Choosing the best projector screen for you.
Whether you’re wanting a large visual landscape for business presentations or you’re creating the ultimate home theater room for movie nights and watching the big game, a projection screen is a key component in accomplishing both scenarios. Your home will be the preferred location for all viewing parties because you and your guests will enjoy the cinema-like experience that a home movie projector screen provides. And you can be the boss of any boardroom with a portable projector screen that quickly sets up for meetings and events. Before you decide between a projection screen with stand included or a fixed TV projector screen, there are a couple things to consider.
For starters, how much room or wall space do you have available for the screen, and will it accommodate the size you want? Secondly, will the depth of the room allow for your home theater seating to be placed at the right distance depending on the picture quality? For example, with a 120-inch projector screen showing 4K or higher-resolution content, viewers can sit closer to the screen without the image being distorted. However, for 1080p resolution content, viewers should sit further away. Depending on how high-tech you want your equipment to be, there are multiple screen options at varying price points. A manually powered, pull-down projector screen is great if you're on a budget, while a motorized projector screen tends to run higher in price and is remote-control operated.
Getting the most out of your projector screen.
Today’s projector screens are even more versatile, thanks to creative design and upgraded technology. Not only can you install a home projector screen in a media room as part of a whole home theater system complete with surround sound, but you can also enjoy movies outside with portable projector screens constructed especially for this purpose. Watching box-office blockbusters in backyards under the stars is growing in popularity thanks to outdoor projector screens that make it easier than ever to set up such an enchanted environment. Whether inflatable or freestanding, these durable outdoor projector screen models are a snap to put up and take down.
Once the projector screen is in place, connect your projector to wireless Bluetooth speakers and watch movies, sports, TV programs, concerts and more. To further recreate the movie theater experience, pop a fresh batch of kernels in the popcorn machine then sit back and enjoy the show.
