Hi All, I am the IT Manager of a school in Lincolnshire. We are having our school hall kitted out with a new projector, DVD player and surround sound system. Main use will be simply for presentations, however Hall is also to be used for Media Studies (showing DVDs to pupils and exams). I've approached a supplier we have used before for installation of projectors and whiteboards into our classrooms, and this is what they suggest. Sanyo PLC XT20 Projector £1595 4 x 3m Electronic Screen £845 Protective Projector Cage £148 Projector Installation Kit £195 Projector Installation £295 Screen Installation £148 Electrical supply for projector and screen £184 Onkyo TX-SR505E Receiver £215 JBL Control Pro Speakers (4 pairs) £380 Wharfdale SW150W Subwoofer (x2) £396 Installation of audio system and setup £295 Double electrical socket added to existing circuit £96 Onkyo DVSP-404 DVD Player £99 So the overall setup will be a Sanyo PLC XT20 projector, 4 x 3m electrically operated screen, wall panel with inputs for VGA and DVI, HD DVD Player, AV receiver and 7.1 surround sound consisting of 8 speakers (two front and one each for LF,LR,LM,LR,LR,RR) and two subs. Now this is quite a large hall, estimating 20m long, 10m wide and 5m tall. I don't expect the quality to be cinema quality, but it needs to be impressive (to the staff and students, not the audiophile!). As I understand it, the DVD player will connect to the AV receiver via HDMI. The AV receiver will connect to the wall socket via a HDMI -> DVI converter cable (so we have the ability to connect a DVI source at the wall). There will also be a VGA cable running between the projector and wall socket to hook up a laptop using the VGA port. The AV receiver will connect to the projector using a HDMI->DVI converter cable. This is where I get a little confused. The projector is 1024x768. What will happen when we play a DVD through the projector with this setup? Will it work? Any opinions and comments on the whole setup are very welcome. Total cost is roughly £5k - I think this is a pretty good price as long as it works, sounds good and looks good! What does everyone else think? Hall has blackout blinds and with these down is pretty much pitch black. Thanks, Andy.
