Need inputs on conducting a mini screen shoot-out
I'm wanting to do a little experiment. I just got a JVC 6710 in this week and I have a Sharp VX-Z30000. They'll be on an audio tower behind my couch in the living room. The screen I'm really wanting, the Microlite F3, won't be available for another month or two. So, in the mean time...
Right now I already have a Dalite High Contrast High Power in 116" wide 2.35:1. So it would be about 100" in 16:9. I would mask the sides.
Looking into getting a bunch of different screen materials, probably for 100" 16:9 to match the Dalite, and play around to see how they look in different lighting conditions on different projectors. Maybe do a shoot-out.
I'm wanting to get the 1.5 gain silver ALR Silver Ticket material. Also, the Silver Ticket white neutral 1.0 gain material. I'm seeing that it's pretty well liked. Or, I would go with something like Carl's blackout cloth. Carl's also has a 2.0 gain silver material, though it's not meant for ALR duties.
Thinking about building a stand with wood and parts from Home Depot. It wouldn't be pretty (I'm honestly not too concerned with that rn, or maybe ever), but it would be functional. I could mount my Dalite on there and hang the other materials over/behind it.
I would like some thoughts on this. How to do it properly. What other materials are readily available that I should look into getting.
