Da-Lite Fast-Fold Portable Projection ScreenTo better explain what each of those terms actually mean and show which surface is the right one for you, here is Da-Lites description on each surface:

Da-Mat®

A screen surface with a smooth, white vinyl finish for precise image reproduction that provides an exceptionally wide viewing angle and no resolution loss. It is a highly flexible fabric that may be folded or rolled. Its versatility makes it a great choice for situations with good control over ambient light and where an exceptionally wide viewing angle is necessary. Screen surface can be cleaned with mild soap and water. Flame retardant and mildew resistant. Viewing Angle: 60° Gain: 1.0

Da-Tex®

Flexible Fabric Screen: A translucent, neutral gray vinyl fabric that allows rear projection in applications where a rigid acrylic or glass screen are not possible. This specially designed gray vinyl surface offers the same high transmission and low reflectance values as a rigid rear projection screen for optimal viewing. It yields excellent color rendition, image contrast and a moderately wide viewing angle. Ideally suited for both lace and grommet and snap button type screens used in portable installations. This material requires tensioning due to its flexible nature. Screen surface can be cleaned with mild soap and water. Flame retardant and mildew resistant. Viewing Angle: 30° Gain: 1.3

High Contrast Da-Tex®

Flexible Fabric Screen: High Contrast Da-Tex™ is a unity gain rear projection surface with a specially designed dark gray tint and is formulated to provide lower black levels for today’s high output projectors. This surface features optical characteristics similar to rigid rear projection screens. Ideally suited for both lace and grommet and snap button screens used in portable applications. Surface requires tensioning due to its flexible nature. Screen surface can be cleaned with mild soap and water. Flame retardant and mildew resistant. Viewing Angle: 40° Gain: 1.0

Pearlescent

A non-supported vinyl fabric, offering a higher degree of reflectivity and brilliance without loss of image quality or resolution. This surface is a good choice when producing video images with a lower output projector and where there is a high amount of ambient light present. Screen surface can be cleaned with mild soap and water. Flame retardant and mildew resistant. Viewing Angle: 40° Gain: 1.5

Cinema Vision

A unique non-supported vinyl fabric that offers a bright, uniform image with no color shift at any viewing angle. This surface is designed to provide a higher amount of brightness for lower output projector types such as CRT. Its increased reflectivity will help enhance the image brightness in situations where a low level of ambient light is present. This surface is a good choice when producing video images. Screen surface can be cleaned with mild soap and water. Flame retardant and mildew resistant. Viewing Angle: 45° Gain: 1.3

Dual Vision

Flexible Fabric Screen: A unity gain flexible projection fabric capable of both front and rear projection. The surface is ideal for video projection under controlled light conditions. With an exceptionally wide viewing cone, each seat in the audience will observe a uniform, bright, sharp image with no color shift. Surface needs to be tensioned. Screen surface can be cleaned with mild soap and water. Flame retardant and mildew resistant. Viewing Angle: 50° Gain: 1.0

Ultra Wide Angle

Flexible Fabric Screen: Ultra Wide Angle is a flexible rear projection fabric formulated for applications where exceptionally wide viewing angles are desired and ambient light is controlled. Based on its ability to diffuse light uniformly, Ultra Wide Angle fabric is ideal for installations utilizing multiple projection edge blending or wide format screens with short focal length projection lenses. By virtue of its characteristics, Ultra Wide Angle fabric dramatically reduces the potential of hot spotting. Viewing Angle: 80° Gain: 0.70

Draper Access Review

Get your Draper Access E or Draper Access V from TheNerds.net today!

Draper Access Series V Electrol Projection ScreenThe Draper Access is a ceiling recessed projection screen that is all about flexibility, to the point where you can install the Access case before you have even decided which projector or projectors you are going to use, what screen surface to get depending on the seating arrangements, and before you just how controllable the light it going to be.

The Access screen allows you to install just the case during the construction or fit-out stage of building and then later fit the screen viewing surface, which contains the motor in the roller, when everything is finished and clean and every aspect of the projection environment has been decided. All you have to know when fitting the case is what the maximum size is that you could possibly want the screen to be and where it is going to go. Once the case is installed you can install any size of screen up to the maximum in just about any of Drapers comprehensive range of screen surfaces.

The Access concept is a well thought out system from Draper and to provide real comprehensiveness to the system the Access screen is available in a number of different series and models, including masking systems, which should cover just about every type of screen installation out there.

Manual Models:

Series M

Access

Motorized Models:

Series E – standard tensioned, provided by weighted dowel

Access

Ultimate Access – complete motorized closure, for full concealment of the screen when not in use

Access MultiView – features an independently motorized masking system, for dual format projection

Series V – tab tensioned screen, for faithful image reproduction

Access

Ultimate Access – complete motorized closure, for full concealment of the screen when not in use

Access MultiView – features an independently motorized masking system, for dual format projection

Viewing Surfaces

You can get an Access screen to fit into your preinstalled Access case in just about any surfaces that Draper make:

All models/Series E & M are available in;

  • Matt White
  • Glass Beaded
  • High Contrast Grey
  • AT1200
  • AT Grey

All models/Series V are available in;

  • M1300
  • M2500
  • HiDef
  • Cineflex, Drapers rear projection surface

To explain what each of the surfaces do and which one would be suitable for your particular projection environment, here is Draper’s explanation of each surface:

Matt White—Diffuses projected light in all directions, so image can be seen from any angle. Has accurate color rendition and superior clarity. Requires control of ambient light in the audience area. Washable, flame and mildew resistant.

Glass Beaded—Spherical glass beads embedded in surface provide brighter on-axis viewing than Matt White, within a narrower viewing cone. Glass Beaded surfaces have some loss of clarity and perform best with table-mounted projectors. Flame and mildew resistant. Cannot be cleaned. Seamless in standard sizes through 10´ high.

High Contrast Grey—Grey surface offers excellent resolution while enhancing blacks, even as whites and lighter colors are maintained. Performs well in ambient light. Lower gain of 0.8 allows use with even the brightest projectors. Seamless in sizes up to 8´ in height.

AT1200 and AT Grey—Similar in gain performance to Matt White, with acoustical properties comparable to the finest speaker grille cloth. Washable, flame and mildew resistant. Available in sizes through 72˝ x 96˝ or 10´ NTSC diagonal. AT1200 is white; AT Grey is grey for high contrast. Acoustically transparent fabrics are not recommended for screens smaller than 80˝ wide when used with LCD or DLP projectors.

M1300—The perfect Matt White diffusing surface. For use with any type of projector in rooms where light can be reasonably controlled. Washable.

M2500—A high-contrast front viewing surface with excellent resolution and high gain. M2500 tolerates a higher ambient light level than most other front projection screen surfaces.

HiDef Grey—A grey front projection surface that provides excellent contrast and black reproduction with a low gain to handle today’s super-bright projectors. Enhances color contrast, black levels and allows for more ambient light.

Cineflex—A neutral grey vinyl for rear projection. Cineflex has high resolution and excellent contrast, even in lighted rooms. For use with any type of projection equipment. Lower Gain version of Cineflex is also available with peak gain of 0.8.

Draper Access Series E Electrol Projection ScreenScreen Sizes & Formats

Once the decision of which screen surface has been made you need to figure out what format the screen should be and how big or small it should be. The first part, the format, will be easy as you just select the one that is the same is your projector. Deciding on the size however, can be a little bit more involved, for the correct size depends on a number of factors, such as viewing distance, how high on the wall the screen sits, and how far across audience members will be sitting.

High Contrast Grey — Grey surface offers excellent resolution while enhancing blacks, even as whites and lighter colors are maintained. Performs well in ambient light. Lower gain of 0.8 allows use with even the brightest projectors. Seamless in sizes up to 8´ in height.

Acoustically transparent fabrics are not recommended for screens smaller than 80˝ wide when used with LCD or DLP projectors.

Draper Targa Contemporary motor-in-roller electric screenIf you need to mount your Targa screen in a high position the Targa can be specified with extra drop so that the actual vieing surface is at a comfortable viewing height.

Distinctive fabric retention program allows you to adjust the area tension (up to ½.) in only seconds, without having tools. Permanent wall installation brackets included.

The Onyx is available in a full range of Draper sizes and formats, including the exciting 2.35 CinemaScope format which brings the full excitement of the cinema into the home, which when coupled with an anamorphic lens in front of your projector will enable you to use the full resolution of you projected when watching anamorphic films.

Screen Surfaces

Once you have decided which format is appropriate for where you are installing the screen and the predominant type of media you are going to be projecting, the next choice is which screen surface is going to work best in your environment and yield you the best image and the most flexibility in terms of seating. The Onyx comes in the following Draper surfaces:

Draper Onyx with Veltex 253431 Fixed Frame Projection ScreenFront Projection

  • M1300
  • M2500
  • HiDef Grey
  • AT1200
  • AT Grey

Rear Projection

  • Cineflex

To give you a better understanding as to what are the pros and cons of each of these surfaces here is an explanation on each of them from Draper:

M1300—The perfect Matt White diffusing surface. For use with any type of projector in rooms where light can be reasonably controlled. Washable.

M2500—A high-contrast front viewing surface with excellent resolution and high gain. M2500 tolerates a higher ambient light level than most other front projection screen surfaces.

HiDef Grey—A grey front projection surface that provides excellent contrast and black reproduction with a low gain to handle today’s super-bright projectors. Enhances color contrast, black levels and allows for more

ambient light.

AT1200 and AT Grey — Similar in gain performance to Matt White, with acoustical properties comparable to the finest speaker grille cloth. Washable, flame and mildew resistant. Available in sizes through 72˝ x 96˝ or 10´ NTSC diagonal. AT1200 is white; AT Grey is grey for high contrast. Acoustically transparent fabrics are not recommended for screens smaller than 80˝ wide when used with LCD or DLP projectors.

Cineflex—A neutral grey vinyl for rear projection. Cineflex has high resolution and excellent contrast, even in lighted rooms. For use with any type of projection equipment. Lower Gain version of Cineflex is also available with peak gain of 0.8.

Options

Given this is a fixed frame, once you have chosen the size the screen surface there is not really much else to specify, like would be in an electric screen, the Onyx really only has one option; the Veltex Covered Body kit. This is a velvety dark fabric applied over the whole frame reducing reflections to practically zero as well as concealing all remnants of joints within the frame.
