I am looking at two Da-Lite screens:


Da-Snap

16:9

106" Diagonal


Either HCMW or HCCV.

Both screen materials seem to offer similar features (gray base, 1.1 Gain, 45 degree viewing angle etc), with the exception that the HCCV mentions "high powered" DLP or LCD PJ's


I am running a Hitachi 5500 on whisper mode (1200 ANSI), and at 16:9 ratio. Of course I will be 'losing' some brightness running in 16:9, however it seems plenty bright on my current matte white screen. I could do with better blacks, and I only have moderate light control during the day.

I am also planning on calibrating the PJ in near future, so the brightness may drop to 900 ANSI Lumens?


I don't like the image on gray screens with 0.8 gain as the whites seem to be washed out, despite the better black level, and I want a screen material that gives the best results with least compromises - yeah, I'm dreaming!!


;)


Thanks for all and any advice.

I dont think you have a choice. I think that the HCMW is only good for untensioned screens like a manual or electric untensioned screens. The HCCV is for the electric tensioned and wall screens.
