Screen Size Viewing Distance Calculator

This calculator will help you get the best viewing distance for your home theater screen within 2 seconds by adding the values and clicking on the calculate button.

How Does This Calculator Work?

  1. You need to enter the screen size of your home theater screen in a diagonal to this tool. Don’t worry every size of TV is identified in diagonal. If it is written 75 inches on a screen, it means that the diagonal size of the screen is 75 inches.
  2. Now, click on the resolution of your screen. The resolution of the screen directly affects the viewing distance of it.
  3. After that, you have to click on the calculate button and you will get a value in feet.
  4. This value is the best viewing distance for your home theater screen.

What About the viewing angle described by SMPTE?

Don’t worry this calculator completely satisfies the viewing angle of 30 degrees described by the SMPTE because this calculator is based on the Sony Asia recommended values.
I have personally tested it and it works the best. Also, Sony is one of the pioneers in the digital world. They research every single piece of their claims and work before they make it public.

I'm Ayaan khan, a freelancer and a Computer Science degree holder from P.E.S. College. After my degree, I started an internship with my father in his home theater showroom. After working for a month I realized that this is the best job in the world for me and it could be turned into a passion. Fast forward to when my internship ended, I joined my father as a full-time home theater equipment tester. I test new equipment and approve it before it can be installed in the customer's house. I love to test equipment and sometimes love to install it by myself in the customer's theater room. I have the right experience and knowledge to learn from my articles. In my Free time I write & answer questions here on AVSFORUM. Every Article on Homelytainment is curated according to Homelytainment's Editorial Policy and Sponsorship Policy.
