Black border around your home theatre screen important

Every detail counts when it comes to installing a home theatre. For instance, the projection screen’s black border. Although it seems insignificant, it plays a crucial role in the quality of your image.

What is the purpose of the black border? It works by increasing the brightness of an image, first of all. By comparing the brightness of the image with the border, the brain is tricked into thinking that the image is brighter. There is a misconception that improvement is only perceived, so it may not be noticed. A home theater screen without a black border looks washed out, something a viewer will not appreciate.

Furthermore, the black border absorbs excessive light on the image’s edge. This compensates for the projector’s flaws, giving the image a more uniform tone overall.

In contrast to the projector picture’s sharp edges, the black border also softens the edge of the image slightly. A pleasant and immersive viewing experience is produced by the border, which also reduces the visibility of the edges.

The most effective material for a black border that equally absorbs light and softens the edges is fabric. The most commonly used fabric is black velvet.

Some projector screens include a metal border, which defeats the goal of the exercise by reflecting light rather than absorbing it. You may also choose a tape that can be put to the border if a cloth is not your thing.

Whatever material you select, make sure it is even and covers all of the screen’s edges. If you try to paint the border, you risk destroying the pricey screen.
