LG Hecto screen compatible with 4k projector?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

New to the forum here. I've been using the LG Hecto for the past 3 years now, it still works perfectly.

I've been tossing up the idea of going 4K, Sony's flagships are over my budget.

1. Hisense apparently bring out a short throw 4k, no idea on price yet :(

2. Benq w11000 is looking quite good on Bang for Buck. (I understand its not true 4k like the Sony)

Question for everyone.

Forum member Blackman I understand you also have the LG Hecto, hopefully you've done similar research or testing.

I have a dedicated windowless theatre and the 100" screen fits perfect between my pair of KEFQ900.

I remember reading somewhere regarding the Hecto screen that its got some sort of angled glass to direct the light towards the viewer, I can't seem to find it and wondering if that is true?

If its just a normal screen, then it answers my question that I can use it with a 4k projector.

Otherwise can I reverse mount the screen and have the 4k projector shoot down from the ceiling?

Cheers,

Ron

      Item: The all new native 4K Sony VPL-VW270ES 4K Cinema Projector (new 2019 model with all new lens) and Majestic Screen package is now available.
      Genuine Australian stock! This model is available in black or white.
      Groundbreaking price for native 4K cinema projection!
      RRP at $10,317 based on package with 100 inch Majestic Screen at full RRP.
      With 2 RF 3D Glasses and premium Majestic Evo4K Screen and top of the line Peerless geared projector mount! 
      Priced From: $8289 inc GST and delivery Australia wide.
      Payment Method: Pickup - Direct deposit, cards 1%.

      Extra Info: This model doesn't have the lens memory feature that the 570ES has, however it has motorised zoom, shift and focus so you could use a 235 screen, it would just take a little longer to switch between formats when required.. perhaps 30-40 seconds using the remote. Otherwise a 16:9 format screen would mean no changing sizes or messing around with the remote.

      I have been feeding a 4k signal from my oppo directly to the projector, so what ever the specs says the projector takes 4K input and shows the signal as 4K in the screen.
