Projector central claims that shirwin williams pro classic extra white to be a 1.1 gain painted screen. Has this ever been confirmed on this forum?

Thanks

No, and we are woefully behind on gain testing. Mech is the only one of us that can do it and he is busier than a ditch digger using a teaspoon.

If anyone has a sample, I'd take it. Getting an on-axis gain reading isn't too bad. It's setting everything up to get the full gain readings that is a royal pain.
I'll paint one and send it to you by mail, if you can just pm me with the address, and a little info on how you want me to paint it. It's amazing to get all this knowledge base for free, I'll do it with pleasure.

I can also send my sample of Sherwin Williams. I'm already sending another sample and the SW is already painted...

Nak what other paint are you sending in for testing, if you don't mind me asking. Also which screen setup are you using? Colour, size, and projector.

Thanks

Nak I just realized that you were the host of My glidden 450 diamond white. Great setup that exactly what I want for my next screen projector combo. I"m thinking of doing 135" 16/9 screen. The Epson 5020 should end up being my next projector.

Congrats on a great setup, and those pictures were beautiful, I know those sceens pretty well, and they looked great. Is your screen 16/9 and if so are you using any masking?

Thanks

Hey Tank, thanks!

No masking yet, that'll come after I finish the remodel of the theater/entertainment room.

I'm sending Mech my Sample of Carada Brilliant White screen material. Trying to figure out some inconsistencies.
