It provides a smooth and reflective surface, which improves image quality and ensures an optimal visual experience. In this guide, we will go over the different types of projector screens and help you choose the best screen for your needs.Manual canvas:
These canvases are easy to install and require no power source. You manually roll the canvas up and down using a spring-loaded mechanism. They are an economical and reliable solution for both home theaters and professional environments.Motor/ electric screen:
Electric screens are powered by a motor and can be rolled up and down with a remote control or wall switch. They provide a more automated and practical solution and fit in well with luxury home theaters or high-end conference rooms.Fixed-frame canvas:
These canvases are stretched over a fixed frame and provide the most stable and even surface. They are ideal for those who want the best image quality and are willing to invest in a more permanent canvas.Mobile / Portable canvas:

When choosing a projector screen, it is important to find the right cloth type that suits your projector. Here is an overview of some common projector and screen cloth types and which combinations work best together:Standard white cloth:
This type of cloth is suitable for most projectors, especially for bright LCD and DLP projectors. The white tablecloth provides neutral and accurate color reproduction and is ideal for general presentations and home theater experiences.Grey fog:
Gray fog is designed to improve the black level and contrast of the image, making them suitable for projectors with lower brightness or contrast ratios. They work well with both LCD and DLP projectors and are especially useful in rooms with ambient light.ALR (Ambient Light Rejecting) cloth:
ALR cloth has been developed to minimize the influence of ambient light on image quality. They are ideal for ultra-short throw (UST) projectors and work well in bright environments, such as living rooms with lots of natural light or conference rooms with lots of windows.CLR (Ceiling Light Rejecting) cloth:
CLR cloth is built to minimize light from above and is ideal for UST projectors. CLR canvas ensures quality and that the light is used correctly, so you have the best image and colors.Acoustic transparent cloth:
This type of cloth allows sound to pass through and is suitable for rooms where the speakers are placed behind the screen. They fit most projectors, but are particularly popular in home theaters where sound and image must be perfectly integrated.When choosing a screen type,
you must consider your projector, the room's lighting conditions and your viewing requirements. Be sure to choose a tablecloth that fits your projector and provides the best image quality in your specific environment.
We all dream of a big picture when we get a projector, but many times you end up buying a screen that is too big for your projector . Here it is important to be aware of what is called Throw Ratio
which tells how and what the lens in the projector can support. In most projectors there is a ZOOM function which makes it all a little easier, and their Throw Ratio
will be called (1.35 - 2.2:1) for example. Those numbers tell you that you must have a canvas in a size that fits within that area. If you are in doubt, ask one of our experts.
We have made an easy little calculation so you are sure that your new screen will fit your projector
• Distance to screen divided by throw ratio = image width on screen.Example:
4 meter distance from lens to screen divided by a throw ratio of 1.5 = 2.66 meter wide image. (This corresponds approximately to a 120" screen 16:9)
• Image width multiplied by throw ratio = distance to canvas.Example:
2.66 meters in image width times 1.5 throw ratio = 4 meters distance to canvas (measured from lens to canvas.)
• Distance to canvas divided by image width = throw ratioExample:
4 meter distance to canvas divided by 2.66 meter image width = 1.5 throw ratioA really good tool
that many people use can be found at Projector Central.
