Stewart is a little bit smoother. Not talking a huge difference here.

Hi all,


I am new to the forum but certainly would appreciate help with your input as I build my home theater. I have decided on an Epson 5030 projector and considering a slate Screen Innovation screen, 110". Although it will primarily be a movie theater room with light control, I would also like to use for watching football games with some lights on as well. Does anyone have experience with this screen or other suggestions? Also, if you have your choice of AT (not this screen) or not, what would you choose?

I have the SI Pure Gray in a light controlled room. I can't recommend it enough. It is insanely good! IMO with a light controlled room you don't need to worry about the slate or black diamond features.

In a light controlled room, I generally would go with a white screen. Gray will help with black levels, but would need to size screen and projector to work with the room. Give us a call and we can discuss what would work well for you and provide pricing.

I received a few PMs for the DIY LEDs. Here's what I did.

I bought the HitLights IP-65 kit from Newegg:
*link blocked*

and the 5M extension:
*link blocked*

The kit includes the AC transformer, IR receiver, and remote.

It's important to buy the outdoor, IP-65s because their backing is stronger and they're a bit wider, so the press fit into the zero edge's channel. I learned the hard way by starting with the indoor.

I started the strip under the SI logo at the bottom of the screen. The transformer will hide in the rails behind the screen. I mounted the IR receiver just above the SI logo. The receiver is not visible, and it likely works for me because my walls are white. Black walls may need to hang it a bit lower.

Simply press fit the strip all the way around. Total cost: About $60.

(The pictures show my strip started on the left side of the screen.. this is when I transitioned from the indoor to outdoor strips. Half were indoor, half outdoor. The pictures show the outdoor strips only. The LEDs are also on their dimmest setting)

** I don't have enough posts, so I cannot post links. Awesome.**

Thanks..They turned out exactly as I wanted them too. But now I have another idea for a cabinet design so I have the speakers up for sale. This hobby never ends.

In 16:9 120" diagonal is the largest. They can go to 150" diagonal 2.35.

This is what happens when you get busy and finish your reply several hours later. Blake's reply was not there when I started this post this morning.

Thanks for the reply.

Knowing the size of my room which is quite deep (26 ft.). and the seating distance stars from 16 ft., i think 120" Bd would be kinda small!

My new dedicated HT (with controlled lighting and no windows), its walls and carpet will not be that dark (but absolutely not white, maybe cream or light grey) as i hate dark colors, and i know BD can work pretty well in such environment because i have seen it in my friend's house.

In addition, i intend to watch live NFL with friends with some light on.

So, since i cannot get BD above 120", will Slate 135" do the job in such environment? and how to add the cool effect of LED to the Slate 135" screen?

This has nothing to do with the lighting kit. I noticed the bottom of your screen is a bit off the wall. That usually means your wall brackets are to tight or the wall is not even and is pushing the screen off the wall. You might think of spacing the bracket off the wall 3 or 4 washers deep to help.

Check out our screen wizard and free light meter app. Run the screen wizard and if you have any questions you can call me at the factory 512 832 6939. http://www.screeninnovations.com/tools/screen-wizard/ ...The wizard will want to know the lumens of the projector you are going with and the Foot Candle (FC) reading for the ambient light in the room.

The size of the room is not really as important as to the seating distance from the screen. You rm may be 26' deep but if you only sit 16ft from the screen then a 120" is what SMPTE would recommend.

Go buy some concrete screws that are 1.25" to 1.5" long. Also get the drill bit that goes with these. Lowes, Home Depot and places like that sell these. You will need a hammer drill to install.
