After purchasing a home theater projector, unless it is a portable
projector and a portable screen, it is necessary to mount the projector and
screen so that the picture can be properly transposed onto the theater
Hopefully, by this point in time, the relevant factors for setting up a
home theater system have been well planned but that is not always the case.
Maybe the home theater was received as a gift, or maybe a spouse or friend
purchased the projector without considering how it was going to be used.
The projector mounts and the theater projector setup for both the screen
and the projector unit are as important as any factor in order to get the
optimal performance quality from a projection system.
Many screens for home theater systems are portable, meaning they can be
easily stored away when they are not in use. Some of the projector screens
will have to be mounted to either a wall mount, a floor mount or in some
cases, to a ceiling mount.
What factors should be considered when deciding where to mount the
Like any home furnishing, the projector screen is part of the interior
design or décor of the home, or at least of one particular room. If there
are children in the home, or perhaps pets, it may be advisable install the
projector screen mounts on the ceiling. This can often be done quickly and
easily as there is usually no wiring needed for the screen. The projector
mount has different needs which must be considered before mounting.
The home theater projector must be setup at a certain distance to get the
best quality from a system, whether at the minimum distance, the maximum
distance or somewhere in between. Keeping the distance constant will insure
better consistency and better quality experiences from the home theater
The Projector Unit
Mounting options for a home projector vary, but the most common types are
wall mounts, ceiling mounts and recessed mounts.
The wall mount is perhaps the most common mount used for the screen and
projector. It is important to consider the wiring needs when deciding which
mount to use. For a wall mount, wires are frequently exposed along the
wall. They can sometimes be hidden or fished through the wall to be more
The ceiling mount is also very popular for the home theater projector. The
two major factors to be considered for a ceiling mount are the clearance
from the projection unit as well as the swivel capabilities of the ceiling
mount itself. If there is not sufficient clearance to mount the projector
under the ceiling mount while allowing it to be moved, it will be difficult
to properly lineup and adjust your system. Wiring can also be a factor
here, but usually there is enough room in the ceiling to allow for easy
access to wire the unit.
If it can be accomplished, the recessed mount is a favorite among many home
theater owners. The recessed mount is a recession (Like a shelf) built into
an existing wall. This alleviates unsightly wires and offers perhaps the
best protection for your home theater projector.
