This is a great question and the answer is that the AcousticPro 1080P is made for our ezFrame, Sable, and Lunette fixed-frame projection screens and has a lower level of mean attenuation (-3.09 dB). The AcousticPro UHD is made for the VMAX Dual®, Aeon, Spectrum, Saker Tension, and Evanesce electric “roll-up” projection screens. It has a slightly higher mean attenuation of (-2.36 dB).
*Note: Mean attenuation is the average levels of transmission loss when calculated from multiple references across the audible spectrum. The lab conditions in which the measurements are taken involve a room temperature of 25° C with 50% humidity recorded over an audible range of 30-200 kHz.

- [16:57] Jaime: Hello, how may I help you?
- [16:57] Customer: Hi is the AcousticPro1080P3 material the material used on the AUHD models?
- [16:57] Jaime: the woven pattern on the materials are the same
- [16:57] Jaime: the AUHD equates to the A1080P3
- [16:57] Jaime: It helps diminish moiré : Here is a good article that describes it best: https://elitescreens.com/front/front/newsdetail/news/268
- [16:58] Jaime: the reason for the different names is that one is for our fixed frame screens and the other is for our electric “roll-up” screens. The AcousticPro 1080P is made for our ezFrame, Sable, and Lunette fixed-frame projection screens and has a lower level of mean attenuation (-3.09 dB). The AcousticPro UHD is typically made for the VMAX Dual®, Aeon, Spectrum, Saker Tension, and Evanesce electric “roll-up” projection screens but also for our Aeon series. It has a slightly higher mean attenuation of (-2.36 dB) and I recommend it more for 4K (UHD) projectors.
- [16:59] Customer: I’m considering building my own screen using that material, would I be able to do an edge wrapped wooden frame using the a1080p3 material?
- [16:59] Customer: I guess my question is, can the a1080p3 be used on a fixed frame?
- [16:59] Jaime: Yes, we make the designer cut series for that type of DIY project. It is also an AT material we use in our frame screens.
- [17:00] Customer: That’s the material I’m planning on buying, thanks.
- [17:01] Customer: What would be the major picture quality differences between AR135H2-AUHD and AR135DHD3
- [17:01] Customer: under my understanding the ar135h2-auhd uses similar material to the a1080p3 correct?
- [17:02] Jaime: The AR135H2-AUHD is an acoustically transparent material that is better for 4K projectors. The AR135DHD3 is an ambient light rejecting screen but not an acoustically transparent material.
- [17:04] Customer: Thank you Jaime! Sorry for the redundant or naive questions. This will be my first Theater experience, I love your screens, so I just want to make sure I don’t make a rookie mistake.
- [17:05] Jaime: Not a problem, I just want to make sure you get exactly what you are looking for.
- [17:06] Customer: If you happen to have a way to leave a testimonial or review regarding customer service helpfulness and responsiveness, along with product reviewing I’d love to receive an email regarding this so I can give you great feedback next week once I’ve completed my project! Have a great day Jaime.
- [17:06] Jaime: that would be greatly appreciated. You can leave reviews on Amazon and through our website here: https://elitescreens.com/front/front/cms/slug/customer-feedback
