Seymour CenterStage UF

I've been looking into getting an AT screen for awhile now, and I see that quite a few companies are coming out with "4k" screens, that have smaller perforations or tighter weaves. I was just wondering if anyone has tried the Seymour UF screen? or tried a sample of it?

How is the brightness compared to the XD? Is the -2.2db drop going to require more audio treatments to the front wall behind the screen and speakers?

I originally had them send me UF, and XD samples and i picked the XD... As I recall the XD screen looked like it wasn't as stretchable and I think it looked a little better to me. Sorry, but it has been over 6 months since I compared the 2. I am very happy with the XD screen material. The XD is also a 4k screen as far as I know.

Re: Seymour CenterStage UF

Ok, I'm worried about having a moire pattern, or losing detail if I eventually go with a 4k projector. Has anyone seen comparison of perforated/weave screen types? Each manufacturer says that their method is the best but I didn't know what the benefits or drawbacks are of one vs the other.

Re: Seymour CenterStage UF

I can't say anything about 4k, but I can tell you I have no Moire problem at all.

Re: Seymour CenterStage UF

When i made my screen, I also got samples of the XD and 4K material..
I personally preferred the XD over the 4K..The XD looked brighter to me and sitting at 9'6" from the screen, I don't have any moire problems..
I think the 4K would work well if you have a high lumen projector..

Re: Seymour CenterStage UF

How manys lumens is your projector rated at? I figure I'll probably end up with a projector in the 2000 to 2500 range. Also do you have a backing on your screen? I'm not sure what the benefit of a screen backing is.

Re: Seymour CenterStage UF

My Mits. projector is rated at 1300 lumens..I'm projecting from 10' onto a 106" 2.39:1 screen.
I don't use any backing..I don't see any point to it if your front wall is covered with black acoustic insulation..
A 2000 - 2500 lumen projector is very bright, but it's the fL.value at the screen that will determine how bright the image will be..That will depend on what size screen you're planning to use..

Re: Seymour CenterStage UF

ok that sounds good, I'm looking at getting an Epson Pro 6030UB which is rated at 2400 lumens, but I'm not sure if that's an accurate measurement or not. I'll have to find a good fL calculator and play around with my theater design to see if its going to work.
If a projector is too bright, is there usually an adjustment to lower the bulb brightness?

There is usually an ECO mode in my experience.

When you've decided on your screen size and aspect ratio, this calculator will give you an indication of the fL...http://www.projectorcentral.com/Epso...calculator.htm
