Im concerned that the Insta-Theatre says it has a 2.2 gain and to me that sounds way way too high. Im looking for a gain somewhere in the region of 0.8 - 1.2, but realistictly id prefer to have a 1.1 gain i think, on a seamless Matt White screen
Any input is appreciated
Chris, I only had budget for one screen and since my projector has to do triple duty, including showings in rooms with ambient light when I take my films around to screen, I chose a high gain screen rather than a business grade 3000 lumen projector
Of course, I have nothing to compare it to, but I don't think I lost too much contrast with the screen. The fact that the image look so good on a high gain screen is impressive.
When I have more budget, I will probably replace with a matte white screen in 1.2 range myself.
