Projection screen: types, sizes, materials
Most modern projectors are bright enough to provide a quality image on almost any surface, but if you're still using a painted white wall - you really should get a projection screen that will display more accurate colors and also add brightness to your image. Screen technology is not some fast-changing tech sector – the screen you buy today will likely last for many years before needing to be replaced.
Types of projection screens
Projection screens are divided into three main groups: fixed, portable and retractable. A fixed screen is mounted on a wall using suitable projection screen mounting hardware. As a mobile solution, consider a portable projector screen. Some models have built-in stands, while others may have tripod legs. Portable projector screens are good for presentations. Retractable screens are a popular choice because they offer some flexibility. You can unfold them when you need them and put them away when they are not in use. Retractable screens can be manual or equipped with an electric motor.
Choosing the correct screen size for projector
For the best results, choose a screen height that's at least a quarter of the distance to the farthest chair. Therefore, if the farthest seat is 30 feet from the screen, the projector screen size should be at least 7.5 feet high. The width of the it depends on the aspect ratio of the projector you intend to use. Some of the standard formats available include 4:3 projectors and 1:1 square format projectors (often used for presentations). 2.35:1 CinemaScope projectors are common choices with movie projector screens in cinemas, while 16:9 and 16:10 projectors deliver an HDTV or widescreen experience.
Projection screen fabric
When choosing a screen fabric, viewing angle and gain are the most important. The viewing angle affects how the screen appears at an angle, while the gain determines how well the screen reflects light. For instance, if the material has a screen gain of 1.0, it means that it reflects projected light with the same degree of brightness. A higher value means that fabric increases the brightness of the image, while a lower gain value means that the image loses some brightness.
