Screen Recommendation for JVC X790R

After upgrading my projector to JVC x790 I’m Looking to upgrade my 120” Silver Ticket white screen. I’m in a light controlled room with flat black paint and dark carpet. Projector throw is 12.5” and viewing distance is 9’.

At this point I’m looking at Stewart Neve 123” (not sure if I can fit the extra couple inches though), Stewart StudioTek 130, and SeymourAV Glacier White. The SeymourAV screen looks to be almost half the cost, which is considerable - especially since I have US to CDN exchange to consider.

Any other suggestions for a moderate gain screen?

Rec Room: JVC x790 w/120" Silver Ticket screen, Denon x4400H 5.1.4 with Kef Q100 L/R, Q200 centre, T101 surrounds, Ci160er rear atmos, Energy Rc-Mini - front atmos, SVS PC-2000. Family Room: LG 65B7P OLED, Denon x1500H 5.1 - Kef Q500, Q200c, Energy v-mini - surrounds. Extra Gear: X-Rite i1Display Pro, Calman Home Enthusiast, HDFury Vertex2, & HTPC w/2080 Ti.

Getting a RS440U’s soon . But always wondered what other screens look like

Sounds like that screen is super hard to find and people love it so I'd take good care of that screen as nothing like it is made any longer.

Audio: Anthem mrx720 running 7.1.4, McIntosh MC-303, MC-152, B&W 802d3 LR, B&W HTM1D3 center, B&W 805d3 surround, B&W 702S2 rear, B&W 706s2 x 4 shelf mounted for atmos, 2 sub arrays both infinite baffle: 4x15 fi audio running on behringer ep4000 + 4x12 fi audio running on 2nd ep4000.

I have the Seymour AV Glacier white screen in 120 inches. Black velvet dedicated room. I love my screen. Much better image than my original Elite white screen. I would look into this screen as well.

Thank for suggesting. I’ve considered Elunevision as well. However, their Reference Studio 4K 125” is similar in price to the Seymour AV Precision. I also don’t care for the wall mounting on the Elune screens - Its the same brackets as the ST.

What are the issues with the current screen? In a batcave room like that the screen should be invisible unless there are flaws in it. I would put my extra $ in professionally calibrating the projector to your current screen as I think this would improve PQ more then the cost of a new screen that may only marginal improve PQ.

That’s my dilemma. I keep reading that Silver Ticket screens are nice starter screens, but there are noticeable improvements once you jump to a Seymour or Stewart. I’m not entirely convinced to be honest and may just stick with the ST for now. I think the biggest driver is getting a new screen that has a slightly higher gain for HDR. I like a bright image.

Thank you for the suggestion, but I have my own calibration gear and the JVCs have an Autocal feature that I also use. I’m no pro, but I’m 90-95% there.

I also have a Silver Ticket screen and started with their matte white screen. I then switched to their 1.3 gain raw material and found it smoother, 12% brighter and more neutral. The standard 1.1 gain matte white screen has a very slight blue tint (noted by some reviewers but can be calibrated out). The 1.3 gain material is only available raw so you need to form the pockets for the mounting rods.

The best part is the cost - only $60 USD plus shipping, for a 62”x112” piece:

I have done measurements of all their screen materials and you can see the results here:

I went from the Silver Ticket 110" 1.1 gain white screen to a Stewart Cima Neve 115" 2.35:1 screen and the improvement was considerable. The screen is brighter, has better black levels and is considerably sharper, with no visible screen texture. I highly recommend this screen!

A screen cannot make black levels darker while making the white brighter, unless the black floor is limited by room reflection and the screen is directional (rejects light from the reflections more than direct light from the projector).

I don't know what to tell you. My perception of the black levels are that they are improved after the swap out of the screens.

The Cima Neve has been measured closer to 1.25 gain. Maybe the Silver Ticket he had is really closer to unity gain. That could mean the Silver Ticket sent light in all directions, lighting up his walls and ceiling, and the Cima Neve sent more light back towards the projector, washing out blacks less. Or, blacks just look darker since it's a brighter screen.

That’s exact what I meant by “unless the black floor is limited by room reflection” in my previous post.

Ultimately if someone likes their screen better, that's what counts !

I like Glacier White PS but it does show some texture on 4k material when compared to SF Cima Neve. Since my light controlled room is not a complete bat-cave, I wonder if going with a white screen will wash out image during bright scenes. Seymour Matinee Wide is also great screen under my consideration. With its ALR properties, Matinee Wide does better with not reflecting light all over my room but it does darken overall image. With HDR being one of the main draws of 4K, I really hate loosing my brightness especially since my JVC is already great at reproducing blacks. Interestingly, with 3D content, Matinee Wide looks just as bright as white screens! However, majority of my watching is bound to be 2D and either Glacier White or Cima are brighter.

Decisions, decisions.

For what it is worth I have not seen texture on any scenes. Glacier White went PS( perfectly smooth) a little over two years ago so maybe people reporting seeing texture have the older screen material. I love my Glacier White PS screen.
