Screen Innovations 3 Series
Fixed-frame projector screen with Solar Gray fabric (106")
Our take on the Screen Innovations 3 Series by Crutchfield's Steve Kindig
For a big, beautiful, glare-free picture, you can't beat a projector system.
A projection screen that's ready for 4K
As a projector owner, I'm pretty excited that we're carrying Screen Innovations projection screens. They offer different screen materials optimized for a variety of room lighting conditions, and they're one of the first screen-makers with models specifically designed for 4K Ultra HD video. If you've been considering getting a large-screen 4K TV, you may find that you can upsize your viewing experience considerably with a projector — at a price that might surprise you.
Whether you get an HD or a 4K projector, do yourself a favor and pair it with a well-designed screen like this Screen Innovations 3 Series model. It will ensure a smooth, uniform picture that's a huge improvement over projecting onto a wall. Projector screens have special optical coatings that enhance their reflective properties — walls don't.
Superior picture quality — by design
The 3 Series is Screen Innovations' most affordable line of 4K-compatible screens. The screen's surface has a noticeably finer "grit" than HD screens, so all of 4K's extraordinary picture detail is preserved. The company's Solar Gray material boasts a revolutionary emboss pattern, for perfect color neutrality and zero sparkle. And the material's dark color delivers outstanding black levels.
This screen also features 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.

I'm using this along with a Sony 4K 285es projector in a light controlled room. This screen provides a fantastic picture. The frame was easy to put together and is very well built. If you want a nice high end screen, then I highly recommend this one. I have no regrets.
