Hi.

I'm looking for a screen to use with my Sanyo Z3000. The screen must have 120" and the Sanyo is at 16,4ft. I will be seated at 13ft in a dark room. What is the best gain?

Thank you

If you calibrate in the Living color mode and allow some extra brightness for lamp aging, you will need a modest 1.2 to 1.3 gain. If you want to use one of the Cinema modes, you will need about twice as much gain. The latter would require a retroreflective screen such as the Da-Lite High Power, along with a seating position close to the projector lens. These numbers are based on the lumen values given in this review.

Da-Lite will make any size you want. I believe they will charge for the next larger standard size, plus a small customization fee.


The nearest standard size they make is 119". It's available in the Model C manual, the electric, and the fixed frame.
