    Hi,
    We are building a new showroom for our retail store and would like to have a 100" +/- screen for playing satellite TV. Any suggestions for brand/etc. for an LCD projector and screen? Our budget is in the $7500 range including audio. (the audio will not need to be super loud or have subwoofers as it will be more "background"). I would like a projector that has a relatively low maintenance cost as I hear the bulbs need to be replaced every so often. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Greg.

    A small screen. Big screens and light don't mix.

    That would depend on three things: the brightness of the projector, the gain of the screen, and the amount of light spilling onto the screen.

    Can you place the screen where there won't be a lot of direct light shining onto it? Then you've won half the battle already (just like the retail stores put their TVs at the back where its not so well-lit).
