What is gain value?

Gain is a measurement of the reflectivity of any screen or projection surface. The gain number represents a ratio of the light that is reflected from the surface as compared to a whiteboard – 1.0 represents the measurement of a regular whiteboard.
Choose a higher gain value projection surface for brighter rooms with narrow viewing angle – for example conference rooms and classrooms. Avoid the issues of hotspotting and colour shifts by not exceeding a 1.3 gain value.
Choose a lower gain value projection surface to create a home theatre effect in a darkened room. Grey projection surfaces tend to have lower gain values and higher light contrast ratings.
