You might think ceiling mounting a gaming projector is extremely difficult, but it’s not. We’re here with detailed instructions that’ll help you get it done yourself, without having to call a professional for help. The projector we’ll be using is the BenQ X3000i, which is an advanced gaming projector that’s perfect for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.
Of course, on the path to setting up your dream game room, there are a few things to take into consideration above all else. You need to figure out how big of a screen you can fit, and we suggest you go for as big as possible, because that’s the benefit of projectors – big screens. Then, based on the size and shape of your room, calculate the best position for the projector. Next is making sure that position is topped with a ceiling that can accept the BenQ universal ceiling mount. You can’t use false or dropped ceilings, as the surface needs to be solid and dense material to support the weight of the projector.
The next step is choosing your screen, unless you prefer to project onto a wall. We recommend a tab-tensioned light rejecting screen for serious gaming. Such a screen will ensure you get the best visuals in your big screen gaming.
OK, here’s everything you need to know, both for preparation and actual installation!
