ALR Screen review coming soon
The long-awaited Ambient Light Rejection screen review is in its final stages. We are doing some fact checking with vendors, but at this point I expect the review to be posted later next week.
Included in the ALR screen review are the following eleven products:
- Da-Lite Parallax 0.8
- DNP Supernova
- Draper TecVision MS1000X
- Elite DarkStar
- Elite PolarStar
- Elite EPV DarkStar 9
- Microlite Black Crystal 1.2
- Screen Innovations Black Diamond 1.4
- Screen Innovations Zero Edge Slate 1.2
- Seymour Matinee Black
- Stewart Firehawk G4
This study will look at each screen's relative contrast and black levels in different ambient light conditions as well their differences in viewing angles. It will also offer a comparative evaluation of their visible texture artifacts and picture sharpness/clarity.
It is remarkable how different these screens are from one another, and how tailored they are to performing their best in a specific set of circumstances. Hopefully this review will help you identify which of these products might work the best in your room and ambient light environment.
