[17:45] Rick: Hello, how may i help you. [17:45] Customer: I’m looking to spec a screen [17:45] Customer: in ceiling [17:46] Customer: It is for my living room [17:46] Customer: It will mostly will be used at night [17:46] Customer: But the walls and ceiling are white [17:46] Customer: …and people will be sitting both in front and to the side [17:46] Rick: Okay i have one series that I can recommend. are you looking to have it mount on the wall, ceiling or concealed in the ceiling? [17:47] Customer: Looking for around 120″ or slightly larger [17:47] Customer: In-ceiling [17:47] Rick: Okay. I have one that will be best choice and the largest is a 120″ screen. [17:47] Rick: https://elitescreens.com/front/front/productdetail/product/127 [17:48] Customer: I was curious about the CineGrey 5d [17:48] Rick: That material is designed for rooms that don’t have a lot of light control but they are excellent for dark room performance as well. [17:49] Customer: I have windows but it also opens up to the rest of the house [17:49] Customer: I’m concerned about black levels [17:50] Rick: If you have some control and mostly going to be used in the night time a standard white screen will be the best choice. also, the Cinegrey 5D has a narrower view angle of 80 degrees as the white is 180 degrees. [17:52] Customer: That is what I was concerned about, the narrow viewing angle. [17:52] Customer: Does it come in a larger drop? [17:53] Customer: Want at least 12″ [17:53] Rick: For the 120 drops is only 8 inches. [17:53] Customer: Are there other options [17:54] Rick: Certainly, one moment please. [17:55] Rick: I do have our standard evanesce series that has a 126″ diagonal screen with 20-inch drop that you will be able to adjust and reduce the drop up to 12 inches. [17:56] Rick: model is IHOME126HW2-E20 [17:57] Customer: Looks good. Do you have an online search resource that I can modify and do my own product searches? [17:58] Rick: I certainly do.
