Hey all...
just getting a new house and need a screen material that is OK rolled. This is because I am looking at making a motorised screen that will hang from the ceiling.

I looked at the price of the screens and was somewhat supised at the cost of a motorised screen! Even a pull down screen is a bit too costly for my liking.

So, I have the basic idea for the controller and motor - I just need a good material for the screen.

Someone mentioned blackout/blockout fabric - what is this? This was some sort of curtain material IIRC?

Thanks
Heath Young

Try gessoed artist's canvas. You can buy it by the roll. It comes rolled up and if you don't use a too small diameter of a rod (I'd use the tube it comes in) you should be ok. It has the advantage of being pure white (it's meant for paint picture-it has to be pure) and completely uniform. It's a 1.0 gain screen which is perfect for an lcd or dlp projector.
