Front Projection Screen

What is a Front Projection Screen?

To make laser effects visible, a projection medium is always required. For laser beams fog or haze is sufficient. For laser graphics and laser projections a projection surface is needed, e.g. a screen

There are different types of screens, which differ by the material used or by the type of projection.
Front projection screens generally consist of an opaque, but highly reflective material. The projection takes place in front of the viewer. The image is created by the reflection of the laser light on the projection surface.
Front projections screens are most common and also used in combination with video projectors. For laser projections on front projections screens, special materials are used, which make even darker colors visible.
