Hmmm, that's odd. Did they change their name? My URL bar says aflex5d as well as the website itself, but my tab itself has Airflex5D on it, and I swear that's what it used to be on their website as well.

Oh well, maybe someone else had the name first and made them change it. When I Google Airflex I get quite a few different results.

Yep, dnp recommends a 3800 lumen projector for a 120" 16:9 08-85 screen with 200 lux on the screen/400 lux in the room.

You can't even tell there's a drop off...at least I can't. Looks just as bright from the kitchen sink as it does from the middle seats. Granted this means it doesn't reject light as well from the sides, but I would rather have wide viewing angles since I watch from my back porch, the kitchen, and the family room. The 23-23 material is the best material I have seen for enhancing contrast and brightness (in ambient light) all while having excellent viewing angles.

Also, it's very transparent in total darkness as well. I thought the gain would make it stand out, but it really doesn't. This would probably translate different in a total batcave. The room, projector, and screen all play a role. I am willing to bet when we all watch the same movie in our theater rooms, the picture looks a little different.

Darin's knowledge of light and physics opened my eyes up so much to be able to "kinda" see the big picture...pun intended. So KUDOS to Darin for that! I have a lot more to learn, but I do know that picture quality is totally subjective. Even if our rooms were setup exactly the same, our eyes and personal preferences are all different.
23-23 stands for 2.3 gain with a 23 degree viewing angle and 08-85 stands for 0.8 gain and 85 degree viewing angle so I think you have it wrong.

I have told you this before, don see yourself blind on these recommendations. I have the Sony HW55 in a livingroom with a 100" 08-85 and it is no problem watching sports with the light on, if I watch TV shows with a more darker APL I turn off the lights in front of the room or completely. It works perfect and the HW55 is about 1200 lumens calibrated. In my batcave I can get 25+fl on a 128" 2.35:1 screen with an A-lens and new lamp on my VW1100 and it is "only" about 1800+ - lumens with a new lamp and calibrated.

I have 100% lightcontrol and can not see anything in the room with the lights turned of, and to my big surprice the dnp Supernova looked more dynamic than a 1.0 gain matte screen, and that was the reason I spendt almost 8000$ on the screen. It is cheaper in the USA I think, but the snp Supernova is very expensive here in Norway.

Change screen like I did.
Not that I think that I have to much in high, but then it's closer to my jvc, and in my comfort sone with both

Here's some info from dnp's website for you: http://www.dnp-screens.com/DNP08/Pro...equipment.aspx
The Epic & Epic CS look like the way to go for screen sizes over 120", if you don't want seams. However, the Infinity does have seams, and looks to be geared towards large-scale events for easy setup/tear-down.
OK, get it; thanks. With my present Dalite HP (which is retro-refective) I have the projector (Sony 1100) mounted just above and behind my head to take advantage of its properties. With the angular reflectivity of the DNP, I wonder how it would work in this location: its 'mirror' character should still focus the reflection off the screen straight back to ones eyes, right? But would it tend to hot spot with the pj located in this location?
he DNP website says that the Infinity panels show no visible seems between them, but I would need to see this to verify. I have a custom size 144x72 (i.e., 2.0 AR), so the Infinity frame would be ideal if it does indeed show no seams.

PS: Oops! I just saw one fact of the DNP that kills it for me: the 23-23 material recommends a minimum throw ratio of 1.8, while for my room I need a throw ratio of no more that 1.4. So the DNP is a no-go for me.

You're taking all of this too personally. I don't claim to know everything. I only know what I've seen with my two eyes. I just happened to like my uncalibrated JVC more than the calibrated 1100ES I got to watch over the weekend.

Sent a answer to this but did not get up, i can't find it hehe.
So here maybe again.

No I do not think I take it to personal at all, but enough with that.
Me and also Andreas get questions every time we say something that we see as a fact about a JVC side by side with a VW 1100 or other vw1100 or jvc x500 or jvc x700. And I see it clary in my cinema and also Andreas cinema. So I do not understand why you and other that have only had a peak at the vw1100 can say what they say.
okey you had more than a small look.but why can we see things so completely different.
Why? It could be the material used or want that one PJ to be better.
You are welcome to Norway to my cinema and I get shocked if you still then say the same.

Thanks, I know the technical details...read plenty about those. I think in "my" situation it has more to do with screen gain, projector brightness and room reflectance.

1000 lumens (at best) isn't enough to light up the 08-85 material so it was really easy to see the brightness roll-off when moving off angle (it went from fairly dim in the sweet spot to almost black 60 degrees off-angle). But 1000 lumens or less is plenty to light up the 23-23 (now HG23) material so that makes it more difficult to discern the brightness roll-off when moving off angle. At least that's all that I could think of that makes sense to me. That extra brightness from the screen gain also helps offset the room reflectance.

Trust me, I really wanted to be able to get a 120" 08-85, but it was just too dim in the sweet spot and not watchable at all off-angle, whereas the HG23 was nice and bright anywhere in the room.

Here's some really good details on the screen materials:

I'm not doubting this, but I have a 20" larger screen and 200 less lumens with a brand new bulb and lights on in the room the majority of the time. 08-85 would not be good for my current setup.

I'm sure 1800+ lumens is fine in your bat cave on your 128" 08-85 screen. dnp recommends 3800 lumens on a 120" screen (8" smaller than yours) in a brightly lit room that has 200 lux of ambient light hitting the screen and 400 lux of ambient light in the room. In a bat cave, you would be able to cut their lumen recommendation in half or more (which would equate to </=1900 lumens).

Take that 128" screen out to the living room and see how well it performs with your HW55, then you'll see my point.

Yeah, they recommend a pretty long throw which negates hot spotting. I needed to mount my projector at 15'9" to be at 1.8 x screen width (120" diag = ~105" wide x 1.8 = 189/12=15.75), but that wasn't possible for me since my room is only 16'6" long and I wanted to do ceiling mount so I didn't get blinded walking back and forth in front of the projector. My pj is mounted at 13'6", so I can see a hotspot on certain scenes, but it's rare and doesn't bother me. Plus I get maximum brightness having the projector mounted closer which is good for having it in the living room.

Also, the projector can be mounted anywhere from 5% above the top edge of the screen to 5% below the bottom edge of the screen, and anywhere in between. The closer you mount the projector to the screen, the more towards the middle of the screen you will want the lens of the projector to be so the screen doesn't absorb light from the projector (if the light from the projector comes in at too steep of an angle it will be treated as ambient light and rejected instead of reflected back towards the viewers).

What you say here I find strange as the 08-85 sould have a much better viewing angle than the 23-23, and In my family room (just tested it) I can put my head at the screen wall (85-90 degrees) and not see any drop in brightness on the 08-85. This is with the lights on and a 200 hour old lamp on the HW55 and the lamp in high.

And I have tested the HW55 on the 128" screen and it is no problem...

Your point?
You asked me I answered!
Like I told you in my setup, I like to use it in low. Many of my friends like it in high lamp mode. I can gladly live with only high mode on my PJ but I can pick low and I like that more.

Well, color me intrigued. Maybe the sample I had was messed up, or the sample was just too small to make a valid observation.

Why do you have to live so damn far away, LOL!? I would love to check out your setups just so I could see what you are seeing for myself. And not that I don't believe you, I just want to see an 120"+ 08-85 VW1000/1100 combo in person so I can convince my wife to get me that for Christmas.

Maybe one day when me and my wife are on vacation I can be like, "Hey babe, don't be mad but we're about to make a quick detour by Andreas house". That would go over about as well as a fart in Church.

But anyways, the most important thing is that we're both happy with what we have. Cheers.

You seriously wouldn't try to make it look good on the 1.3 gain screen and would wait for different screen?

Do you need to know my point before you can decide what a reasonable answer would be?

It isn't so important when you seem so set on not giving a realistic answer.

Why do you have to live so damn far away, LOL!? I would love to check out your setups just so I could see what you are seeing for myself. And not that I don't believe you, I just want to see an 120"+ 08-85 VW1000/1100 combo in person so I can convince my wife to get me that for Christmas.

Maybe one day when me and my wife are on vacation I can be like, "Hey babe, don't be mad but we're about to make a quick detour by Andreas house". That would go over about as well as a fart in Church.

But anyways, the most important thing is that we're both happy with what we have. Cheers.
Yes, that is the most important thing!

What might have happened is that it was marked wrong, if I remember correctly they mark their samples with top and maby this was put on the side and you got to see the light rejection instead of the excellent viewing angle of the 08-85.

And if you are coming to Norway one day you are very welcome!

That could be as well. I swear I tried it both ways, but I can't recall.

Man, last time I was in Europe was Poland with one of my friends from Pittsburgh back in 2004. Stayed for 2-weeks for a couple weddings. Did some partying in Warsaw and puked my guts out (more than once) trying to hang with all those crazy guys. I thought my American liver was tuned well enough for all that Vodka, boy was I wrong, LOL! It was fun though, lots of good people there, very chill culture. Go to the meat market and get fresh Kielbasa, then hit the bakery for some freshly baked bread, grab a couple cases of Tyskie and Lech beer then build a fire and eat, drink, play guitar, sing, and joke all night. Loved it there, simple life.

I'll definitely let you know if I'm going to be coming over that way. I need a good vacation.
