Epson Pro Cinema G6900
WUXGA Home Video Projector

Setup and Configuration
Screen selection is important with every projector, but it is especially so for the Pro Cinema G6900. Despite the contrast rating of 5,000:1 (quite low by home theater standards), the picture can look very pleasing even on a white screen in low ambient light. However, it will look its best when it is paired with a contrast-enhancing screen. We matched the Pro Cinema G6900 with Draper's XS850E ambient light rejection screen, but it would work equally well with Screen Innovations' Black Diamond II or any number of contrast-enhancing gray or black screen fabrics. All in all, these screen materials give the Pro Cinema G6900's picture deeper blacks and overall higher contrast. However, as these materials run on the pricy side, adding a contrast-enhancing screen may add cost to the system.
The Pro Cinema G6900 is compatible with interchangeable lenses, but the projector is sold both as a bare body and as a package with the Standard Zoom lens. The Standard Zoom is a 1.82:1 lens with manual adjustments that can display a 120" diagonal 16:9 image from 11' to 20' of throw distance. The projector also has manual lens shift in both the vertical and horizontal, allowing for approximately 70% adjustment in either direction vertically and almost 40% adjustment to the left or right.
Due to this flexible lensing, the Pro Cinema G6900 can be installed either in a ceiling or rear shelf mount. A low table mount is also possible, though living rooms tend to be higher-traffic areas than theaters and you should consider placement to avoid both accidents and common walking paths which intersect the projection axis.
