Rear Projection Material

Apart from Stewart Filmscreen's Aeroview 70, does anyone here have any other recommendations?

In particular, has anyone tried the Gerriet International's Opera Creamy White (a low gain rear/front material) with soft-edge blended projection? My objective is to minimize hot-spotting especially since the projection distance given to me (permanent room already built!) is only 11' from lens to screen surface.

Thanks in advance,
Thomas Leong

Thomas,

We just used the Gerrets Opera Creamy White for a blended raster on Frobisher, an opera we designed in Calgary in January. We were using blended Christie S9 DLP projectors. We were also front projecting with another S9 using a Catalyst Orbital Head. The screen material performed well. We were pleased. We've been habitual users of Stewart for a while.

Best,

Bob Bonniol

Bob,

Thanks very much for the firsthand feedback. Most valuable assessment. Stewart's local rep gave me a quote and it's, um...skyhigh...more expensive than the Stumpfl quote, though I must say, Stewart's swears there are no visible seams up to a very large size for their material.

BTW, did the Gerriet's have any visible joining seam? If yes, how apparent or annoying was it?

Regarding seems, the thing is, we had a wide variety of smaller projection surfaces, as opposed to one full stage stretch. We did have one screen that was at least 21' across, and it had no visible seem. Stewart is right about not seeing it though. We had a 50' by 80' Stewart black RP for an opera once, and it had absolutely no visible seems. It was gorgeous.

Thanks again, Bob. I'm presently waiting for a quote from Gerriet.
