    I'm looking for black backing for my screen (Grandview Flat Series Fixed 4K AT) I already have a black fabric on the wall behind the screen so not sure can I improve the contrast further by placing black backing just behind the screen. But if I can improve I will ;) So if you have experiences...

    Because my screen is relatively narrow for CIH due to a close seating distance it seems the edge of the mask doing the masking is always blocking the speaker? ~92" wide AT CIH 2.35 Seymour UF screen on 24" deep false wall, dark room light, controlled, speakers ~2" from back of screen...

    I hadn't seen Screen Research at CEDIA for the last couple of years, so I was a bit surprised to find the company's booth on the show floor. The French screen maker was acquired by the Italian Adeo Group in 2011, and manufacturing was established at the Adeo Screen factory in Poland. Wanting to...

    The Seymour-Screen Excellence Enlightor-4K is one of the top woven acoustically transparent (AT) screens on the market today. Not one to rest on its laurels, the company introduced a new woven AT material at CEDIA—the Seymour-Screen Excellence Enlightor-Neo. With a gain of 0.8, Enlightor-Neo...

    Screen Innovations is well known for its projection-screen materials, such as Slate (gain 1.2 or 0.8) and Pure (gain 1.3 or 0.85). But these materials are not acoustically transparent—that is, they haven't been until now. Today, the company announced that both can now be ordered as "perf...

    So here's the deal: I'm currently finishing up an AT screen build and adding velvet around the screen. I had a TON of trouble finding any good comparison photos or hard data regarding which products absorb the most light or reflect colors evenly. So: I have access to a very accurate Spectral...

    I am looking into a room layout and being an AV newbie, I'm requesting a second set of eyes for things I may be missing. The layout looks like this: http://i.imgur.com/zBsnIfa.png. Ambient light: I only plan on opening the window near the sofa occasionally, but don't know where to begin...

    Just a couple days ago we signed a contract with a builder for our new house, and in that house, above the detached garage, will eventually be our new dedicated theater room! :eek: House construction should start in 30-60 days and be finished around November of this year. Then hopefully the DIY...

    Hello All! After looking at different screen options I stumbled across this forum and the various posts describing building spandex acoustically transparent screens. It has definitely been interesting reading the historical progression of screens over the last five to six years. My plan is...

    After years of waiting I finally have a house with a partially unfinished basement that will be acceptable for a decent home theater. I only say "acceptable" and "decent" because of all the time I've spent on here looking for ideas. But really aside from having to box in a HVAC duct starting...

    SOLD. I have an unused piece of Seymour XD screen material for sale. The size is approximately 120" x 50" -- a little over half the size of the original piece. Perfect for a DIY 2.35:1 scope screen (I should know, since that's just what I did with the other half ;) ). It will ship rolled in...
