Is the optical coating on the firehawk similar to those used on other retro-reflective screens - which 'virtually' eliminates off axis light and help light to return on its same path?
Just curious, because I'm currently using a DaLite Highpower (retroreflective) screen and I'm interested in seeing the results of a Gray/Fire Hawk. I would be willing to give up brightness if the image didn't have any uneven brightness issues. My highpower doesn't have hot spot issues, but it does get brighter when in the absolute center and it tends to fade as you look toward the corners.
I guess why I'm asking is because I'm looking to avoid the light scatter type screens. I might as well use paint in that case if I wanted the projector light to scatter and be absorbed thru-out the room. Obviously all screens do this for the most part, but the retro-reflective designs definitely seem to help give a more visible gain. Add that to the benefit of a gray material and I think I would be a happy camper.
