    We are looking at a boom projector or a short throw - the ceiling is high and 'wobbly' so I think vibration would be a problem
    And - you have to think - how would I clean the filters? We have no scaffolding tower so I couldn't get up there anyway

    You can! Draper Aero Mounts for LCD and DLP Projectors

    There are others which mount on lighting bars, but I don't have time to find that link at the moment.

    We have a good setup fairly local you. If you want a demo or look then PM me. It was installed by Dolphin Media but could be done by any competent installer.

    Ours is mounted on the rear wall and projects across the Hall with a special long range lens as our ceiling was very high. We wanted easy access by maintenance staff (us) using step ladder (small) instead of rear projection which may mean you have to have the projector up a height meaning maintenance becomes a problem.

    Rear projection doesn't require high mounting per-se. It may in your case, but all you need (loosely) is the projector at the top OR bottom of the screen. Normally, if at the top it will be inverted.

    The caretaker does the filter cleaning at one of my schools, as the ceilings are higher and the 'big steps' are needed. We do the bulb changing together with me at floor level mainly in fits of laughter because he's a dead ringer for one of the chuckle brothers so we have alot of 'to me to you'

    @Little miss - Who changes the light bulbs in the hall at present?

    They've recently kitted our hall out with a projector/electric screen combo and did a fantastic job. Our hall ceiling has to be 30 feet high at least.

    They've also kitted out our new 6th form with 13 interactive boards and the installer has done a VERY neat job indeed.

    Highly recommended. Veronica is our contact there.

    I think chrbb meant "Who changes the light bulbs in the hall? ... not the projector bulbs
