A screen or projection screen is a white reflective surface that diffuses the light of the projector back to the viewer. The surface could be, for example, a white cloth (painted or spray-painted) or a wall in a room.
However, a better image reproduction is achieved with special projection screens. Previously, the projection screen material was actually linen or cotton. Today, coated glass fibre fabrics are used to avoid deformations and to make the cloths flame-retardant.
The flatter and whiter the surface, the more realistically is the reproduction of the image. The brightness does not drop when viewing the image from the side. For more information on the various types of projection screens, please click the links to our projection screen manufacturers below.
