What is the "Ideal" or recommended height for the screen in a front projection system? Our screen will be 80" and the viewing distance will be about 11 or 12 feet. Is it OK to be above eye level, or should we try to get it down lower? I'm trying to decide how much of an extender I will need for the ceiling mount, and also what type of stand (how high) I can use to hold the electronics up front and still fit beneath the screen.
I have seen recommendations for the bottom of the screen to be at eye level in the seated position, or eye level to be 1/3 of the way up from the bottom of the screen (that seems a bit low to me, especially for a guy who wears a progressive lens). Anyone have any personal experience with this who can help me out? Thanks in advance.
ps not sure if this is the best section for this question, but it seemed like basic setup to me.:p
