PROJECTION SCREENS FOR BUSINESS
Boardrooms and training facilities are important environments. Projection
screens are among the many necessary considerations when creating a meeting
space that maximizes the potential of today's presentation tools. Often
the selection of a Projection Screen is not given much thought. Selecting
the right Projection Screen is a critically important element in a Video
Display System. It is the final link in the picture deliver process and
the visual focus of the entire room. The quality of many display systems
is sometimes unfortunately compromised owing to improper selection of
cheap and poor quality viewing surfaces. Our Projection Screens help you
to present professionally crafted presentations to portray your organization,
deliver training materials and get valuable attention.
SCREENS FOR HOMES
Considering the high cost of LCD and Plasma TVs today, the smarter consumers
are turning to more affordable LCD/DLP projectors to get very large displays
at home. Projectors come in variety of shapes, sizes, and price levels.
There are pros and cons of going with a projector. Projectors are small,
portable, and easy to move around. Want to host a film festival in your
living room? It's easy with a projector: A good projector can create an
image far larger than the biggest of TVs. As noted, projectors are also
cheaper than big TVs in most cases. On the flip side few projectors have
very good speakers in them, and even if they do, you probably don't want
your sound coming out of two tiny speakers embedded in a projector mounted
to the ceiling. You'll need to run all your A/V through a receiver, and
hook up speakers separately to enjoy a good home theatre experience. Also
Projector bulbs get hot and also burn out after a couple of thousand hours
or so. That's almost a year or two based on typical usage, and replacement
bulbs are costly. Then there's the issue of where you're going to put
this projector. You need a clear line of sight between the projector and
where the image will be. Will you display on a wall, where any imperfection
will mar the image? No way! Buy a good screen to mount on the wall or
ceiling or else get a portable screen which can be set up anywhere in
minutes. If you want an image the size of a mini theatre and a thoroughly
enjoyable cinematic experience at home … The Projector with a Projection
Screen is your best choice!
TYPES OF PROJECTION SCREENS
Front projection screens work on diffusely reflecting the light projected
on to them, whereas back projection screens work by diffusely transmitting
the light through them. Pull-down screens (WARSA) are often used in multipurpose
spaces where permanently installed screen would require too much space.
These consist of a special fabric that is rolled in the screen case when
not used, making them somewhat safer to damage than rigid screens. Motorised
screens are wall mounted or ceiling mounted. Motorised screens are similar
to pull-down screens, but instead of the screen being pulled down manually,
an electric motor raises and lowers the screen. Motorised screens are
usually raised or lowered using either a remote control or wall-mounted
switch. Portable Tripod screens (TARSA) usually use a pull-down screen
on a free stand. These can be used when it is impossible or impractical
to mount the screen to a wall or a ceiling.
Projection screens cost money so the most
common question is "Can't we just use a plain white wall and save
the screen expense?" The answer is simple: Would you consider adulterating
your car fuel with kerosene for a cheaper alternative? If not then why
compromise the projection quality when you can get a better picture by
investing in a good screen. If you have already spent so much on a good
projector, why not a little more to get a good end result?
Projection screens have special viewing
surfaces that enhance their reflective properties. White walls don't.
Using any wall you will get a watchable image. However, compared to the
image you'd get with a screen, highlights will not be as brilliant, contrast
and color saturation will be reduced, and (depending largely on the texture
of the wall) sharpness will be reduced as well. You will end up with an
image that is not as good as your projector is capable of delivering.
Furthermore, one very important but often
ignored benefit of a screen is not actually the screen, but the frame.
A solid black frame around a video image substantially boosts the visual
quality of the image itself. So unless you paint a black rectangle on
your wall, by foregoing the screen you will lose this vital component
in the overall visual experience.
If you are serious about good image quality,
you will always be glad you bought a good Projection Screen.
