It took a couple of weeks of dust all over me and paint that wouldn't wash off but made it this far.

Is that ambilight after your screen? Made it yourself? How?
Does it change with the content on screen?

Wow this setup is amazing. I've never seen someone take such a great picture of a projection screen before.

Definitely in for more info on the ambilight setup

Thanks! It is a bit on the expensive side.

Does it change with the content on screen?

It's integrated in to the frame of the screen. The color doesn't change with the content on screen. There is a remote that allows you to change the color and brightness.

Although still expensive, the price has dropped more than $1000 from the price in that article.

I did a quick video when I first put the screen up. You can see me change the colors of the screen.
