Well, I was looking at the unity gain material, so hopefully that'd be tolerable in a totally light-controlled room on a 96" wide 2.35 screen with either an RS20 or a VPL-VW60. I do still need to crunch those numbers, though.

Thanks for your feedback. I'm happy to hear that you're happy with your screen!

I was wondering about mounting of a SR 2.35 2-way C-mask screen to the wall. The manual states that there are 2 L brackets and as well as 4 corner mounts. As I am having panels throughout the room, with stretch fabric, I need to know if I need blocking to support the frame and where do I put the blocking.

Does anyone have pictures of their mounting? What distances do I need? What kind of support do I need?

fyi, the stretch fabric is 1" thick throughout the room.

Sadly, Screen Research has entered bankruptcy as of October 15, 2009.

Hopefully, they will find their way through as I really love my CP2.

I think it may not be a good move to purchase from a bankrupt company. I was looking at CP2 material, but now maybe it will be SE EN4k.

It's been 9 months now and Screen Research is still pressing and providing top notch screens. We've done half a dozen theaters with SR since October, including two screens which were recently re-designed and released this Spring at ISE ( their new X mask series). They were recently featured in Home Toys and Wide Screen Review. Not sure which dates but I believe the Home Toys was for June? Looks like their French receivership (bankruptcy?) was a good financial move to restructure and weather the financial storm that has effected so much of the rest of the world. We'll continue to use SR as they have not only the best product, but great service and support. I'm always well taken care of.

I was looking at SR's site and comparing screen materials. I guess they now have a ClearPix 3 that seems to have slightly higher and more uniform gain, but at the cost of some of the acoustic transparency. Has anybody had a chance to compare with a CP 2? I have extensively auditioned the CP 2 and found it excellent. I'm wondering whether the CP 3 is considered an improvement or just an alternative.

Any word on whether ClearPix2 will support 4K resolution?

Wow! Great question! Crap, I wish I had thought of that yesterday while talking to one of their senior folks...
