Hey everyone, i am new to these forums. I have just started to wade into the front projection world. I am going to go get a panasonic ae3000, and i wanted a 110" diagonal screen. My room is completely light controlled. I think i wanna build the screen myself to save some money.

1.If i by the BOC will it be big enough to make a 110" screen. I don't know if i am going to do 16:9 or 2.35 ratio.
2. What is the best method to make a fixed frame and add the screen material to it?

I hope someone out there can help me out. Thanks to Anyone

hello snowball, welcome to HTS:wave:

have a look at this sticky - it has information on what sizes you can buy.
http://www.hometheatershack.com/forums/projector-screens-diy-screens/4890-blackout-cloth-boc-other-screen-materials.html

if you can find 5x10 BOC then that will give you about 120 inches diagonally for a 16:9 screen.

there have been a few people who have constructed fixed frames.
heres one:http://www.hometheatershack.com/forums/projector-screens-diy-screens/17128-building-my-new-screen.html

the search function will help you find some other fixed frame projects to give some ideas.

Most of the video material available is 16:9 . So you can go for a 110" . That is 96" Height and 54" Width. AE-3000 can be installed anywhere between 11 to 20 feet.



I always will try to have the projector close to the screen . There is no fixed image offset in this projector. You have a lovely lens shift. It's the most simplest installation .



Panasonic claims that the picture quality is at it's best when both Hor/Ver lens shift are at mechanical center.



Good luck to you.
