In bright projection environments contrast is crucial to achieving an outstanding image. Conventional rear or front projection screens are associated with darkness, curtains and blinds. They reflect all available light not just the projector’s light, creating poor contrast levels. These low contrast ratios often cause eyestrain – and make it hard for the audience to concentrate.
Empirical studies show that in order for a viewer to be able to see detailed information clearly, the minimum acceptable image contrast is 15:1.
This is NOT achievable using a standard white front projection screen in normal environments. That’s why, in 2004, dnp introduced the Supernova screen range – the world’s first front projection screens to break the 15:1 contrast barrier. What’s more, our rear projection screens offer contrast ratios of well above 30:1.
Thanks to advanced contrast-enhancement technologies, dnp optical screens dramatically boost the perceived quality of your image. You get blacker blacks, more vivid colours and brighter, sharper images. In fact, scientific tests show that dnp optical screens can enhance the contrast level of a projected image by 7 times when compared to a similar image on a standard white front projection screen.

That’s the power of contrast.
