SI Black Diamond screen instead of a 4-way masking solution?
I’m considering a 2:1 screen (140” wide X 70” high), to allow me to project both 2.35:1 and 16:9 content, without a 4-way masking solution, and without compromising on the respective screen size for the dual-formats.
The 2.35:1 content will display on a 140” X 59” image within that large Black Diamond screen.
And the 16:9 content will display on a 125” X 70” image within that larger screen.
And no masking system would be required (I'm theorizing here) – because the edge of the Black Diamond screen is, well, black.
Has anyone tried this? Can you say whether the black nature of the Black Diamond screen indeed means no separate masking system would be required?
And that’s assuming Black Diamond will custom make a 2:1 screen at this size (I sent them an email, no reply yet).
