Are you looking for an affordable projector screen you can install in your backyard to enjoy watching a sports event with your friends? Or, do you want a mini theatre right at home? The VIVO portable indoor outdoor projector screen promises to give you a great indoor and outdoor experience. Let’s take a closer look at the product and find out the pros and cons in detail.
When we looked at the VIVO projector screen, we were impressed by the large diagonal screen that provides a 120 degree viewing angle. It comes with a solid black backing which prevents the light from penetrating into the screen, hence it helps in maintaining a really bold picture.
Setting up the screen is a breeze and the back handle comes with an auto-locking mechanism that helps in facilitating a simple projector screen height adjustment. The projector screen comes with a foldable tripod stand which makes it easier for you to set up and take down the screen. It is also highly portable so you can take it with you wherever you go.
We were a little disappointed to find that the stand is very low. So, if you are using it for special occasions and want a hall full of attendees to be able to see the screen then you will need to place it on a table. The screen also does not come with a carry case which is another let down. We really hoped the manufacturer would give us a nice case to keep the projector screen in it.
With VIVO’s portable projection screen , you get a viewing angle of 120 degrees which means you can enjoy clear images and videos from any corner of the room. The wide viewing angle prevents hot spotting and it gives you an amazing image clarity and reproduction from every angle. The four sides of the screen has a black border to increase the picture contrast.
Whether you want to create a professional presentation or enjoy a mini home theatre right in your backyard, the VIVO projector has you covered.
The auto adjusting mechanism of the projector helps you adjust the height of the projector the required level. This product is compatible with most of the LED, DLP, or LCD projectors available in the market.
Another amazing advantage of the VIVO portable projector screen is that it requires low maintenance. When it gets dirty from too much use, it can be cleaned easily with water and mild soap.

We compared the projector with JaeilPLM Wrinkle-Free Portable Outdoor Projection Screen and found that the latter is better than the product-in-review in several aspects.
The JaeilPLM triangular base offers more stability than the tripod stand that comes with VIVO projector. While the JaeilPLM projector is only slightly pricier than the product-in-review, it comes with some really cool features such as wrinkle free screen and a nice carry bag.
The VIVO portable indoor outdoor projector screen is a well-made projector screen that can be used both indoors and outdoors. It has been designed to set up and take down with ease. As the screen is extremely lightweight, you can carry it with you wherever you go. This is a perfect tool you can use for creating a mini home theatre or for business presentations in a corporate setting.
