Who is considered to now have the best 1.0 gain economical screen material? Elunevision Reference Studio 4K 100? Elite Cinewhite?

Manufacturing issue I believe. Hopefully they can bring it back.

Take a look at the Elunevision 4K. I've heard it's very good for the money.

Have you seen a sample of the Elunevision 4K 100? I hear it's very good.

It would be great if they could offer other materials with the right grommet spacings for existing frames. I was thinking of switching to CCW from BW last year, but am currently working on an AT plan. AVS or Seymour material etc would be a great option since they don't have an AT option themselves.

Does anyone have a video of their Carada screen that I can view? Especially with the BW screen. I'd love to see what it looks like with the projector running on it.

A picture (via camera with unknown characteristics) uploaded (not full res) and displayed on your computer screen (calibrated or not?) may not tell you what you want to know about the screen. Seeing the screen compared with other screens might give a relative sense. Comparing samples of various screens can also be helpful.

So, while everyone shares screen shots to show various setups or other features it may not be very helpful for comparing screens.

I went ahead and ordered the 126" 16x9 BW screen last week. How quick are they usually on getting the shipment out? I placed my order on Thursday and have not received a shipping confirmation. I am definitely spoiled by free two day shipping from most companies nowadays.

Have you contacted them? They've always responded quite quickly to every email I've sent. IIRC, they also have live support chat during the day.

Looky here!

I did and they just got back to me. Looks like they may have overlooked sending me the shipping notification as it was sent yesterday. Shipping is quick, looks like i'll get in Thursday. Too bad I won't have the projector until another week or two.

Terrible news, guys! Carada is discontinuing their MMS (Masquerade Masking System) until further notice. Yesterday, I spoke to David at Carada and he basically said there aren't enough orders to make the MMS a feasible endeavor for the company, so they are discontinuing it. I was told to check back later in six months or so to see if anything has changed. In my opinion, he didn't sound very confident in a return for the MMS, so I'm not gonna get my hopes up.


Man...I was heartbroken when I heard this because I was planning to purchase the Horizontal MMS when I completed my deployment in MAR 2017. It was going to be an integral part of the home theater I'm building. Had I known it was going to be discontinued, I would have purchased it months ago when I was researching and made the decision to purchase it. I looked at the Da-Lite Masking System, but in my humble opinion, the Carada MMS looks better designed, especially for the awesome price they were charging for it.


Anyway, I just wanted to pass this along, just in case there are others out there who had planned to purchase the Carada MMS. Sad, sad day (for me at least)...

I would have liked to have one too, but it was too expensive for me. I did suggest a manual system, one where the top and bottom panels would move together, assuming that would be less expensive to sell, but I guess it didn't seem like a profitable idea.

So I use the manual system I built with the panels sliding up and down on tension rods, however each gets set seperately.

See ya. Dave

I'll probably end up going that route as well. Didn't you have a thread showing your build?

Yes. I found it and bumped it in the DIY screen subforum.

Still works great and accomplishes it's mission.

See ya. Dave
