Re: HowTo Choose Colours for a Theatre

On the "barrier" -- do you think 6" of pure flat black paint all around the screen (between it and the trim) will be sufficient? Or is velvet the preferred method?

I would use Fidelio velvet..It will absorb all light reflections..paint won't.. and you don't want any light bounce near the screen..

Mpj,

It is very hard to get the display to be perfect projection onto the exact dimensions of the white screen. You will want to bleed over slightly onto the border. That's why the velvet is used so you don't see it and it blocks light reflection well.

Re: HowTo Choose Colours for a Theatre

It's always a good idea to learn a little bit of the philosophy behind how colors work with each other and why before choosing colors for anything. We might know that we like two colors together, but knowing why we like those colors together will make things make much more sense.

And here's a great article specifically about choosing paint with a color wheel.

Re: HowTo Choose Colours for a Theatre

We have used the Sound Channels carpeting from Acoustics First, and found that the black is remarkably effective at sucking up light in a room...and it's a nice looking product. For acoustics it's best used layered over Homasote, instead of placed directly on dryway. http://www.acousticsfirst.com/sound-...l-covering.htm
