Review: Carada Precision Series Projection Screen

February 12, 2007

A few months ago we moved to a new house which brought on several changes in our home theater system. First off, we were once again able to have a subwoofer without worry that our cranky neighbors would complain. The second change the move afforded us was the chance to pair our projector up to […]

Introducing Xscreen

March 28, 2006

Over the last year or so we’ve seen several light rejecting or black screens make their way onto the market and overall the results have been favorable, especially in applications where a totally dark room just isn’t feasible. The latest and possibly most intriguing foray into ambient light friendly screens is the

Another black screen, sort of

August 1, 2005

I say “sort of” because the Mirage from ‘Screen Innovations’ incorporates material from DNP in its construction, DNP you’ll remember was the Danish company that caught quite a bit of attention at InfoComm 2005 with their The Mirage is available in screen sizes ranging from 60”-120” and according to the press release is offered in […]

Sony’s ‘black screen’ technology has a name

January 6, 2005

I think come spring we’ll all be hearing a lot more about “Chromavue” screens, as they have consistently packed more wow factor than all most any other product on display at the recent CEDIA and InfoComm shows in 2004. Although the recent Sony CES press release only mentions them in passing (text below), I think […]

Da-Lite Theater-Lite projection screen

January 3, 2005

If I had found one of these before I bolted my 80” screen down to the wall, I might have went in another direction and saved my wall from some screw holes, but hindsight is 20/20 I guess. Da-lite’s Theater-Lite line of screens is a ‘pop-up’ instead of pull down solution which might be very […]

Sony’s High Contrast Projection Screen

June 22, 2004

I wanted to mention this if only in passing, I saw the Sony “black” screen at Infocomm earlier this month. The odd thing was where it was placed, they had it setup right as you came down the escalator, making your way onto the exhibit floor. As there were oh about a thousand people behind […]

DIY projection screens

May 30, 2004

A good home theater projection screen can easily cost as much as some projectors. I won’t make any assumptions as to whether they’re worth it or not in this article. Rather I want to share some info and links to alternative solutions. Obviously motorized, aspect ratio, masking screens like Stewarts Director’s Choice and Da-Lite’s dual […]

Choosing the right Screen size (Bigger isn’t always better)

May 26, 2004

Calm down, I’m talking about screens. Screen size is an important consideration when designing your home theater. So important in fact I consider it one of the top three mistakes home theater enthusiasts make. Americans like big cars, big houses, and big screens.
