I was quoted on a LX55 projector from Christie.this unit is made by Sanyo as the PLC-XP57L. has anyone used or is using one of these units or hve any dealings with them? the installation cost is $12,000.00, it's alot for something that there is no reviews on.

Fantastic feedback gentlemen! Thank you so much for your thoughts. The first community movie night 2 weeks ago was fantastic...we had such a good time. I'm really looking forward to this Saturday. It seems as though the park is quite dark, although our last movie screening was 2 weeks ago with just a sliver of a moon. This Saturday's moon will be more than half full and waxing. I can only hope for some cloud cover. You're right that cars drive by occasionally (maybe 10-15 over the course of the movie) and we could definitely see their headlights. The nearest street light is almost 100 yards away and has sodium vapor lights (orangeish glow...not very bright). I have a some friends who are photography buffs and have light meters, I'll see if I can borrow one this Saturday. I have a bid in on a used Sanyo PLC-XP45 at a local auction. The 3700 ANSI lumens and 800:1 contrast ratio should work quite well. If I lose that bid, I'll probably just buy the AX100. It has received great reviews and should work just fine in our venue.

So...all of the arguments above are very logical and settle on the fact that outdoor projecting requires as many lumens as you can afford. We are doing outdoor movie nights at our community park and have the luxury of using a Christie LX55 (with an LX40 as backup). These are being loaned to us by a very gracious Christie sales rep that lives in our neighborhood. I dislike imposing on them over the long term and will be looking to purchase our own projector. So far, I've purchased all of the equipment for the movie night and will also consider this with a projector. The Christie projectors have an incredible picture but their price tag is way, way outside my budget (my wife already thinks I am crazy!) My question boils down to this: would a consumer grade product, like the new Panny AX100 work well enough for outdoor? The screen is 11'x6' and we can place the projector as close, or as far, as necessary. We are using true projector screen material with a gain of 1.2. I appreciate any feedback you can provide.
