You need to ask your film professors if they are using 16mm film in their classes before you equip the room. We have had good luck with the Panasonic brand projectors. You need to give the vendors you are getting pricing from the dimensions of the room and the equipment you will be using with the projector in order for them to spec out the right projector.

I am working on installing a media viewing classroom in an existing
classroom. I am interested in any input anyone may have. Basically, my
only concern so far is that the room is a little wide and I am not sure
we will be able to get away with one projection system. I am looking to
install a ceiling mounted video projections system and a control booth at
the front of the room for DVD and VHS. Does anyone still show 16mm?
Should this be set up? How do the traditional film professors/students
feel about 16mm? Any input on any aspect of installing such a room would
be greatly appreciated.
