Paint for projection TV wall

We are comtemplating a projection TV and wonder if these is a special paint we need on the wall where the image will be projected. I had been told there is a special paint but have been unable to find it or get info on exactly what paint would be best for this applicaton.

I would assume a bright white in flat or matte finish would suffice, but I'll make some inqueries as to if there is a special type for this.

Who told you this, or where did you read it?

Paint for projection TV wall

The paint "expert" at Home Depot told me about the special paint. He said they didn't carry it but that Sherwin Williams did. Well, SW didn't and was unable to help me further.

If the rep at sherwin couldn't help, I doubt anyone can. I'm meeting a Sherwin and Ben Moore rep tomorrow, I'll see if they can provide any info.

try the projection mfg

While a bright, flat, matte white will work, you won't get the maximum benefit from it.

I'd try some of the projection mfgrs or call some high end audio/video stores for their opinion.

I asked the SW and BM rep this a.m. if they had heard of such a thing. Both said no.
