Anti-Glare / Reflective Glass Film?

Hi AVS,

The problem I'd like to solve is the reflection of my video off of the equipment rack's glass. The rack was placed there by the previous owner, and I'd rather not move it...yet...since that introduces a litany of other problems. I'm just wondering if anyone can point me towards an anti-glare, or anti-reflective film I could place over the glass. Otherwise, I may just apply some guilford or other shear fabric that still passes IR.

Maybe I just couldn't figure out the right search terms, in the event that this Q has been posed and answered previously...my apologies if so.

Thanks, and here's a snapshot into the future via SketchUp (the equipment rack is the black rectangle, on the wall left of the screen:

Shoot, yeah forgot to mention that in the original post...tried that tonight and there's still some good reflection off of the AV gear inside. I'd prefer to keep the glass since it'll keep fan noise from the listening area down.

Then cover it completely, probably with fabric. Don't worry about IR - you can use an IR repeater system. Monoprice has one now for <$20...

Cool, I was thinking I'd eventually go the IR repeater route so that might be the kick in the pants I need. By the way, I went through your build and while the theater is definitely impressive, I think the build thread is just as great...I really appreciate all who've taken the extra time to document their work. I need to get some photos done of what I've done so far!
