    Here's an article I think a lot of you would be interested in that I found on PopularScience.com Here's the acctual link

    "Sony Black Screen Technology"
    A projection screen that’s not afraid of the light

    Front-projection TVs have long been relegated to basements and dedicated home-theater rooms because they require near total darkness to produce a watchable picture. Sony’s Black Screen is a coating that selectively reflects just red, blue and green and absorbs the wavelengths of light that would otherwise wash out the picture, freeing front projectors to be used in any room, even in broad daylight, and still deliver a crisp, high-contrast image. Screens will be available next year.

    If this is true and cheap enough then it, along with the drop in FP prices could revolutionize the industry.

    We'll see.

    There is a big thread over on the avsforum on this screen. If you sort through it, there are some pictures of the screen in action.

    It sounds like interesting technology although it will probably be expensive. Still, great news for FP owners (just got my first one a couple of weeks ago).
