I'm trying to decide on a retractable screen, scope, AT, anywhere from 100 to 120 wide, JVC NX7 is 16.5 from screen. I'm sitting about 10' away but my couch is small and light and i can easily slide it back and forth between 8' to 12' no problem. Finished basement with one small window and 99% light control.
Question 1) For those with a retractable screen, I assume the borders of SI screens are not velvet, can you (or can you not) see the overspray on your screens? I know my NX7 has the masking/cropping feature, and I know it also has the Aspect:Zoom feature, which should eliminate overspray. However my problem is my PJ is off-center and no matter how hard I try the image is not perfectly rectangular. Therefore I have some overspray and I will be relying on the border to hide the overspray. I'm also considering Stewart, and Seymour which claims to be the only manufacturer on the market with a velvet border on a retractable screen, therefore no need to worry about overspray.
Question 2) What do you recommend for AT screen material?
Question 3) I couldn't find an "official" SI general screen thread. Is this the de facto thread?
Any other comments or suggestions are welcome, thank you!
