Surface Selection Guide

In the case of multiple usages, choose the surface that will fulfill the least critical of your projection needs. This may be determined by the projector’s lumens output. If, for example, you will be using a medium output projector (under 1000 lumens) and a higher output projector (over 1000 lumens), choose the surface that will work with the lower output projector.

Our projection screens are all available in a variety of screen surface materials including:

  • Matte White

All surface materials are foldable, washable and available with snaps or grommets.

MATTE WHITE FRONT PROJECTION SURFACE
  • Gain .88 at 45° off center

Matte White is the best all-purpose surface material and for use in wide seating venues and/or short focal lengths. Matte White evenly distributes projected light over a wide viewing angle. Colors remain bright with no shifts in hue.

MATTE WHITE BLACKOUT FRONT PROJECTION SURFACE
  • Gain 1.24 at 45° off center

Black vinyl laminated on the back side of this material eliminates the need for a blackout surface. Greater opacity and image quality in high ambient light conditions with no backlight interference.

MATTE BRITE® FRONT PROJECTION SURFACE
  • Gain 1.4 at 45° off center

Matte Brite® is recommended for use when ambient light is a concern. This surface is designed to offer the best combination of gain & viewing angle for optimal image quality.

REAR PROJECTION SURFACE
  • Gain 1.8 at 45° off center

Rear Projection surfaces provide excellent color rendition, image contrast, registration, and a wide viewing angle. Rear Projection is a translucent, neutral gray vinyl rear projection surface material offering high transmission and low reflectance values.

2-VU — FRONT OR REAR PROJECTION SURFACE
  • Gain .83 at 45° off center

A versatile surface material, 2-Vu provides front OR rear projection capability and eliminates the need for changing surfaces to accommodate varying projection methods. Under controlled lighting condition the material provides a wide viewing angle and crisp images.
