Questions? 
Front/Rear Projection

Screen surfaces are divided into two categories that are defined by where the projector is mounted in relation to the screen. These two categories are known as front and rear.

*All modern-day projectors are capable of both front and rear projection.

Front Projection

Front projection is the most common kind of projection. This is when the projector is positioned on the audience side of the screen. The screen surface reflects the projected image back to the audience.

All ultra high definition surfaces (4K and above) fall into the front projection category.

All ambient light rejection surfaces fall into this category. Any screen that is positioned against a wall falls into this category.

Both (Dual)

Some screens surfaces are able to be projected onto from both the front and the rear. These surfaces can also be employed so that it can be viewed in two opposing directions simultaneously. Although this type of design is versatile, it does have it's own disadvantages. For one, it doesn't do either front or rear projection as well as a dedicated front or dedicated rear projection surface. Secondly, it is not able to be as bright as a dedicated front or rear screen. However, these two stipulations aside, the dual surface can prove to be a cost effective solution in some cases.

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, it is less commonly found in the home. 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 such as trade-shows and theaters.

Screen Format

A screen's format can be best understood as the specific rectangular shape of the screen.

What type of content do you mostly plan to project?

TV, Movies & Video Games - I recommend a HDTV 16:9 screen.

Mostly Movies - A fellow cinephile I see? I recommend either a 2.35:1 or 2.40:1 Cinemascope screen.

Business Presentations - A widescreen 16:10 is the best choice for you as it allows for more data to be shown.

Education - Might I suggest either the 16:10 or the video 4:3 format?

Format
16:9 (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.

Many movies are formatted in 2.35:1 Widescreen format. 16:9 projector screens are still able to fill the width of the screen with 2.35:1 aspect ratio movies, but there will be letterboxing (unused space) on the top and bottom of the image. If you plan to watch both TV and movies a 16:9 screen is the recommended aspect ratio.

16:9 HDTV Format
16:10 (Wide Format/PC Format)

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.

16:10 Wide Format
2.35:1 (Cinemascope Format)

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.

2.35:1 Cinemascope Format
2.40:1 (Cinemascope Format)

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.

2.40:1 Cinemascope Format
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 Video format still exists in the projector 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.

4:3 Video Format
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.

1:1 Square Format
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 screens 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.

Masking
5:4 (AV Format)

This format is by far the least common of all mentioned formats today, but still exists in some unique situations. 5:4 is very similar to 4:3 but even closer to a square. Older computer monitors were designed in this format.

5:4 AV Format
1.9:1

1.9:1 or 2:1 formats are less common aspect ratios. They can be used as a compromise between the 16:9 ratio and 2.40:1 Cinemascope. These aspect ratios however are being used more often in films. These formats are best used for home theaters.

5:4 AV Format
Screen Type

Screen type is one of the most useful ways to categorize a screen by their function or design.

Where will you be using your projector screen?

Home Theater - A fixed frame screen or an electric retractable screen are both excellent options.

Living Room - A retractable electric screen is a fine choice. However, I would strongly suggest looking into an Ultra Short Throw if you do not already have a projector.

Conference Room - Electric screens are an excellent option to impress potential new clients and help present business data.

At a Convention/Presentation - Portable and folding frame projection screens are your ideal choice as they are easy to set up and breakdown.

Auditorium - Fixed frame and motorized electric screens are ideal choices.

Classroom - For schools we recommend manual screens for smaller classrooms and electric projector screens for larger lecture halls.

Drive-in, Museum, DIY, Outdoor - Projector screen paint is what I would recommend. This paint is speciality formulated to create an optimal projection surface.

Electric

Electric screens are retractable screens that employ a motor to raise and lower the screen surface. This type of design is preferred when having the screen permanently opened and exposed on the wall is not desired. Electric screens can replace a fixed frame screen utilizing the same stretchable surface which is found in a fixed frame screen. This type of electric screen is referred to as "tensioned."

Electric
Fixed Frame

Fixed frame screens are the most popular and widely utilized option of all of the screen types. They stay assembled and ready to go at all times. That said they are best suited for rooms that are dedicated to projection-style viewing, such as home theaters or screening rooms. They're easy to install, easy to use and affordable. Plus they fit comfortably into a wide variety of different settings.

Fixed Frame
Folding Frame

Folding Frame screens are typically used for temporary use in auditoriums, large conference rooms, trade shows and outdoor events. Folding Frame screens are the best portable solutions for these applications as they are strong and durable, often coming with a hard plastic case for transport. They are easily assembled by snapping or screwing multiple aluminum frame pieces to a tensioned screen surface.

Folding Frame
Manual

The most cost effective and easiest to install option is the manual pull-down screen. A spring and roller mechanism inside the case rolls and unrolls the screen when pulled down, much like an ordinary window shade.

Manual
Paint

An alternative to a projector screen, especially if cost is a factor. One gallon of paint can provide a surface area between 92" and 240" of viewing space. The viewing quality won't be the same as a projection screen but will work for basic or outdoor needs.

Paint
Portable

Projector screens that are designed for people who are on the go. Whether in a conference or trade show setting or used in a backyard these screens range from Tripod, table top and floor rising screens.

Portable

Rear

Screens that are designed to be projected on from behind. This is more common in a meeting room environment however most screens come with the option to support a rear surface. This would be used in situations where the projector needs to be out of sight from the audience.

Rear Projectors
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.

Mount Type

Mount type is the way in which your projector screen will be placed or installed.

What will you be using your screen for?

TV, Movies & Video Games - For home cinema, a ceiling, wall mounted or a versatile "wall and ceiling" screen (which are retractable screens mounted to either the wall or beneath the ceiling) are each excellent stylish and functional options.

Presentations - Folding frame and tripod screens are quick to set up and breakdown as well as easy to transport To really impress your audience and potential clients look to a floor rising screen.

Classroom - For classrooms and lecture halls, a retractable ceiling or a "wall and ceiling" screen should be your choice.

Outdoor Events - I am fairly confident you require an outdoor screen.

House of Worship - For churches and other houses of worship I would recommend a ceiling, wall or "wall and ceiling" screen.

Ceiling

Refers to an electric or manual screen who's housing is recessed into the ceiling. There are typically two options available, one with an enclosure door to cover the screen once it's been retracted and one without. Both options maintain a seamless appearance in your home theater or conference room.

Ceiling
Floor

The screen's housing is placed on the floor and the screen will rise up into position. These are not very common and are mostly used in houses of worship or in a conference setting.

Floor
Tripod

A portable screen that is supported by a 3 legged tripod stand. These screens are rolled into their housing which makes them convenient for transporting.

Tripod
Wall Mounted

A wall mounted projector screen is one that is permanently installed on the wall. These are some of the most popular options for dedicated home theater rooms because they are the centerpiece of the cinema space.

Most projection screens mounted on a wall are fixed frame and are hung like a painting; but there are some wall and ceiling mounted screens that are retractable.

Wall Mounted
Wall and Ceiling

Refers to electric or manual screens having the ability to be mounted externally on the wall or ceiling. The screen's brackets allow for both. Wall or ceiling mounted projection screens are the perfect solution when you're looking for a permanent installation.

Wall and Ceiling
Tabletop

Tabletop projector screens are smaller sized screens made to fit on a table or desk. Most commonly used for trade shows or meetings. These versatile, highly portable options make it possible to give a presentation via any tabletop, desk or flat surface.

Tabletop
Outdoor

Refers to a screen that is meant for the outdoors. This can be an electric, manual or folding frame screen and is meant to be able to endure the elements. You want to get a screen that's made for the outside because it's going to be more resistant to fluctuations to weather, humidity and rain.

Outdoor
Folding Frame / Truss

Folding frame screens are typically used for temporary use in auditoriums, large conference rooms, trade shows and outdoor events.

Folding Frame screens are the best portable solutions for these applications as they are strong and durable, often coming with a hard plastic case for transport. They are easily assembled by snapping or screwing multiple aluminum frame pieces to a tensioned screen surface.

Folding Frame
Supported Resolution

Supported resolution determines a screen's compatibility with a projector. Projectors with higher resolutions require a more refined screen surface to avoid distortion.

If you have the budget, you may want to consider getting a screen with a supported resolution above that of your projector. This serves as a way to future-proof your screen so it will still support the next projector you purchase.

1080P

1080p also known as Full HD is a set of HDTV high definition video modes characterized by 1,920 pixels displayed across the screen horizontally and 1080 pixels vertically. The resolution usually assumes a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9. Applications of 1080p include television broadcasts, Blu-ray Discs, smartphones and internet content such as Youtube and Netflix.

1080P
16K

16K textureless and can support the proper number of distortion-free pixels (15360 x 8640). While 16K projectors are not yet available, the size of each individual pixel will be 8 times smaller than that of a 4K projector and 4 times smaller than 8K. If you wish to futureproof your screen you would be wise to select a screen that supports a 16K resolution.

16K
8K

While 4K, 8K and 16K rated surfaces all exhibit a textureless surface from the perspective of tactility, there are essential refinements made to surfaces once passed the threshold of 4k that are difficult to spot just by touching. 8K - textureless and can support the proper number of distortion-free pixels (7680 x 4320). So the size of each individual pixel from an 8K projector is twice as small as that of a 4K projector.

8K
4K

Ultra High Definition or 4K content creates images that are crisper and capable of showing more detail that standard HD. To put this in perspective standard HD is 1920x1080 pixels whereas 4K is about 8 million pixels, which is around 4 times a 1080p image.

4K
Special Features

"Special features" refers 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

Ambient Light Rejecting or ALR is a screen surface that prevents ambient light from washing out a projected image. It achieves 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.

ALR Screen
Acoustically Transparent

An acoustically transparent 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 screens; Woven & Perforated.

Woven screens use a porous surface (much like a bed sheet) which allows sound to pass in and out. There are two disadvantages to this design type: You lose more light 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 4k.

Acoustically Transparent Surface
Tensioned

A tensioned 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.

Tensioned
Whiteboard

Projection whiteboards are a handy tool for the office or classroom environment. This configuration makes it possible to draw and write directly onto the screen. 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.
