Lately I’ve been a bit outspoken about aspect ratios and the format most commonly referred to as anamorphic or 2.35:1. While many of my recent comments have been viewed as “attacks” against the aspect ratio or format, I insist they’re anything but. But in order to better understand maybe it’s best if I start at the beginning.

At one time, two of my favorite Los Angeles–area theaters were in Westwood: the Village and the National. The Village had, and still has, a huge, flat screen. The National (tragically closed and torn down in 2008) had a gently curved one of about the same size. While the Village had the more awesome audio, I always preferred the subtly more immersive visual presentation at the National. For that and other reasons, I’ve always wanted to try a curved home theater screen but generally considered them poor values.

Elite StarBright™ 7 High-Gain Projector Screen

Traditionally, if one needed to use a projector in a room with a lot of light, the answer was to get a brighter projector. But what if one could instead get a brighter screen? Elite's StarBright 7 is a new 7.0 gain screen material that helps bring lower lumen output projectors into the light of day.

The StarBright™ 7 works by taking the light from your projector and reflecting it back at a narrower angle. As a result, the StarBright™ 7 gives you a significantly brighter picture if you're sitting in the "sweet spot" where all the reflected ...

This was due to certain limitations of the screen, that limited the number of potential users.

I initially reviewed the first "version" of this screen over a year ago when it first reached the market.

It did, however, also have a major shortcoming, and that was a visible hot spot in line with the projector.

Not that long ago a church that had a projector screen was “cutting edge.” However, today having a projector screen in church is almost, dare I say, a requirement. Also, more and more churches are going portable, for both main site and multi-sites. Anyone working or volunteering in a portable church knows the importance of time—and gear that saves time.

ezCinema Plus Projection Screen Review by Gaming Shogun

Elite Screens ezCinema Plus series represents a new paradigm in how people setup their projection screens. While the idea of a pull-up screen has been around for awhile, Elite has done it like no one else by way of a “scissor” style skeletal system along with pneumatic pistons to hold the armature in place. The result is an extremely easy to use projector screen that also has great portability. The model we received to review, model F100XWH1, features a 16:9 screen ratio of 100-inches diagonally and has a 49×87-inch viewable area.

The screen itself is ...

ProjectorCentral.com - PicoScreen™

ProjectorCentral.com’s Jeff Janas put Elite’s PicoScreen™ tabletop projection screen through its paces and here is what he had to say: “For less than $100, the PicoScreen™ gives a consistent display surface that is easy to take anywhere. The quick and easy setup and take down make it practical to use as a temporary screen for the kids or to bring along for an ad-hoc office presentation. After spending some quality time with the Elite Screen, I'm convinced this is a no-brainer accessory if you frequently use a portable or pico projector.” (see full review)

Affordable Projectors for Non-Dedicated Home Theater Rooms - Mitsubishi HC5500 & Elite Cinema Screen 

Introduction

I am continuing my journey into the world of affordable front projector systems, with a special emphasis on systems that are suitable for multi-use rooms. My first foray, the Sanyo PLV-Z2000, was a success. But I didn’t have anything to compare it to, at least in my own home environment. Now comes the first challenger, the Mitsubishi HC5500, another affordable 1080p projector. These projectors use the same basic display technology (LCD panels), so provide a pretty good apples-to-apples comparison.

Since the goal of the series ...

ezCinema Series, 80-inch 16:9

I have recently completed a review of the Optoma DV11 Home Entertainment projector. This product integrates a DVD player and stereo speakers into a projector and makes for the type of entertainment system that can be pulled out and assembled, at will, in a living room setting. The perfect screen to complement such a system would be durable, portable and equally easy to pull out and set up. Elite Screens ez-Cinema systems match that description perfectly. What makes this such a compelling product, in the complementary ease-of-use and low price point. With a retail price of just $249 for an ...

Yardmaster (OMS100H) outdoor projection screen review by Stereowise Plus

Jeff and Jenafer Roy Review the YardMaster Outdoor Projection Screen and it made excellent marks

Video has come a long way. I remember the days when IT guys would bring home the business projectors to watch movies on the family room wall. Our first projector was a business one with a sheet! This was about 20 years ago.  Not only have projectors been perfected for home theater, they have also made their way to the outdoors. Up for review today is an excellent, portable outdoor screen ...

Rear Screens Reviews

Yard Master Rear Series Review

"Great screen and excelent portibility-This screen is of very good quality in my opinion, not that I can afford to purchase a bunch of these and compare them side by side. I have yet to test it outdoors but works great to set up inside for movie nights. I have found that I set up the frame, pull the screen over the frame, steam out the wrinkles with a fabric steamer and then tighten up the Velcro straps on the back to make the screen taught. That seems to work best so that you don't ...

12" Wall and Ceiling Hanging L-Brackets for Manual/Spectrum/VMAX2 series

"moving the screen back and forth is quick and easy for fine tuning your screens placement"

"These Elite screen mounting brackets are essentially what you would expect. Nothing fancy, they are just mounts. Comes with drywall anchors and other hardware for optional mounting surfaces. Since I was going into drywall, my interest was in anchor strength. I didn't quit trust the included ones with my expensive 110 inch electric screen and ended up getting Togglers from Lowe's.

Brackets have a powder cost finish. I ordered the 12 inch ...
