Need a little help determining optimal placement for each.
My ceilings are 7'3". I've just purchases the Infocus 7205 with a Da-Lite HC 92" screen. I know the distance will be between 12 and 13' but not sure on best height.....?
Thanks!

it really depends on personal preference but the i believe the rule is usually 2/3 of the screen above eye level, 1/3 of the screen below eye level...while seated of course. this is roughly how i have mine set up and seems to work just fine for me

Check the projector instructions to see what the allowable height for the projector is given your choice of screen placement. Usually the projector must be level with the top edge of the screen. If the projector height is not correct, the picture will be trapezoidal rather than rectangular (keystoning) which you may or may not find objectionable. Your projector may or may not have a keystone adjustment to allow for different projector heights and fine tune the shape of the picture.
