Projector Screen Discussion Thread

I think there are enough people who are beginning to own screens, so it's useful to have a chat on the options.

Projectors (PJ) have been divided into a few camps
- traditional ones which require a longer throw, so you usually site it at the back
- ultra short throw ones which sit on a console at the front

The light source can be a bulb, LED or lasers

The video chip can be LCD, DLP, each with it's own pros and cons.

As for the screens, you won't want to be using the old style traditional ones with a UST PJ.

You will need a ALR Light rejection type such as this:

Not cheap and you should know it before committing to a UST PJ.

Screens can be mobile, retractable, or fixed. Avoid those foldable unless you like a crease in the middle of your viewing area.

Actually I read that it’s better to get the projector first and then test it out on the screen.
Some screens are better than rest.
They are people who buy the PJ and screen together and later found the screen is not good enough.

SG market really so small cannot find much ALR Brands.....
Only got the XY screen.

Also there are different light rejecting specs.
Some ALR reject more light, some lesser.

It's a weight not size issue. So check the weight bearing capacity of your wall, and then the specs on the weight of the screen.

U can go XY screen website to check out the item weight.
http://www.xy-screen.com/xy_en/produ....asp#techspecs


example of my 100” Weight
净重is the screen only.
毛重 is the box containing all the stuff.
Spoiler!


Screws to mount the screen hanger is estimated 5cm Long. Total used 4 screws, 2 screws on each side of the hanger.
Spoiler!

So u need to know the thickness of your dry wall & if there’s any concrete wall behind it.
I’ve seen on AV forums that AMDKs mount their screen on the drywall.
100” screen at 11kg is not that heavy.

Normally Drywall standard thickness is 1/2 inch. That’s plaster wall.
Yours is partition? Maybe it’s plywood.
I think you can ask if the screen seller if they will provide assembly & installation of the screen.
Normally they will charge for the service & I think they have lots of experience on mounting on different surfaces.

100” is just nice.
My viewing distance is about 3m.
