Hello,
I am making an immersion room for my yoga studio. I am requesting help with the best projector and software to project an image onto 3 walls.

Left wall is 9 feet high and 28 feet long. Middle wall is 9 feet high and 36 feet long. Right wall is 9 feet high 28 feet long. I am guessing a short throw or ultra short throw might be best due to customers being 5 feet from the walls in some cases. Please let me know if you can provide any guidance thank you!

This is going to take a highly custom setup and a lot of skill to not only install, but to get the software right. A really high end computer with multiple video outputs and custom mapping software will be necessary.

I'm not sure what companies really have that skill set, but generally, you are looking at some variation of this...

Multiple short throw/UST projectors will be required and they will need proper edge blending and color balancing to get things to work and look right. I would expect with a 9' height that at least two fairly high end projectors would be required on each wall, if not three. You are likely in the $5,000+ range at the very least for these models, but could easily be at $15,000 per projector in such a setup. This could pretty easily be $100,000 in equipment, which isn't really the type of thing that some forums on the Internet can give you the bets answers on.

Thank you for the response. I have seen multiple YouTube videos and researched plenty of companies that seem to have this mapping software that you can either lease or buy outright for under $1000. The videos I have seen them do look like they’re done with short throw projectors on each wall. I expect to spend $5000-$6000 on each projector.. I guess I was looking for recommendations on the best short throat projector that I could use to apply in this certain instance.Map Mapper is one of the 3d mapping softwares but there are multiple out there. . I am also not sure on how I would connect them together to make one image over multiple surfaces. Hoping to shed some light on those topics.

This is why it is so custom. It's typically going to use a Quadro card or a bunch of different short throw/UST models with edge blending built in. I would reach out to Panasonic, at the very least, for some idea of the hardware/software requirements to make something like this work and be effective. You may not need a ton of brightness, but getting the large image size is going to be the toughest part, and that's going to require a good short throw lens and projector, with the edge blending functionality. Covering more than a 16:9 or 16:10 screen area, will require a lot of projector power and more than one projector per wall.
