LOL yes that is ghetto, But hey if it works no big deal, Yea I think you will find alot more light blocked by using cardboard and use some duct tape for the seams and it will be preaty strong without being heavy. Looking good looking good.

My preliminary result.

I just got this LCD screen made for Diebold ATM machine off eBay. It comes with svga controller and very easy to take apart. So I spent 10 minutes, took it apart, and put it on a 3M 9550 OHP, and here is what I got:

Click the image to open in full size.

And this:

Click the image to open in full size.

one more (my hand wasn't steady enough for 1/4" shutter):

Click the image to open in full size.

More pictures are on my original post.

If you notice the last picture, you will see the brightness is not enough, even though the ~5 feet wide image was projected onto a Draper projection screen in a windowless conference room. I will replace the 9550 lamp with a 575W HWI in the future. Hope it will improve the brightness.

Smile Thanks

Probably not the correct place to put this but I want to thank all the names I have seen so many times over the last few months. I have taken the time to read every post I can get my eyes on and you guys are great. I am about to delve into this project tonight and see where it goes. I figure to spend at least a few weeks to come up with something. I got an Apollo A!-1000 out of a junk bin at work just neede a stageing glass that I cut myself and a new bulb (plan to go metal halide when I can find a ballast) and also was given a Infocus smartview 3600 by a neighbor moving and he used to use it for presentations. Wish me luck and any comments you would like to throw my way to get started. I have a digital camera so I hope to put my progress to pictures as it happens.....anyway thanks again for all the really great info!!!!

Again, nicely done Carangelo.

You may now want to add THIS (this is a link) to your projection lens....It eliminates some of the haze of your projected image by blocking out some of the useless light that is just scattering all over your screen and washing stuff out. Experiment with different sizes.

EDIT: It has a name (maybe just "apature" or something) but the name eludes me right now...There are a few posts in the FOrum on it...So if you can figure out what it's called then you can find posts explaining it's purpose...I don't think it's called a shroud though.
