  • [18:33]        Rick: Hello, how may I help you.
  • [18:41] Customer: I recently purchased a Cinewhite screen but I more ambient light in my place than I realized. I would like the CineGrey 5d screen but I was wondering if that can be purchased without the frame since I already have that at home assembled?
  • [18:42] Customer: I have more ambient light in my room than a matte white screen can handle.
