A projector screen is a purpose built display area for the images from your projector to be shown for the convenience of a wider audience or home entertainment
Are there different types of projector screens?
Yes. There are 2 main types of projector screens, a portable and installation. The screens usually come in 2 main viewing ratios of 4:3 (standard screen) or 16:9 (widescreen).
What screen should I use?
Depending on the type of presentation (video, PowerPoint, Spread Sheets), location and number of participants, you will need a different screen. For groups of people that meet in various locations, you will need a portable screen. If you are looking to fit out a boardroom, classroom or a home cinema, you will need an installation screen.
What viewing ratio should I use?
As a rule of thumb, you use the 4:3 screen ratio for all your business presentations that include PowerPoint and Excel components and you will be able to display a video if your presentation requires such.
The 16:9 ratio is used for boardrooms and home cinema/entertainment rooms as it provides the widescreen experience and combined with the right projector allows you to enjoy and appreciate the display to the fullest.
