The baffle is that black something on the roof? Some cloth perhaps? I use black cloths on the floor and this reduces glare from the floor.

Very nice room Roger, Heaven! Your acreening room is in the general of heaven too ..... "upstairs". So screening rooms in the basement are in the general direction of the netherworld. [Big Grin]

Yeah Akshay, Thanks for your comments.
This is in our upstairs loft! I suspended 2 wooden panels from the ceiling and stretched black cloth over each panel. The panels extend about 4 feet from the screen and what this does is kill the light from the screen from bouncing off the ceiling and then back onto the screen and killing the picture contrast. It really does make quite a difference in picture quality, and it really has to be seen to be believed. Paul Adsett is the one who talked me into doing this and I'm sure glad he did (thanks paul) because before installing the light baffle the scattered light was washing the pix out. I highly recommend everyone doing this if you really want to improve the picture quality!

Looks like Roger has done a great job with that light baffle. Since I first installed my black baffle right over the screen, just as Roger has done, I went on to add a few more. What I found, probably not suprising, is that adding additional panels only effected a slight improvement. In other words 90% of the improvement in picture quality is achieved by that first large black panel right over the screen. You can obviously add more panels if you wish, as I did, but do'nt expect the kind of dramatic improvement that you get with just that first panel.
As you can see from the photo, once I got about 4 feet back from the screen I started mixing burgundy panels in with the black panels. At this point it was done mainly for decorative and room ambience effect.

Thanks Paul mine only came out the way it did is because you gave me excellent detailed instructions on just how to do it so all the credit goes to you my friend. I just wish mine looked half as good as yours does. My wife really likes your choice of burgundy & black colors blended together and I also have to give her credit for helping me out on this project because without her help it would not have been possible.

Thanks Roger. The beautiful thing about this hobby is that it never ends and there is always something you can see to do to make it better and more enjoyable for family and friends. It is an ongoing project. My screening room was started from scratch 9 years ago after a hurricane damaged our house, so I keep doing something to improve it whenever I feel like it, and whenever I think I have a good idea.Little touches really add up to create a great cinema feel. I now have it to the point where it is a daily joy to go in there and kick back and watch my kind of movies.
The best of luck with your own home cinema Roger, I am sure it will bring you endless joy.

Looking really good guys! Thanks Akshay, I guess I'm in the netherworld!

Nice print of Trapper John...I have an episode in 16mm and it looks as stunning as yours. Good show.

I don't have to mess around with baffles because it's naturally dark all over in the netherworld.... [Razz]

OK it doesn't look like much but technically I can officially now call my condo a screening room. My wife finally agreed to let me mount a permanent screen instead of me having to setup and teardown the tripod screen anytime I want to watch something. PLUS I got to go from a 6 foot to an 8 foot screen so i can now enjoyably watch scope films...Hmmmmm now what should I watch first.

Nice, Dino. I have a similar screen installed. I'm presuming that yours folds upward. Once collapsed they are totally unintrusive.

Michael yes it rolls up, and once I paint the metal brackets I used to fasten it to the ceiling it will blend right in when not in use...I am trying to convince my wife to let me install motorized masking but she is not going for it, maybe next year....And yes Paul the 9.5 will be alive!!!!

Nice set-up Dino way to go!

Since I got mine set up my wife is now complaining that I'm spending way too much time in my screening room and not giving her enough attention! [Frown]

Adam...that's brilliant, I like the idea of the curved screen and your VP matches in with the color of the ceiling.

You have done an amazing job and the colors look just great [Cool] ....well done [Smile]
