Article on Projector Screen Terminology: Advice and factors in deciding which projector screen is right for you. Types of Projector Screen FabricLet’s define the two most important terms that screen fabric directly effects. Gain Screen gain is the measure of light reflectivity. A gain of 1.0 is the industry standard; 1.2 is 20% higher reflectivity. Viewing Angle Projector screen viewing angle is a measure of quality picture from the center of the screen to the far right and far left of the projection. Color distorts, and light dims, and a certain point on the angle on the viewing axis. Movie theaters are designed to give everyone the same picture quality no matter where they are seated. Gray or White High contrast gray screens mean that whites are less bright, and blacks are closer to actual black. Grey screens depend on sufficient projector luminosity, but reflect less room light than white screens which make them more effective in rooms with ambient light coming from other sources than the projector. There is an obvious advancement in picture quality from gray screens in rooms that are completely darkened. As gain, or light reflectivity, increases, viewing angle decreases, so understanding the room your projector will be setup in is very important to determine the material your projector screen will be made out of.
