I have a customer who has a Runco Q-750D or Q-750i projector I am not sure which model yet. They had it installed through a previous company, but the client cannot get them to come back to finish the job. I am not a Runco dealer, but would like to be able to upgrade their screen to a more modern design.

My client likes the look of the Screen Innovations Zero Edge with the LED light kit. There is some ambient light that comes into the room through a set of 3 glass doors. They have light filtering shades that block probably 80% of the light. To reduce the incoming light even more, the doors are underneath a deck. So, like I said there is minimal ambient light.

My question is this; would going to a Black Diamond 1.4 gain screen be a bad pairing with this projector? I want to enhance his viewing experience as well as the look of the theater, so I am not 100% sure if using the Black Diamond series would enhance or detract from the projectors capabilities.

You should send an email to, he is the one that has compared most of these screens in different viewing conditions. He owns a Black Diamond screen, as well some other screens.

I own a Runco Q-750D and the first question you should ask your customer is what size screen does he want.
The Runco Q-750 line as well as its clones from Vivitek and Digital Projection are recommended for screens no larger than 100" ~ 110" diagonal, although i know of people who have used it with screens as big as 130", and that requires a high(er) gain screen.
I would say that if your customer is satisfied with a screen no larger than 110" diagonal and gain of 1.4 he will get a picture with enough brightness to do justice to the capabilities of the Runco LED projector.
