To ensure maximum benefits from video projection setups, Elite Screens offers three tips on how to properly install any projector screen in meeting rooms and home theatres.
Projection Screen Installation Tip 1:Ensure that your head is at a comfortable level. This can be done by understanding your eye level. On average, a person’s eyes are at a level between 42-50” off the floor when seated. A safe sweet spot or viewing level to work with is to assume about a 48” average for most people in that room. Bear in mind that the seating height is pivotal for this calculation.
Projection Screen Installation Tip 2:Your eye level should align with the boundary line between the top 2/3 and bottom 1/3 of the screen. With your eyes aligned 1/3 of the way up on the screen, the least amount of eye, neck or head movement is required for the viewer to easily view everything happening on the screen. So if your eye level is 48”, this should also align with the bottom 1/3 measurement of the screen’s height.
Projection Screen Installation Tip 3:
Comfort and perception significantly enhance the viewing experience in home theatre systems. An accurately mounted screen prevents you from coming across perceived visual distortion. The images appear naturally as your eyes would see it in real-time. This also prevents unnecessary neck and eye fatigue from disrupting your ability to sit through a movie, presentation or gaming session.
