And since projectors (using zoom) allow you so much variation in image sizes, I'm sometimes amazed more people don't go even further to a Variable Image Size system. See links below my name.

Chris is this screen free of artifacs,shimmering,noise in the image? And what is the lead time once the screen is ordered?

Any pictures of how the curved frames mounting brackets will work. I'm in the process of building a false wall which my screen will be attached to and want to make sure I won't have any issues when I order my screen in a couple weeks. (I've seen the fixed frame instructions, but doesn't talk about the curved options - http://seymourav.com/articles/Center...structions.pdf, or maybe its the same french-cleat option)

I have a 150" curved 2.35 Seymour...the mounting cleat is a just a curved french cleat. Center cleat is about 24-30 inches...then there are 2 L brackets that attached at the bottom outside edges of the frame to keep screen locked in place. Super easy to install...sorry for no pics.

So is the wall you mounted the frame to curved? Or does the back of french cleat go against a flat wall, but the actual cleat comes out of the wall and is curved to align with the screen frame? If you happen to have a picture maybe that would help me...

No, the XD is still all over the site. The attenuation averages -1.4dB. Additional information is on the screens page: http://www.seymourav.com/screens.asp

You can do either. If you curve your wall or mounting surface to a 40' radius, then you can simply mount it to that by flexing the hanging brackets (smaller ones are recommended and they can be trimmed). If you mount it on a flat wall, it comes with a welded steel wall adapter bracket for the top center ~50" and two, adjustable L-brackets for the bottom corners.

Cheers,
Chris

The wall I mounted to is flat. The cleat is curved, the steel mounting strip mounts to a flat or curved wall. You don't need to do any special prep to your wall for a curved screen. I was planning for a normal "flat" screen during my build and decided to go with curved at the last minute.

No picture...I don't want to take the screen down. Trust me, you'll be fine.

I apologise in advance if this isn't the right place to post these questions. Here goes:
  1. What's the price difference between SeymourAV screens and the Seymour Screen Excellence products?
  2. I see that one can order SeymourAV screens from their website. If I wanted a Seymour Screen Excellence screen, how do I order one?
  3. The Seymour Screen Excellence Absolute range looks excellent. Can someone please point me in the direction of pricing?

Thanks!

Yes, the earlier version was just called "Center Stage". The material had a courser weave and I believe less gain.
Center Stage XD is the updated fabric, though it has been around for several years itself (5 or 6??)
I would pass on the used screen.

I don't think there would be anything wrong with a used screen if the price is right and it's in good shape. What size is it?

great shape, 127" - but the difference in material worries me as per the previous poster. I've confirmed that it is in fact the older Centerstage and not the XD

Is that 127" wide? Is it a Seymour frame or DIY? I would wait for Chris to chime in about pros and cons of the older material which will probably be largely dependent on your equipment and setup.

My mistake - it's 121.5" wide (about 132" diag.)

Bang out a wooden frame, buy 3 or 4 yards of Center Stage XD fabric and some black velvet.
A top notch custom sized screen likely cheaper than the used one you are looking at.
Done deal.

Does it need black AT material to be behind it to prevent light from going through to the wall (screen will be hanging about 2 feet in front of wall)

Unless the wall and everything else behind the screen is a dark color, I would say yes.
