The Blimpscreen

The Blimpscreen is an inflatable video or projection screen that can be erected instantly, almost anywhere. It is available in standard sizes of 20ft., 15ft and 10 ft. wide and custom sizes are available. The screen is designed for front or rear projection and a bottom or side dress panels are available to configure the screen size for a particular video or film format. The front projection surface is a durable white perforated vinyl and the whole system is completely weatherproof and can withstand light winds. The whole system can be deflated in a matter of seconds, should weather conditions require it, making it safe and practical for outdoor projection of video, film, slides, laser shows or other media.
The screens are quickly detachable and can be replaced with optional surfaces, scrims or painted signs for daytime display. The complete system weighs less than 200lbs and can be setup in a few minutes, making it ideal for temporary promotions and signage where a conventional screen installation would be too heavy or too dangerous or installation time is critical. The system can be setup on roof tops, lawns or parking structures.
The Blimpscreen is ideal for outdoor movie projection, special events, laser shows or other applications where instant setup and teardown is important. Safety First!

All the units use a continuous high-pressure blower and are designed to "breathe" - so small scrapes or punctures will not affect the unit, and it will not deflate during a show!

The Blimpboard

The Blimpboard is an inflatable billboard designed for single or two-sided exposure to traffic, that can be used anywhere, anytime that temporary signage is required. Available in a standard size of 15 ft. wide, it is also available in smaller and larger dimensions and in a variety of eye-catching colors.
The sign can be inflated in less than a minute and is designed for use in parking lots or on roof tops. The base is five feet high and so allows the sign to stand above most roof parapets. The unit can be tethered from several tie points and so can withstand light winds. The fabric is UV resistant and completely weatherproof to withstand the elements. The surfaces can be changed easily and may be painted or printed. A lighting package is available for nighttime display.
The Blimpboard is ideal for radio station promotions, grand openings, temporary signage, merchandising booths, car dealers, parking lot sales or other special marketing promotions.

  FAQs - Many of these tips and Answers are courtesy of our independent operators around the country - Thank you everyone!

Q-What is the screen made of?
A - We offer two types of screen - the standard is a perforated vinyl. This is about 25% transparent to the air and so is less susceptible to wind movements. It is very strong and completely weather proof so can be hosed down with soapy water to clean it up! The screen works equally well for both front and rear projection. You need to make sure there are no lights behind the screen in the viewing angle, or these will show through.
The second type of surface is a solid, white, rip-stop type material. You will get slightly better resolution and reduced effect from lights behind the screen - the downside is that it does not "breathe" and also is easier to get dirty!

Q-What is the best one to get?
A - We suggest the 15x20 unit as the best screen to purchase. We use this one in our rentals. It weighs in at about 100 lbs and so is easy to load and unload and is quick to install. The diagonal dimension is about 25ft! and the overall size about 25 ft wide x 23 ft high which also means it will be likely fit inside a school gymnasium for those rainy day shows! It packs in a bag about the size of a trash can and ships in a box 4x2x2. It can easily be transported in a small hatch back or station wagon.

Q-How much does the Blimpscreen weigh?
A- The 15x20 frame weighs 100lbs - the shipping weight of the frame and screen packed in the shipping box weighs 135 lbs. The blower weights about 40lbs and along with the accessories for shipping weighs 69 lbs. The screen and accessories ship in two shrink wrapped boxes.


Q-How many people does it take to set up?
A - One experienced person! But.... two able bodied novices can set up the system in about 45 minutes. Pack up time about 30 minutes - most of that is rolling it up! Weight is about 100 lbs for the 15x20 screen. You will usually be able to wrangle a couple of helpers for a few minutes from the park staff!

20 min. " " Shorts & animation

0 Main feature begins
45 min. after show Break-down complete


Q - How far away does the projector have to be?
A - Usually a video projector needs to be 1 - 2 times the width of the screen, away from the screen. Today's projectors all have fairly good zoom lenses to provide some flexibility.

Q - How bright does the projector need to be?
A - We suggest an LCD projector with at least 2500 lumens for the 15ft wide screen and 3500+ for the 15x20. A 4500 lumen projector is probably the brightest you will need.

Q - Can I use rear projection?
A - Yes. The perforated screen works 90% as well for rear as it does for front! We have many customers who use the same surface for both front and rear.

Q - How do I need to store it?
A -  The material we use is similar to the fabric used in the "Jolly Jumps" and is extremely durable and will not be adversely effected from storage in a locker, garage or warehouse. The screen is best loosely rolled on a tube if at all possible - to avoid creasing. However a few hours laid out in the sun should take out the worst creases before a show. At show time you will find slight creases and wrinkles will disappear - that's in reference to the screen as well as the audience!

Q - Can I rent it and see how it performs before I buy one?
A - Absolutely! We want you to be happy with this product and the best way is to test drive it! We will apply the first weeks rental charge to the purchase price. To this date we have never had one returned - which is why we are always short on rental units!

Q - Can I put the Blimp on any surface?
A - Yes - but unless it is on soft grass, you need to lay out a sturdy mat or tarp to prevent chafing and abrasion to the base of the unit.

Q - What wind conditions can the Blimpscreen operate in?
A - The rough answer to this is - at the point where your audience is beginning to leave - shut things down! No one wants to sit and watch a movie when paper cups are flying and papers are starting to blow everywhere. Realistically that's a breeze of 7-10 MPH. Always set up the screen at 90 degrees to the prevailing wind and use all the guy lines with heavy stake pegs. Remember the blimpscreen is not impervious to wind - but when it does fall down with a high gust - it will not create the damage and mayhem a solid frame screen may do! Always rope off a clear area around the screen and caution tape your guy lines!

Q - What is the warranty on the Blimpsign?
A - The Blimpsign products are warranteed for 1 year to be free of workmanship or material defects.
The warranty does not cover tears, rips, or punctures that are the result of mis-use or use in conditions that are unsuitable. Any workmanship defects in the manufacture will be repaired at no charge during the first 90 days.  Customer will be responsible for freight charges.

Q -  What general information do I need about my site location?
A -  Site Suggestions

   The inflatable frame screen must be placed on a level surface (bare ground is fine) at least 30" wide. The location must be free of any aerial or ground obstructions 20 feet high and 15 feet behind the screen.
   Traffic cones/barriers should be placed 10 feet in front of the screen to direct your guests to comfortable viewing positions. Cones should also be used to form an 8' center aisle and cross- aisles at 20' intervals for easy movement of moviegoers.
   Keep the front section available for guests with blankets and direct people with lawn chairs to the rear. The viewing area can expand in a radius as the distance from the screen increases.
   If public restrooms are not conveniently available, consider porta-toilets (1 per 200-250 people).
   If concession vehicles are used, they should be placed with bright lights facing away from the screen and audience.
   Nothing ruins an outdoor movie more than headlights tracing across the screen. Try to avoid parking situations that will spoil the show.
   Vehicle access to the screen and projection area is essential.
   Field size - At minimum, we recommend a space at least 75' by 100'. The optimal size for the outdoor theater is at least 100'-150' wide and 150' to 250' front to back.

Q - What are the sizes of screen we need to project on to?

The easiest way to explain aspect ratio is to say that it means the ratio between the width of the picture and the height of the picture. Normal TV's aspect ratio is 4:3 (1.33:1), HDTV's aspect ratio is 16:9 (1.85:1) and CinemaScope movies' aspect ratio is 2.35:1.

For extremely good explanation of aspect ratios, please visit this URL. or  http://www.flattvpeople.com/tutorials/aspect-ratios.asp

In order to accommodate these varying formats, it is possible to use several different surfaces with black blanking borders to create the exact shape you require - obviously it is also acceptable to simply zoom your projector to optimum fullness on the screen, possibly leaving white areas around the picture. For most events this is quite acceptable. Our standard sizes are designed to accommodate the regular TV 4:3 ratio, however we are moving towards the 16:9 ratio as this is quickly becoming the new standard.

Blimpscreen Press Release Information

Burbank, Ca. based company “Blimpscreen” manufactures an inflatable video and projection screen, used primarily for out door usage.

One of the main problems with projection outdoors is the cost and time involved with installing a suitable projection screen. An outdoor screen is essentially a huge “sail” and a rigid frame screen has the potential of being a major accident waiting to happen if it is not installed and secured correctly. In essence an out door screen has to be “over-engineered” for the worst case scenario in terms of what the weather will bring. This means over building, over securing and over ballasting the frame just in case! This all translates into increased time and installation expense, which often may end up bringing the screen over budget for a particular event.

The Blimpscreen solves all of these problems as it can be inflated or deflated at will. So an operator will have the option of bringing the screen down if inclement weather hits. In a worst case scenario, the screen and frame will not damage itself nor any one or anything if it comes down unsecured.

The Blimpscreen ships with a perforated Textalene screen surface which is about 20% air transparent, allowing the screen to breathe in light winds. The frame is made of  a laminated vinyl similar that used in inflatable boats, so is extremely strong, weather proof, UV proof and can be easily washed with soap and water to clean off sand, dust and debris from outdoor locations.

The screen uses a permanent high pressure blower for inflation and so punctures are not an issue. Once laid out, the screen is attached to the clips on the frame and inflation takes about 2 minutes. The tethers are then adjusted. Once set the screen can be inflated and deflated in the same position without the need to readjust the tethers, making it also useful as a temporary video “reveal”. There are two blower inputs for redundancy in case one unit malfunctions or loses power. The frame weighs in at about 100 lbs and so can easily be wrangled by one person and be transported in a small car or pick up.

The most popular size is the 20 ft wide unit. The opening in the frame is 20 ft x 20ft  and the viewing screen can be configured for any format by adjusting the lower drape area. With a 15x20 (3:4) format the bottom of the screen begins at a 5ft height and using the wide format at about 9 ft. The frame has numerous D rings from witch to attach vertical and horizontal promotional and advertising banners. A 24 ft wide screen is also available and smaller screens down to 9 ft x 12 ft. The frame can be special ordered in almost any color. The standard black 15x20 unit is available from stock.

The Blimpscreen ships with everything needed to get the frame installed including heavy duty steel stakes, tethers, screen, storage bags and blower.  Sound and video packages are also available, as are roadcases and necessary lighting accessories.

The huge resurgence in recent years of Outdoor Cinema and Movies in the Park has created a big demand from communities, cities and movie fans for portable video screens. With a growing number of rental houses now making the Blimpscreen available to these customers we have introduced Blimpnet – a national Blimpscreen referral network for customers looking for outdoor screens.
