I have been doing a bunch of research for my own setup for the past couple weeks and here is what I have come up with:


106" EluneVision Luna HD Vivid Pro Cinema Grey Motorized Screen (1.8 Gain)

Panasonic PT-AX200 projector


My room is NOT a dedicated theater room by any means. It is the living room in my townhouse. The walls are light tan, the ceiling is white, and the carpet is light as well. There are two large windows in the room which have decent blinds but I will never be able to completely control the light. There will never be direct sunlight coming towards the screen. These are the reasons I have gone with the 1.8 gain screen in grey. Correct me if this is wrong. I have gone with a motorized screen because I have a 50" plasma behind it for normal everyday viewing.


The projector will be shelf mounted directly above one of the seating positions at the appropriate height according to ProjectorPeople. Throw distance is around 15.5'. Seating positions range from 11' to 15'.


I have attached some renderings of the proposed room below. These are to scale for arguments sake. I can not move the furniture further into the other side of the room as there is other furniture over there that I have not included in the model.


I am looking for all comments and suggestions!


Thanks in advance.

Looks good, not too familiar with the PJ, I know its bright, you did confirm it can be shelf mounted, right? I think your lumen output is more than my HD65, and I am pleased with 1.6 gain white screen for daytime and nightime viewing, plus you have a 50" plasma as backup for sunny/mid day viewing.

That looks like it will work, but I would keep the following in mind. The screen that you have selected is not washable. People have also said that they can see sparkles every now and then. I have an ElunVision screen (fixed frame 1.2 gain) and I like it. It has good build quality especially for the money. I also have a DaLite High Power screen and it is a very good screen for fighting ambient light. The DaLite is one of the few none tensioned roll up screens that does not show waves. The DaLite is a white screen, not a gray screen, but I am amazed at how good the picture looks even when there is a lot of ambient light in the room. The DaLite HP screen is cheap also and you do not see the texture of the screen. I would go to the screen forum and do a search. The HP screen thread is probably larger than any other screen thread.
