.

Room is 13ft wide by 12ft deep and 8' 6'' high.


thanks


Les

This is a very bright projector more for multimedia business type presentations. Specs show low lamp at 2300 Lumen. A typical $3000 home theater projector is more like 1000. Bright is good in a lighted room to be able to see text and power point slides but to watch movies that kind of light washes out the darks so your contrast will be very low (specs say 1800) By today's standard this would be almost unwatchable by most folks here on the forum.


I would suggest you set this up on a table and project on a white wall in the size and from the distance you are thinking about, and watch it for a few weeks. Make sure you sit at the same distance you will in the finished room and using the same approximate room lighting (non is best). You will know if you want to put the time, money and effort into a permanent install after you have watched it for a while. Make sure you watch different types of movies including a couple dark movies, space horror etc lots of night time scenes. You will see the lack of shadow detail and the areas that should be back will be light gray and washed out looking.


BTW, there is nothing wrong with a table mount if the cables can be routed out of the way.. makes upgrading in 6 months or a year a lot easier~
