 LED Vs PROJECTION EQUIPMENT 

Find out why we only use LED screens with our comparison between LED SCREENS & PROJECTION below!

Further to using LED screens we now use the latest in high resolution 'Black' screens to provide improved contrast ratio vital for screening films. 

Many suppliers are now using LED screens for Outdoor & drive-in cinemas however are using generic screens designed for multi-purpose use such as screening sports and music events.  These screens use traditional LED technology which provides poor contrast ratio meaning blacks can appear grey and washed out. 

By designing our screens with our manufacture for the purpose of screening films allows us to provide unbeatable performance with deeper blacks and superior image quality in daylight as demonstrated below.

Using generic stock screens designed for multipurpose uses can lead to poor black performance and a grey, washed out image.
