Whether you’re shopping for a new projection screen
for your Home Theater, Boardroom or Classroom, we have what you need.
Available screens include; manual pull down, electric, fixed frame, tripod,
truss framed and more. Currently,
we have over 8,000 projections screens by Da-Lite and Draper available to be purchased
on-line or by phone.
Things to consider when
buying a projection screen:
- Make and model of the projector you'll be using. The
projector's lumen rating will be a key factor in deciding the proper screen
size and/or material gain you should choose. A great tool to use is our Projector
Throw Distance Calculator, simply select the manufacturer and model of
your projector. For best results, the Foot Candles (FC) should fall between
20 and 50.
- Audience seating distance: Ideally, the first row of seats
should be approximately 1.5 screen widths away from the screen.
- Ambient room light. Are you able to control the light in
the room? In the classroom or boardroom ambient light is almost always a
problem. These rooms probably were not intended for projectors. Windows may
not have shades or curtains. And the viewers most likely need at least
minimum light for taking notes. Normally, your only choice is a high gain
screen while sacrificing contrast. On the other hand, dedicated Home
Theaters are usually designed solely for a cinema like experience. Windows
will have heavy curtains or shades. And the walls, ceiling and floor will be
dark, low reflective colors.
