If you're talking about the Theaterwall system I think you're talking about:

Theaterwall?


It's basically a rear projection setup using a front projector that is built into the wall. So the screen is part of the wall. I saw this displayed at a trade show last year. Picture quality is very good, basically comparable to an RPTV. And you have the advantages of an RPTV in terms of viewability with ambient lighting, etc. However, I think there is a limitation on the screen size since you only have a certain throw distance to work with within the wall space and the mirrors used. And there is also the cost. Not sure how much it is, but probably fairly significant since it's a custom job and there's the cost of the acrylic rear projection screen.

Interesting...


I considered doing this with one of my CRTs.


I've never seen an installation this shallow... 36" depth for a 72"x48" image:

But can't you buy a Mitsubishi 72" RPTV for $3K, just frame it in, and not have to replace bulbs?

$3K? Is that all they cost?


Anyway, you have to then put up with burn in and h-o-r-r-i-b-l-e viewing angles.
