Projection Screen
A projection screen is an installation consisting of a surface and a support structure used for displaying a projected image for the view of an audience. Projection screens may be permanently installed, as in a movie theater; painted on the wall;[1] or portable with tripod or floor rising models.[2] as in a conference room or other non-dedicated viewing space.
