This is not an uncommon problem. Different materials will age differently. It seems that heat is giving this particular material the fits. The srinkage is small,and is probably easily removable, it would jsut reqire tension along the two outside edges. It is tenssioned at the top and bottom, so thus, the pulling in at the middle. Not unusual, with most materials out there. So, I would not specifically point out this situation.
The Arizona heat probably played a BIG part in the problem encountered in the first screen mentioned. Heat and excessively low humidity. Heck, your projector would deform under the same conditions. I'll be lucky if anything I produce behaves as well under such adverse conditions. The da-lite screen in question should have recieved hazard pay for that job.
