In our stake center, there is an acoustic cloud feature in the center of the room along the ceiling, we hid a 5000 lumen short throw Epson projector in there, It is able to project onto the back wall (slanted wall designed for projecting from the pulpit) and FILLS it entirely from side to side. The projected image is 18 ft across and about 14 ft tall. Very nice when used for large gatherings. (Such as stake conference.) The projector is fixed mounted at 23' from the floor and completely obstructed from view.

That sounds like a good solution. We've been told very sternly that no permanent installation will be allowed, which is a bummer. They should design buildings with this in mind. A hidden projector, permanently installed, would look much better than the stuff I cobble together to make it work (this stacks of hymn books and slanted music stands).

The way it has been phrased to me, and I live by in our buildings, the stake president is in charge of the building. He requests from the FM group what is needed for the building, and (barring any policies that state otherwise), they are to work together to get it done. I have a wonderful Facilities Manager who is willing to work with us. I also have talent in my stake from various vendors and whatnot in the electronics/AV world that donate time/labor for these type of projects. The long and short of it is, (quoting a former member of my stake presidency) "It is much better to be aesthetically pleasing to the eye, than to have something in the chapel that just works." (I may have butchered what he said, but it is close enough.)
