The high power is pretty neat for watching tv during the day with moderate ambient light. My projector is ceiling mounted though. Is there a vinyl material with similar gain and cost specifics that is angular reflective?

Draper M2500 material is high gain angular reflective.

there are few products that are up in the high gain neighborhood that are vinyl backed. The Stewart Ultramatte is 2.75 or something and the Vutec pearlbright/Draper 2500 are probably under 2.5 gain


all are tensionable too!


Vutec does make one on non tensionable material for cheaper pulldown

But man, I would imagine that these materials hotspot like crazy, unlike the High Power.

I'm comparing the Draper m2500 to my High Power. Both at 96" wide as we speak. They are incredibly the same, with the M2500 much better from side to side and no hotspotting that's obvious anyway. When ceiling mounted (Benq 8700), the High Power was the same in a 20 degree central sitting cone, but the Draper was better outside that cone. Now here's the head scratcher, the High Power has a little more yellow/green (folks, I mean very slight) in it and doesn't hold the blacks as well. It is very subtle and took many minutes of looking back and forth and pulling one screen over the other half way.


But final conclusion I've made: M2500 holds blacks and colors better, but and this is the biggets butttt, the dang M2500 has tire tracks here and there that will drive you nuts. It looks like brush strokes of light and dark--mainly seen on very bright white or one color scenes. It's a b**ch, because, I think it could clearly hold it's own against the High Power if they could just get the material right. The High Power is so clean, it's hard to resist, but I was really surprised at the subtle color and contrast shift that the M2500 provided to the better. Some of that contrast shift could surely be the difference between reflective and angular material,though.
