Buy projectors screens from your AV expert online
To achieve the best image quality, it is advisable to project onto a screen. Projecting onto a wall does not provide the same image quality due to the physical properties of a screen.
A projector screen is made of a special material with a fine structure.
It bundles the projected light and reflects without degrading the quality. A wall does not have a suitable structure and the light is not reflected as well and may result in loss of quality.
Also as walls are not always completely white, the white gradiations of the projected image may be distorted towards the wall colour. White snow may become yellow, for instance. We therefore always recommend a projector screen.
Before purchasing a screen, you need to pay attention to the gain factor. It determines the quality of the projected image.
The gain factor (luminance factor) determines the reflection of the screen.
Most projector screens have a gain factor between 1.0 and 1.5 and are suitable for both business and home cinema. Screens with a higher gain factor, project images much brighter but with a much smaller viewing angle.
If you require a bright projector (due to high ambient light), a screen with a higher gain factor may be useful. However, the issue is the viewing angle and viewers who are not sitting near the centre of the screen, will only see a heavily contrasted poor image.
A rear projection screen has a high gain factor (above 2.0) because the projector has to illuminate the image through the projection fabric. This requires a higher light output and a higher gain factor.
Screen format: 1:1 | 4:3 | 16:9 …
The screen format usually depends on the output format of the projector.
The 16:9 format is best suited for projectors with a Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080), HD ready (1280 x 720) and 4K (3840 x 2160). The viewing area of the screen is completely filled with the projected image.
Screens with an aspect ratio of 16:10 are suitable for projectors with a WXGA resolution (1280 x 800) and WUXGA (1920 x 1200). Also available are screen formats of 1:1 and 4:3. The projection image can be adapted to the room height on the screen. The 1:1 format is useful when used with overhead projectors.
Installation screens are designed for a fixed installation. They can be wall or ceiling mounted and are suitable for business or home cinema users.
The correct screen type can be determined by the available space and the characteristics of your room. If there is no space for wall mounting, it may be possible to ceiling mount the screen.
We also offer a range of projector screens that are both, wall and ceiling mountable.
Do you have a large enough space and the desire to turn it into a real home cinema? Then the fixed frame screen is the ideal solution. The screen fabric is firmly fixed into the frame to ensure total long-term flatness. The black frame enhances the home cinema experience.
Projector screens can be either operated:
|Manually||for instance pull down screens, crank operated screens, etc.|
|Electrically||for instance electric screens, ceiling recessed electric screens, etc.|
Mobile screens: deployable anywhere
Are you travelling a lot to give presentations, lectures, training courses, seminars or workshops at different venues? Then the mobile screen is the right solution for you.
Or are you looking for a projector screen that can be used in different meeting rooms within your organisation's building? Again, a mobile screen is the perfect solution.
Mobile screens (such as tripod screens) can be easily and quickly set up and dismantled.
As a private user you can also enjoy the benefits of mobility: for instance in the garden or in a party tent.
Electric ceiling recessed screens
A ceiling recessed screen is the most elegant installation solution, when the screen is retracted, it is almost invisible.
If a ceiling recessed screen is installed in front of a window when in use, the daylight is not obscured.
There are three types of control: by means of a switch, a trigger or a remote control. A trigger will be connected to the projector. When the projector is switched on, the screen will automatically drop and then retract when the projector is switched off.
We offer custom built screens, and you can determine the fabric size, housing colour and some other properties.
We offer all accessories for our screens: suitable brackets (for instance floor anchor sets, wall spacers) as well as control kits, such as trigger kits and remote controls for additional comfort. For the tripod screen range, we provide soft cases for easy transport.
Screen paint is useful when a screen installation is not possible. The paint contains reflective particles that are not contained in conventional paint.
We provide a range of different colours for different projection types:
The use of screen paint is not a true alternative to using a screen but rather a compromise.
The right screen in 3 steps
1. Where do you wish to use the projector screen?
For mobile use:
Tripod screen, ultra mobile scren, mobile table top screen, mobile folding frame screen
For permanent installation:
Manual pull down screen, electric screen, electric ceiling recessed screen, fixed frame screen
2. How much space do you have?
The position of the projector and screens size, will depend to the projector model you select.
Our projection ditance calculator will calculate the distance and screen size.
3. Can I darken the room?
If the room can be darkened -> Gain factor 1,0 to 1,5
If the room cannot be darkened -> Gain factor > 1,5
