You have to admit that it is a really kick ass bar code though!  NOT

Tell me about the actual screen material?  It looks similar to a Draper screen.

Good one.  The PVC tube cost considerably less than the screen, so hopefully I never need to return the screen.  It will scan at $1.79!

I've never handled a Draper screen before, so I can't give a direct comparison.  The specs for the screen say that it is actually .15mm PVC.  I've been looking around to see if anyone sells this type of PVC film, but no luck so far.  It basically feels like a shower curtain.  And, as I found out the hard way, it stains easily.

It does allow rear projection, but anyone who sees the picture from behind immediately notices how much brighter it is from the side you project on.  Do most rear projection screen materials behave like this (noticeably brighter on the rear side)?

For anyone with a Sima screen, I spoke to a rep the other day.  He told me that hopefully by mid September they will be selling replacement parts (ie screen for me) plus some additional accessories (which he did not elaborate on).

BigScreenThrills,

Sorry if I missed your other posts, so Welcome!. I thought about rolling it up on a piece of pvc, but decided against it, for the very same reason that you painfully are now aware. I roll mine on the cardboard and then use a bag from one of my DJ speaker stands.

Dano, The screen material is comparable to that of a Draper, Da-Lite, AV Stumpfl(I have this one for indoor use and it is awesome!) "front projection".

As you may or may not know, these companies use a grey pvc for rear projection, that's why the SIMA isn't as bright. Personally, I can't tell that much difference with my 2200 lumen PJ.
