Not to get into the whole active/passive debate, but aren't you losing 
at least 50% of the vertical resolution, and likely quite a lot of the 
horizontal as well (perhaps 50% again)?  If there is any interlacing 
in the delivery, then you are suffering even more from that.  You are 
likely looking at a 960x540 image (best case), but more realistically, 
an image with less clarity than DVD.

I did see a nice demo of passive projection, but the demo used two 
projectors so that there would not be a loss of resolution, provided 
that the projector images were perfectly aligned.
