Choosing Projector Screens (Buying tips)
Use: Choose a fixed frame projector screen when holding frequent meetings in boardrooms, conference rooms, and other meeting places. If you frequently travel to give different presentations, get a compact portable projector screen that you can bring with you and install anywhere. For classrooms and school theaters, choose a manual projector screen.
Size: For showing video presentations with minimal to no distortion, choose a projector screen that can be used with both HDTV and NTSC formats.
