h00kemh0rns: Thanks for the masking answer. It sounds really promising!
Could you please answer some more questions?
1) "BD flat out kicked the matte white screen's (_|_) in every way. Contrast (deeper blacks), whites, light, dark, didn't matter"
Please watch carefully the SI demo video (http://www.siscreens.com/videos/
). Right before the middle
of the video you can see a (paused) hand projected on a conventional screen. The right wall and the ceiling of the room are visible as
they are lit by the reflection of the screen. Then the conventional screen is lifted up to reveal the BD.
What is really amazing is that the reflection of the screen completely disappears and we are not able to see the wall and ceiling any
more. (ie we are left in a totally black room). On the other hand -and this is bad- it's clearly visible that brightness is lost. Just look
carefully while the screen rolls up and compare the before and after (whites look more than grey).
Please comment on that. Were you able to make this kind of comparison? Did you notice a loss in brightness? The HD100 quite dim on
large screens already on its own (I plan to use the biggest possible) and this would be the most important decision factor for me.
2) From what I understand, this material is completely different to anything we have ever seen. To start with, 20mm thinness is exotic! Did
they mention how it gets shipped if you want to purchase only the material? Can it be rolled? Or is it shipped (due to limitation of the
fabric) in a frame? Also, did they mention if the material would work on a curved frame?
3) As Mikenificent1 asks, did you look for any hot spots? Was the sharpness even?
