Screen Innovations Series 5 16:9 Fixed Frame and Slate 1.2 Material

12.8. Update
Price dropped to $200 for each.



As referenced in my posting for the brand new screen, I also have some material that SI sent me during the process of ordering my new screen.



Series 5 16:9 Frame - $200
I didnt measure it with a whole lot of precision, as it was very obvious the frame was way too small for my material. But i think it was about 119" corner to corner of the frame. So that would somewhere around 112" viewing. Obviously if i were you, i'd double check this to be absolutely sure. All you need to do is order some screen material and you have a steal for a sick screen.


2 x Slate 1.2 Screen Material in 2.35 cut. 126" X 58 - $200 each
So this is where i ran into some problems. There was an issue with the screen material shrinking when it was in transit, so while the original material i was supposed to get was supposed to be around 128" in width, it kept coming in around 126. So i had 2 sets of this sent to be before we could figure out the issue and get the problem solved.
Therefore, these should be used as a DIY project where you are just looking for some ALR material. There is a rip on one of the connecting buttons on one of the sets from us trying to get it to fit the frame (picture shown). you should plan on cutting this portion off as i would assume you would be resizing the material regardless. Also you would want to smooth them out a bit as they have been rolled up for about 2 weeks now and have some slight indents from the buttons.

Think of this as a great opportunity to get screen material which usually costs over $2000 for a couple hundred bucks.

I'm hoping this stuff goes to someone who has been looking for a really good ALR option for their theater. As shown in the picture attached of one of my previous Slate screens, these are some of the best screens you can buy!

please ask any questions!

Hello,

I believe these slate screen materials are still available for DIY. I am an amateur who is in process of buying a JVC RS440 projector, and will need a complimenting screen to go with it. I have never done a DIY for projector screen, but may try it or use professional help since I am passionate about tech DIYs, and am on a budget as well. Hence looking to get best possible screen/material for myself.

Will this material shape up into a 16:9 display screen of 120+ inches, and be framed as an edgeless display (DIY will be pursued as such). I am based in Seattle, WA and do not have enough posts to be able to send you a PM.

Let me know though!

Thank you,
Vishal

Hi Vishal,

It wouldnt make 120" in a 16:9 format, but you could get fairly close. If you were to consider a 2.35 widescreen format, this would be a very good bargain for you.

What size can be expected in 16:9 resolution though, so be exact? I haven't done this ever, hence I am not good with calculation either.

Also the shrinking of fabric which you mentioned in your post, does it remain that way or it can be fixed by placing the fabric in sunlight or warm temperature.

I may have few questions/doubts, so please PM me and we can continue the discussion there. I don't have enough posts here, hence cannot send you a PM.

I see you have quite an experience about AV products through your posts so far. I may use your advice on certain things too, since I am planning to buy the setup right now.

Thanks,
Vishal

Bumping per forum rules. I've dropped the price to $200 for each screen material. If you want to purchase both rolls, i will do it for $300 shipped.
The screen frame is also available still. $250 shipped for that as well.
