That is not the case.. with JVC glasses and JVC projector at least.

JVC's glasses are horizontally polarized, so in order to get the brightest 3D image from the new JVC projectors, one needs a screen that DOES RETAIN polarization and use JVC glasses.

If you are using cheaper 3rd party glasses, which nearly all are vertically polarized, then yes.. you would need a screen that DOES NOT retain polarization.

I should have imagined that was true. I was thinking he thought it was a passive 3D system.

Found a good chart for Da-Lite screens.


1222 is a bit out of the price hoped for, but a good screen is worth it. It will outlive many projectors.
