Sorry about the crude sketch done on ms paint. I am trying to figure out where to mount my projector. The problem is the 12 inch header that hangs down from the ceiling about 4 feet from the screen wall. I would like to put the projector in position A but I am not sure if this is possible because of the angle it would have to project down. Also I want the screen to be as high up on the wall as possible and I figured placement B would be better because if placed in spot A I would have to account for line angle C which would cause me to have to place screen lower on wall. I am thinking a panny 3000 but am still deciding. any suggestions for this setup?

What screen size do you want? it makes a difference on how far back you need to place the projector.


Also the lens shift available on a particular projector will dictate how high or low the projector can go.


All that said, B will probably win out.

Looking at around 118" or so screen, would really like to go with placement A if a projector has that much lens shift. Mounting will work better and i will be able to hide the projector if I can go that route, but that header in the front of the room is giving me fits.

if you plan on going that large you are forced to go with b. you will need at least 12 feet to get to that size
