...and you can thank your good friend and fellow AVS'er PeterJK. I've been actively pursuing advanced DIY projects "On Forum" for just over 2 years now, and the end results have been somewhat gratifying. Early on, I was a "High Contrast" advocate, utilizing Gray-based applications with affordable but 'contrast challanged' LCD PJs (PLV-70, Z1, Panny 300, etc) I quickly grew tired of the dull, clipped, and crushed imagery, and elevated my science to duplicating and improving on the basic idea behind Goo, after having tried the stuff on a X1 installation and a 6' x 8' 4:3 "Painted on the Wall" screen. Trouble was, I barely had enought to effect that application, and the price just stuck in my craw something awful. Good stuff it seems, but so is Beluga, but I don't spend for that either. Sooooo, after mulling it over for a while, off I went to Home Depot, and multi-purpose Home Improvement store here in the States, and by mixing three seperate ingredients together, I not only manged to clone GOO, I went it one or two steps better. I exhibited a 110" "painted Wall" screen,at a local Home Show, and the general consensus was that everybody thought it was a 9' diagonal Plasma TV. Yeah, I know..., that's silly, but the fact was, unless you looked up and noticed the PJ (...a IF 7200 Clone OEM'ed to Toshiba) it was easy to assume such. But by posting such comments, I quickly started quite the controversy, and acquired some vehemently expressed 'opinions' from both Plasma owners, and PJ/Screen owners alike. A little background: I have 26 Invisible Stereo Dealers (I last "showed' in the UK at Cedia 97-London) in the US, and several "Furrin" Dealers from Canada to New Zealand. It was / is in my best interest, and thiers, for thier Factory Rep to come up with a Killer Proj. / Screen application that was both afforadable and performed far in excess of the cost involved. The paint mix I concocted did exactly that. Some enlightened AVS'er named the sludge after my "Handle" MississippiMud This mix does the following: A. Exhibit intense but equal reflection tendencies, that result in "NO" viewing cone "at all" B. Delivers "Spot On" color, with absolutely no shifting. C. Masks SDE and other Video noise and artifacts, smoothing any image significantly enough to effectively eliminate such terrors from any viewing experience that takes place at least 1:1 viewing distance from the screen. Just the above would be sufficent for one to set back and collect the lucre, but not in this case, for this formula was created by me for, and is being used by, the DIY genre EVERYWHERE. But since one of my first advanced DIY projects was the use of a faux Silver Metallic (SM) base covered with MMud just enough that the SM's reflectivity and Gray-based contrast attributes could contibute to the end image, and that application was significantly better than MMud alone, the wheels turned, a gear clanked into place, and in conjunction with my Partner in this Crime, CMRA, Light Fusion was born. Light Fusion: i.e. The use of a .112mm thick Plastic Mirror of appreciable size that is then spray coated with MMud Mix just to the point where the Mirror's reflectivity and Gray hue dissappears. Dissappears, but is not forgotten or left to lie fallow. Just as a window pane painted white for privacy still lets the intense light of the Sun shine through, the intense beam of light from a 1000 lumen+ PJ not only paints an initial image upon the Top coat of MMud, the light that escapes through the rear then reflects back the .112 distance and "Re-Fuses" with the initial image. Mirrors always reflect light darker than received, and hence is the original reason for the concept; to enhance blacks levels and overall contrast, without reducing on-screen luminosity or crushing whites & colors. Well my friends, it did that, and so very much more. A. Colors became more intensely saturated but also more evenly presented due to addional contrast elements. 3-D ism became a reality! B. Light distibution became almost perfect across the screen's surface. The .118 gap that the light was scattering about in also became much like a neon tube, resulting in an image that resembles nothing if not a Backlit 35 mm Slide. Also, the impossible occured. The perfect viewing cone of MMud was topped by LF. Now, the image also looked virtually perfect at any viewable angle. Surreallistically so. C. Now...., there absolutely NO trace of SDE or Artifacts of any type when viewing HD sources, even at 110" + and when viewed from less than 1/3rd a meter away. And non-HD sources looked smooth as well, from only 1 meter back from the screen. All this might be a little hard to swallow, but what with all the documentation and the fabulous Screen shots that exist of every imaginable source material, the proof in not only in the Pudding, it's in the can. And still, even with such MFG Screen Industry shaking results, Light Fusion as well is and was ment to be my gift to DIY'ers everywhere. For 27 years I've made my living creating unique and afforable sound systems with Audio Transducers. (Sound Bug...., Bah! Just a Toy.) Invisible Stereo as it were. All my efforts "on Forum" are dedicated and perserved for the spirt of DIY'ism. I feel the need to give back, so there lies my motive, pure and simple. So......, you'll never have to worry about Light Fusion getting gobbled up by some MFG and sold for 2000 pounds just because it makes ANY decent PJ, LCD or DLP, D-ila, or even CRTs deliver images so stunning, it defys description. Still, I hope I did a pretty good job. heres a taste........ 110" diagonal Light Fusion Mirror Screen 1000 Lumen DLP PJ w/1700:1 CR HD-2 Chip (Studio Experience 50-HD) Zenith DVD (...a under $200.00 cheapo no less!) Component Out but NOT using 480p..., only the upconversion provided within the PJ itself. Ok.....I'll stop. These are just a taste. If this thread shows the response I think it should, will, you all will not find yourself waiting for more info and instructions. I've already found paints avalable in the UK that should work just fine. All I have to do is go back and search through abou 150 pages of posts over three threads to find the photo of the can's lables. That's all. But for my British DIY Bretheren, can any effort truly be too much? I think not. MississippiMan PS, Yell if All Ya All want to see more Screen shots. No Nikon or Canon is my Digi-Cam. Just a 4.2 MP Toshiba M-81. 3 years old. I set it on Auto, and upload the images directly onto my server, who automatically resizes them. What you see is what the camera saw, and captured.
