Screen Innovations 5 Series
Fixed-frame projector screen with Pure® Gray fabric (100")
Our take on the Screen Innovations 5 Series by Crutchfield's Steve Kindig
This screen is ready for 4K — and beyond
If picture quality matters as much to you as sheer image size in your projector system, Screen Innovations' 5 Series sets the standard for high-end fixed-frame screen performance. As a projector's resolution increases, the pixel size decreases. The smaller the pixel, the more chance there is that a screen's weave pattern or "grit" will dull some of the picture detail. If you're thinking about making the jump to a 4K projector, like one of Sony's SXRD models, a 5 Series screen makes an ideal match.
5 Series screens can show even the finest details
The 5 Series screens use Screen Innovations' advanced Pure screen material. Pure® features SI's proprietary Micro Texture surface that is nine times finer and smoother than conventional screen materials. That means 4K Ultra High Definition content will look pinpoint-sharp, with exceptional picture depth. Pure screens are actually rated for 8K video, so that if and when 8K projectors and content ever arrive, this screen will be ready. Pure Gray has .85 gain, which enhances contrast and black levels. This screen will work best in a room with some light control.
5 Series fixed screens feature a sturdy 3-1/2"-wide aluminum frame wrapped in non-reflective black velvet. Having black borders frame the viewing area enhances the perceived brightness and colors of on-screen images, and ensures that if your projector's image spills over the edges of the screen a tiny bit, you won't notice it.
This screen ships unassembled, and can be put together using basic hand tools. Screen Innovations' patented EZ-Snap™ tensioning system simplifies installation, and ensures an exceptionally flat, tight surface, for projecting a flawlessly smooth image. The screen should be mounted 36" to 42" from the floor.

Thanks for submitting your review
Screen Innovations (SI): Screen Innovations (SI) is a leading manufacturer of projection screens and associated technologies for residential and commercial applications.
Screen Sizes: The Screen Innovations 5 Series Theater Fixed Projection Screen is available in the following screen sizes - 100", 106", 110", & 120" (measured diagonally).
16:9 Aspect Ratio: The 5 Series Fixed Projection Screen is available in the most popular aspect ratio, 16:9, which is the same as most flat-panel televisions.
4K-Rated Screen Materials: The Screen Innovations 5 Series Theater Fixed Projection Screen is available in four screen materials - Pure White, Pure Gray, Slate 1.2, or Slate 0.8. These screen materials are perfect for watching 4K video content, delivering image quality that is razor sharp with perfect color and uniformity.
- Pure White: Pure White features SI's proprietary Micro Texture that is 9x finer and smoother than that of the best screen material available on the market today. This means ultra high definition (4k+) content won't be dulled by your screen material.
- Pure Gray: Pure Gray, like its brother Pure White also features SI's 9x finer and smoother texture than standard screen materials for un-matched resolution and picture clarity but in a darker color which improves black levels.
- Slate 1.2: Slate 1.2 replaces the need to settle for a substandard screen in a family room setting, by rejecting 65% of the room's ambient light vs. only <10% light rejection with a white or gray screen.
- Slate .8: The second flavor of SI's award winning Slate material, Slate .8 is black in color but reflects all colors of the spectrum.
Velvet Wrapped Aluminum Frame: The Screen Innovations 5 Series Theater Fixed Projection Screen features a 3.5" black velvet wrapped, aluminum extrusion frame that is anti-reflective.
EZ-Snap Tension System: Screen Innovations' patented EZ-Snap tensioning system was designed to make installation a breeze as well as giving our material the flattest and tightest mount on the market today. This system optimizes projector focus, producing sharper images as well as permanently eliminating any concerns about traditional "screen sag"
Mounting Options: The Fixed Projection Screen mounts to the wall using the supplied mounting brackets and hardware. The screen should be mounted 36" to 42" from the floor. Your projector should be mounted evenly with the top of the screen or angled 11° above or below the top of the screen.

1 question already asked
1 answer I bought the Screen Innovations 5 Series Fixed-frame projector screen with Pure® Gray fabric (120") and the Sony VPL-VW285ES projector to replace my old projector which is currently about 12 feet from the screen and mounted from the ceiling. I real on your site that you shouldn't mount your screen lower than 36 inches from the floor. But my new 120" screen would go from the top of the ceiling to 30" above the floor. Will this cause any issues? Will is still work correctly? Can the Sony project a 120" image in 4K with the projector mounted from the ceiling, 12 feet back from the screen which is only 30 inches above the floor? Will I have to move the projector back farther? [ Mike Oct 02, 2018 ]
