Hi folks.


I know that this projector has been discussed for many times

and I hope that I am not annoying you, but I have still one question,

which all the postings could not answer.


I have quite a small room and therefore the distance between

my seat in my little ht and the screen will be very low.

(about 2 m)

I know that the projector can make a picture with a

width of about 160 cm at this distance, but my question is whether

the picture at this low distance is still acceptable in quality

or if you already can see every single pixel.


Does anybody use the projector at about the same distance

I want to use it? Perhaps any pics?


Thanks!


Greetings

You probably need at least 2.5x screen width to minimize wide-VGA PJ's screendoor (pixel visibility). Defocusing, gray screen, and adding an optical filter help too. At 2m or 6 feet, your image has to be max around 1m or 3 ft wide to not significantly see screendoor which means a RPTV or used CRT may be more cost effective. Li On has a quite small HT with his AE100 so you may want to PM him for his opinion. Just my $0.02.

I find 1.8x to 2x viewing distance to be quite acceptable. I think I finally got the defocus trick right last night and saw very little screendoor while watching "Elizabeth". 160cm screen at 2m distance might be pushing it though. Bottom line you have to see for yourself and find what is acceptable to you - I know it's a cliche around here but....

I view at 1.5x and am happy enough with the unit.

I'm considering buying the AE-100. Distance from backwall (where I will mount it) to screen is about 3 m. How large a picture should I expect to be able to have without compromising picture quality?

Start with this:

http://www.projectorcentral.com/projection_calc.cfm


Use it to find out the range of screen size for your viewing distance or the other way around, find out the range of distance the projector must be for a given width. Enter only one variable at a time.
