DARK GREY REAR PROJECTION FILM SETUP.
The lumens per sq/ft is different for each setup
Generally for daytime projection you will need about 350-800 lumens per sq/ft. Depending on lighting conditions in front of the screen and rear. We always suggest testing before final installation. For day time only install smaller screens, such as a 60" diag 16:9 or 29"x52"
Our Film products can be laminated to many surfaces. Glass, Plexiglass or Aryclic. Lexan or polycarbonate can be used also. When buying plastic sheets, purchase only top quality materials. Also some cheaper plastics can gas off over time and bubble film product. Dont be cheap when it comes to your substrates.
The best film used for daytime projection is our Dark grey film. This film allows just enough light through the film for maximum brightness. Our dark grey film is the perfect shade of grey to let through light and dark enough to combat outside lighting. We recommend a 60" 16:9 screen for most setups.

We generally suggest standard long throw projectors. These projectors shoot the light more directly at screen and create maximum brightness , during daytime hours. Do not use
short throw projectors for any daytime projection.
Night time projection can be done with very little light. We suggest 2500-4000 lumen projectors.
We have used as little as 300 lumens for a 100 inch rear projected screen. You can create large nightime screens with very little cost.
Short throw projectors can be used. You should only use these for indoor or nightime installations. You must get the lighting correct on both sides of screen.
The less light on both sides of the screen with enhance screen brightness.
