Proscenium motorised masking. It looks great and there's one thing that would likely convince me to start saving for one. How does the electric masking work alongside the magnetic masks - does it slide under them? If so, would it be possible to have the magnetic masks take a 150" 16:9 screen down to scope, then have the electric masks take that back to a smaller 16:9? I'm after a solution for variable aspect movies.

Re. Center Stage XD - does the size of the screen have any influence on how visible the weave is? I'm guessing not, but would like some assurance. Everything I've read suggests 11' or over is fine and we'd be watching at 12' at either 130"-140" wide scope, or 150" 16:9.

Cheers!
The optional magnetic masking panels fit in front of the motorized masks, inside the edge of the velvet fascia. In theory we can do what you're asking for, but it'd be a first. Normally we're providing the magnetic panels in a Proscenium build to get 1.33 or do an inexpensive 4-way system.

The visibility of the XD texture is just a function of viewing distance and one's personal acuity to it. The general consensus is about 11', but we have both happy customers at 8' and people who can see it at 14'. To determine if you're good at 12', I'd suggest a sample. If it were me, I'd go with UF at 12'.

Cheers,
Chris

Thanks, Chris. Much appreciated! If we go with the screen size we want, we're right at the cusp re. brightness, so would want the gain. Samples sound like a sensible plan.

I'll bear that in mind re. the Proscenium. It seems the best of all worlds to me - CIH with the option for variable imax (or just massive 19:9 for giggles )

All the best.

Has anyone seen the Glacier White PS material in the wild? I can't see a neutral gain screen on the website and this looks like Seymour's non AT white option. If so, any sheen at all? I'm torn between two room configurations - one that has room for an false wall/AT screen and one that doesn't - and want to stick with Seymour for their masking options. I notice the sheen on Studiotech 130 material and wouldn't want that.

Hello - Just stumbled across these screens on the Epson 5050 board. Was just about to pull the trigger on a Silver Ticket 135" Woven Acoustic.

Don't know if I can get a good unbiased answer here but will try - is there or would I notice a big step up in paying for a $1500 Seymour screen versus a $500 Silver ticket screen?

Room is pretty dark but we only use the projector at night time, so it's totally dark by then.

Epson 5050 projector will be set up 15-16' away from the screen, which would go in approximately the black rectangle as pictured.

More choices to paralyze my decision making - thanks for any help and suggestions.

Behind is a white wall and white cabinets as you can see, so was considering the added black. Current screen is 90"
