VistaCurve (VC) projection screens have been designed to provide a perfect match to images projected through a panamorphic lens. Achieving ideal cinematic projection is only found using the CinemaScope aspect ratio, the format adopted for the production of most movies. Using widescreen imaging with exacting screen size ratios and a curved screen bring a more lifelike space to the viewer and enhances the total experience. VC screen sizes range from 80” to 160” wide, and are available for around $5,800.
In review of the sound quality, Enlightor 4K acoustic transparency differs from any other ATscreen fabric. EN4K provides a uniform attenuation of -2.5 dB over the whole frequency spectrum, allowing one to simply readjust volume level on the front channels without any type of EQ (equalization). Acoustic absorption is evenly spread over 4 octaves and there are no minimum speaker distances required. With no reflection on the rear of the fabric itself, no distortion is created in the sound distribution.
TFOT has recently covered the technology developed in production of a glass rear projection screen, the holographic HDTV screen. TFOT has also covered other stories related to specialty and high-tech fabrics in pieces such as Water Repellent Fabric, Killer Kevlar, and PAN in a T-Shirt.
