I just got a good deal on a SVGA Projector with a contrast ratio 2500:1. It gets good quality in a 100″ image on a white wall so I am planning to get a screen without spending too much. What should I buy?

Many people are using SVGA Projectors for videos and gaming with good results.  Here are some ideas for selecting your Projection Screen.

  • Step 1: Choose a screen that is somewhere between the $100 to $400 price point (excluding size factors). As a rule of thumb, try to keep the cost of your screen to about 30% of your projector’s cost for the sake of proportional spending.
  • Step 2: Choose a 4:3 or 16:9 format screen, depending on how much time you will be involved with TV, gaming or movies that have various formats from 4:3, 16:9, and 2.35:1.
  • Step 3: MaxWhite® or CineWhite® is the best choice for you.  But you may also consider high contrast gray material to improve your black levels if you are watching presentation with an SVGA projector with a low contrast ratio at about 2000:1 with a high output that exceeds 1500 lumens.  Contrast gray is primarily used to improve black levels but the diminished light return should always be considered.
