Definitions for "Rear Screen Projection"
Image projected on the back surface of a screen placed between the viewer and the projector.
A projection system where the projector is behind the screen.
Projection on to an opaque screen, with the projector placed behind the screen, invisible to the audience. A wide choice of rigid and flexible screen materials are available - plus a range of folding, portable rear-projection screens. As the image is not 'reflected' off the screen surface, but viewed through the screen, images are subjectively much brighter than those from front-projected screens. Where space behind the screen is limited, a projector with a short throw lens can installed. In very confined areas, a surface-silvered mirror can be used to artificially increase the projection distance.
