  • [21:24] Customer: I need help on determining which screen is best–have ambient light in my room and the size is 22 deep and 19 wide… I was told I should get a 150-inch HDTV (16:9)
  • [21:24] Customer: Should i use your light rejecting screen material
  • [21:24] Customer: What is the model number?
  • [21:25] Customer: Would it be Cinegrey 3D?
  • [21:26]        Rick: The ambient light rejecting screen will be great for set up were the light hits the screen. We have a lot of information to go over so here is the starting question on my end; are you looking for a fixed frame or motorized screen?
  • [21:26] Customer: fixed
  • [21:26]        Rick: To answer the first question, ambient light rejecting materials would be the best bet. Either the Cinegrey 3D or 5D will do. Here is a great comparison on the matte white to Cinegrey 3D: https://elitescreens.com/front/front/newsdetail/news/394  here is the video: https://elitescreens.com/elitetube/MatteWhite_CineGrey3D_CompVideo_Web.mp4
  • [21:27]        Rick: Picking the right screen size depends entirely on the projector’s throw capability and how far you will be sitting from the screen. Here is the video on choosing the right screen size: https://elitescreens.com/elitetube/screen_size_edu.mp4
  • [21:27]        Rick: Since you are looking for a light rejecting material, in a 150” size fixed frame which I agree will fit nicely in your room, I will do a quick check on what would be best.
  • [21:28]        Rick: OK, I recommend the Sable Frame CineGrey® 3D ER150DHD3 – https://elitescreens.com/front/front/productdetail/product/31
  • 21: 28] Customer: Is that frameless or with frame
  • [21:29] Customer: Where can i buy it.
  • [21:29]        Rick: This will be best for your room set up. this is with frame.
  • [21:30]        Rick: The frameless variant  is the Aeon CineGrey® 3D: https://elitescreens.com/front/front/productdetail/product/37   AR150DHD3
  • 21: 30] Customer: Same screen material, just frameless?
  • 21: 30]        Rick: Correct
  • 21: 30] Customer: Where can i buy it’
  • [21:31]        Rick: You  can search this on your web browser and get a list of dealers with their own pricing. or you can go direct to our shop site.
