Need a ceiling mount for sp 7200. Bought the SP-CEIL-005 from infocus but need to extend 28" down from the ceiling. The Infocus extension arm is more than the original mount in dollars. Any suggestions for a ceiling mount that will drop 24 to 28" and is under 5 bills.


Tks.


Second question:

Long Throw--Do I want to put the project as far back from the screen as possible and if yes, help me understand why.


Tks. again.:p

A piece of threaded pipe painted black would be less than $5.


Zooming the lens almost all the way in creates the least amount of barrel distortion in the lens.

If you use the Peerless or Chief mounts, all you need to do is get the correct length of thread pipe to join the projector plate with the ceiling plate.


Either should be well under $500.


Placing the projector furthest from the screen will cause the least amount of hotspotting and the most even illumination of the screen. However moving it in just a little closer may eliminate or reduce the barrel distortion.


Good Luck!

Yep, Go with the Chief. Mount Ceiling Plate + RPA Mount + Fixed Extension Column should be less than $300 delivered !


Here are part numbers


RPA-875 : Chief Mount for Infocus 7200


CMA-024 : 24" extension column OR

CMA-036 : 36" extension column



Ceiling plate will depend on your installation. Refer to chief's website at chiefmanufacturing.com. You can alternatively use any manufacturers ceiling plate that attaches to a 1.5" threaded NPT rod. Just make sure it is suited for your ceiling type and is spec'd out to support the load (projector + rod + mount). Of course make sure the ceiling can support the load too. With the 7200 being relatively light, you should not have a problem here.
