Well I've certainly gotten behind the use of Spandex as an alternative to the varied Mfg AT Screens, and perhaps as a result, several others have recently embraced Spandex as a "Regular Use" Screen surface as well. So I figure it's about time I gave it a whirl myself.
The Spandex will be overlaying an existing Silver Fire v2.5 2.0
painted Drywall surface. The Primer coats were rolled on (...don't do that! ) and some Roller Mark streaking along the Top edge of the Screen was / is apparent during brighter, light colored content. The SF 2.0
surface certainly has "MORE" gain than the White Spandex normally used for a backing so it should work very well in this instance.
Wholly unacceptable, but the proud owner (sorta) cannot allow another complete re-masking and Painting job because of spousal considerations.
So this is gonna be the "Fix".
By my figurin' even if the Silver Millskin Spandex comes slouchin' in at 0.8
gain, under the set distance and screen size parameters I'll still smack the Spandex with 20 fls
runnin' on Normal Lamp, and a easy 16 fls
calibrated (...in Living Room Mode...)
I'm fully expecting more fls, but to err in excess as far as not having satisfactory Foot Lambert is to be all the more happier to be in error.
