I agree with 11.
I understand most folks on this site are backyard movie fans and equipment for a backyard budget. I was there because I love showing movies and my history in the D-I's. I started out with home made screen including Carl's and others. I enjoyed it so much that when people asked can you come to my house I said YES!.
Folks on this site area always bringing new items, thought to the table. What bothered me after reading and looking at your site it came to "He's using this site as a free ad for his screen".  WRONG!
Tell us this is your ideal, your screen, oh buy the way I sell them.

Enough said, time to move on the season is almost here

Are you ready to show movies under the stars

I know your screens will do both front and rear projection. What do you do. The reason I ask is when do rear projection you loose some brightness. The amount depends on screen size. Of the top of my head I would not do under 4500 lum.,  HD, HDMI, RGB. Stay with a brand name. That said it all depends on your budget.

 Just to update I own several OAC, LOCH, BACKYARD screens plus several other makes. I'm an old Drive-in Theater operator. I want my screens to represent a prof. look. I insist on a high end presentation. My viewers are do the very best.  
I did check out the site and youtub. What is the height from the ground to the bottom of the sheet. It appears to be on the low side.            
 Is this screen business yours.  I saw Lawson on the bottom of the web site.

Sorry it rubbed you the wrong way.
From what I see it has NO full frame, NO feet. I've tried screens with just to upright poles supported by only guide line to secure it.

Loch screens are well built, light weight, rear projection and look pro and are not that pricey.

If you plan on only using the screen for your backyard fine, but if your renting out that's another story.

Just my thoughts

This is a NO thrills screen for a backyard only. You can buy a Loch screen and take it any where and a prof. looking screen.
Sorry, I would not buy it even for my sons backyard.

Your audio source will go into the FM trans. Most units will accept rca (red/white) line in. Some will also have a stereo mini jack input. As for using your I phone most DO NOT have the FM radio option turned on.
I advise folks to bring some type of FM radio. I have about 50 Sony Walkmans just in case. If I'm doing a drive in they use the car radio.
Last season I investigated the I phone FM radio with no luck.

My Film Festival console has 3 OPPO's (love them).
My Drive-in console has 2 OPPO's
All consoles have Kramer seamless switchers
The Denon is a nice unit
It would be nice since rgb is being squeezed out that all HDMI decks has 2 hdmi out

Thanks,
I build all my consoles to fit our needs. I don't like just one console for everything.
I have a 4 unit console for backyards (HDMI) set up for rear projection. NO wires,
projector for kids to touch.

Birthday movies are still around but want the screen package for  nothing.  Parks and Rec are still showing movies with large crowds.  One of my largest crowds in showing a movie in a cemetery.

Go figure

NFL went after a church for having a family supper and the game. This they went after a non-profit group.

Just completed building 2 new consoles.  One is all HDMI and the other RGB for long video runs

Last picture is the crew waiting for showtime at a PTO school movie night with trailer #1. It's used for 20' x 11' and 16' x 9' screen packages. Trailer #2 is for the 40' an Drive-in theatre screen packages

My backyard screen was all wood like the first D-I I worked at. However my screen was a billboard material over the painted plywood. It lasted 10 years. If it got dirty I just washed it with soap and water.
