This projector (BENQ MW523) is going to be set up in a fixed position of a “quiet room” with some other lighting and better loudspeakers, as to make the room quiet you have to put more noise in (it took me a while to get my head round the concept; it was through listening to Radio Maria NL that I worked it out).
The plan is the seniors at my work can in there sit there and look at scenes as if they have gone to the woods/seaside (or the room could be used for watching movies/listening to music); to get the picture sizes right I am testing it in a conference room each evening…
This is HD on an angled wall
but that makes it difficult to measure the distance; so this old bedsheet is hung up to be more vertical)
SD 480p 4:3 video projected on to the sheet
and HD 16:9 (with local geese)
I got a spare bedsheet from the nurses downstairs (2600mm x 1600mm) and managed to project an image 2360mm x 1300mm onto this keeping the projector (including cables) within a distance of 3800mm raaaSeptember 12, 2014 at 12:31 am #1278161General LightingModerator
there was this 1970s era store cupboard already in the room which would have to be hauled out of the way of the screen in any case; it turns out the projector sits nicely inside it at just the right height – there are 3 holes made on the RHS for the ventilator fan exhaust; which keeps the whole lot below 33 degrees Celsius (eventually that will have a louvre grill put over it) and 2 for cables at the back; otherwise when not in use it looks just like a 1970s cupboard raaa
I have to put these signs on stuff because of EU safety rules..
and I found this video for Daftfader 😉
I’d seen a Dutch version of the original (the dude also sings about buying a load of geese (which are the most expensive of poultry to keep and raise)) but this one is fairly recent; Paul Vaes is a Dutch actor and singer who trained in the USA and has been in a few films and many theatre productions..
Mijn hele hof vol pluimvee: eenden en ganzen
Al dat gefladder en gewiek maakt da theel de stad om verlossing bidt.
Maar datgekwaak, gekwek, gekwetter, doet mij dansen, klinkt in mijn oren als muziek: want heel de stad hoort hoeveel ik bezit!
