Not sure what you mean by backlight but my screen sits about 2' out from a wall and I have perimiter rope lights behind the screen shining on the wall. I have a DLP projecting onto a white screen. The "backlighting" enhances the black level by fooling your eyes. This trick was courtesy of this forum.

Right. However, don't your eyes also lose perceived shadow details?

Sushi,

So you are saying that a "backlight" is not recommended then? Please elaborate. Thanks.

No, Markito. I do not know the answer; I was simply asking... I, too, wish somebody could shed light on this one (pun intended).


But, my scientific instinct tends to say that, if back-lighting enhances the perceived blacks by forcing your eyes to adapt to a higher level of brightness, then it may also render shadow details more difficult to be resolved by your eyes. Just my guess...
