Any advice on a projector that would give a bright enough image, while using full house lights on a 16 foot by 9 foot screen. The screen material has not ben spec'd yet. This is for a large conference center and the screens will be on both sides of a 35 foot stage.


I came in late on this project, and need some suggestions (the lower the cost the better). 720p or 1080p projectors are needed.


Thanks in advance.

Call your local AV company and ask for either a Christie Projector or a Barco they are the Highest end for projection technology. Most cinemas now use Christie digitals for their movies in North America. Barco is what I use for concerts we used 24 for the recent Roger Waters Concert on a Catalyst. Anything from a R10 and up should suffice. Cheers

You are going to need at least 4500ANSI for a screen that size with house lights up. And you'll probably want to go with a gray screen material in order to preserve/enhance contrast in ambient light conditions. My choice would be a 3-chip DLP. You can get deals on 720p versions, but 1080p this bright will set you back $20-30K.

Pete,

That is why I mentioned the Eiki. It fits the bill and is under $6000

It passes the brightness hurdle, but it appears to be contrast challenged...no biggie if you're throwing pie charts...not ideal for HT.

Pete,

His post says "Projectors for Large Conference area" and then goes on to say

"16ft x9 ft with full house lights on".

High Contrast numbers aren't the issue here.


35 foot stage isn't Home Theater!
