The Projector Mount Kit is designed for use with our Simulator Series net. The Projector Mount Kit connects into the rear of the Simulator Series frame and is completely self contained. This means that you no longer have to attempt to connect your projector and mount to any ceilings, walls, etc. inside your home or facility.
The Projector Mount Kit assembles in less than 15 minutes using our Quick Color Connect System. It is designed to work with an Ultra Short Throw Projector and comes with a Premier Universal Projector Mount. It is made of powder coated steel and weighs approximately 16 lbs.
What is not included: A Projector, Simulator Software or Computer- you will need to obtain these items on your own. What Projector do we recommend? Our two favorites are the Viewsonic – pjd6683ws (Ultra Short Throw Projector) or the Infocus Model # in118hd. The cost for these projectors on Amazon is approx. $750.00 – $900.00 USD. Please note the Projector Mount Kit is designed only for our Simulator Series and will not work with our Pro Series net. If you are thinking about using a Projector with our Pro Series net, the mounting of the projector will need to occur off of a ceiling or off the ground via a side throw projector.

In our Simulator Series video we used a ViewSonic Ultra Short Throw Projector. ViewSonic Model #pjd6683ws at a 4:3 Aspect Ratio. You will want to use a 4:3 Aspect Ration rather than a 16:9 Aspect Ratio due to the squareness of our screen. To test the exact size of the picture that will show up on the Simulator Series screen with your projector model, consult the manufacturer projector distance calculator.
This allows you to plug in the projector model you are using, distance from screen, aspect ratio, etc. and provides you with an exact picture size ahead of time. Below is a link to a generic projector distance calculator, from Projector Central for you to use as an example – www.projectorcentral.com/projection-calculator.cfm
