I need to mount a projector in a multipurpose room/gym. The projector only needs to be active one day when the gym is being used as a meeting room. All other days of the week the projector would be removed from the gym - I don't think I need to go into the whole "anything on the gym ceiling is a target" explanation, I hope
It has bassketball goals that retract - so as i was looking at them it occured that since they swing down and up they could do double duty as a projector mount that would be up and out of the way, but when lowered it would be relatively easy to get the projector on and off. We would be displaying on the side of a wall so exact placement isn't key, as long as it's close.
I'm curious if anyone has ever done such a mount, and if you have any ideas for something that would be easy to connect and disconnect, but would be secure. Power and video would be permanently attached to the baskeball goal - the idea is lower the goal, mount the projector, plug in power and video, raise the goal and off we go! Afterwards (and well after the projector cools!) reverse the procedure.
Crazy? The other idea is mount a 50" display on the wall, but I'd rather move a projector over a screen! Or if anyone has a permanent install for a screen that's "gym proof" - I'm open to ideas!
