Screen Surface Da-Lite has a screen surface to suite just about every application known to man, when you have a look at their complete list of surfaces you’ll probably think, why would they bother having so many when they only look a little bit different? But Da-Lite has an army of chemists and each of the screens has a particular forte in overcoming certain real world projection issues. The Cosmopolitan is available in four surfaces, with the most popular multipurpose one being Matte White, here is the full list:

  • Matte White
  • High Contrast Matte White
  • Video Spectra 1.5
  • High Power

To give you a better understanding of the specific advantages and applications of each of these screen surfaces, below is some useful detail: Matte White One of the most versatile screen surfaces and a good choice for situations when presentation material is being projected and ambient light is controllable. Its surface evenly distributes light over a wide viewing area. Colors remain bright and life-like, with no shifts in hue. Flame retardant and mildew resistant. Viewing Angle: 60° Gain: 1.0 High Contrast Matte White Designed for moderate output DLP and LCD projectors. This screen surface is a great choice when video images are the main source of information being projected and where ambient light is moderately controlled. With its specially designed gray base material and reflective top surface, this screen material is able to provide very good black levels without sacrificing the white level output. Flame retardant and mildew resistant. Viewing Angle: 50° Gain: 1.1 Video Spectra 1.5 This screen surface is specially designed with a reflective coating, which provides an increased amount of brightness with a moderately reduced viewing angle. The increased gain of this surface makes it suitable for environments where ambient lighting is uncontrollable and a projector with moderate light output is utilized. Flame retardant and mildew resistant. Viewing Angle: 35° Gain: 1.5 High Power A technological breakthrough, providing the reflectivity and optical characteristics of a traditional glass beaded surface with the ability to clean the surface when necessary. Its smooth textured surface provides the highest gain of all front projection screen surfaces with no resolution loss. The moderate viewing angle and its ability to reflect light back along the projection axis make this surface the best choice for situations where there is a moderate amount of ambient light and the projector is placed on a table-top or in the same horizontal viewing plane as the audience. Flame retardant and mildew resistant. Viewing Angle: 30° Gain: 2.4   Green Da-Lite Da-Lite has always had being a responsible corporate citizen as a top priority, and has wanted to set the example in the communities in which it has operated for over 100 years. Da-Lite have taken this corporate citizenry to the next level by meeting a number of Green initiatives, one from the U.S. Green Building Council and another from the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute. With the U.S. Green Building Council program the screens are assessed to show how much recycled material they contain. The amount depends on the screen size and format but the percentage of recycled material in the screen can range from 0% to 94% in all but the wide 16:10 format screens. The GREENGUARD program takes the lead in low emitting products and materials, and Da-Lite has been certified under certification number 90068. In addition to the GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certification, the Institute has also certified Da-Lite for their GREENGUARD Children and Schools program under citification numbers 90068-01 through 90068-26.
