The indications after several weeks of testing is quite positive for the v7 in a tensioned solution. Actually it seems to behave even better than many PVC-based screens (regular non-AT plastic screens) as there are no indications of horizontal lines after being rolled up for extended periods of time. We are currently testing it on a medium sized Ø7cm tube (the tube being used to roll the fabric onto within the cassette), and as this seems to be sufficient, the cassettes would not have to be overly large either.

We will continue our tests, but thus far it looks promising in terms of a future v7-based tensioned solution.

I am actually looking for a retractable Dreamscreen. Just got a sample of v7 and it looks great.
However, I still prefer the v6 due to its superb AT performance. Unfortunately, the local dealer only offers the v7 option.
According to your previous post in 2017, shouldn't it be possible to make a retractable v6?

Yes, unfortunately that is accurate, the v7 fabric is a bit heavier and as such, more suited a retractable solution.

Thanks. Does it mean that there will never be a retractable v6?
The v6 is just not a good match for a retractable version, it requires too much stretch for such a solution, so those solutions will be using the v7.

So v7 is only retractable / roll up screen?
Not fixed tension?
Yes, we are certainly using tension on the v7 motorised retractable screens, and it works very well as far as our tests thus far has confirmed (and we are still testing the stability over time), but as for the v6-fabric, the tension-requirements supersedes what we are able to do with those tension rods.

What is the best way to get a sample of the V7 material?

I am pleased to report that tomorrow I will be upgrading my circa 15' wide 2.065:1 aspect ratio automated 4-way masking Display Technologies projection screen by upgrading the screen material to DreamScreen UltraWeave V7.

It is replacing the DT Screens ATWow acoustically transparent screen material.

This upgrade is long overdue and I consider to be an all-important necessity in advance of commencing my in-depth scientific analysis and review of both the Sony GTZ380 4K HDR laser projector and the Christie Griffyn HC 4K HDR RGB laser projector.

The screen material is due to be delivered tomorrow so I am hoping to have it fitted by close of play tomorrow!




Has anyone taken over for this man and his report ?

We have had some issues with our current batch of samples due to an unfortunate storage incident at the warehouse, but as soon as our pending production is ready we´ll be sure to have samples available. Our US distributor AVScience.com might have some available (they are the only ones with any v7 left in the world at the moment...), so you could ask them, and if not, we´ll supply them with fresh samples ASAP.

Wow Nigel congrats , what upgrade screen side
After 4,5 Years i'm still happy with my 12" curved V6 an 12 feet wide screen!

Upgrade to V7 is no way for me, I would like to have the higher gain, but finance and acoustical reasons are bigger points against it.
@Lygren I saw the screen
at your new upcoming Democinema in Oslo will get a V8 fabric. Can you share same further informations here ?

Hi Dirk! Unfortunately, a v8 is far off if ever becoming a reality. The only way of increasing gain further than the v7 already has is going beyond a unity gain base. We have tested several solutions where this is possible, but never without too many visual drawbacks such as more visible structure and speckle. For a dark cinema room, my opinion is that unity gain, unless we can figure out how to move beyond without causing visible artefacts, is the best possible solution.
