Projection Screens

Movies continue to provide an exciting way to relax and escape into a world of entertainment. While bigger screens and amazing sound systems have continued to bring patrons into local cinemas, advances in video technology have also kept many viewers at home. In decades past, projection screens and reels of 8mm film afforded people this luxury; but noisy projectors and the expense of acquiring films frequently made it cost prohibitive. Modern projectors, like those sold at Sears, have refined this classic experience with more sophisticated, yet easy-to-connect equipment. Pull-down screens, surround sound stereos and affordable DVD movies are now making home theaters more popular than ever.

Give everyone the best seat in the house with projection screens from Sears

The big screen movie experience has been a hit since the days of nickelodeons back in the early 20th century. While die-hard fans still flock to massive multiplexes, more and more people have turned to technology to enjoy that same entertaining, social event in their own homes. Once, the only way to see films at home were with pull-down screens and projectors; today, we have a variety of TVs that can reproduce that big screen experience. Nonetheless, projection screens are making a significant comeback.

Apart from the materials they are constructed from, today's pull-down projection screens are essentially the same as they were decades ago. Some pull down manually, while others are driven by automatic motors. What have changed are the projectors themselves. The move toward digital technology is rapidly replacing film projectors and their clumsy celluloid reels. Digital projectors can now be easily connected with DVD players or televisions to display large images well beyond the capability of the average screen TV. A good pair of component video cables is usually all it takes for major sporting events and blockbuster films to go from player to projector to screen

As entertainment enthusiasts have evolved their quest for the ultimate home movie experience, they've shifted from film projectors to an assortment of big screen TVs. Flat screen LCD, LED and plasma models are very popular, but certain aficionados have also lauded the merits of large, rear projection TVs for their light and color contrast capabilities. These self-contained units rely on a series of color projectors to produce the images that are reflected backward onto a screen.

Pull-down screens, however, are not exclusively used for entertainment purposes. Frequently, businesses will display presentations via computers that are attached to some sort of digital light projector. A simple TV DVI cable is usually all that's needed to effectively turn the screen into a giant monitor. Such a strong connection is even capable of showing high-definition images. Unlike coaxial cables, these connectors rely on a series of pins at each end to transfer data.

The phenomenon of light-sourced visual displays has been around for more than a century. While film projectors are in the process of evolving to digital displays, the need for high-quality projection screens remains. Simply showing a picture on a wall is insufficient. Subtle textures from paint, as well as shading and light reflectiveness, can all affect the quality of the end result. Thus, a screen becomes a valuable investment for maximizing the presentation. Increased attention to what materials compose a screen, as well as its size, ability to handle light and viewing angle, all come into play in producing a top notch image onscreen. Whether your preference is for a traditional pull-down model, something electric or even a standalone version, Sears offers you plenty of options to get the most from your projector.
