THE best screen ever?

214 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  kelliot
Hi all...maybe this is not a good idea but after reading recent posts here i get an idea...

To obtain a perfectly natural skin color,deep blue and green....and above all ,excellent black,why not make a paint that could be called pinkish grey...As i am painting oil frescs whith home made pigmented custom colors,i had the idea of mixing little bit of pure basic red pigment in the white basis you use to paint your screen and then add the black pigment to obtain the grey..or vice-versa...and so you could obtain a grey paint slightly pink if looked at very close and that could help us obtain a really good image on our digitaly based projection?

Am i totally wrong?crazy?or...Why not?Could (had)somebody try(tried) this?

That's really going to be kind of hit-and-miss. Ideally, you would want a screen that conforms to an established reflectance standard and a projector that was calibrated to produce a 6500K greyscale. Trying to correct a colour imbalance in the projector by tinting the screen may make things worse if you don't have the equipment to test it. Obviously, if you are seeing a gross difference you can probably make your picture much better, but without being able to test your setup it won't be "THE best screen ever". http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif

Not to long ago there was a post from someone who was using a pink tinted screen. If you do a search, you should be able to find it. It's probably been in the last 2 weeks.


this post inspired me...I know that without testing it's probably not sure...but..i remember one year ago when peoples starts thinking about the grey screens...Maybe it's an idea to explore....My goal wasn't exactly to corect a color but to soften the greenish/blueish look of many digital projectors...as statted in the previous post about pink screen....Why not.If somebody have a way to try.... http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif
UHP bulbs are known for pushing green. The pink corrects for that and is suitable for most DLPs since they typically use UHP bulbs.
