Cheap 4K screen
Not sure if you are still interested, I am currently going down the DIY path myself. There is only a small handfull of screen suppliers in OZ, and they all want the $$$$$.
Well I received a sample of some AT material, once is claimed as HD, the other is sold as 4K. the noticable difference between the 2 is thr hole size and weave tightness. the 4K does look about 1/5th smaller in the wevae pattern.
We had just finished building and had our blinds installed a few weeks ago, they are called sheerview so the give privacy but let light through. we chose an openess of 5%. They are made from 30% polyester,70% PVC. Something caught my eye, it looked identical to the 4K material sent to me (the weave was the same size as was the holes between the weave) the colour was extremely close too. Started to get a little excited at the possibility. I went back to the store and requested a sample of 3%, 5%, and 10% in white.
I will be wrapoing the samples around my speakers this weekend and try and test by ear if the sound is different from each.
In terms of picture, i have 2 rows, 12ft and 15ft at 12ft i could not tell the difference in picture quality between the roller blind at 5% and the 4K material.
Here is the kicker, the material comes on a 3M wide roll at $45 per meter.
Im happy to post some pics if you guys are interested?
