KBK... More info on rear screen goo?

264 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  KBK

I'm looking for more info on some DIY Rear Projection Screens. More specifically, how much would be needed for an 80 inch wide 16x9 screen. Also, this would be for a NEC XG 110 (CRT).. What kind of material is used for the actual screen (what the goo goes on) etc etc.. Or if you could elaborate more on how this is used and what kind of results you have had with maybe a test system you used to create this good. How long it takes to cure, etc etc... just more (so to speak) goooie details! As I haven't seen anything on your site about this rear projection goo.



P.S. Or if anyone else has info about other DIY rear projection screens I would be interested.

AArrrrg, I meant goo not Good.....

Well, our new Rear projection Screen Goo product requires about 1000 ml, or 1 liter for 12 sq ft.

This turns out to be very reasonable priced, even with all costs included (along with fudge factors) compared to what else is out there. The larger the screen, the more reasonable the pricing. Shop around. Get ready for sticker shock.

We have used cheap plexiglas, at 1/8th thickness to try the product out, initially. the product is designed to be sprayed on in multiple thin layers, so that evenness is achieved via the multiple layers. Evenness of coatings is critical for this sort of screen execution/manufacture. We have not tried it with CRT units as of yet. It does extremely well with digital. The places it has been tried in so far have been commercial and these folks are thrilled with it. It meets a price point so low, they can actually use a rear projection set up, for the first time. Gain levels are fairly low, comparatively speaking , but off axis viewing is fabulous.

The thickness of the coating applied will dictate the hotspotting characteristic and the gain level. One can make screen, and go back over it again if the hotspotting is too great, or whatever. In this way, one can get to the screen that ~personally~ satisfies.

It can also be used to create hanging signage, or the like in the middle of a dance club, via hanging a coated sheet of plexi, etc. Applications are endless.

The initial sale of one single application, is 300 installed screens. A neighboring company saw it, and is going to use it as well. Thus, it spins out of control.

One Caveat on this product is:

If there was ever a product in our lineup of products that required knowledgeable, expert spraying ---- this would be it.
