Nowadays, the types of home theater projector screen is mind-boggling. The terms used for home theater projection screen is also technical and many people do not actually understand what they are
If you are looking to buy a home theater projector screen, you need to
first know the different types of home theater projector screens available
on the market. There are 3 types.
1) Fixed Home Theater Projector Screen
These are the most common and the simplest projector screens. They are
usually permanently mounted on the wall once the home theater room design
and performance is settled. One advantage is you can hide those ugly wires
and cables quite easily with this type of installation.
The home theater screen fabric is stretched onto a wooden or aluminum
framework and is held into place with fasteners. This creates the smooth
and wrinkle free white surface. It’s important that the home theater
projection screen surface is smooth and tightly held together to prevent
any creases over time.
Typically, the home theater speakers are then placed either behind or at
the sides of the home theater projector screen. This will provides a better
movie watching experience comparable to your local cinemas.
If you decide to place the speakers behind the home theater screen, you
might want to consider using a transparent home theater screen fabric. The
main advantage is it allows the sound to pass through the transparent
fabric maintaining the acoustic sound of the home theater speakers.
2) Tripod Home Theater Projector Screens
These types of screen are portable and suitable for temporary meeting,
outdoor movie screening and conducting training. They can be transported
easily since they can be folded and slip inside a luggage for easy carrying.
It is cheaper than a standard home theater projector screen and is smaller
so it is not suitable for use if you want to watch movies.
3) Wall Mounted Retractable Home Theater Projector Screen
These types are installed on the wall or even to the ceiling. They can
allow the projector screen to be retracted when not watching. It’s
available in both manual and electronic versions and can be quite
expensive. Unless your home is short in space or you do not have a
dedicated home theater room, it is not necessary to have it.
They are probably other hybrid models of home theater projector screens available but these 3 are the most common and widely used at the moment.
