Just Projectors have been selling projector screens for over 15 years, anything from a mobile tripod screen up to a large projection screen for an auditorium. There is a great choice out there and we make sure that the screens we sell are of a sufficient quality rather than just being cheap. There will always be say on an auction site one that appears to do everything for 30% less, the problem is they are not made to last. Our screens are designed in Italy, and also the USA, of course the production will be in China but the factory visits and stringent controls make sure that your projector screens are better value then the cheap options. Just Projectors do not have any screens at our office, all of them are reserved in different warehouses and sent out at our request. This ensures that we are able to provide a comprehensive range of screens in many different formats. We can also offer at an additional charge a customised screen whether that is extra length borders, slightly different aspect ratio or your logo printed on the screen. Let us look at the main types of screens available, it might be easier to view them in respect of whether they are mobile or static in one location.
Mobile screens come in 3 main types, there are tripod mobile screens, everyone probably knows or has seen one in the past, when they are stored they are in two parts, the 3 legs hence why they are called a tripod screen expand open and form a sturdy base and a upright pole on which to affix the canister which contains the projection material. Once attached the canister is turn to the horizontal and the material pull down to the required shape to match the image shape you are projecting. Often tripod screens are a format known as 1:1 a square shape. A tripod screen is cheaper than other mobile options, come in sizes from 4ft (1.25m) up to 8ft (2.4m) in 1ft or 30cm increments. The max size for a normal car transportation is 6ft /1.8m so make sure order the right size. If you want the screen to be mobile but within one location say for a church service then you can have the 2.4m as its ideal for a larger audience. Another mobile screen option is the floor pull out of a canister type, more expensive than a tripod, lighter to carry, very popular with the mobile presenter as they simply have the canister unlocked, pull up the screen and you are ready to go. Pull up mobile screens have many aspect ratios ;4:3,16:9,16:10, these match the resolution on your projector if you are unsure which aspect ratio works for you then ask us, we are hear to help. Floor projection range from table top versions to around 7ft wide. They have a easy to carry handle or wheels so you can pull them along, there are pole types for attaching the projection material or a scissor or gas strut method of keeping up the screen. For the larger audience there is really only one solution , you cannot physically fit large canisters into cars, but you might have an audience bigger than 80 people, so why not consider the Fastfold or Rapid fold type of screen. When not being used the kit is kept in a bag or transport canister which can easily fit into a car. When you are ready to use this large projector screen then you make up the rods into the frame, put on the legs and you are then ready to pop on the material, this shouldn't take more than a few minutes so it is really the only choice for the large presenter. Typical users would be a large screen for a church, a screen for an exhibition hall or if you needed a screen for your play or production. We find that we often hire out these projector large screens for film shoots as well. Now we need to look at the option for a permanent projector screen, we can firstly discuss a wall or ceiling manual projector screen. Just Projectors only sell decent ones, we have tested them and we check on customers feedback, the better ones have what is called channel fixings which allow you to fix the screen anywhere on the canister by sliding the mounting point, this is really useful on a chimney breast when if you had to mount the screen just at the end you would not be able to do so as the screen is wider than the chimney. Other features of manual projector screens are slow retraction, this saves the material flying back into the canister and getting creased. Manual screens have many sizes and aspect ratio available but in general 2.5m is about the max otherwise it tends to be tricky for the material to go back into the canister smoothly without the use of an electric motor. The main reason why people buy a manual pull down screen is that is offers such a cost effective solution, far better than just projecting onto a wall unless you are using a ultra short throw projector would look awful on an screen than isn't tensioned. If you have more money in the budget then maybe an electric screen would be desirable. You can either have one with a wall switch in case you are scared you might lose the remote control, all you need to do is press the up/down button on the wall, these tend to be popular in public places or schools as remotes can be a nightmare. if you want an electric screen for your home then I would always go for one with a remote control or if you are having the projector installed then get the installer - we offer this service to make the screen come down when the projector is turned on- projectors need to have either a RS232 connection or a RJ45 connection to initiate that. Electric screens can again can have channel fixings to make them easy to fix to the wall or ceiling, there are some that a twin motor, the first motor drops the whole screen down lower and then the second motor drops the material down. If you have a high ceiling such as a church and the last thing you want to see is a screen then the a twin motor can work for you. The more you spend on your projector dictates how good an electric screen you should purchase, if you say spend £400 on a projector then £250 for the screen makes sense, £1500 on the projector £500 makes sense, you probably would want a tab-tensioned electric projector screen which it comes down then the projection material is pulled out by some wires making the surface flat, which is going to make the best image you can get and especially useful when the screen size gets larger. Other types of electric screen are ceiling recessed, what does that actually mean- well if you have void or space above the ceiling then you can put all the canister out of sight and when you want the screen to come down it goes through the special hole in the trim kit. You will need to have an expert to fit this. It can look really great in an office set-up where you have a slit in the ceiling tiles with the trim kit, especially if the boardroom is say an old style and you don't want an modern screen in view. We do supply some projection screens that have some extra features like acoustic material so you can place the speakers behind the screen, or customised sizes,
