Which Screen - Part Two

2) Select the appropriate format for your projection application.

Common formats are as follows:

Common Applications Aspect Ratio (Width & Height)
NTSC Video (4:3) 1.33:1
PAL Video (4:3) 1.33:1
Wide Format (16:10) 1.60:1
HDTV Video (16:9) 1.78:1
Letterbox Video 1.85:1
Cinemascope 2.35:1


3) Choose the screen surface that best suits your projection and viewing requirements. For your convenience, links for front and rear surfaces can be found at the top of this page. If the screen will be used for multiple projection methods, choose the screen surface that meets the requirements of the lesser performing projection method.

4) Pick the type of screen that best suits your particular needs. For example, choose from front projection screens in either portable, wall or ceiling mounted models in either manual or electric versions or rear projection screens.

Generally, if your projection application is permanent, then wall and ceiling screens are your best choice. If, however, you find your needs require moving the screen to different locations then a portable screen is a better alternative.
