We are asked frequently about rear projection film backside viewing will look like when the projection display is being used.
This is not the easiest question to answer because there are many variables that need to be addressed.
Ambient lighting: this plays a huge role in how the rear projection film back side viewing of the film will look, if ambient lighting is low then the image on the back side will be more visible. If the ambient light is high such as a store front window with direct sunlight the rear side image will be less visible.
Rear Projection Film Choice: The Rear Projection Film you choose, just like ambient light on the film you are projecting on plays a huge role in this. Accent and Intrigue rear projection films are less likely to have a rear side viewable image than Definition or Definition Pro films.
Projector Brightness: This is because they block less light out from the front. The rear Projector/Lumens you choose and the amount of lumens you throw at the rear side of the film will increase or decrease the rear side view in low ambient light and high ambient light and on any of the films.
Image Size: This also varies based on the size of the image you are projecting. Best option is to speak with one of our customer service representatives. We will help you specify the correct rear projection film and projector for your installation location if back side viewing is a concern or desire.
