Projector advice

Since we moved to Switzerland I've missed watching movies on a large(r) screen and as such I'm thinking again about getting a Projector.

I've got my eyes on the following :
- Optoma HD25-LV ( https://www.digitec.ch/en/s1/product...ojector-434825 )
- Elite Screens Spectrum Electric120V ( https://www.digitec.ch/en/s1/product...-screen-327904 )
- Marmitek HDTV Anywhere ( https://www.digitec.ch/en/s1/product...mitter-3232013 )

Total cost excluding installation : ~2.100 CHF

I need some advice for the installation of the projector and screen :
- are there any companies specialized on this kind of installation? (not feeling very confident about drilling holes on the ceiling)
- do I need to ask the landlord for permission? (I'm expecting circa 8 holes for the entire installation, is there a difference compared to wall holes?)
- Are there any cheaper/simpler alternatives for the (full)HD wireless transmission? Will this interfere with the wireless network?

Thanks!

Re: Projector advice

What do you mean by HD wireless transmission? Wireless to the projector? This is something that Saygus is talking about, but I haven't seen a projector that doesn't need cabling to the data source.

Re: Projector advice

Some projectors have integrated hdmi wireless receivers (eg. https://www.digitec.ch/en/s1/product...099?pcscpId=11 ) but Optoma doesn't seem to have any models with this... that's why I'm including a Marmitek HDTV Anywhere device.

Re: Projector advice

Did you read the review (admittedly, only one) for that device?

Re: Projector advice

I bought mine 2 years ago, so don't know the latest models.

But surely the money spent on the wireless module would be better spent on a better projector with built in wifi capabilities? I recall Epson having some.

Edit: just saw that you posted a link to an Epson. So, why not the Epson?

Re: Projector advice

Price wise it doesn't seem to make sense - the other one is actually better... And I case use the HDMI transmitter in the future for other things.
