designing a home theater - step 2 - choosing a projector screen
Now that I have chosen my projector, the second option in my cinema design is the projector screen.
If you miss the first article about choosing a projector, here is: what I am looking for on the projector screen, the projector screen in my mind at first doesn\'t matter.
After doing a little research, I quickly realized that the projector screen had a lot to do with the clarity of the picture.
As I mentioned in my article on projectors, I\'m really looking for something clear.
My impression of the projector has always been a very clear image that is hard to see unless the room is completely dark.
I really want to minimize this impact in my settings.
Since my cinema has windows, the ambient light will be some kind of factor, and I expect that I sometimes turn on the lights to watch TV.
I don\'t know that choosing the right projector screen will have a big impact on clarity.
Different types of projector screens if you do any research on the projector screen then you know there are a lot of options for the projector screen.
Screens 4: 3 and 16: 9 have two basic aspect ratios.
The simple way is 4: 3 is an old TV format (
More like a square)
The new flat-screen TV format (
It\'s not a big deal for me, I want 16:9 because it\'s the new standard of our time.
The retractable or fixed frame has a projector screen that you can pull down, similar to what you found at school.
Another option is to fix the frame projector screen.
The room was a dedicated cinema in my case, so there was no need to get my screen back.
On a fixed frame, they say, the picture is of better quality because there is much less movement.
This is something I have never thought of or heard.
I often see white projector screens and apparently they also have gray and black ones.
I didn\'t understand the differences at first, but after a bit of research, it makes perfect sense.
The projector can\'t project black, so you basically add contrast through the dark screen (
The difference between the whitest white man on the screen and the blackest black man).
You can have a backlight screen if you have space, which means the projector is behind the screen.
In my case, I want to use all the real estate I have in the cinema, so I insist on using the screen lit in front.
A screen with a border on the edge or edge to make it look more traditional, or a screen with or without a border
This means that the picture can go all the way to the edge of the screen.
It doesn\'t matter to me when I start looking at the screen.
I saw the edge and no edge screen that looked great.
Acoustic projection screen or not?
Now if I had more space to put the speakers behind the screen, I might have chosen that.
The acoustic screen allows the sound to pass through it so that the central and left and right surround speakers can be placed behind the screen.
It would look beautiful, but since ambient light is more important to me than putting speakers behind the screen, I decided to focus on a screen that works with ambient light.
What screen size?
This is a bit of a tricky problem.
I want to have the biggest screen I can put on the wall, so my screen width is limited by the width of the wall minus the width of the left and right surround speaker.
My height is limited by the height of the wall at the top of the infrared repeater minus the space, minus the height needed to see the bottom of the screen from the back row.
Since I already know what my projector will be, I can use this very useful computing tool to calculate the screen size.
Because I know the model projector, it not only helps me determine the size of the screen, but also helps me determine where the projector should be installed on the ceiling.
Using this tool, I can make a decision on the 135 screen and the projector will be 178 away from the screen curtain wall.
The best projector screen
The white screen I see is the black diamond screen.
Basically, when the projector is off, there is a black screen on your wall, like a huge flat screen.
If the price is not an object, this is definitely the screen I will go --
For me, though it is.
The Black Diamond screen is more expensive than Epson 5040UB.
Too much for me.
Now I\'m looking for the best for my money because the Black Diamond doesn\'t fit my budget at all and I need to find something close to it to fit my budget.
I really don\'t want to spend more than $1000 on my screen, so that\'s the limit I set for myself.
I saw the elite screen and it seems to be a screen maker with a good reputation.
Their screens also fit my budget.
I ended up deciding that the elite screen was the brand I was going to buy and looking at the different types of screens they provided to see which one would be best for me.
The screen I ended up choosing was the Aeon 135 \"16:9 ambient light rejecting the ALR fixed frame edge free projection screen, the reason I chose this screen was because it got a good review, it is specially designed for rooms with plenty of light in the environment.
The spec also mentioned that it will work with the 3D movie I plan to use.
The screen is an edge.
Fewer screens, which means you can project the image all the way to the edge of the screen to get a really impressive display. Having a edge-
With a small screen, you can feel a huge flat-screen TV.
They also sent you the feel tape you can put on the edge to make it feel more TV but I like to have an image that takes up the whole screen.
Assembling the screen is a bit tricky.
I looked at the comments above and said watch out for the sharp metal edges on the frame and I know why.
In order for the screen material to stretch to the position that covers the frame, quite a bit of work needs to be done.
Once you use the screen material a little, you realize that it does have a lot of value. . .
You just want to take your time.
We basically start with the short side and connect the screen to the edge of Velcro on the frame.
This is the hardest part.
Once we have a small part connected at both ends, this is an issue that works around the framework.
Getting a Velcro connection is getting easier as you move around. A Nice Touch. . . Back-
This optional LED is also available on the screen-
Light kit for an incredibly sexy look.
I purchased the kit directly from the elite screen because they don\'t have the 135 model available on Amazon.
Optional LED for installation-
The lights at the back, KitThe-
The light kit model of the 135-inch screen is ZLED135H1.
The light is direct.
First of all, find out where the power plug you want the lamp to be, which will be your starting point.
Place the screen face down on the floor, start where you want the power plug, remove the tape cover and stick the light to the tilt back of the screen.
Once you turn around the screen, you\'ll have something extra, just cut one on their indicator line every few inches.
One thing to note is that the light strip is very sensitive to bending.
Be gentle and careful, don\'t twist the straps, try to get around the corner when turning --
Avoid sharp corners.
The backlight is worth it, and it brings a good effect to the screen.
My favorite light setting is low light under white light.
