draper has launched a new product under the label TecVision. It should be the most accomplished screen of draper (better than the MS1000V/react 2.1).

TecVision Family
TecVision surfaces offer unparalleled performance and features that set them apart from the competition.
TecVision surfaces offer wider viewing cones for better off axis viewing
TecVision surfaces feature lower and more consistent gloss levels for less distortion in the picture
TecVision surfaces feature carefully formulated light absorbing dark backing which prevents picture degradation from light behind the screen
TecVision surfaces offer huge savings when compared to the costs of purchasing a projector with increased brightness

MS1000X Grey
MS1000X Grey performs very well in situations where moderate to high ambient light is present.

On avforum, someone reported this:
Hi All,

Thought I start a thread about my recent experience with a new product from Draper.
Have to say I don't actually own a projector or screen, so knowledge regarding both is still quite little.

I went to an open event at Ideal-Av, which was for the new screen from Draper, also to show off the new range of Epson's projectors.

I never realised that the screen in Allan's light room was a dark grey as it always had an image on it, but always thought the projector what ever he used at the time looked very good.

But after the open day my eyes were opened (no pun intended) to what a difference this new screen makes.

Firstly the dark room, we tried the white version of the new screen, compared to the current screen that’s in Allan's dark room.

I could believe how clear and defined the image was, it seemed to me like the image was being processed when actually it wasn't. Best way to describe what i was seeing is that the image looked like it had been calibrated...:smashin:
Also I went and looked at the image at a extreme angle, the quality of the image was still there..wink.gif

Then we had various 3D demo's which in my view, is WHEN screen showed what it can REALLY DO; the quality of the 3D image IMHO was improved vastly.

The colours prime example was Avatar seemed to be more correct and vivid; also there was an increased sense of depth to the image.

The white screen would be perfect for a genuine dark cinema room, but for customers who don't have that option, the grey finish would be a great solution, we tried a sample of this in framed screen which was used in the dark room and light rooms.

Again I would say it was better in the dark room compared what Allan has in there already (not sure what the make it is), also in the light room; to me it was a better then the Draper React2 which Allan has had for a while now?

So my overall impressions were that this new product has just raised the bar for Draper, as I thought the React2 was great, but this new TecVision MS1000 is better.

Whether you have a dark room or a average light room, there's now a screen that can cater for both, also there is an acoustic transparent versions to come too, even though we got to see a TEASER sample of the grey version, it was just a small sample, not a decent sized framed sample which we used earlier.

I was left so impressed that’s it sown a seed about a possible projector and screen in the future.
So anyone who's looking for a new quality screen, whether for a dark, light or whatever type of room I would put the TecVision MS1000 on top of your list.

Thanks Phil.

Looks very promising. Especially because I've seen the Draper React 2.1 (MS1000V) material, and it was already very good, and this one should be even better!

HAS anyone seen it?

I was looking at it, but ultimately went with the xs850e (amazing screen) because that's what they recommended.

What they are talking about is that the MS1000X has very good ambient light rejection, so in a room that's not totally dark, it might work better with a dim projector than a white screen would.
