Is it possible to get small samples of screen material for cheap? I´m really interrested to know how they grey and silver(vutec) looks compaired to matt white.

I have a 1.0 white projecta(Da-Lite) screen with my 5700, but am curious to see how other stuff looks. There is of course nothing of this available here in Iceland.

I´m very interrested in the Vutec(although it would look bad with my 5700 - maybe better for a Sim). Tryg over at avsforum seems to think it´s the greatest thing since sliced cheese, but Gordon convergent thinks it´s nasty.... interresting.

Do Vutec have a distributor in Iceland?

If they don't I'll see if i can get hold of a sample for you. I currently have some Vutec GreyDove (0.95 grey) and BriteWhite (1.3) fabrics samples, but SilverStar is harder to get. Also have a couple of fabric books, but I'm not sure if these are available.

To the best of my knowledge there are no vutec dealers here in Iceland, but I´m not sure. And even if there was(which I doubt very much) they probably wouldnt have any home theater stuff. All the screen dealers that I have been to here only have the bright business projector stuff... my projecta permascreen deluxe had to be specially ordered and was the first one here.

I´m really interrested in the silverstar. Whats your opinion of it - if you try to be as unbiased as you can... Gordon doesn´t like it at all.

Personally I think the SilverStar is very good for using when you can't properly blackout your room, or want to have a screen in exhibition area etc. I wouldn't run one in a properly light controlled room, as it's just too bright. On the same note I wouldn't use a grey screen either for its 'darkening' properties.

I'll see what I can find for you. I'm due a large sample of Firehawk and BriteWhite to do some comparision tests in the next few weeks.

Keyser,

I think you are slightly misquoting me....

I do not think that Silverstar is a good solution if you have a light controlled room. if you want to do presentations in a lit room with a bright to very bright projector and ultimate image quality is not your objective then it's good.....

Seeing a sample would prove useful for you. Getting an actual dem in your own viewing environment would be ideal but I guess impossible....

Gordon,

Sorry about that.

Is a matte white as good as it get´s in a rather well light controlled room. I guess I´m just hoping that there´s some magic material that will make tha blacks blacker(the black from the IF 5700 are grey at best to me) and make the image brighter(is an image ever too bright?)

Aren´t the Sims rather dim with the 120w bulbs.. from the feedback on avsforum they are saying that they are as bright as 200w bulbed PJ. Not that I don´t believe them, but I find it a strange coincidence then that some review have recorded very low Lum´s on the Sims, sim doesn´t state them on their site, and they aren´t using a 7 segment colour wheel.

Keyser: if you want to email me your address to [email protected] then I'll send you some samples. I haven't got any SilverStar available, but I'll see if i can get some in the future.
