Projection Screens

Projection screens provide a platform onto which an image/video can be projected upon. They are designed for either front projection or rear projection. You cannot place the projector behind a front projection screen and vice versa.

As opposed to the traditional image projection done on a plain wall, projection screens provide a more uniform surface for enhanced video and picture quality. They also improve the brightness and contrast of an image and gives you more control with regards to lighting. For example, a dark projection screen is ideal for spaces with more ambient light as opposed to white surfaces. What’s more, flaws and imperfections on the wall may adversely affect the quality of the images portrayed.

There are a variety of projection screens to choose from that can be mounted either on walls, ceiling or on the floor of your venue. Electric projection screens are remote controlled and ideal for spaces like conference rooms with multiple uses, while manual screens require you to physically pull the screen upwards or downwards when setting it up.

Fixed frame projection screens are permanent once installed and are great for home, theatres and churches while portable screens can be carried anywhere. When looking for projection screens for your home theatre, church or conference rooms, there are some key considerations you should make.

•The size of the audience. While 100” screens are ideal for home theatre use, the bigger the audience, the larger the screen should be. A small audience may require smaller screens with more portability while large crowds will need large screens or many small screens at strategic locations.

•Compatibility with the projector. Bigger projection screens require more lumens to produce clear pictures. The projector used should be able to produce the required amount of brightness needed for the size of the screen chosen.

•Space. The size of the room must be able to accommodate the screen size you choose. There should also be enough space to allow for the required throw distance for your contents to fit perfectly on the screen. For a 100” screen, the viewer should sit at least 11 feet from the screen.

Be sure to get the best projection screen that fits your usage and event needs.
