Motorized Screens vs Fixed-Frame Screens

The most demanding factor that everyone requires is to EXPERIENCE the content, no matter what. This factor allows every viewer to get into the visual aesthetic that eventually makes your eyes exhibiting to its very own universe – for every content like movies or series.

The projector screens play a crucial role in giving the demanding visual experience that you basically required and we, Lumina Projection Screens provide a wide range of products in order to give you an immersive experience.

But before that, it is important to know about these screens. There are two major projection screens that are quite popular and used in most places, that is, Motorized Projector Screens and Fixed-Frame Projector Screens.

Motorized Screens

These types of screens are mostly seen either as conference-room screens, and wall-mounted or ceiling-mounted screens that lower on the command, sometimes when the projector gets turned on. The projector screens roll up and down according to your availability to access the content.

They are mainly ceiling-mounted screens which are installed completely above a drop ceiling and it then can be controlled via a wall switch, a remote control, a room automation system or by connecting to a low-voltage trigger port on the projector. A trap door on the bottom of the enclosure hides the screen when it’s not in use. There are also cases where some portable floor-standing motorized screens are found, where they rise from the floor rather than dropping down. These are ideally used for staging applications.

They are equally good to do presentations and access videos, but there are mere possibilities of unfortunate events where the motorized screen gets stuck in between to roll down, or to roll upwards, and the cost charges of purchasing and repairing a motorized screen could be annoying for you. Apart from these aspects, motorized screens give a different experience in viewing the content.


Fixed-Frame Screens

The fixed-frame screens are mounted directly to wall space, much like a large flat panel. They are mostly found in movie theatres or cinema halls. The main advantage of fixed frame screens is lower weight comparatively than motorized screens, in other words, they can be easily mounted to any wall space.

If there is an opening behind the screen, they can be used for rear projection. Since the surface of these screens is perforated, the centre left and right channel speakers can be placed directly behind the screen. The perforations enable acoustic transparency without impacting the quality of image noticeably. Fixed-frame screens are extremely popular for the home theatre installations because of the ease in the process of installation.

The only disadvantage of these projection screens is some projectors won’t be fit for every wall space. In order to rectify this disadvantage, make sure to find a better one that brightly matches your wall space and environment. And that’s why Lumina Projection Screens are at your aid.

Lumina Projection Screens brings various options for home theatre screens that could easily befit your needs and wants. Our main aim is to deliver an enhanced and one-of-a-kind cinematic experience of magnificent visuals that enables you to easily enjoy the depth of your favourite content – like your favourite movies, series, and even sports, for every class and group of people.

The Bigger Picture: Basics to Projection Screens

‘It’s a mere white cloth’, you would say, but no, actually a projection screen is more than just that! It’s a sophisticated, technical fabric meant to provide the viewers with an immersive cinematic experience.

Thinking of getting a projector, anytime soon? Well then don’t forget the screen! No offense to televisions: TVs are simply awesome, but if you are game for an epic entertainment experience, then, by all means, you need a projector screen. No matter what your purpose is, the right choice of a projection screen can a world’s difference. And if you are confused about which one to settle for, its time we take you down the rabbit hole and introduce you to the basics of projection screens.

In a layman’s language, projectors are really a two-piece system. So there’s going to be a projector- the so-called attention-seeker and the lowly screen that actually lets you see the image. And while there are several things to consider before nailing down a perfect screen, it’s important to realise that the whole stuff revolves around three basic things.


Whether it is your favourite football game you are watching or a much-awaited blockbuster, there’s nothing more appealing than a massive screen. But catch your breath, before you really get excited about owning a screen SO big. There are certain factors that will influence what size screen you should go for. These include the size of your wall, your viewing distance and also your projector. With a scalable solution that suits rooms of any size and purpose, Lumina Projection Screens makes this decision easier than ever.

Aspect Ratio

This factor comes on number 2. An aspect ratio is the proportion of width and height of the image projected on the screen and is typically expressed in numbers like for example 4:3. Number 4 here is the width of the image and the second number 3 is the height. Hence, 4:3 would mean that for every four inches of image width, you would have 3 inches of height.

The aspect ratio on your projector screen has a lot to do with what you plan to watch and what is the purpose of your projection screen. It also becomes a helping factor while determining what screen to buy.

Screen Gain

Gain refers to the reflectivity measurement of your screen and the gain number is the light ratio that’s reflected from the screen in comparison to the light reflected from a standard whiteboard. Screens with a gain of 1.0 reflect the same amount of light as that from a board. As the gain number increases, the percentage of light reflection increases as well.

Gain is measured from the vantage point of the screen – from where it is at its brightest. Screen brightness starts to fall as one moves away from this point.

Whether you should select a screen with a higher gain or lower depends on your purpose. While high-gain is more recommended for cinema owners, for a  videophile with a home theatre, a low gain screen is a more sensible option providing a wider viewing angle, better contrasts and uniformity.

For screens that match your needs, Lumina Screens presents several suitable options. Lumina’s Projection Screens aim to deliver a  cinema-theatre like experience at the comfort of your homes. With a new product line for each category, from movie buffs to corporate offices and auditoriums, we have optimized our best-in-class surfaces for top-quality cinema-like viewing experiences.
