Note: I posted another version of this topic under screens. There is more activity here, so here goes:


I am about to order black velvet draperies for my soon to be completed HT. I am planning on a 92" W screen surface. The problem I am expecting will be near the top valence area. My Sanyo 21N will be ceiling mounted. the top of its light cone will just about hit where the ceiling and the wall meet. I will be forcing the 21N into a widescreen format via remote digital scaler. I can shift the active pixel area up or down within the native 4:3 area of the LCD panel so I can place the movie image where I want.


With all of that said, I would like to use a 4.5" valence at the top. That would mean that some inactive portion of my LCD panel's cone would fall on the valence. I am wondering if the black velvet will effectively null the small amount of "less than true black" that is inevitable from the LCD panel. The only other alternative is to drop the projector a bit but that is tough with 96" ceilings.


Any suggestions???
