What size screen should I have?

Selecting the right screen size is critical to your home cinema experience. If the screen is too small then you won't get the full cinema effect, if it's too large then it will be uncomfortable to watch. As a good starting place click on the articles page and select "Choosing the Right Size".

Often your selection may be limited by the room or the seating distance so treat advice as a guideline rather than rule and think about delaying the purchase of a screen. Most projectors will produce a perfectly watchable image on a light coloured wall so watch a film projected against a wall, adjusting the image size to your preference then measure the image produced. This will give you a good ide about what size screen you want.

If you know what size you want then you can quickly find screens which match using our screen-wizard.
