Everything you need to know about curved screens

What is a curved screen?

A curved screen, also known as a curved or curved screen, is characterised by its slightly curved projection surface. This curvature can vary depending on the type of screen and the user's preferences. To achieve this curvature, screens are fitted with an aluminium or steel frame that allows the projection screen fabric to be curved at the same time as the frame.

Why choose a curved screen?

Curved screens offer an exceptional visual experience thanks to their ability to occupy a larger field of vision, resulting in a more complete immersion in the projected image. This curvature creates a panoramic effect that greatly enhances the viewing experience.

Unlike flat screens, where the edges are far from the centre, forcing viewers to constantly adjust the distance between their eyes and the screen, curved screens ensure a uniform view from all angles. This ensures that every part of the screen is perfectly visible, offering an unrivalled immersive experience. All in all, it's a feast for the eyes, providing total immersion.

From an aesthetic point of view, curved screens are also very attractive. Their elegant design brings a touch of sophistication to any space, whether it's a place of work or entertainment. It's worth noting that the curvature of the screen can create the illusion of a larger size, which is ideal for smaller spaces.

In addition, curved screens minimise reflections, encouraging even deeper immersion in the projections. They amplify the sensation of depth in the image, increasing viewer involvement.

A disadvantage to take into account

It is important to note that curved screens generally involve an additional cost. This is due to the labour required to bend the screen, both before and during installation.

In addition, their installation requires a more complex fixing technique to ensure stability in the face of vibrations and the distribution of sound and weight. Specific accessories are therefore required, which can generate additional time, energy and costs.

Where to use a curved screen?

Curved projection screens are mainly used in recreational contexts. They are commonly used in cinemas to provide an immersive cinematic experience. They are also frequently found in simulators such as those used for automobile driving, aviation or aerospace. However, their use can extend to other areas, such as exhibitions, meeting rooms or amusement parks.

A wise choice

Ultimately, curved screens remain an excellent choice if you are looking for optimal viewing comfort and total immersion in the projected images.

In the Multivision Screens product range, you will find three models of curved screens: the Cinevision, the Cinewalk and the St-John’s. In any case, these screens are tailor-made to meet the specific needs of each user, thus guaranteeing a perfect adaptation to each request.
