So what's it stapled to?
I used mdf boards but you could use 1x2s or 2x4s.
I was inspired by this video:
Toronto Illusionist and close-up Magician.

If you end up doing this, please post your results. Would love to see.
​Good idea but from a satefy stand point, depending on the material, it can be highly flammable. Usually one cannot leave exposed insulation material without a fire barrier.

What would be my best option for a small boardroom BUT it's surrounded with windows. We will have blinds but there is still quite a bit of light coming through. Need it mainly for presentations and need the details in the text.

1) Overpower daylight with some crazy high lumen beast machine
2) Get an indirect light rejecting screen
3) Lightmeter/ wall with structure that impedes light to create a dark area just for that off-wall.

Is money no object? Can you write off expenses?
Then try something along the lines of this.

Plan B then.
Forgot about it until now but was thinking of the wall adhering a giant chalkboard decal.
Similar to this

Although i did find some Class C 48 x 96" white hardboard that I could just paint at lowes for $20 online.
But they were out of stock of that one didn't look back further.
Chalkboard decal feels easier to deal with in concept.

P.S.

Question. new to projectors.

For that HC1040, I have a space that has two south facing windows so we do get a lot of light, but at night time, we only get the light from the street will it still cause a major degration to the quality?

I have that model. I watch it with the lights on despite being 17.5ft projection distance. The only stuff that looks bad with the lights on (3 bulbs with one facing the screen) is very dark shows, like Gotham or Arrow. Assuming you place it closer you will have an even brighter image.

Use this tool to have an idea about placement and brightness

Has anyone dealt with Epson’s warranty? After a year my projector is starting to show fuzziness/color distortion in the corners.

Not really sure what counts as replaceable.
