Choosing the Right Projector Screen

Ambient light, room size, and projector specifications, determine the type of projector screen that will work best for your needs. You can choose from a front projection screen – wall mounted or portable – to a fancy rear projection screen that manual or electric versions. If you are in a classroom, mounting the projector screen over the front whiteboard, would work best. A home theater system would also require mounting, however business projector systems are used for presentations, etc., that require more portability.

Tensioned or Non-tensioned Manual Projector Screens

These are common setups because they are the most inexpensive alternative. Manual projector screens pull down like a window shade when needed and flip back up between uses. Manufacturers have created tensioned models to enhance picture quality and solve the issue of bends and folds in non-tensioned screens. There is a manual screen case, Controlled Screen Return, that stops the projector screen from rolling back too quickly.

Types of Projector Screen Fabric

Let’s define the two most important terms that screen fabric directly effects.


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.
