We have a commercial projector stand that sits on the floor and extends about 6 feet up. Visually all you see is a 2" aluminum pipe with a small platform on the top. We position it between the 2nd and 3rd pew just inward from the side isle. We have found that the trapezoid correction feature is good enough to properly fill and frame the entire screen. I'm sure there are differences in focus across the screen but it is not noticeable. This makes it possible for a speaker to stand at the pulpit. I do have a wish for the future and that is that chapel screen's be rear-projection screens. This will make it possible to have the projector completely out of sight. This also would provide a brighter image overall. In some buildings it would even be possible to have the projector be permanently mounted in such way it is not seen but is still accessible without needing to use a ladder.
