Projection whiteboards are a handy tool for office or classroom environments. This configuration makes it possible to draw and write directly onto the surface. These whiteboards are specially finished to be paired with a projector and therefore work much better for this purpose than your standard whiteboard which can often be too reflective and/or glossy for a projector.

DIY Projector Screens

A DIY projector screen is cheaper, allowing you to use that savings to upgrade your sound system, or projector. However a diy projection surface is rarely better than a quality store bought one.

Projector Screen Paint

Projector Screen Paint is a fantastic, newer alternative to an actual movie screen, especially if cost is a factor. One gallon of projector screen paint can provide a surface area between 92" and 240" of diagonal viewing space.

And don't think you need to have permanent wall space in order to use this- you can always paint this onto a large board or other object to create your own portable surface.

Of course, the viewing quality won't be the same as an actual movie screen, but for basic needs, this is a great option. A normal projection screen in that size would cost hundreds just to ship alone and requires multiple people to install. Screen Paint allows 1 person to use 1 gallon of paint and 1 roller to create an immersive projection experience.

Projector screen material

The projector screen material can make all the difference in the way your image appears. Different surfaces have different reflective properties. Some are cheap and some are quality. The screen materials have different textures and even come in different colors.

What are projector screens made of?

Most projector screens are made of vinyl, high grade plastic, spandex, rubber and polyester fabric. You can also find ones made using pvc, canvas and fiberglass. The best projector screens are made using vinyl or spandex.

Regardless of what material is used to manufacture a movie screen, it is coated with magnesium carbonate, titanium dioxide or barium sulfate for enhanced visibility of the light which is directly related to the amount of light which is getting reflected from the surface. When the motion picture industry first took off there was actual silver embedded in the material to make it more reflective. This is where we get the term “the silver screen”.

Projector Screen Colors

Almost all projection screens come in one of three colors: white, gray and black. Each one has it’s advantages and disadvantages.

White Screen

A white projection screen will always be the best option for a room that is totally dark (full light controlled) It will also allow you to watch it from any angle as most gray and black screens have a smaller viewing cone. The white screens are also relatively less expensive.

White screens are also typically better for offices because most content projected in an office has white background. Projecting on a non-white surface just wouldn’t quite look right.

Gray Screen

Gray projection screens tend to have ambient light rejecting properties which allows them to be used in the daylight. They will also have better, richer colors. This improved contrast is why many manufactueres refer to their gray screens as "high-contrast" models. The only downside to grey screens is that depending on the surface, they may have a smaller viewing cone.

Black Screen

Much like the grey ones, black projector screens tend to be ambient light rejecting. Where they really stand out is by having a black surface black movie screens give you the darkest darks and black levels. The down side to black screens is that their white levels are typically somewhat less accurate.

What is the best color for a projector screen?

The best projector screen color really depends on where you will be using it, how much light the room has and what you’ll be using it for.

Screen Texture

When it comes to projector screen texture you ideally want a textureless surface. This will give you the best picture quality.

Screen Gain

A projector screen works by reflecting the light back from your projector to your audience's eyes.

The brightness of the image reflected back off of the display's surface is measured in units of "gain", gauging the reflectivity of that surface.

The gain number represents a ratio of light that is reflected back from a surface from a light source.

A screen with a gain measurement of greater than 1.0 infers that the image projected back off of the surface is brighter than the image being projected at the surface.

For example; a movie screen with a gain of 1.5 will project back the light 1.5x brighter than the light being projected at the screen. A 1,000 lumen projector aimed at a screen with 1.5 gain will be perceived at 1,500 lumens. The display achieves this by focusing the light into a more narrow reflective angle, instead of uniformly reflecting the light in all directions. This is why higher gain screens have a smaller viewing angle.

A projector screen with a gain measurement of .8 will reflect back at 80% of the original brightness. That same 1,000 lumen projector will be viewed by the audience at only 800 lumens.

While it might seem like you’d always want a higher gain, brighter doesn’t always mean better. A projector screen with a lower gain has a wider viewing angle so if you have a wider space a lower gain would be better. Lower gain screens also help prevent hotspotting and reflect colors more accurately. Lower gain screens also help to bring out more vivid blacks and enhance a projector's native contrast ratio.

Special Features

Some screens are constructed with special features. These refer to a unique characteristic of a screen’s design, implemented to either improve the projector’s performance or to add further utility to the screen. These premium features will help take your home theater experience to the next level.

Ambient Light Rejecting

Any light source other than your projector threatens to wash out the image on your display surface. Ambient Light Rejecting or ALR projector screens have a surface that prevents ambient light from washing out a projected image. They achieve this by reflecting the light away from the source using microscopic sawtooth teeth.

These screens are best suited for use in a multi purpose or living room where daytime watching is necessary and black out curtains aren’t available.

Acoustically Transparent

An acoustically transparent projection screen allows sound to pass through the screen material allowing for speakers to be placed behind the screen, maximizing the viewing and listening experience. There are two types of acoustically transparent cinema screens; Woven and Perforated.

Woven screens use a porous surface (like a bed sheet) which allows sound to pass in and out. There are two disadvantages to this design type: You lose more light and it does not render 4K as well due to the textured surface. If you are planning to have your screen come down in front of a TV or reflective surface woven screens are the better option.

Perforated screens have very tiny holes throughout the surface that allow sound waves to pass through. This allows you to lose less light than that of a woven screen and can render a 4K resolution.

Rear Projection

Rear projection requires that the projector be positioned behind the screen. Rear projection surfaces are partially translucent.

Unlike front projection, rear projection surfaces are always tensioned by default. Because this configuration requires that the projector be placed behind the screen (facing the audience) one of the disadvantages of rear projection is that it requires more space than front projection.

Because of this, rear projection screens are less commonly found in home cinema rooms.

However, there is an advantage to rear projection over front projection - there’s less chance of someone obstructing the projected image. Rear projection is most commonly used in professional applications like trade-shows and theaters.

Tensioned

A tensioned projector screen refers to an electric or manual screen that has rods or a wire that pulls the screen material to present a flatter more uniform projection surface. The tensioning feature eliminates the occasional creasing, waviness or other imperfections a non tensioned screen might have. Tensioned electric screens are also necessary to support 4K and above resolutions.

Fixed frame screens are tensioned by default.

One of the pain differences you’ll find between cheap projector screens and quality is that premium ones will be tensioned giving you a much better picture quality.

Ultra Short Throw

An Ultra Short Throw projector screen is specially designed to enhance the image from an ultra short throw projector or laser TV. These projectors use special wide angle lenses and mirrors to “throw” the image onto the screen from a very short distance.

To help these UST projectors, the UST screens are ambient light rejecting and reflect light in such a way that only the light from the projector is reflected back to the viewer giving you a much brighter image.

Curved Projector Screen

As the name implies, a curved screen is slightly curled. A curved projection screen has several benefits for home cinema. The curved edge allows your peripheral vision to become more involved and immersed than the viewing on a flat screen.

This benefit is mostly seen when the curved screen is set up as a 2:35 to 1 or 2:4 to 1 aspect ratio. This is known as anamorphic widescreen and is most commonly seen in commercial movie theaters. You can also use curved screens using a Panamorph lens attachment to your projector.

Screen Format

A screen’s format can be best understood as the specific rectangular shape of the screen. Sometimes this is referred to as the projector screen’s aspect ratio. It tells you the ratio of width to height.

16:9 Projector Screen (HDTV Format)

The most common aspect ratio in home theater today is 16:9 (HDTV format). This is the aspect ratio that modern-day television content is broadcasted in. When you watch programs on Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube, Hulu, etc, or play video games, the format you will most likely encounter is 16:9.

If you plan to watch both TV and movies a 16:9 screen is the recommended aspect ratio.

16:10 (Widescreen)

Most computer screens are 16:10 format. The distinction between 16:9 and 16:10 is minimal. While the 16:9 shape has 9 units of height for every 16 units of width, 16:10 has 10 units of height for every 16 units of width.

Without closer inspection, they tend to look the same. However, their applications tend to be different. Since computers display in 16:10, this format is often the preferred choice in professional applications (conference rooms, board rooms, trade shows) as it allows you to get slightly more information on the screen than 16:9.

So if you're using your projector for business purposes a 16:10 projector screen is what we'd recommend.

Cinemascope (2.35:1 and 2.40:1)

2.35:1 Aspect Ratio

Classic films were most often shot using a 2.35:1 Cinemascope aspect ratio. So if you are a cinephile wanting the vintage movie theater experience in the privacy of your own home without the black bars, a 2.35:1 Cinemascope format is the way to go.

2.40:1 Aspect Ratio

For modern movie cinephiles, 2.40:1 Cinemascope is the way to go because most current films are shot with the 2.40:1 aspect ratio. So if you are wanting the contemporary movie theater experience in your own home theater, get a 2.40:1 Cinemascope projector screen.

4:3 (Video Format)

Video format is the original TV shape that was popular before many years ago, back when the TV was not a flat-screen - the old tube television, VHS and low resolution computer outputs.

The reason why 4:3 Video format still exists in the projection screen world is because it is a versatile design, not to mention that a lot of content still exists in its original 4:3 shape. In the case of 4:3 there are 4 units of width for every 3 units of height.

1:1 (Square Format)

While there’s almost no video content in square format, there is a reason that this format is still popular: for screens that can be adjusted, square format can accomplish all the other formats.

For example, if you’re using a tripod screen, you can lock the height of the screen at various points in order to achieve various aspect ratios.

Another reason square format screens still exist is that it is optimal for slide projectors or overhead projectors.

Masking (Multi Format)

A multi-format screen allows for more than one aspect ratio to be offered by employing a masking device. While most screens do not offer this feature, there are few select displays which do.

There are two kinds of masking: horizontal masking and vertical masking. In the case of horizontal masking it is the width of the screen that remains constant, and in vertical masking it is the height of the screen that remains constant. For example if you are watching cinemascope content on a 16:9 screen the height of the screen can be reduced to fit the aspect ratio with horizontal masking.

Projector Screen Size

Whoever said “size doesn’t matter” has never witnessed the glory of a 4K 120 inch projector screen in their home.

The size of the screen, both its width and height, will be limited by the dimensions of the wall you plan to install it on.

How do you measure the screen size?

Because there are so many different aspect ratios it would be difficult to compare a screen’s height or width. That’s why projector, television, computer and even phone screens are typically measured using the diagonal. This also allows you to compare surface areas much more easily.

What size projector screen should I get?

The projector screen size you should get depends on what it’s being used for.

Some people’s personal preference is to have the largest screen possible while others prefer to have the optimal size to distance ratio for their screen.

Size For Home Theaters

If you’re planning to use it in your home theater you likely want a screen between 100 inches and 150 inches. This of course depends on the size of your media room and where you’d be sitting.

Size For Large Venues

If you’re planning to use it for a larger space like a church projector screen or other large venue you’ll likely want to get a screen over 150 inches.

How much does a projector screen cost?

The cost of a projector screen can run from $50 for a cheap projector screen to $4000 for a premium home theater screen to tens of thousands of dollars for very large screens that you would find in a commercial movie theater.

When it comes to quality items that are worth getting, most home cinema screens cost between $400 and $4000.

The projection screen price is determined by a number of factors like the size of the screen, the type of screen it is, the type of surface it is and the special features.

Why do premium projector screens cost so much?

While you can find a cheap projector screen for under $100, these screens are little better than a bed sheet and about the size of a hand towel.

A premium cinema screen on the other hand is a scientifically engineered piece of technology. They’re made of longer lasting material. They give you significantly better picture quality. They bring out the best in your projector.

Is a projector screen worth it?

Yes projector screens are worth it! While there might be some initial sticker shock, when you see the image projected on a 120 4K projector screen you instantly know that your screen was one of the best purchases you’ve ever made.

Where to put your projector screen?

Where should you put your projector screen in your home theater?

The general recommendation, for where to put your projector screen is 10“ to 12” of screen diagonal for each foot of viewing distance. That distance is eyes to screen. It's a pretty simple calculation.

If you will be sitting 10' away, then a 100“ to 120” diagonal is ‘typical’. 100“ would give you the center of theater feel. 120” is a bit closer than the center of the theater. It comes down to personal preference.

There is usually only one wall in your media room that the video screen would work best on. You should try to put the projection surface on a wall that has no direct light shining on it. The more light that hits the display surface, the more washed out the picture on it will look.

If the light in the room cannot be completely controlled, you might want to consider an ambient light rejecting screen.

Our experts suggest the bottom of the screen be between 2 to 3 feet off of the floor. This allows you to have the optimal viewing height.

Of course, this depends on the size of your screen and the wall you’re placing it on.

If you have multiple rows of theater seating in your cinema room, you may need to go a bit higher to keep clean lines of sight for people sitting behind the first row.

Also make sure to take into account anything that will sit underneath the display, like a center speaker or an entertainment center.

Viewing Angles

One thing you need to take into account when buying a projector screen are the viewing angles. The viewing angle is the angle the screen traverses in the viewer’s front vision from the far left of the screen to the far right.

It’s recommended that you have a viewing angle between 30 to 40 degrees for optimal viewing. At wider angles the image will appear dimmer and washed out because the light reflecting of the screen isn’t reflecting as much at that angle.

Some projection screens have wider viewing angles than others. So if you’re planning to use your display in a wider room, you need to make sure it has a wider viewing angle.

Sightlines

If you have more than one row in your home movie theater, the rows behind the first could be blocked by heads of the viewers in the first. You can use risers or horizontally stager the seating layouts. The other option you have is to place the screen higher on the wall.

What is the best screen brand?

There are a number of projector screen manufactures but deciding which is the best projector screen brand is somewhat subjective. Some brands are better at certain features than others.

If you want to buy the best projection screen there are a few attributes you should look for.

Where is the screen made?

You want to look for a brand that manufacturers in the United States. When you buy a made in the USA projector screen, you can be more confident that you’ll be getting a higher quality screen built with better quality materials and components so they’re likely to last longer.

Another advantage is that they’re more likely to arrive without damage because they don’t have to come from overseas. This is the reason American screen manufacturers are able to offer more substantial warranties.

Projector Screen Warranties

Speaking of warranties for projector screens, you want to make sure the manufacturer offers at least a 5-10 year warranty.

Motorized movie screens should especially have a 5-10 year warranty as they contain moving parts that have a higher chance of breaking than a fixed frame that doesn’t go up and down.

How is their customer service?

Any time you buy an expensive item you want to know that customer service will be there to help you should any issues arise. The best movie screen manufacturers provide excellent customer service.

You can check out company reviews to get an idea of their customer service.

Projector Screen Pricing

The price of projector screens is a good indicator of which one is the best. A brand that sells higher priced screens is going to offer a better product.

It’s important to remember though that what you’re really looking for is the value of your projector screen. For many people getting the most expensive projector screen isn’t necessarily the best option for them.
