Ambient Light Rejecting Screen Paint

From KSh 42,280.00 Excluding Vat

Ambient Light Rejecting Screen Paint has a special formula to resist unwanted light ingress.

It works by selectively reflecting your projector light back to the audience and scattering excess light from hitting the screen when coming in from the side.

This ambient light rejecting projector screen paint (ALR screen) reduces the washout brightening effect of ambient light to improve the image reflected in brighter rooms. It’s a great solution for rooms that have more ambient light and will maximise ultra short throw and laser projector picture quality.

Why Buy Ambient Light Rejecting Screen Paint?

Ambient Light Rejecting Screen Paint maximises pixel definition, provides crystal clear clarity, and rejects ambient light. This allows the screen to intensify images and return luminous pictures.

Reflection off of smooth surfaces such as painted walls leads to a type of reflection known as specular reflection. Reflection off of rough surfaces such as clothing, paper, and the asphalt roadway leads to a type of reflection known as diffuse reflection.

Our paint on ambient light rejecting screen’s ultra matt layering technology rejects both specular and diffused reflection. The paint has a transparent matting system which floods to the surface of the coating when it is applied. Stray light hitting the screen is then refracted toward the surface, which is then partly absorbed by the specialised pigment system. This specialised layering reduces the amount of stray light scattered across the screen.

This ambient light rejecting screen paint has been designed and tested to provide maximum projection performance, with many industry standard projectors. Unlike with regular material surfaces you won’t need to worry about hotspotting, or the surface area changing its structure and losing performance. Smart Ambient Light Rejecting Projector Screen Paint has a gain value of 0.6 at an angle of 140 degrees.

Our Ambient Light Rejecting Screen Paint is easy and quick to apply, giving you subtle projection functionality, compared to bulky projector screens. Your office, workspace, or learning environment will maintain its minimal and sleek appearance.

Apply the primer, then the two top coats of our Ambient Light Rejecting Screen Paint. There is no limit to the size of your projectable surface, increasing the projection space by adding more tins of paint. It is always ready to use but never in the way when not needed.

It can be applied to any smooth surface. A smoother surface will result in higher image quality. If painting on a wall that has already been painted, prepare the area to be painted with a light sanding first.

It’s designed to work with a projector that has a minimum Lumen rating of 2,000. This minimum requirement ensures that your Ambient Light Rejecting Screen will reflect images that are clear, sharp and bright enough to view.

Ambient Light Rejecting Screen Paint achieves a much higher performance compared to projecting on a standard painted wall:

  • Colour Resolution: 92%
  • Light Reflectivity: 57%
  • Image Definition: 80%

Colour Resolution indicates how well individual colours are represented. Light Reflectivity is the total amount of light falling on the screen that is reflected (i.e. not absorbed or scattered by the wall). Image Definition is the clarity of the image that is reflected.
