  • [21:30]        Rick: Hello, how may I help you.
  • [21:30] Customer: Hi, I had a quick question
  • [21:31] Customer: Does the ezframe2 series come also in Cinegrey 3d?
  • [21:31] Customer: I see it comes in Cinewhite
  • [21:32] Customer: I’m wanting to buy the 120 fixed frame
  • [21:32] Customer: I’m interested in the elite2
  • [21:32]        Rick: The Cinegrey 3D is on the Sable frame 2 series. and the Ezframe 2 provided the cinegrey 5D
  • [21:33] Customer: for a smaller windowless dark room of 12 x 14 ft, using Sony 4k 285es projector, which would be better
  • [21:33] Customer: It has 1500 lumens but only 100000:1 contrast ratio
  • [21:34]        Rick: for this projector the Cinegrey 3d will work and the model you need is the ER120DHD3
  • [21:35] Customer: I realize it has the 3d option, but will I lose the gain by going cinegrey vs white?
  • [21:36]        Rick: here is a list on the gain. from lowest to highest.
  • [21:36]        Rick: CineGrey – 1.0 (matte grey), Cinewhite – 1.1 (matte white), Cinegrey 3D -1.2 (ambient light rejecting gray material) – Here is a great comparison of matte white to CineGrey 3D – https://elitescreens.com/elitetube/MatteWhite_CineGrey3D_CompVideo_Web.mp4
