I have heard of them: http://www.jenmarvs.com/

Got this link from Noah here. I've been talking to them, and their screens sound very good. I am getting samples sent to me, probably not big enough to do much with, but maybe held up next to a Da-lite DA-100 sample (that I am also waiting for), will be able to see the quality difference. Have no prices from them yet, but I am hopeful. They cater to higher volume users, but are trying to get into the HT market.

I just started looking about a week ago, and have ruled out Gerriets flexible "Show" material, and probably all flexible materials. They just seem to whimpy, but if I find one with a good 6" picture, I might consider it! Hardto tel much from a 6" picture on a 6" screen... but will post any worthwhile results after I see samples.

I went to their facility about a year and a half ago.

They had a huge screenwall, which looked lousy blown up that big, and a Plus DLP in a RP box with about a 60" wide screen. It was showing HD, and looked great.

It's very black even in full room light. The contrast actually improves subjectively with the lights on, I guess because the iris' close.

But it's a light sponge, though not as bad as the Show material. And expensive; at that time I was quoted something near $3K for an 84" wide screen; I don't remember if that was for 4:3 or !6:9.
