Follow up to my earlier post this week on spray-on screen Goo. Apparently Sony has just come up with a black projector screen which really improves the quality of projected images in well lit areas. Could be very good news for the front projector biz. [Via BoingBoing]

‘Now Sony has developed a black screen that works on [sic] defiance of colour theory, by reflecting only pure red, green and blue light and absorbing other colours of light including ambient light from fluorescent tubes, light bulbs and other sources of light. Since digital projectors produce pictures using only a combination of red, green and blue light, the result is a high contrast vivid picture where blacks look ‘blacker’ and colours look more realistic in a well-lit room much like that from a conventional white screen in a dark room.’
