TecVision CS1200X ALR

The TecVision family features unparalleled performance with individual features that set them apart. Lower, more consistent gloss levels offer less picture distortion and wider viewing cones provide better off-axis viewing. Carefully-formulated, light-absorbing dark backing on each surface prevents picture degradation from light behind the screen. ALR materials are available in electric and fixed frame screens in sizes up to 23’ x 69’ (701 cm x 2,103 cm). Each formulation or surface is available in NanoPerf up to 102” (259 cm) tall. Acoustically-transparent NanoPerf is ideal when viewers are at least 10’ (305 cm) from the screen. TecVision provides huge savings compared to the cost of purchasing a projector with increased brightness.


    ISF logoISF Certified. This premium surface is engineered for very high contrast, precise resolution and color accuracy, rejecting 82% of ambient light. CS1200X ALR performs very well in spaces where there is high ambient light and narrow viewing angles. This surface is 8K ready to ensure optimal image performance at the highest resolution and is ISF™ Certified for color accuracy. Perforated TecVision surfaces are 4K ready. Lens/Throw distance ratio for best brightness uniformity: 1.7:1 or longer.

Viewing Surface Names

Each surface has a name that includes the characteristics it has. The following shows an example with definitions and examples of each area listed below.

Viewing Surface Key

X: Extra-wide. Half gain is greater than 60°

M: Moderate. Half gain is 30-60°

C: Controlled. Half gain is less than 30°

T: Typical. Surfaces with "typical" contrast are white in color and are generally recommended for use where ambient light is controlled.

H: High. Surfaces with "high" contrast usually have a grey surface or substrate. Their black retention is enhanced and they perform well under reasonable levels of ambient light.

S: Superior. This designation is reserved for surfaces with remarkable contrast and resistance to ambient light. Our "superior" surfaces will meet or exceed the contrast offered by any competitive viewing surface.

The numeric portion of the name is its typical peak gain x 1000. Gain levels of surfaces cover the full range from 0.6 to 3.2, and minor variations may occur between the samples. Lower gain surfaces offer excellent uniformity across wide viewing cones, for excellent edge blending and consistent reproduction with short throw projectors. Higher gain surfaces offer a more brilliant display in a variety of settings.

* Gain is a measure of reflected or transmitted brightness as compared to a block of magnesium carbonate, which serves as the industry's standard for gain of 1.0. A more familiar "real-world" comparison is with a matt white projection screen. Most matt white screens have a fairly uniform light distribution pattern with gain of approximately 1.0. Screens that appear brighter on axis are concentrating reflected light in a narrower area: the gain may be 2.5 on axis but 0.5 at 60° to the side.

Some viewing surface codes include an E or V suffix after the gain number.

E: Indicates a self-supporting viewing surface that is part of the OptiView family and/or suitable for Draper Series E non-tensioned screen models.

V: Indicates the surface is part of our OptiFlex family of tensioned surfaces and/or suitable for Draper Series V tensioned screen models.
