Choosing the right screen material for your screen is essential to achieving the best image from your projector. Critical factors in choosing a screen material include how much ambient light there is in your room, whether or not you will be placing speakers behind the screen, and what maximum angle is that the viewers will be at in relation to the screen. Draper offers an assortment of screen materials to accommodate a variety of scenarios. As the type of screen material is also highly dependant on your specific projector, please consult your projector's manual or if you need additional help, our representatives at HTMarket.com may assist you at +1(888)764-9273.
