I have an infocus screenplay 5700 projector on order,

(same brightness, contrast, housing as the 7200, but 1024*576)

since I live in a PAL-country this resolution is just what i need to watch DVD

(and above all it fits my budget)


The 5700 is calibrated to 6500K out of the box and delivers 20 ft.Lt on a 100" screen without gain in the low-power mode,

CR = 1400:1



I have never seen a grey screen and there is no way I can see one where I live. After the endless white-vs.-grey debates, I think a white screen would be the safest option.

BUT ... I can darken my room completely, but the walls are white and they have to stay this way.

Will a white screen suffer from this and how much ??


I don't think I will need a gain-screen, this way I avoid possible sparklies and a brightness-overkill.



My choice:

Dalite DaMat


Any other suggestions or considerations?

Thanks in advance

I doubt you'll actually get 20ftL, but it is possible I suppose. I'd guess more like 16-17. I know InFocus says it puts out 800 lumens in low power mode but after calibration I doubt it will.


I assume you mean 100" wide correct?


I suggest you get a sample of HCCV and see if you see sparkles, if not I would get it over the Da-Mat. The apparent contrast gain would be significant in a white room like yours.

The dalite-distibutor in Belgium cannot provide me with a sample,

I even offered to pick it up and bring it back.


For the rejection of ambient light: a grey screen,

for the color fidelity: a white one ...
