Fixed Frame CinemaScope Acoustic Transparent Curved Projector Screen
A curved screen reaches into the viewer’s peripheral vision creating the illusion that they are being drawn into the picture. This perceived reality is further reinforced by a curved screen’s ability to cover the centre AND the right & left channel speakers. This is important because it joins the image with the sound from the three forward points of sound origin (Right, Centre, & Left Channels) creating a sound stage effect that results in a more realistic association between sound and the picture.
Lastly, a properly curved frame design eliminates a visual artefact known as “pincushion effect”. Pincushion effect happens when (on a 2.35:1 or other wide-angle screen) the distance to the right & left edges of the projected image are larger than the centre resembling an hourglass laying on its side. This is caused by light expanding over the greater distance it travels. The further the distance, the larger the light “footprint”. On a CinemaScope projection screen, light must travel a greater distance to the right/left edges than it does at the centre. The distance actually causes the image to expand disproportionately on the sides creating a sideways “hourglass” image where the centre of the picture is smaller than the right & left ends are. Since the right/left edges of the screen are curved forward on a “curved” screen, it allows the light to travel the same distance to any other point on the screen as it does to the centre. This results in a “uniform” image that is free from distortion. With all the benefits that a curved frame projection screen has to offer, more and more dedicated home theatre aficionados favour them.
Why Acoustic Transparent Projector Screens ?
Acoustic transparent projector screens are those which allow you to place the speakers behind the projector screen without losing audio quality. This can be beneficial in helping you make room for your home theatre system, while also giving the impression that when people are speaking on screen their voice is actually coming directly from them.
Another advantage of acoustic transparent projector screens is that, unlike solid screens, they don't act as another wall to reflect sound off.
Perforated screens use a strong screen material that has been perforated with thousands of holes.
An Acoustic Woven screen is as it sounds, rather than having regular spaced holes it is done via a weave (just as you weave clothes) which creates an uneven pattern of very small holes which allows sound through but the holes cannot be seen.
