Hi !

Im in the process of designing my cinema room.

The sofa is currently 3.4m from where the screen will be.

Currently I have ordered a 120” screen with a standard viewing area of 2.6m x 1.5m

Do you think this will be ok or should I consider smaller ?

Many thx in advance

I sit just about 3m from a 120” @1080p and don’t find it an issue at all. If going 4k it should be even less of an issue

You'll be fine provided the top of the screen doesn't exceed a 15 degree vertical viewing angle. It's usually not the size that is a problem, but the height - looking up for prolonged periods cases neck ache, so make sure the screen isn't too high. The width won't be a problem.

Most commercial theatres have a seating range between 2 to 4 times the screen height, and you're at 2.26. That's closer than most people sit, but that's usually because most commercial theatre screens tend to provided higher VVA at those distances which makes it uncomfortable.

For a 3.5m viewing distance, keep the top of the screen below 94cms from seated eye level and you should be ok.
