    Owl screens come with a black velvet screen or a painted white screen. I know nothing about projectors and wondered if one was better than the other.
    Did'nt think it was that confusing!

    buy a black velvet screen mate, unless you crave deep blacks from your PJ:D :D

    I think that you are referring to the border than surrounds the standard white material, yes?? :lesson:

    Nope, I think he is referring to the actual screen casing. i.e. the long cigar shaped tube that holds the rolled up material and is fixed to the wall or ceiling.

    I would say, if you are fixing in a dedicated theatre then most likely the black velvet covered one. If in a day-to-day room with coving, ceiling, etc in white then go for the white version. Generally determined by the environment in which it will be fitted.
