Here's a quick sneek peek for those coming over tomorrow night to see my HT200. Please excuse the ghetto HTML, I just threw this together in 30 seconds =)

For those looking for an alternative mounting solution for a projector in the middle of the room look at what I did. The poles are modular and were found on http://www.alu.com -


As you can see in the photos there is significant daylight during the day, I'll be getting some heavy duty black out shades soon. The screen is a Greyhawk showing the HT200 with a Radeon HTPC. The pre/pro is a B&K and it drives a six channel ADA amp. The laserdisc player is a CLD-79 loaner because my 99 is in the shop and I'm also hunting for an X9 =)


Enjoy the pics, and for those coming over looking forward to meeting you!

Nice setup Peter. Your view is awesome. What city is that anyway? Please let me know if you find some good black out shades because I have a similar problem.

That's look like "My Dream House" TV series. Gorgeous sea view.


BTW how large is your Greyhawk screen. It looks like a 16:9 wireframe fixed installation screen. With the light output from the HT200 rating at 800 ANSI lumen, is that a good match with the Greyhawk? Definitely the contrast should be excellent. Do you need to really dim all the light down or otherwise? Or will you plan for upgrading to the HT250?


Just want to learn from your experience.

Is that an ISCO lens (I or II)? Never really seen one of these in context with the projector. It is much bigger than I expected. Does it easily move out of the light path for 4:3? (even though I realize your screen is 16:9)

Tsunami-

The screen is 84" wide, and it is a permanent wall mount with the Veluxe 3" border. Also, the HT200 is plenty bright even with the Greyhawk. The contrast and black levels are perfect for this size. I don't have to make it completely black to view material but I find that even the light from New Jersey bothers me while viewing movies. If I'm only using the computer to browse the web or watch cable I don't really need to draw the blinds at night or dim the house lights, the screen does a good job of getting rid of ambient light. I've thought about upgrading sometime but for the time being I love my HT200...


Johann-

The lense is in fact an ISCO II. However...all this talk of the 2.35:1 Panomorph has me thinking- if in fact the preorder does happen for the new lense I'll probably be selling my ISCO II, getting a Panamorph (both lenses), and getting a new screen as well...isn't HT fun?


Thanks all for the kind words, the view of the river here is simply amazing! The only "problem" is that even with the blinds shut the light is blinding at times...I find that I wake up at 6:30 everyday from the light regardless of what time I go to sleep =)

Fantastic looking place.

What is the strange dome looking thing above your LCD monitor?


I may do the same for my projector except enclose it as a hush box.


Thanks For the pics Hugo

Mark / Peter:


We ordered some fabric from Guliford of Maine in the color and style that my wife likes. We had a local drapery person make it up into drapes for the two large window spaces we had and had her back it with light blocking material. Note: this makes them heavy so you have to have a rod that will accomodate this.


We then used the Makita remote controlled rods for the two windows.


It works and you do not have to get a black drape to achieve light block out. That is, you can get a color / style that matches your decor.


We had previously tried shades but they had lots of issues (did not totally mask the window, were a combination of fabric and some sort of paper and thus would bend etc).

Hi Peter,


nice apartment! I am very interested to buy the new SIM HT200DM, an ISCO II and a DaLite HC or Greyhawk.


What's your screen size and your viewing distance?


Many Thanks, Walter

Bellisimo!! Lindisimo!!! You have a wonderfull place.

The photo of the screen with the light of the sun part on the screen part on the wall (the wall is white, right?) is very interesting, I can see the difference of shading on the wall and on the screen (gray screen?) By the way, have you consider to paint the wall behind the screen with a darker color or maybe have a curtain that you close when you watching a movie?

I have enjoy a lot just looking the photos of your place, thanks,

Federico

Chuck,


This is getting a little off topic, but.... http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif


How much beyond the borders (sides, bottom and top) of the window are your drapes? Do you have any light problems due to the folds of the drapes? Is there anyway you can post a photo?


Thanks for the info!

Brian- Your setup is nice! The dogs are the best part though =)


Hugomed- the strange dome looking thing is a lamp, I'm probably moving it somewhere else


Walter- the seating is about ~150" away from an 84" wide 16:9 screen


Chuck- Thanks for the suggestion, I'm heading out to a fabric/drape place tomorrow to check it out...I'll probably go for an off-white with black on the other side
