Can I adjust the screen to stop automatically where I want, if is so how do I do it?
Yes, the down stop of the screen can be adjusted so that the top black border measures between 0 to 50cm. On the underside of the screen to the left hand side is a rubber bung, removing this will allow access to a white hex key socket. Turn the hex key clockwise approx ten turns and bring the screen down, the screen will stop in a higher position. Further clockwise turns will stop screen in higher up, anticlockwise turns will do the opposite. For an instruction diagram click here or to watch a video click here
Are your screens suitable for 3D?
Yes, they have been tested with a large range of 3D projectors with excellent results. JVC use our screens to demonstrate their new 3D projectors at industry shows
What size of screen should I go for?
The size of screen is determined by the distance you are sitting from it but you should also make sure your projector will fill the screen from where you are able to mount it.
As a rule of thumb choose a screen just under half the width of the sitting distance.
If you are sitting around 12-14ft away use a 7ft screen.
Do I need grey screen material?
Grey material is designed to increase the contrast of home cinema projectors when the average contrast was around 2000:1, the down side was that the grey material altered the colour balance. Home cinema projectors now have a much higher contrast ratio so grey screens have become less popular with people favouring better colour reproduction on a matte white material
What is the gain?
The gain is the reflectivity of the screen, meaning how much light the screen reflects from the projector back at the audience. High gain screens typically 1.3 and above make the picture much brighter but reduce the contrast and viewing angle. These screens are mostly used in conference centres for presenting to large audiences.
Cinema screens have a low gain of 1-1.2, this keeps contrast levels. Our screens have a gain of 1.1.
Can I ceiling mount the screen?
The screens can be easily wall or ceiling mounted. When ceiling mounting the screen both brackets must be fixed to the ceiling joists. When wall mounting brackets must fix to solid brick or stud work.
If I hide the screen with a pelmet will the infra-red still work?
The electric screens come with an external IR eye that plugs into the side of the case.
As long as this eye is visible the screen will work via the remote.
Can the screens be recessed into the ceiling?
Two main things are required to do this: The ceiling joists have to run parallel to the screen and the screen must be accessible from the floor above. The brackets can mount to the joists so that the base of the screen is just above the surface of the plasterboard. A long thing slot is cut into the plasterboard to allow the material and bar to come though the ceiling. The screen can only be fitted and removed from the room above and triggered by the external IR or 12volt trigger.
