    Look for a Barco data or graphics 801s to start yourself off, if budget is limited to about a grand. If you've more to spend, then a BD 808s. Shove it into a search engine and you should find a couple of helpful UK dealers B4 too long.

    The iscan Pro, HD etc are video scalers. A good machine, but always check that it is compatible with your projector- look for sync instability and vertical line wiggles. Again, you're coming in at the grand.

    Alternaitively consider using a PC with decent capture card.

    1.3 gain screen good. 6' to 7' wide, if you're sitting about 14' from screen.

    Afterwards I noticed the banner and realised that subtly wasn't required.
