    Cheap Curved Screen Set-up started w/Immersive Display Lite 2

    Hey Guys,
    Just wanted to update you with some pictures with my latest sim project. I started on my visuals and so far am very pleased with the progress. So far I have less than 750.00 invested and that includes 2 projector's, cables, materials. I will be getting 3rd projector in the next few months.
    I can't say enough so far about how easy the software is to set-up and adjust and then to tell you that it cost only 58.00us would make me sound like a liar!! I have NOT done any edge blending yet. I'm waiting on version 1.8 to come out at the end of the month which will put a frown on everyone else in the sim world which bought someone else's much higher priced solution.
    Specs to date:

    4' by 16' screen (24' soon)

    Two Optoma HD70 projectors (3rd soon)

    Behr Silver screen paint

    Matrox TH2GO 2560x720 mode

    Please excuse the quality of the pics as there were taken with my cheap phone camera. The 'seem' you see is not the screens but 2 things, no edge blending yet and one pj has a new bulb and other is at 2500hrs!! New bulb coming soon for that one! LOL
