Screen Innovations' Projection Screen Options Give Great Picture

Screen Innovations makes several, cutting edge screen materials that offer superb image quality. Our HD screens, including the Lunar gray and Solar white screens, combine super-fine texturing with smart light reflection to give you great results. The product we're most excited about, though, is our new Black Diamond screen material. Here's why.

The Black Diamond Projection Screen

The Black Diamond does two things remarkably well. The first is to reduce the amount of ambient light in a room. When you've got the lights turned down low for home movie viewing, you'll still get plenty of ambient light. This is caused by the light from the projector being reflected off the screen and scattered throughout the room. That light, in turn, bounces off the walls and ceiling and comes back at the screen, which reduces the sharpness of the image. This type of light scatter is unavoidable with a white or gray screen, but not with a Black Diamond screen. The Black Diamond screen "absorbs" ambient light, instead only reflecting light back toward the source: the projector. This results in a darker room and a better quality image. The other aspect of the Black Diamond that makes it special is that other ambient light sources do not affect the image quality nearly as much as they would with a white or gray screen. This is due, again, to the screen's ability to absorb light that isn't being directly aimed at the screen from a front angle position. The image quality of the Black Diamond screen, even in a room full of uncurtained windows, is comparable to that of an HD television in the same light conditions. We should mention that there is no glare like with glass or lexon.

Portable Projection Screens

Portable Projection Screens Are a Cost-Effective Solution

For customers who only need a projection screen at times, or who need to be able to do presentations at a variety of locations, which may or may not have their own projection screens, Screen Innovations' portable projection screens are a good choice. With a portable screen, you can set it up only when you need it, leaving your office or home walls free for other displays or devices. The Sensation portable manual projection screen is also a great choice for schools. You can purchase only a few screens that can be moved from classroom to classroom as needed, instead of having a screen installed in every room. The portability of our screens makes it easy to share resources and save money. Sensation series manual screens are a breeze to set up. They only require one operator, and the whole process takes less than one minute. Portables are available in pull-up and pull-down models in widescreen and standard formats. You can get a screen as small as 60 inches (diagonal measurement) or as large as 117 inches. Whichever aspect ratio or size you choose, the screens are easy to transport and are as easy to take down as they are to set up.

Movie Screens

How Do You Know Which Movie Screens to Consider?

If you don't know exactly where to start looking, Screen Innovations designed three tools to help you pick the right screen for your home theater or conference room.

The Right Tools to Pick the Right Movie Screens

With our Screen Wizard, tell us the make and model of your projector, and what you use it for, and we can suggest the gain??, size, and placement of the screen that's best for your needs. The Screen Wizard can tell you which screen material is best for your setup. You just have to input the aspect ratio you're looking for, the brightness of the room that it will be used in, the general size you're looking for, and some basic details about your projector. With that information, we can tell you which of our screen materials, and therefore, which screen material, is right for you. The Screen Calculator lets you figure out the price of a custom screen. You start by telling us what type of screen you want (fixed, motorized, manual) and the product line. Next, tell us what size you want, the aspect ratio, and the screen material you like. Finally, you can customize the accessories, such as the stand, whether you want a curved or flat screen, and the decorator accents you want included. With the information you've provided, we'll return a price quote to you on your custom screen. There are more custom options available on some of our screens, including the amount of black drop built into the screen. If you would like more information on those options, and how they'll affect the price, you can call us at +1 512-832-6939 or send an email with more questions to We can also be reached through our secure web form

Video Screens

Video Screens in Lighted Environments

If you're looking for a video display for an environment that can't be entirely darkened, then a projector coupled with a Black Diamond screen is a great choice for your home or business.

Black Diamond Video Screens Are Different

The dark gray color of the Black Diamond screens may seem odd at first, but the advantages are obvious when seen in action. The reflective nature of the Black Diamond is different than white or gray screens. The contrast is greater. The blacks are darker. The most obvious difference, though, is the way that the Black Diamond screens seem to absorb light, instead of bouncing it around the room. This is an important difference. When you project an image on a white or gray screen, the light from the projector bounces off the screen. This light bounces off the walls and ceiling of the room and comes back to the screen, which increases the ambient light in the room and can dull the image on the screen. Black Diamond screens only reflect light aimed directly at the screen, and only reflect that light back at the source. This allows you to use a Black Diamond screen in situations where standard projector screens are unwatchable. A Black Diamond screen looks just like a HD television display when not in use. When in use, the picture quality is comparable to an HD television in lighted rooms. This makes a Black Diamond screen a viable alternative to an HD television display. Projector screens are available in sizes much larger than HD televisions and can better withstand the elements, making them feasible for outdoor use. You can read the latest reviews of our Black Diamond screens in our Reviews archive. If you have any questions, or want to place an order, you can call us at +1 512-832-6939.

Tripod Screens

An Alternative to Tripod Screens For Classroom Use

Schools often have to do safety or educational video presentations, but they don't have to do them every day. A portable screen can be a good investment for schools for the days when video presentations are necessary. The screen can be folded up and moved from classroom to classroom as needed, so a small number of screens can be used for the whole school. As the technology used by school children advances, more students will want or need to do multimedia projects, demonstrations, or presentations. Having a portable screen and projector available for students to use with their laptops can make classroom assignments more dynamic. Teachers can also use the setup to do lectures with slides, text outlines, or even short video clips.

Use Screen Innovations' Manual Screens Instead of Tripod Screens

Screen Innovations makes two types of portable screens that are competitively priced with tripod screens. Our pull-up and pull-down screens are available in 16:9 widescreen and 4:3 standard format in a range of sizes. The screens are made with matte white 1.0 gain material that makes them compatible with most projectors, slide, video, or film. Our screens are easy to set up and take down. In less than one minute, you can have the screen set up and ready for use. The stand makes them more stable than tripod screens and our pull-up screens lock into place to ensure they don't accidentally fold up when in use. We're happy to tell you more about our portable screens, or any of our top-of-the-line motorized and fixed screens. There are several ways to contact us. You can use our web form to send us questions or comments. We'll respond via email or phone, depending on your preference. You can also email us with questions or orders at We can also be reached by telephone during business hours. Our number is +1 512-832-6939.

Portable Screen

A Portable Screen is a Cost Effective Solution

A portable screen is a great choice for the person who wants to be able to entertain friends and family on occasion, but who doesn't want to build a home theater, for reasons of cost, or space, or simply because they aren't interested.

Liven Up Your Gathering with a Portable Screen

As a special summer activity, a portable screen can be set up in the back yard for an impromptu movie night. Watching a film out under the stars can add an exciting new dimension to a normal family activity. It's also a good way to entertain guests at an outdoor gathering, like a barbeque or pool party. Have a movie running, or music videos, or even set up a game console with your projector and screen for some big screen video game action. If you like to share your vacation photos with friends and family, but don't like the idea of huddling around the computer monitor, or laptop screen, using a multimedia projector with your computer and a portable screen can give everyone the elbow room they need while still enjoying the pictorial entertainment together. It's also a good way to show home movies to a fairly large gathering of people. For this type of use, installing a permanent screen is unnecessary and improvising with a blank wall won't give you the kind of picture quality you could get at a very good cost with a real portable screen. At Screen Innovations, we manufacture portable screens in pull-up and pull-down varieties. Our screens are made from high quality materials, including strong aluminum frames and matte white screen material designed to be compatible with the widest range of projectors. You can place an order by calling +1 512-832-6939 or sending an email to You can also contact us through our web form
