Where can I buy a 2.0:1 screen?

Not much of a DIY guy, does anyone know of a place that sells these? Trying to maximize an inset in my theater room. I've had 2:35:1 CIH setup for 10 years, looking to gain some size in my setup.

I think projectorscreen.com will do custom size screens, I imagine they might do a custom aspect ratio as well.

Pretty much all screen companies will make you a custom size / aspect ratio screen. Stewart, Seymour etc.

Not 2.10:1?
Im about to order a 130" UF screen from Seymour in 2.1:1 format.

Sound and video is not magic, it is pure physics. Physics that can be magical

I have a 2.0 (12ft wide, 6ft high) Dalite HP2.4 screen. Dalite will make any size you want.

PS The Dalite HP material was discontinued several yrs ago. Does anyone know if it has be re-introduced?

Thank you! I actually ordered a Dalite one 10 days ago, can't wait until it gets here. They have a nice designer program on their website for custom screens.

Which screen material? I love the HP2.4, sitting ~ 10.5ft from it. For 16x9 pics I zoom to full height (72") and 128" wide; for 2.4 pics I zoom to use the full width (144") and the height is 60". My pj is ~4 ft behind my head, projecting right over it.

HDPRO 1.1. I have a laser sony PJ and sit about 8 feet away in a pitch black room....so don't need a whole lot of gain. I'll see how it goes...

Nope. It's gone. Be very careful with yours!
