    Hi I've been searchHi, I've been searching the internet for Ceiling Projector mounts for my Panny AE700 Projector (which is yet to arrive). I Have found a celing mount that I like but im not sure if its compatible with the Panasonic AE700. The mount which I like is:

    Vogels Evolution EPC4010 Universal Projector Support
    http://www.av-sales.com/projectors/html/vogels_universal_supports.html

    Vogels Mounting Instructions PDF
    http://www.av-sales.com/projectors/vogels-projector-mount.pdf

    Could someone please take a look at this and let me know if it will work with the AE700. Also, since I'm getting a DRH Slimline 96"/104" Screen (viewable area is a 50 cm drop from the ceiling), would I be able to use the lens shift (if mounted on the Voguls - NO EXTENSION TUBE, Projector standard 11 cm from the Celing), to project the image on to the viewable area using the Lens Shift? Any help would really really be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    PS: If possible, could someone please post a pic of the bottom of the Projector so I can see how its mounted. Thanks again :)

    Thanks for the info/help guys. The only thing wrong with the LMP Mount is that it doesn't seem to look as stylish as the Vogels (maybe its the pics), but it is cheaper, not by too much since I've managed to find the Vogels Mount for £101.39 Inc Vat (£30 less) at:

    http://www.robinsonselectric.co.uk/vogels_projector_brackets.htm

    I've just E-Mailed Vogels and am awaiting their reply. If they say that an AE700 can be mounted on it, then the Voguls Mount it shall be, if not, then the LMP Mount will have to do.

    My other question: Can I use the Vertical Shift as mentioned above to project my image correctly. Thanks


    Thanks again for your help :)

    Thanx 4 the pic Jack. It looks better than what I thought. Just that I'd prefer it closer to the ceiling. Thanx again.

    Hi yeskyes, sorry I haven't bought the Vogels yet as I'm still waiting for my projector from Komplett. I will let you know as soon as I have it.
