Dark Energy - 110" Installed

So over the weekend I set up my new Dark Energy Screen. The screen I had before was a cheap elite 100" (although when ordering the new screen I thought it was 110") when the lights where on the screen would get really washed out so usually we had the lights off to watch tv, for sports and a bunch of guys this was a little awkward even though no one said anything. I had fluorescent lights (bad decision) but then replaced them with Cans and HUE Light Bulbs but the image on the elite was still washed out.

So I made the call to Stephen who was extremely helpful through the entire process, and placed my order.

I run an Epson 5020 at about 12' from the wall (i know a little close for 110") but it works so far. After setting up the screen and LED lights behind it I cannot be happier with this decision. The image with the lights on is night and day. Before when I watched golf I could barely see the ball as it would get washed out. Now as you can see in the images below the ball is clear as day.

The pictures below are on dynamic with a little tweaking on the settings. I honestly don't think these iPhone pictures due it the justice it really deserves.

Pictures with Golf lights are on. Others they are off.
