AMBIENT LIGHT REJECTION: A NEW PROJECTOR ERA

Ambient Light Rejection Screen Innovations

As technology changes the world, you would be amazed at how it has changed the world of video projection. Get rid of the ideas that projection screens can only stay in one place and only work in the dark. Let Classic Stereo by Bekins show you how a screen with high ambient light rejection can change your life.

WHAT IS AMBIENT LIGHT REJECTION?

Screens with high levels of ambient light rejection allow you to have lights in the room and still clearly see the image on the screen.

In a very basic sense, the screen primarily accepts only the light coming from your projector.

Imagine a quality picture on the projection screen in your living room or outdoors. A screen that rejects up to 90 percent of ambient light can make that happen.

Too hard to believe? Click on the video below for a demonstration from Screen Innovations.

Screens with high ambient light rejection can also help your dedicated, dark home theater. The old projector screen wants to reflect as much light as possible. That means the colors of your walls and other factors in the room can affect the colors on your screen.

WHY IT MATTERS

It’s about screen size and losing yourself in the video. You will have a difficult time finding a 120 inch television. When you do, it will cost you a pretty penny.

Projection screens often start at 120 inches. We can even show you a projection screen that will grow or shrink depending on the size of your video.

TV to Projector Comparison
This comparison shows that jumping to a projection screen makes a big difference in your screen size.
  • Watching the game on TV? It transforms into a 16 x 9 frame.
  • Watching your favorite movie? No more black lines at the top and bottom of your screen. The projection screen will adapt to the correct size.

We dare you to find a TV that changes size!

A NEW QUALITY OF PORTABLE SCREENS

Let our experts show you a zero-edge screen that rolls into a cassette fewer than three inches tall. The motor that rolls it up and rolls it out runs for two years on a single charge.

This model rejects up to 65 percent of all ambient light.
