Hey guys,

I know this topic has been beaten to death but I'm trying to get some insight for my personal setup. I'm looking at doing a 12x9 enclosure and screen and will be able to hit from 8' (9' may be a stretch) I want to get the projector as close to the ceiling as possible to avoid any hits (I'll have a number of tall people up to 6'9" playing) and have come up with these two options:

1. Optoma GT1080 - 7' from screen projecting ~10.75 x ~8 in a (4:3) - this will be 1' in front of the hitting area (any risk of hitting the projector?) - to get this directly overhead

2. BenQ 2150ST - 11' from screen projecting full 12x9 (4:3)- this will be 3' behind the hitting area (any risk of shadows with this?)

The other option would be to project 16:9 but I feel like there will be too much wasted space, image would only be 6.75'. I feel like 4:3 takes advantage of the height to fill the entire screen.

Thanks,
