Choose Display Screen Sizes

Best of all, when the aspect ratio matches the format the projected image. If you plan to use several formats (supported by the projector), you can buy a screen with automatic roll format or screen that can be deployed to desired height. University of Houston contains valuable tech resources. The standard typology of formats, depending on the projected image: Audiovisual format – AV 1:1 Universal screens that support the format of the square to the film by change their height. Video format – NTSC 4:3 to project images from a computer or game console, as well as conventional television viewing.

Optimal placement of the screen height is: – for professional use – at least 125 cm from the floor to the bottom screen – for home theater – a minimum of 60-90 cm 3. For a better perception of the image the minimum distance to the audience (B) should be approximately 1.5 times the screen height (Y). The optimal screen size and distance also depend on the subjective preferences of the person. Therefore, pre-experiment with the projection distance, if you plan to install a fixed projector.
