How to Choose the Right Projector Screen for Your Projector

Author:Jake | TIME:January 16,2018

So you have just bought a quality projector and can’t wait to project the image and video somewhere to view. We know that it is also OK if you blast the image onto a white wall, but if you want to have an optimized experience from the projector, it’s better to match the projection device with a quality projector screen. As a matter of fact, front projectors should go with the rear projection screen.


So how to choose the right projector screen for your projector? The process is more than simply getting a white sheet; instead, you will need to think about a variety of factors, including pricing, size, shape, type, aspect ratio, and so on. And below are some of the most important things to consider while buying the best screen.


Important Factors to Consider While Choosing A Projector Screen


Your Budget

Though in general projector screens of higher price are better than those that are cheaper, it doesn’t mean that you have to choose the most expensive ones. Some models at affordable price also offer the same effect. You may check out our selections in the following part of this article.


Screen Type

Depending on different usage, projector screens can be divided into different categories. But they can in general be classified in wall/ceiling screens and portable screens, each of which can be subdivided into several types.

Wall/Ceiling Screens include: manual pull down screens, fixed frame screens and electric/motorized screens.
Portable Screens include: tripod screens, ezCinema floor pull-up screens, ezCinema plus floor pull-up screens and quickstand folding screens.


Screen Size

When it comes to the size of the projector screen, you may need to take the room/wall size/distance into consideration. Besides, you need to make sure the image can be fully cast onto the screen.


Aspect Ratio

There are several aspect ratios to choose.

  • 1:1 - This offers a perfectly squared screen format for overhead projectors (OHP) and it is largely used in Educational/Classroom environments.

  • 4:3 - This aspect ratio is the same as a standard television (Non-High Definition) or computer (SVGA, XGA, UXGA) resolution.

  • 16:10 - This ratio is widely used for the latest WXGA or WUXGA notebooks.

  • 16:9 - This is the High Definition Television (HDTV) format and is the most popular aspect ratio for the latest television designs.

  • 2.35:1 - This is the Widescreen Cinemascope format that works perfect with the new anamorphic lenses on the market today.
