Home Theater Projector

Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend a good native 1080p projector for home use? The trick is I'm trying to project onto a wall that's roughly 19ft away from where the projector would be placed. So I would need a projector that lets you modify the size of the "screen" because at the range the "screen" would be too large for the wall.. I don't want to have to place the projector in the middle of the room or on the ceiling. Does anyone have any recommendations?

I know jack squat about the current technology of projectors, but I've used a poo ton in schools over the years.  First off, how much do you know about projection?  If not much, I found this link here to be helpful:

Looking at your space, you'll really have to cover those windows when you want to project. 

Then make sure you have enough projection clearance so it's not clipping your heads.  Projecting that far is going to introduce a fair number of other possible interference. 

Sorry, I'm kind of rambling here.  Projectors can be super dope with the size and immersion.  My neighbor has a little cheapo projector he bought for his kids that he sets up in his backyard.  It's OK.  Not great, passable.  It's not mine so I don't critique him.

At school, the church that rents out my space installed a $15k projector that can cut through all the stage lights and still deliver their image on their 24' wide screen.  I bet that's above your budget...

If you can, go to Home Theatre stores to see what they have.  Talk to an expert (so not Best Buy) and do your shopping that way.

Good luck!  Hopefully this was somewhat helpful.

You can get a bigass TV for less than a grand, much bigger than any projector you can use in that space. Between the couch and the duct, you would have better luck setting up a table on the end of the couch.
