Re: Making A DIY Anamorphic Lens

How disappointing when you've just got the projector and lens set up properly!

If the temp. light has come on just after you've started the projector, it could be that the fan is not working, in which case the unit would power off..

Red face Re: Making A DIY Anamorphic Lens

Hi All,

I'm a completely new to this excisting world of home theatre.

I have dedicated home theatre room, size is 3855 long x 4280 wide.

Planning on using JVC HD550 projector.

I would like to embark on the journey of building my own Anamorphic Lens as well documented by the professor. My question is would anamorphic setup work in a room of this size with 100" Screen???

Your help is very much apprciated.
Thanking you in advance.

Abe

Re: Making A DIY Anamorphic Lens

Hi Abe and welcome..

Are you projecting down the length of the room or across the width?
I can only presume that it would be the length, unless there is a reason why you can't do that..
If it's the length then 14' with a 100" screen will be fine for anamorphic projection..

My room is 15' long and I'm projecting onto a 106" Scope screen..sitting 9'6" back from the screen..so you should be fine..
Nice projector choice!.

Re: Making A DIY Anamorphic Lens

Hi ya, Thanks for the quick reply. I will be projecting down the room, 3855mm which I believe equals
12.64 feet. This doesn't take into account the length of the projector. Do you believe 100" Ananmorphic projection will still work in a room of this size.

Best Regards,
Abe

Re: Making A DIY Anamorphic Lens

Abe,

If your projection length is approx.12' then the projector you're proposing to use won't be suitable..
The HD550 is a long throw projector and according to the projectorcentral calculator, probably wouldn't fill a 100" scope image in that length..
To use a 100" scope screen in that length, you're going to need a shorter throw projector..
Why can't you project down the 14' dimension of that room? Then you would be able to use the JVC..

Re: Making A DIY Anamorphic Lens

Hi There, Apprciate the help however I'm now more confused than ever before. Getting conflicting information from different sources.

I looked into buying a LP Morgan Lens for use with HD500 projector.
Seller said they physically setup in a room of my size 3855mm (12.64 ft) and fit to 100" screen using this projector. This is a big investment for me, obviously need to be carefull & don't want to buy just because they say it will work.

I cannot change config of room due to location of door & window.

Apprciate your thoughts on this.

Kind Regards,
Abe

Re: Making A DIY Anamorphic Lens

Abe,

According to the projectorcentral calculator (which most people use to calculate projection distance) the HD550 set at 12' back from the screen, will require a scope screen with a height of 44"..That would mean having your screen width at 105".. and that calculates to a 114" diagonal screen..
Here are the details..http://www.projectorcentral.com/JVC-...calculator.htm
