The conventional projector screens now have a more modern version in interactive projections screens. These screens are more than just flat surfaces where images and documents are projected. They are designed to “communicate” with the projector and the computing devices from which the documents are being projected.
Interactive screens come in panels so that the end users can customize them in terms of size. They are equipped with optical technology for better color contrast and crisp images. The ideal tandem for interactive projections screens are ultra short throw or very short throw projectors mounted overhead close to the screens. This set up eliminates blinding or bouncing of bright light from the projector.
For pen-based interactive projectors, the recommended projections screens are those that are sturdy enough to withstand the frequent pressing of the pen on their surface. In some cases, whiteboards that double as projections screens are preferable. There are some models that make use of a tablet and pen to interact with their screen instead of having to directly press or “write” on the screen.
Most projections screens today are HDR Capable. This means that they are compatible with all recent videos, images, and games. These screens can be used not only for business or educational purposes, but for entertainment and home use as well.
