180 deg FOV


22. August 2017 by Peter

This sexy abbreviation stands for 180 degrees Field Of View. That is my newest project!

The building of a shell was pretty fast put on pause when I could get two ultra short throw projectors for free!

  • So I started making drawings on paper.
  • Then I mounted projectors in the ceiling
  • Curved screen? No more sheets on the bed.
  • “Darn, those projectors”
  • Setting up P3D
  • Calibrating the picture

This is too much to write in a single article. So I will make a small serie telling about my different steps and trail’n’errors.

This Picture is my very first attempt – before calibrating anything.

  1. Why did you get the projectors for free?

    How does your new projector compare to your old type? Your old type can be had for cheap, and will a 3x/200 fov setup with those be satisfying?

      Hi Ola.
      I was satisfied with using one projector, so I guess adding two extra only will affect the experience in a positive way. 🙂
      I think the beadbreaker is the resolution of the projectors. With the old orange it was a bit difficult to read taxi-signs. It will not be crisp sharp, but I am sure it will be adequate. Remember most of the time there is nothing to see at FL 370. Perhaps 200 deg is too much. But I guess train and error will prove what is adequate.
      Cheers, Peter
