Canvas Customer Spotlights
Dear Canvas Family,
I have been amazed at the many educators who have done exceptional things during the past few months. We realize it hasn’t been easy, but we have been impressed and are honored to have played a part in helping you.
Throughout the pandemic, I have heard inspiring stories from institutions that have done great things for educators and students. Below you will find just a few that I wanted to highlight (I realize there are thousands of examples that I could have highlighted here):
- East Central Community College set up external wifi stations in parking lots around campus to provide reliable and consistent places for students to continue learning.
- Canyon School District brought on all of their K-4 users in less than one week by using Blueprint Courses in Canvas.
- The Virginia Community College System collaborated with several colleges in their system to provide best practices for the online learning experience as well as course templates to promote great instructional experiences for students.
Like I said, there are thousands of these stories. With the impressive things we have seen and heard, we decided to kick off a campaign to showcase YOU. Today, I am proud to announce our Customer Showcase Program, where we are highlighting you and your school’s work.
To best highlight your work, we have partnered with a new app called StoryMedia, which will allow you to tell your Canvas Story in a fun and engaging way where we are opening up Canvas brand assets for you to use. See below for a video explaining the program and opportunity:
After you watch the video, please share the inspiration by recording your own video on your phone, highlighting what you and your school have done with Canvas to help the education process move forward. After you do that, download the StoryMedia App, click “Create a Video,” and the process will make sense from there.
Download StoryMedia for Apple or Android.
Once you are done, share your video with us and on social media – make sure you use #CanvasLMS. For those who enter in the next couple of weeks, we will be giving away prizes for our 20 favorites. We are also excited to highlight some of these stories at CanvasCon Online in October.
Thanks for inspiring us and for being part of our education family.
The Canvas Float Frame – Simply Framed
Spotlight On: The Canvas Float Frame
Posted by Brandi Kulakowski on Feb 23, 2016
The canvas floater frame is ideal for giving new life to an old oil, showing off a master’s signature or letting the work stand on its own. Here’s an up-close look at the gap it provides to create the illusion that a work is floating, shown in our luxe silver canvas float frame. (BTW, we can’t get enough of this one. It’s hand-finished in France and has an exquisite gilded silver face and white-washed sides). This type of frame pairs well with classic paintings and contemporary designs alike.
Our canvas float frames have a narrow profile to really make the artwork pop. We stretch your canvas around wooden stretcher bars and attach it to the inside of the frame. Then we create ¼” of space between the edge of your canvas and the inside of the frame so that it exposes the whole canvas.
Building canvas floater frames wholesale is one of our specialties, and working with us to create a wholesale custom framing account is super easy. If you are looking to be a new partner, the simple process starts with contacting us on our Partner page (scroll down to the “Talk to Us” area at the bottom of the page) and telling us about your wholesale custom framing needs. If you are an existing partner, simply log in and place an order on our vendor portal or contact us to learn more about float frames. Once we receive your art, we build a custom frame for the work (or works if it is a large order), and then ship it off to you (or your customers) in sturdy, protective packaging.
Check out this behind-the-scenes shot of Daisy Briceño, our head of operations, building a frame for a massive piece of street art.
The minimal design of the canvas float frame is incredibly elegant and holds its own in a gallery wall. Case in point is Zoe Bios Creative’s Francis 5 painting in the black canvas float frame (we love how it transformed this wall. p.s. To learn more about this project, check out the before and after we did with Lonny!).
We partner with the best in the business, artists with upcoming exhibitions and designers crafting magnificent gallery walls, providing wholesale custom framing options to meet everyone’s needs. As a go-to resource for canvas floater frames and all your other custom framing needs, we create frames that transform how works fit within their environs, in cozy living rooms and minimalist white cubes alike.
We love our partners. Interested in becoming one? Contact us here.

About The Painting:
How to Calculate Projector Screen Dimensions
Before making a projector screen that may vary in size depending on seating position and room design, careful calculations must be made.The canvas should be placed in front of the audience (audience), but not in front of the device itself. This rule will be the key to the success of the event.
If a projector wallboard is to be used, its height should be approximately 1/6 of the canvas-last row of viewers distance. In this case, the text on the screen will be perfectly visible. Ideally, the first row of viewers will be two canvas heights apart. This is the minimum interval from which it will be comfortable to perceive information.The bottom of the screen should be 1.2 meters above the floor. In this case, viewers from the last row will see all the information located on the canvas.
When calculating the dimensions of the projection screen, the type of format that will be reproduced must be taken into account. If videos of different types will be shown, then all of them should be considered. The screen size should be the largest of all reproducible types.
|NTSC video||4: 3 (1.33)|
|Pal video||4: 3 (1.33)|
|HDTV video||16: 9 (1.78)|
Types of screens for the projector You need to select the screen according to the projector
assigned tasks and individual requirements.Distinguish between canvases of rear or direct projection; with manual or motorized control; with ceiling or wall mounting. Wall and ceiling screens are best suited for stationary placement.
Canvases with manual and motorized control are also called roll canvases. Here the way the screen is minimized is important so that it does not take up space.
When holding meetings or conferences, canvases on a tripod are often used. Such screens are very compact when assembled and can be easily transformed.They can be adjusted in height, easy to transport.
Also, the screen for the ceiling projector can be roll-up, no matter what it is, installed or portable. If you need to save space, then you simply cannot do without such a canvas.
Installing the projection equipment
To install the projection equipment, you need to perform two steps: select the location and size of the image.
Selection of projector and screen location depends on the size of the room, its layout and user preferences.The choice is also influenced by the width and height of the web, the location of the outlet, the distance to the equipment, etc.
The projector can be installed in several positions:
- on the front on the table;
- front on the ceiling;
- on the back of the table;
- rear on the ceiling.
The equipment can be adjusted using a special menu. And if you make a screen for the projector with your own hands, then the control will be the same as for the purchased canvas.
In the second point of mounting the projected equipment is the choice of the size of the image that will be placed on the canvas.The width and height of the picture depends on the distance between the screen and the projector, the video signal format and the magnification. The equipment should stand on a flat horizontal surface, the beam should fall strictly perpendicular to the center of the web.
After these steps, you need to properly connect the projector. There are many connectors on its back. Users who make presentations constantly connect the computer to the projector through the same input. However, if not slides, but video will be shown, then you need to figure out which connector you need to connect the cable to.
How to make a screen for a projector
Is it difficult to do it? To create a screen for a projector with your own hands, you will need:
- foamed PVC;
- aluminum profile complete with springs, corners, hinges;
- suspension mechanism (rail and rollers), if you need to move the canvas.
All actions to create the screen must be carried out on a spread soft surface. Otherwise, the face of the screen may be damaged.So, the algorithm of actions is as follows:
- You need to fix the frame for the screen by means of special corners. Then install the hinges for the crossbars and fastening to the wall surface.
- The PVC sheet must be fixed in the profile frame with springs.
- If necessary, the rollers are attached to the entire structure.
- Then you need to mount the rollers at the bottom of the screen so as not to scratch the wall when moving the canvas.
- To increase the rigidity of the structure, it is necessary to install vertical posts at the attachment points.
In principle, the question of how to make a screen for the projector has been resolved. The prepared canvas is an order of magnitude better than the purchased rolled canvas. If you wish, you can paint the PVC with gray paint to create the feeling of being in a movie theater.
If there is no opportunity and time to go to a hardware store for a PVC sheet, try alternative methods.
- You can use a wall in your apartment instead of a screen. It is desirable that the surface on top be unused.A white door, refrigerator, or wardrobe will also work.
- You can project the image onto a white ceiling. In this case, you will need a large number of pillows that will be on the floor. And the projector must somehow be fixed not horizontally, but vertically.
- As a screen, you can use a large loose-leaf calendar turned over to the audience with the white side. A white shelf from a wardrobe or chest of drawers, placed on a stool and leaning against the wall, is also suitable. The image will be worse on a white roman blind or light curtain.
Now everything is known about the projector and the screen. It is so nice to watch a movie with the whole family at home on a large improvised canvas, it is so effective to show a presentation at a conference and to win the sympathy of the audience. The modern world without a projector is dull and boring.
Blending the edges of multiple projectors – what is it?
Everyone is familiar with LCD based video walls — mount multiple displays on the wall and create one large canvas of images. Most video wall controllers allow you to adjust bezel compensation to ensure that any gaps between displays are properly adjusted for display output.
Of course, the thinner the display bezel, the less bezel compensation is required. Projection video walls work in a similar way, but instead of having a display, you have projectors displaying images on a surface just because it is a projection, there are no frames and therefore no seams.
When to use projectors and when to use displays for your video wall?
Because projectors rely on bounced light, they work best in dark rooms and anything between the projector and the screen will cast a shadow.Other than that, however, projectors are by far the most economical way to cover a massive image area. And also Userful’s solution lets you stitch multiple projectors together to take advantage of the combined pixel resolution and brightness of multiple low-cost projectors to create massive 4k, 6k or even 8k projection for a fraction of the cost of buying a 4k projector.
Userful lets you cost-effectively mix 16 1080p projectors and create an 8k projector at a fraction of the cost of conventional approaches.
Projector video screens work in the same way as video images on walls – displaying adjacent images next to each other. However, unlike a video wall, a projection video wall allows you to achieve a true seamless image by overlapping their edges (edge blending).
For example, the image may drift slightly as the projector heats up and, like normal displays, it is also possible that even projectors that have the same marker and model have slightly different output characteristics.The way to mitigate these risks and be able to achieve a seamless image across all projectors is to use Edge Blend .
What is Edge Blending?
Edge blending is a technique used when using multiple projectors to display portions of the same image. To make a seamless single image, adjacent projectors must slightly overlap the edges, and to compensate for the double brightness created in these areas, the projector must selectively adjust its brightness for pixels in that overlap area.
While this may sound daunting, users can easily and intuitively adjust the overlapping areas between edge blend projectors using a video wall. Easily set up and turn on the projectors with the desired degree of overlap, then use negative numbers to adjust the bezel correction values. No scaling required.
We output a simple calibration image that allows you to get a perfect calibration of the edge overlap pixels.If the frame fix needs additional adjustment, you can switch to artistic mode and adjust each projector individually pixel by pixel using the arrow keys on your keyboard until the overlap is perfect.
- Standard PC to host videowall software
- One zero client device per projector
- As many Edge-blending projectors as you want
Clients can deploy host computer from canvas and projectors, and low downstream clients can be safely and easily mounted on the same mount as the projector.This infrastructure simplifies installation and troubleshooting.
If you combine edge blending projectors with Userful, there is no need for additional and expensive software or hardware such as blending software applications or external hardware blending components, which complicates installation and increases costs.
Projector Video Walls let you create even more seamless and unique images on a larger video wall-sized canvas that you could create with Userful, which supports up to 100 projectors from a single host PC.
Projector-based video walls open up a whole new world of visual display and can be ideal for a wide range of applications from digital signage to virtual reality and even scientific visualization. They add a new level of flexibility to video wall deployment, given that you are no longer tied to a physical display.
However, this technology is still far from mainstream, but will continue to grow as edge-shifting projectors drop in price.
Check out our 2018 Buyers Guide.
At Userful, we understand that buying a video wall can be a huge experience, so we made it our mission to provide a solution that would help simplify the implementation of video walls.
Multimedia Art Museum, Moscow | Exhibitions
The works included in the Fly to Baku exhibition reflect both the thousand-year history of Azerbaijan and the fundamental changes that have taken place in the former Soviet republic since independence in 1991. For many artists, the archaic culture of Azerbaijan with a powerful decorative, ornamental beginning becomes a starting point for constant experiments. For example, a sculptor by education Faik Ahmed uses a variety of traditional ornaments, testing their viability in modern forms and materials: aluminum, plastic, etc. Ahmed subjects the oriental carpet to endless variations, revealing a plastic resource and living artistic energy in a familiar household object.
Altai Sadykhzade uses a smooth, almost anthropomorphic volume as an ornamental module, regularly repeating form, which is equally effectively present in his sculpture, painting and graphics.On graphic sheets, this volume forms the architectural elements of the magical image of Baku, which exists more in the artist’s imagination than in reality. In the same way, the painting of Aida Makhmudova presents the viewer with a gentle mysterious city, bringing to mind the watercolor sketches made “for oneself” by Russian artists of the 1930s.
The works of Leyla Aliyeva have a different ornamental nature, referring rather to the medieval miniature, which has the character of the redundancy of oriental decor.And if Faik Ahmed seeks to decompose the dense structure of the ornament into simpler, often geometric forms, then the highly personal illustrations of Leyla Aliyeva, made in ink and ink, are evidence of the importance of art in the everyday life of the author.
Artists of modern Azerbaijan, whose art is traditionally strongly applied in the sphere and special attention to manual labor, responsible work with material, in their own way continue this line, which is important for national culture, and like, for example, Rashad Alekperov or Elyar Alimirzoev create formally impeccable installations and objects, striking even the most sophisticated professional viewer.
The Fly to Baku exhibition convincingly demonstrates that painting remains one of the basic artistic means and the forms of its “life” are completely different, and the resource for contemporary culture is constantly increasing. Adopting the best from the classical school of easel painting, Tora Agabekova, Niyaz Najafov, Farid Rasulov make painting an effective tool for analyzing current processes taking place not only in reality, but also in the consciousness of a modern person. At the same time, Orkhan Huseynov, Fakhriya Mammadova, Ali Hasanov use the latest media (video, video installations, photography), making an attempt to describe the modern social and economic space, to determine the place of a particular person in it.
Subtly feeling not only its own tradition, but also the world context (since 2007, Azerbaijan has regularly participated in the Venice Biennale of Contemporary Art), Azerbaijani artists presented at the Fly to Baku exhibition at MAMM turn out to be a living axis “east-west”, shoot geographic and mental and other barriers open up opportunities for the broadest cultural dialogue, including with the Russian audience.
How to choose a screen for a projector
Many people start building their home theater by choosing a projector model, and then they adjust everything else to the chosen projector. This approach, of course, has a right to exist, but it seems more correct to first determine the size and type of screen, and only then select a projector for it.
When choosing a screen for a home theater, first of all, you need to consider the factors that can significantly affect your choice
- viewer screen size
- screen size for projector
- type of screen design
- screen brand and manufacturer
The desire to enhance the movie experience by enlarging the screen was born at the same time as cinematography.By increasing the size of the image, its borders become unobtrusive, providing the maximum effect of presence (“immersion”).
Optically, the effect of presence is associated with the peculiarities of human vision. It occurs when a part of the image is perceived by the viewer using peripheral (lateral) vision. Unloaded peripheral vision when watching movies (or unnecessary perception of the home environment) significantly reduces the emotional experience of cinema.
It is known that a person’s peripheral vision is activated at a horizontal viewing angle exceeding 40 degrees.Based on these data, it is quite easy to calculate the screen width necessary to create an immersive effect.
But there is a pitfall in these calculations, which lies in the distinguishability of physical pixels in the image. The direct visual acuity in a normal person is on average 1/60 of a degree. If the angle between two visible points is less than this value, then they will merge, if it is greater than this value, then we will see them separately (discretely). In order to perceive the image, and not individual pixels, and to minimize the visibility of the interpixel grid as much as possible, we need to see 60 points (pixels) or more in 1 degree of angular view.Thus, in order to fulfill this condition for the FullHD (1920×1080) resolution, the horizontal viewing angle of the image should be no more than 1920/60 = 32 degrees.
In practice, it is optimal to select the width of the image lying in the range from 50 to 70% of the distance from the viewer to the screen. For fans of the front rows in cinemas, this percentage can be increased, but at the same time, one should not forget about the visibility of pixels and an increase in the luminous flux of the projector.
For example, if you know that the back of your chair will be at a distance of about 3 meters from the screen, then the optimal width of your screen should be between 150 and 210 cm.
The optical system of a projector has a number of parameters that ultimately determine what size an image the projector can create from a certain distance. The ratio of this distance to the width of the resulting image is called the projector’s throw ratio. This factor varies for different projectors from 0.3 to 8. The most common projectors currently have a projection factor of 1.2 to 2.
When choosing a projector for your home theater, you need to consider this parameter in conjunction with the above regarding screen size and determine whether it is possible to install the projector from the screen at such a distance that the image is the desired size.
In this article, we will not dwell on the aspects related to the choice of the brightness of the projector, but you can understand whether the luminous flux of the projector is enough to form an image acceptable in terms of brightness by dividing the luminous flux of the projector by the screen area and three more and evaluate the result:
- less than 50 – the image will be faded even in complete darkness
- from 50 to 100 – comfortable viewing in full blackout conditions
- 100 to 200 – viewing in partial light conditions
- more than 200 – your projector can replace
After we have decided on the size of the image and have chosen a projector that will allow us to get this image, we can proceed to the choice of the type of screen.
All screens are divided into two large groups: stationary and portable.
Since we are talking about a home theater screen, we will not consider portable screens, we will dwell on stationary screens in more detail.
Suspended spring screens
The screen is a tube that can be mounted on a wall or ceiling. The blade is pulled out of the body by a bracket fixed to the lower edge of the blade and fixed at the desired height.Thanks to the spring-loaded mechanism, the screen retracts back into the body (tube) after slightly tugging at the lower edge of the web. The vertical tension of the web is provided by a weight bar sewn into the lower edge of the screen.
- low price
- the blade is not stretched
- manual opening / closing manipulations
Electric suspended screens
The blade is raised / lowered by a silent electric motor.The screen is standardly completed with a button-switch of the electric drive. The vertical tension of the web is provided by a weight bar sewn into the lower edge of the screen.
It is important to say that electrically driven screens have such a feature as extra drop. This is additional black material above the viewport. It is used to set the projection surface to a comfortable viewing height.
- remote control capability
- concealed installation option
- the blade is not stretched
Motorized side-tensioned hanging screens
Electric screen with a perfectly smooth web.The horizontal tension is provided by graceful cables along the vertical edges of the web. The vertical tension of the web is provided by a weight bar sewn into the lower edge of the screen.
- ideal blade tension
- remote control capability
- concealed installation option
- high cost
Hanging screens, frame
Perfectly smooth canvas stretched in an elegant frame. The frame is assembled, the canvas is stretched in it and in this form the screen is hung on the wall. It can only be hidden by drapery.
- ideal blade tension
- fixed structure
Manufacturers and sellers
A fairly large number of screen manufacturers are represented on the Russian market. The best quality products (but not the cheapest) are offered by well-established manufacturers Draper, Projecta, Da-Lite, JTMotors (MW).At the same time, there are a decent number of Chinese companies on the market that offer their products under different brands, while focusing on a low price.
A projection screen is just that product on which you should not save much and sometimes it is better to pay a little more, but be sure of the quality of the canvas and accessories.
The most common defects in cheap products are sagging of the web (due to deformation of the pulley) and broken plastic parts, which must be made of metal, and the subsequent complete unsuitability of the screen for use.
