If you have a projector and you function it almost regularly, then you should consider a dedicated fixed frame projection screen that could match with it.
Yes, you can project your movies, TV shows, slides, or images directly on your wall, but this approach is unfavorable to the overall image quality you will receive.
Even if you have a wall that is absolutely clean and has recently been repainted, it is still going to hold some minor flaws that hardly matter in everyday life but are surely going to stand out in your projected image. If you go ahead with using your projector without a good quality projection screen, you are most likely missing out on the outcome of an impressive machine that can deliver you much more than you’re already experiencing.
Through this blog post, we will explain to you about fixed frame projection screens, their advantages, features you should look for, and more. Let’s go!
Fixed Frame projection screens
Fixed Frame projection screens are displays that are mounted straight to the wall space just like a picture frame placed on the included brackets. Fixed frame screens go with any situation where a permanent wall-mounted solution is required like auditoriums, conference rooms, corporate offices, institutions, or worship places.
The screens usually need more assembly than other display types. They can be easily wall-mounted and need less installation and no electrical connectivity. Fixed Frame projection screens come in various different sizes.
Also, frames of the projection screen play a major role as they safeguard the screens and make it easier to display the content. The Premium Aluminum frames have a velvet finish that gives the sheer look and sturdiness to the screens. We at Lumina provide three profile types of velvet frames that are capable of giving a solution to all different projects. We recently included the zero-edge frame.
Fixed frame screens have a lower weight compared to the motorized retractable screens, for example, they can be mounted to virtually any wall. They are easily transportable which leads to a reduction in shipping expenses.
The projection screens come with a perforated screen surface, this special fabric of the projection screen enables the usage of speakers behind the screen. It enhances the overall sound quality of the home theatre setup.
The perforation in the screen allows acoustical transparency without affecting picture quality noticeably. The ease of installation and customization with the fixed frame displays makes it a popular choice for home theatre installations.
Fixed Frame screen features you should look in
- Screen fabric: According to the setup and the room, the selection of the screen fabric may differ. You can choose from diverse display options like acoustically transparent or non-acoustically transparent, high gain or unity gain, Ambient Light Rejecting fabric, HDR fabrics, 4K compatible fabrics, 16K compatible fabrics and more.
- Frame: Aluminium is by far the most suitable material used in creating the frame of the fixed frame projection screen. It is lightweight and durable. The spring affix in the frame makes the screen tight and wrinkleless.
- 3D/4k support: Fixed Frame projection screen comes with 3D and 4K support. These features offer a big-screen experience to your home cinema. Lumina offers projection screens with 4K and 16k support.
The installation part
When the size is decided, then the installation or assembling part of the fixed frame projection screen is a piece of cake. The screen is packed with installing hardware like drywall anchors, sliding wall brackets, screws, setup manual, and some other essential paraphernalia.
Assembling the screen is simple because of the tensed rod and spring system, but if you still can’t figure out the setup, then you may go for the installation service.
