Hey all!

We are in the market for an acoustically transparent screen.

What are your guys thoughts on a good screen? Budget can go up to $3k for screen.

I have come to the conclusion that weave is better than perforated correct?

I called some companies up and was quoted a draper screen.
Draper Onyx Permanent Wall Screen, 65” x 116” Viewing Area w/ Clearsound Whitewave Acoustically Transparent Surface

Does anyone have any experience with this material or suggest something different?

One of the pro calibrators the frequents the forum did some testing on a bunch of screen materials a while back. First section is non AT second section (pate 6) is AT but the heading was copied and pasted without changing it to say AT

I think I am going to end up getting Lunette AcousticPro 4K Elite Screen. 16:9

Can anyone tell me, on a curved screen. Do you need an anamorphic lens?

The projector I am getting is the DLAX55 JVC which says it has a pincushion adjustment for curved lens?
But does that still mean I need an anamorphic lens?

You use a curved screen to compensate for an A-lens. Not the other way around. If you are only going to do 16:9, there is no reason to do a curved screen let alone an anamorphic lens.

Is it solipsistic in here, or is it just me?

We wouldn't be buying the curved screen to "fix" anything.
We would be buying it to have that wow factor of a curved screen.

The only thing I was curious about was the focus issues?

So a curved 16:9, how would you focus the center different from ends?

You do not really need a curved screen since you are not using a lens. Also, You will not be using the pincushion adjustment. A curved screen with no lens will give you barrel distortion, not pincushion, so the adjustment would not help. Even if you were using an A-lens, I still would not recommend using the pincushion adjustment. If you would like to talk screens, give us a call.

The OP wasn't talking about you using a curve screen to fix anything. A curve screen is used with an A-Lens or you will degrade your image. Also, I don't think you can even buy a 16:9 curve screen. A curve screen is for cinemascope screens, therefore an A-Lens is needed.

If you want wow factor, go with a cinemascope screen. Then you can use a curved screen and an a lens. That's wow.
