There are 2 options, one is the Regular Matt finish and the 3D Cinegrey Ambient Light rejecting material. I prefer to use the 3D Cinegrey material since I watch 3D movies but mainly 2D. With regards to the room lighting, It is about 90% light controlled room. My only worry is, if I buy the 3D Cinegrey material, Will I have a bad image during the night when I watch movies or will that be fine even in a dark room.

Thanks in Advance.

Keep in mind a few things - the Cinegrey "3D" will make practically no difference when viewing 3D movies compared to a normal white screen in a dark room. It is not a special material designed for 3D viewing. The material is designed to give better brightness and contrast in a room that has ambient light. Keep in mind, the light must be ambient. This screen works by only reflecting light back perpendicularly form the projector. If you shined a light on the same path that the projector's beam shines, you'll have an extremely washed out image. Light coming in from the top or sides will not be reflected back to the viewing position. Hence, the "angular light reflecting technology".

Now - this enhanced brightness and contrast MAY help a 3D movie to look a little brighter compared to a white screen if you are watching a 3D movie with some light on in the room.

In a completely dark room, this screen should be about the same as a white screen. You shouldn't have any degraded image quality if the room is dark. Perhaps other users with some more experience can provide more information on how the Cinegrey looks with the lights off, but you really shouldn't see any difference compared to a white screen.

Apologize for double post. Can't seem to figure out if I can delete it. Any tips?

Hi guys.

I'm also considering purchasing a Elite Aeon screen. The question I have is similar to the above Cinewhite vs Cinegrey. The room I'm planning to use is in a basement but 1 wall wide opens up to a open yard (3 windows and 1 glass door). I plan to have plantation shutters installed on the door and windows which will block out about 90 percent of outside light. I also do plan to paint the room's walls a matte grey and keep the ceiling mostly white. We plan to keep this room more as a living space instead of a dedicated dark theater room. I do not have plans to watch any 3D either.

My question is what do most consider "ambient light"? Or should I ask when do I choose the grey over the white?

I envision most of the watching will either have some light bleeding in from the shutters during the day or some dimmer recessed light on during the nights.

Room space is about 15 x 20.
Projector that i'm considering is a W1070 which will be ceiling mounted.
I'm considering a 120 or 135 screen but won't know until I get the projector staged.

Any recommendations would be great!

I plan to upload pictures and share the setup once things are done.

Elite renamed the Cinegrey 5D. It's the same material with a new name. (Info is straight from an Elite Rep.)

Does elite not have a 106 or 110 inch option for the Aeon? That seems strange.

Quick questions folks, just picked up and installed a motorized spectrum series 110 inch elite screen and thought I read something about there being a way to program a stopping point for the screen so that it doesn't roll all the way down, does anyone here know if this is correct? Thanks
