So here are a few pics of my very first screen video test. I am using our 5400 lumen projector, and old DVD player, (which I can't even find the resolution on) and I grabbed Finding Nemo, cause the colors are just awesome in that movie.
First up, even before sunset, is the CB 16x8 screen. I think it looks pretty darn good. Our screens have the blackout cloth, and I think it makes a big difference.

And a PO Ambient video for fun. I don't care for the 4x3 format on this screen.

Next up (it was already dark) we tested the CB 20x12. MUCH more impressive screen.

If you look close, you can notice the seam in the screen as a little brighter bar. I don't think it detracts too much from the experience, others may not even notice.

Our camera is not the best in the total night, but you get the drift.
Mission accomplished. We got our measurements for tie down ropes, and projector position. Last piece of the puzzle is the DVD player + head unit. I think we are gonna do a kids movie in 2 weeks for practice. Nephew wants to see Bolt on the big screen.
