What kind of material do you need for your screen:
Ultra short throw projector screen materials come in two types: Lenticular and Fresnel. These materials differ in their screen structure, leading to variations in display performance.
Generally speaking, we recommend CLR lenticular screens as they are more suitable for ordinary households.
If you only plan to watch it alone, or, if you and your partner plan to sit side by side and don't plan to share your film or game with your other friends, you can choose a Fresnel screen. This is because Fresnel screens offer brighter image during daylight hours compared to lenticular screens. (center vision).
However, for ALR Fresnel screens, the viewing angle is typically only around 60-90 degrees. This means that apart from the central position, where the optimal picture is achieved, the brightness of the image seen from other angles is inferior.
If you're aiming to use your screen and projector as a substitute for a traditional TV, especially for hosting gatherings with friends during happy hour, we recommend opting for a Lenticular screen.
