    Widescreen for Hall AV or not?

    We are looking to replace our aging Hall AV setup with a new projector and screen. I have had a couple of people in and one has suggested 16:9 screen whereas another has suggested 4:3. Mostly the the setup will be used for Powerpoints with occasional video. currently we have a 2m 4:3 screen.

    Should I be going 16:9 or not?

    I put in a 4mtr wide screen and a projector that supports both -mostly gets used in 16:9 but is big enough either way. Head was horrified at first but loves it now!

    I would go 16:9 - you can switch to 4:3 on the projector easily.
