Da-Lite 81994 Imager Screen
106" fixed-frame projection screen
Our take on the Da-Lite 81994 Imager Screen by Crutchfield's Steve Kindig
If you're serious about creating a cinema-like experience in your home theater, turn to the screen experts at Da-Lite. The Imager series is one of their high-performance fixed-frame designs, offering outstanding build quality and crowd-pleasing image quality.
The sturdy 2" aluminum frame assembles in minutes. You attach the screen material to the frame using the provided snaps, which stretches the screen flat to provide a smooth, uniform surface for the projected image. The frame's black powder-coat finish looks stylish, while also concealing projector overshoot and boosting the visual punch.
This 106" screen features Da-Lite's smooth, white Da-Mat® surface. It ensures accurate image reproduction, and provides an exceptionally wide angle of view with little loss of resolution. Da-Mat is a great choice for situations where you can control your room's ambient light, and where a wide viewing angle is necessary.

Da-Lite 81994 Imager Screen Reviews
Preliminary info from the manufacturer
Overview: The Da-Lite Imager is a fixed frame, non-retractable projection screen, designed to be permanently mounted to a wall or in a wall opening. It has a black, powder-coated aluminum frame, which provides a sleek, black masking border. The Imager provides a perfectly flat screen, ideal for video projection. It comes with the Da-Mat screen fabric, which is attached to the 2" frame by snaps.
Viewing Area: The screen has a 106" (diagonal) viewing area with a 16:9 aspect ratio, perfect for viewing your HDTV programs and movies. The viewing area is 52" high and 92" wide.
Screen Surface: The Da-Mat screen surface is a smooth, white material which gives you precise images and a wide viewing angle (+/-60° from center). It has a gain factor of 1.0, which means the amount of light projected on the screen is returned to the viewer at the same brightness. Da-Mat is ideal for situations with controlled ambient light, and where a wide viewing angle is required. The screen surface is washable with mild soap and water, flame retardant, and mildew resistant.
Installation: This Da-Lite projection screen is designed to be permanently wall-mounted. The frame comes in four pieces, and must be assembled. In addition, two wall-mount brackets are included, one each for the top and bottom. Enough hardware is included for assembling the frame, fastening the viewing surface, and attaching the wall-mount brackets. The screen does NOT include the hardware for securing it to the wall. It is recommended that the wall-mount brackets be secured to wall studs.
