Opinion on DaLite Video spectra 1.5?  

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
This is a pearleseant material with a gain of 1.5. I haven`t seen it, but consider it to be an alternative if I buy a screen with moderate gain. I will use it with a Barco 800 CRT projector.

I have the model B myself, but with the matte white material. It has wrinkles, and I can`t get rid of them. I`ve tried to dismantle the screen, but couldn`t find a obvious solution. Will build a custom curved screen instead. May need some screen material, but haven`t deceided yet if I want gain or not

I have this material in the Model C rollup screen. I would guess it's about right for my CRT projector in terms of gain, but the wrinkles are more noticeable than I would have guessed.

I'm going to make a set of sticks and clamps to serve as a poor-man's tabtensioner. I'll try to make a silk purse out of this sow's ear. Will post after trying this experiment.

I`ll probably replace the Model B with a permanently tensioned screen. I plan to buy Draper M2500 fabric and staple it to the back of a wooden frame. The fabric is less than 40% of the price on a Draper Cineperm screen

Will you share your source for purchasing the Draper screen material? Not listed in the AV Science quickstore.
Thanks.

No problem Mike,
polivision@aol.com

I don`t think they have a WEB site, but they have been helpful answering my questions per e-mail. Tehy claim to have the lowest prices, and also offers several brands. Their price on a 92"x69" piece of Draper M2500 fabric is $ 195.

I`ve still not deceided on fabric. The streaking problem on the M2500 conserns me a bit. Maybe worth while to have a look at Stewart Video Matte 2.0?
