screen for a Optoma EzPro745



Hello. I am looking for some assistance on a screen for this projector. I am mainly looking for something that is pull down and will not wrinkle. The native rez is 4:3 but it will also do 16:9 and 5:4. The projector will be around 16 feet from the wall on a shelf. This is not a basement room so there will be some external light during the day. I am limited on the brands I can purchase however. I place the order through my work vendor witch happens to be CDW.COM. They have these brands

• Dalite
• Bretford
• Mitsubishi Digital Electronics
• Draper
• Quartet
• Epson
• InFocus
• Chief Manufacturing
• NEC Visual Systems
• Proxima
• Plus Corporation

I was also torn as if I should go with a High contrast grey or high power screen. Da-lite also has something called Video Spectra 1.5 that is 35 degree viewing angle with a gain of 1.5.

Thanks for any help you can give. Here are the specs of this Optoma.
