There are diverse brands, with diverse materials and framing; fixed screen that are mounted on wall, portable screens, motorized screens, pull-down screens, screens that deflect ambient light. In this article, Almiria ltd walks through one of the most asked questions so that you can choose the best.

The basic trick is to match the screen with: the projector, what you watch and the room. There lighting of the room should be dark enough for casual viewing such as HDTV and sports. If you have a brighter room and are planning to watch a mix of general HDTV and moves, then you will need a screen that helps you out.

If your room looks more of a theatre with full lighting control, then you don’t need to worry about the ambient light. The exception is based on theatre lighting such as low light sconces. It is therefore imperative to go with a standard gain white screen from 1-1.4 for widest viewing areas.

Budget

Budget is an important aspect when choosing for the right screen. Some screens cost even more but the more the cost the greater the ambient light handling. If you are considering the quality of the picture, plan to get a projection screen that goes hand in hand with your projector. You will enjoy a better looking picture than when you project it on the wall. The best size of the screen is dependent on personal preference and viewing distance. We recommend for a viewing distance of 1-1/2 times the screen diagonal for a HD projector. We have two basic projection screens; retractable and fixed frame. Retractable can be either manual or motorized and these are the most common in the Kenyan market.

Basic factors to consider before choosing a room and a projector

Understanding about them can help you match your room and projector.    

What size screen should you get?

For a projection screen, space is the main lighting factor. The size of the screen determines how far away your are and you should sit at an optimum viewing point. The general thumb rule for a 1080p HD projector distance is one and a half times the screen diagonal. Another dependable approach is to multiply the viewing height of the screen by 3.

Motorized or Manual?

Our motorized and Manual screen sizes ranges from 60*60 to 120*120. Motorized screens are electric. Motorized screens are most elegant since they are useful when you need them.

Installing a motorized screen is a little involved fir a fixed frame because power is needed. It also features a trigger input in that the screen will lower automatically when you turn on the projector; that requires low voltage connection between the screen and the projector.
