Projectors can be used to project an image from either the front or rear of the screen. Front projection screens are the most common, and the easiest to setup however certain situations require rear projection:

  • When in a listed building that prohibits mounting a projector to the ceiling
  • When the ceiling is too high on which to mount a projector
  • Where it is not appropriate (or possible) to project an image over the heads of the audience

When using the rear projection method, it is advisable to get a short throw projector that can project a large image at a short distance. It is generally more difficult to set up rear projection as it is prone to hot spotting.

If you are considering rear projection, contact our screen specialists to discuss your requirements.  They will be able to advise you how best to proceed.
