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.

BETTER THAN BOX SEATS: VIDEO PROJECTOR SYSTEMS

March provides more reasons to gather around the TV with your family, friends and neighbors.   However, if you want to really go mad with your screen size and overall hoops experience, maybe it is time to think beyond the television.  The technology behind video projector systems has improved by leaps and bounds.  The systems at Classic Stereo provide better quality than ever before and have never been more affordable.

Imagine your TV screen being twice as big.  A video projector system would probably at least double your screen size and systems can go as big as 300 inches.  It is like having your own suite at the game without the driving, parking or the crowds.

Unless you want the crowds, because once your friends and family see your home theater system, viewing parties are likely going to be at your home indefinitely.

Once you start watching games on a projection screen, you cannot imagine any other way to enjoy the experience.

We encourage you to stop by our showroom to try it out for yourself.  Sometimes seeing, hearing and feeling is believing.

Epson 6040ub video projector

Here are two of the many products we offer that won’t break the bank:

The Epson 6040ub uses a pixel shift technology, to attain very high resolution. The technology creates a full 4k picture at a moderate viewing distance.  It has 2500 ANSI lumens for a very bright picture with ambient room light. The 6040ub comes with a mounting bracket, extra lamp, cable cover, and a 3 year warranty.

The Sony VPL-HW65ES is a great projector for a room that can stay relatively dark.  The 1080p projector offers 1800 ANSI lumens.Sony VPL-HW65ES video projector

Both projectors provide outstanding optics for better focus and fine detail.

Visit our showroom to learn more about these options and how to pair it with an equally immersive sound experience.  We can make watching your favorite teams even more exciting, or heartbreaking, depending on how they fare.
