New OZ Projector Screen Company See Big Demand For 3D On 100 Inch + Screens

By Matthew Lentini | Wednesday | 30/03/2011

A new projector screen company has burst onto the scene as demand for larger screens grows, driven in part by the emergence of 3D movies.

Carson Screens, who are currently looking for sub-distributors in Australia, believe there is a large market for projector screens due in part to a a move by consumers who are purchasing projectors and large 100 inch plus screens to watch sport and 3D movies. 

The Carson screens, that are made of material imported from the USA have a unique selling proposition due to the structure of the projector screens' frame, with the bevelled edge pieces measuring wider than the average screen for a more pronounced look.

The range consists of powered screens, fixed frame screens, large commercial screens and portable screens.

 

 In the powered screen range Carson use a large French Somfty motor ensuring faster deploy and less material manipulation. The result is a flat surface with improved image reproduction.

The frames that are made in Asia are built around a U.S made 4 layer silicon matte white material that is available in different colours. All materials come standard with black backing for opacity. Optional floating mounting brackets allow mounting onto  a wall or ceiling.

Paul Godfrey, head of Carson Screens, began selling screens ten years ago, but recently decided that he wanted to start offering his own designs to customers with a new take on the expanding market.

"Two years ago, everybody bought 90-100 inch screens - today we can barely sell them. Everyone wants 120 inch now. They want to push the size they can fit in their rooms," said Paul.

According to Paul, 3D movies cropping up on Blu-ray and into viewers' homes are part of the push for larger displays, where viewers look to replicate the cinema experience.



The big display brands like JVC, Samsung, Sharp and LG, to name a few, each have their own 3D-enabled projectors on the market. These projectors shoot out 1920x1080 resolution picture than can be stretched out with lossless quality.

Mistubishi Electric is previewing its latest 3D-ready projector, the HC9000D, next week in Australia.

The quality of the picture is limited by the quality of the projector, with the material, tension and colour all factoring into the picture quality you end up with. According to Paul, there isn't a lot to choose from in Australia for getting the right screen.

"There's not many decent screen companies in Australia. There's opportunity there."

LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
