Grandview USA: Bars & Restaurants - Remember why you are purchasing your screen in this application. IE: Normally your reason for purchase (bottom line) is that you want to increase business.
If that is your bottom line; then you may want to consider the idea of being the best place to go see the 'game', 'movie', or whatever.
Bigger is generally better in this frame of mind. Don't try to be cheap in this arena. If you need to save money, go small.
How many times have you walked into a nightclub; bar, restaurant; and you can hardly see the picture, or the picture is so 'dim' you have to sit directly in front of the screen to see the picture?
Not only does your screen factor in, but you must remember; that the larger the screen, the more 'powerful' the projector must be. IE: the bigger the picture; the more capability is needed in the projector. It must be: bright enough, have enough contrast, and have high enough resolution, so that you can see the 2 piece projected image as clearly as if watching a brand new Flat Panel TV.
Grandview USA: General Suggestions - Your projection screen WILL make a HUGE difference. Do NOT go cheap on the projection screen.
If you are going to use a motorized screen, you should almost always order a screen that has a means of keeping the projection screen surface flat.
In the 1990's the major projection screen manufacturers all brought out motorized projection screens that have 'tensioning' rods that continually stretch the screen surface and keep it flat.
These cost about 2 to 3 times the cost of a 'non tensioned' screen. Take my advice; the reason this expensive type of screen has been around so long is because it is only way to insure a flat screen surface.
You won't be happy in time; if your screen has lots of wrinkles in it, due to not being tensioned.
If you want to save money and still have a tensioned screen; then you should buy a permanently installed 'fixed- frame' projection screen. This 'frame' screen stretches the projection fabric as a result of being firmly attached to the frame.
You'll have the same flat screen as with the tension screen; but you WILL have to deal with looking at the screen all the time, vs. a tensioned screen, which can roll back into its case when not in use.
