I'd like to get some advice from the DIY screen folks here. I'm building a home theatre. I've got the audio handled (the acoustics worked out, panels and speakers all set, etc.) No problems there. But now it's time to work on the video side of things, and I've got a few questions.
My projector is a Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 8350. It will be positioned 10.5 ft from the wall onto which it will project.
The maximum viewable portion of the wall is 85" x 145" (obviously I will probably not project onto that entire area.)
The room can be in total darkness as required, so ambient light will never be an issue.
Prior to painting, some drywall repair will be done (to remove two sockets and one patch of previous damage), so if needs be I can get any other defects mended.
Given all of the above, what paint would you recommend for said wall? I will be hiring a contractor for this (have used him before and can trust him to follow exact directions), so I'm hoping that the mixing/application process can be boiled down to clear instructions (I'm afraid I can't just point him at the forums and say "go read that for a few days."
Mixes, ready-made solutions, what would you'd recommend?
P.S. Please let me know if I forgot any important details!
