Even if a totally Dark room treatment (still, by far, the ideal) is not desired, the color and reflectivity treatment is still critical. Kodak gray is still the best alternative wall treatment. The worst would be canary yellow, as has been featured in past Audio/Video Interiors Magazine issues. For watching a title like Fargo, canary yellow is likely to render snowy opening scene as urine yellow! Color neutrality still counts big time!
*Initially, I found this compelling; the Black Diamond in a darkened room suggested the coming of an 80-inch Pioneer KURO.
*Yes, a more conventional screen will serve better if you do most of your watching in the dark.
OK,I'm confused about your comments above. First, you state that in a darkened room it suggests the coming of an 80 in Pioneer Kuro, but yet you state that a conventional screen will be better watching in the dark. So will a conventional screen also rival and Kuro with your projector?
Can you elaborate on this? I too have a room with similar specs as yours but is totally light controlled. Im thinking of getting a Black Diamond but I now question if that's a good idea since I watch most of my movies in the dark. Is there a better screen for light controlled environments?
