Acoustically Transparent Screen

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey all!

We are in the market for an acoustically transparent screen.

What are your guys thoughts on a good screen? Budget can go up to $3k for screen.

I have come to the conclusion that weave is better than perforated correct?

I called some companies up and was quoted a draper screen.
Draper Onyx Permanent Wall Screen, 65” x 116” Viewing Area w/ Clearsound Whitewave Acoustically Transparent Surface

Does anyone have any experience with this material or suggest something different?

One of the pro calibrators the frequents the forum did some testing on a bunch of screen materials a while back. First section is non AT second section (pate 6) is AT but the heading was copied and pasted without changing it to say AT

I think I am going to end up getting Lunette AcousticPro 4K Elite Screen. 16:9

Can anyone tell me, on a curved screen. Do you need an anamorphic lens?

The projector I am getting is the DLAX55 JVC which says it has a pincushion adjustment for curved lens?
But does that still mean I need an anamorphic lens?

You use a curved screen to compensate for an A-lens. Not the other way around. If you are only going to do 16:9, there is no reason to do a curved screen let alone an anamorphic lens.

We wouldn't be buying the curved screen to "fix" anything.
We would be buying it to have that wow factor of a curved screen.

The only thing I was curious about was the focus issues?

So a curved 16:9, how would you focus the center different from ends?

You do not really need a curved screen since you are not using a lens. Also, You will not be using the pincushion adjustment. A curved screen with no lens will give you barrel distortion, not pincushion, so the adjustment would not help. Even if you were using an A-lens, I still would not recommend using the pincushion adjustment. If you would like to talk screens, give us a call.

The OP wasn't talking about you using a curve screen to fix anything. A curve screen is used with an A-Lens or you will degrade your image. Also, I don't think you can even buy a 16:9 curve screen. A curve screen is for cinemascope screens, therefore an A-Lens is needed.

If you want wow factor, go with a cinemascope screen. Then you can use a curved screen and an a lens. That's wow.
