Black velvet or white painted? Which would be the best option for an Owl screen?

What do you mean, and what do you want to know ??
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
I think that you are referring to the border than surrounds the standard white material, yes??
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.
OK that makes sense.
Thanks for clearing up my confusion. I thought it referred to the actual screen.
