For Blockbuster Cinematic Sound and Uncompromising
With below 1dB attenuation from 20Hz to 16kHz, these screens are practically completely transparent to sound - yet completely solid and opaque to the eye, just like traditional matte white screens. So you can place speakers and even subwoofers behind the screen just like in commercial cinemas and have a totally cinematic audio and visual experience.
No Holes or Moire in Your Image
Unlike other acoustically transparent projector screens, which are visibly perforated, affecting viewing quality at close distances, these screens have a uniform weave which is loose enough to let sound through yet tight enough to reflect light at a uniform 1.1 gain factor for resolutions up to 4K.
Fixed Frame & 16:9 Aspect Ratio
This is what we call a 'fixed frame' screen. Essentially, it's like a big picture frame. It's a great option for people who have a dedicated space for their projector and don't need to the screen to pack away when it's not in use. The aspect ratio of this screen is 16:9, which means it's the same shape as most modern TV screens. This is a versatile ratio, making it the most popular choice for people who want to use their projector for a variety of content (eg: television, movies, video games etc).
Aircraft-grade Trinity aluminium frame
Each frame edge of the screen is forged as a single piece with aircraft-grade aluminium--they have no weak points to be broken or deformed under strain. (Each lengthwise edge comes in 2 pieces for easy and reliable transportation.) Assembled, it is further reinforced by two vertical crossbars behind the screen, spaced out from the middle. These efforts ensure that
1. The parts arrive at your doorstep in pristine condition;
2. The projection surface attached to it, stretched out via spring tensioning mechanisms on the frame, is flat as a runway; and
3. The centre speaker you place behind the acoustic screen will have a clear path to your ears and not be blocked by a crossbar.
Premium black velour
The black frame around this screen is finished in a hand-wrapped premium velour material which has excellent light absorption properties. This makes it much easier to line up the projected image with your screen, because you can zoom in slightly and have a little spillover (or 'over-scan') which just gets absorbed by the flocked border. The border is 80mm wide on each of the four sides.
Review by Tony O'Briend on StereoNET
"Meticulous attention to detail, excellent quality with bright, punchy images are the hallmarks of the Encore screens."
"The combination of build quality and performance at these price points is hard to ignore. Match either of these screens to a capable home theatre projector, and you're going to be rewarded with excellent SDR and HDR imagery."
