Projector screens are available with a variety of options ranging from screen material to proportions and sizes to help optimize the image quality of your projector. When deciding on a screen, it is important to consider a few important factors, such as the projector you are using, or how much ambient light is entering the room. When deciding on the size of the screen, many projectors have recommendations for image size that they can project from a certain distance without losing image quality. Ambient light is another factor that can affect image quality; Choosing the right screen material is one way to fill this gap.
Note: Before deciding on a screen, you are advised to decide on a projector first.
Choosing the right mounting option for your application should be your first consideration when buying a home theater projector screen. We offer three types of mounting options for home theater – manual, fixed frame, and electric projector screens.
Manual Projector Screen – Most economical choice, the screen has to be pulled manually to display the viewing surface.
Fixed Frame Projector Screens – Highly Fixed Frame Projector Screens for Dedicated Home Theater Rooms. A stationary frame projector screen gives a flat viewing surface permanently excited and installed in a stationary place.
Electric projector screen – the most elegant and expensive style of screen. Can be used with an IR remote to increase and decrease the screen. A custom casing can hide the projector screen.
Projector Screen Considerations – Some other features to consider when buying a home theater screen are designer casing, tab pull, adjustable masking border, and much more.
Projector Screen Features:
Screen Gain – A relative measure of the reflection of the screen. A higher screen gain will increase the brightness of the screen, so the white areas in an image will appear brighter
Screen size – The main thing to consider when deciding what size screen to buy is the size of the room and the settings. You want to buy a screen that is suitable for your application and will not overwhelm your audience. Another important factor is the power of your projector. Projectors are limited in the size of the image that they can display without losing quality. Ideally, the screen size should occupy a minimum of 30 view fields for viewers. The rule of thumb is to use a screen height that is about one-third the distance from the screen for viewers to sit on.
Screen Material – It is important to select the right screen element to display the best image quality. Seat configuration, projector model and type as well as ambient lighting are all issues that should be considered. The screen metal is made in different shades and textures to integrate the output qualities for all of the different DLP and LCD projectors on the market today. Each projector screen produces different screen materials.
