We have an opportunity to upgrade our average after a tornado damaged our sanctuary. We have been thinking about using large monitors or TVs instead of a projector to display words, videos, etc. With all the work being done I can run wire and they can brace the wall for mounting the monitors if needed,so nows the time. The room is about 40' deep and 80' wide. We're thinking about replacing our single long throw projector with two TV, one on each side of the stage since the room is wide. Is it a good idea to use monitors/TV instead of a projector? Should we use TVs or computer monitors? I'm not sure about things like resolution. We'll generate all the video from laptop pc. Any idea how to figure how big the screens ned to be? The farthest away anyone sits will be about 50:, and some will be only 15' from the screen. I know 50"-55" TVs are cheap. What type of cable do we want to use to feed the signal (about a 70' run). SteveSent from my 831C using Tapatalk
lumen rating on projectors are directly related to screen sizeand throw distance and ambient lighting. Rear projection (if you have the space ) will be a better cost effective choice
I don't know about rear projection anymore. You need a really bright projector, then have to deal with hot spotting. It's very rare now that we install rear projection, usually rear is replaced with front, or LED wall. Rear works better with plexi or glass screens, but they aren't cheap.
I do think we are going to need to use projectors, if only for image size. We can afford at max 65" diagonal TVs. Those are about 34" tall. The only metric I've seen is to use the screen height as 1/8th to 1/10th of the distance you can see it. So a 34" screen at 1/10th the distance would be a max if 340", or about 28 feet. My back row is 39 feet from the front wall. So we'd need at least 90 inch screens, and we can't afford those. So, back to projectors I think. Unless someone else has better info (this was from the internet, so it must be true!
