The Sony MP-CL1 can create a very watchable, colorful image ranging from around 6 inches to 80 inches in size, though as with all projectors, the light really begins to fall off at the upper end of that range, and pushing it further to its 120-inch limit isn’t advisable.
To test the screen in the video I posted I used a Showwx+ since it has more speckle than Sony's MP-CL1. I knew that when I optically modified the Sony completely, that it would have as much speckle as the Showwx+ in the end.
(Especially since I was refocusing the lasers for a sharper image.)
The scan lines are fixed on the Showwx+ and Sony, so the lines are impossible to control once you go up to larger sizes. Make the picture too big and even my special speckle free screen will not work on the scan lines anymore. (But it will still work on removing laser speckle at ANY size.)
At smaller laptop pc sizes (14" to 20" sizes) the scan lines of the showwx+ are not apparent due to my patent pending water-clear speckle canceling holographic layer incorporated into the screen material. This results in a brighter projector for any given laser output power without sacrificing sharpness or contrast.
(See pics above in previous post of the keyboard.)
Since the Sony is of higher resolution than the Showwx+, the scan lines are smaller, so with the Sony you will have more room to go larger but still a limit will be reached when the image size becomes 'too large' to adequately hide the scanlines.
My screen is meant to deal with laser speckle only but as an unintentional side effect hides scanlines inherent to the projector at smaller sizes. This makes the image brighter and the colors brighter as well.
My screen improves both brightness uniformity and resolution uniformity.
