Welcome to this issue of Practical HT Guide Update.

During the last few weeks, we have been working exclusively on Home Theater Projector Screens. In the process, we have updated all content appearing under our projector screen section with added information, new illustrations that better explain the contents appearing under the various articles, and more product reviews from a variety of brands.

Brands covered now include: Da-Lite, Draper, DRH, Elite, Stewart, and Goo Systems. 'Elite Screens' is a relatively new entrant and come with their highly affordable electric projector screens, while 'Goo Systems' produce specially formulated projector screen paints that can be applied on any smooth paintable surface. 

In total, we now have over 9 updated pages and 6 new articles - including three home theater screen selection guides. This also means that now we have a third new 'projector screens' guide that should go on to help provide added information when making a purchase. One should not forget that though projector screens represent a minimal expense in comparison to the rest of any home theater setup, yet a good quality home theater screen do not come cheap. Hence, making the wrong choice is surely not an option.

The latest addition to our series of projector screen guides discusses the issue of screen gain vis-à-vis projector output and ambient light. Achieving the right balance between these three parameters is essential for the best results. With today's high power video projectors, it is possible to end up with a too bright an image - even under normal ambient room light conditions! In this article, we explain how to match these parameters to ensure an optimum projected image brightness.

More details on this new content, including respective webpage links, are being given below:
