a front projection Ceiling Ambient Light Rejecting material capable of absorbing 95% of overhead lighting

StarBright 9®

ISF Certified Products

The StarBright 9® is a lenticular front projection screen material with ceiling ambient light rejecting technology for standard (long) throw projectors. It is designed for use in environments where ambient light cannot be entirely controlled. It relies on optical filters within the material multi-layer structure to reflect the projector’s direct light while absorbing overhead light.

StarBright 9® offers a wide viewing angle without compromising brightness uniformity or color accuracy. An added value is that it works exceptionally well in improving black levels in dark room environments for videophile performance. The composite material eliminates the washout effect, and its black diffusion layer provides high-contrast performance to enhance color saturation and black dynamic range.
