    I have just brought my first PJ "Benq PE5120" and plan converting the spare room into a Home Cinema. The amount of information, tips and tutorials on this forum is staggering i can't thank you all enough, it's really pointed me in the
    right direction. But i can't seem to get my head around just how big a screen i can have, and which size would cover 16.9, 4.3 ect.
    I'm planning on making my own screen and will be using " White Front Projection Screen Material".

    Looking at the manual, a 4.2m throw distance will comfortably give you an 244 x 137cm image with a 45cm offset (distance from ceiling to PJ lens) for a 16:9 screen

    You will roughly get a 244 x 183cm image for a 4:3 screen with the same offset.
