Ruben (or anyone else with the Pro Panels),

Any chance of seeing a photo of a 2.35 (or 2.40 whichever you have) screen masked at 16:9? I'm looking into one of your screens, and trying to future-proof by planning for a CIH screen... and with the current AVS promotion it seems possible to do both!

I'd appreciate it!

Hi Mike,

Here is a picture of our 120" wide 2.35:1 ProLine masked to 1.78:1 (16:9) with our ProPanels.

You will just need to build a normal false wall in the same fashion as for a flat screen. You can see some ideas HERE

Build your wall like in the link above and make the window opening 6" smaller than the screens viewable height and the width of the window can be about 2" - 4" smaller than the viewable screen width if you are placing all three speakers behind the screen .

Once you place your order, you will get a shop drawing indicating the precise bracket mounting positions for your screen.



I never used an SVS sub but I will comment based on other subs I used in the past. I'm pretty sure the ports can fire directly into 2" 703 as long as there is enough breathing space between the sub and the wall. It shouldn't change the output of the sub. You can also face the port towards the bass trap if the sub is sitting in the center between the bass traps.

The best thing to do is to get all your treatments and speakers in place and get something like Room EQ Wizard or R plus D (if you're not using Audyssey) to get some readings on your room. You may have to move your sub around to tune the room correctly.

Ruben

I finally ordered a 110" wide 2.40:1 proline HD cineweave :-)

3 years later and I am STILL kicking myself for not ordering material when it was available. The finished screens are WAY out of my league.

Yes, it was a real gift, especially if you wanted to do something commercially unavailable like I did.

Can motorized masking be added to an SMX screen at a later time? I'm looking for a way of spreading out the cost...

Hi Greg,

We are working on a solution now for flat screens only (not curved), so the answer is yes. Plus you can order a ProLine screen now and trade it in for a masking system down the road as well. Have you seen the ProPanels?

Very nice video. The product seems to be excellent. At one point in the video I though the white screen was floating on the black background rather than the masking doing its magic.

Yeah it's incredible. I'll be using a total zooming method with four way masking (cobbled together from other manufacturers). I intend to vary the image size however I want, so that Pro Mask would be utterly perfect for me. I tossed around the idea of getting one but, even though it's price is very competitive with other manufacturers like Stewart (and does even more than theirs) I decided there was too much I could do
for my home theater with the money I'd save going with a cheaper solution.

But I'm keeping the SMX stuff in mind in case finances change in the future. It looks like SMX is really coming out with some fantastic products. The Pro Panels are a great addition, too.

BTW, SandmanX, how many pre-sets can you make on the 4 way pro mask for various ARs ans image positions?

Hi Rich,

With the ProMask-Quad you can preset 400 positions and practically endless aspect ratios.

Also on all our ProMask systems, you can jog the mask panels to any position and simply assign that aspect ratio to one of the option buttons on our remote.

Does anyone have any experience with IR receivers passing signals through a SMX screen in a light controlled room?

Currently I have my IR receiver in a position where it will be located in the upper 1/3 of a tentative SMX screen location.


I don't really want to move it, but I want it to work.


Thanks

Some IRs work but most don't. It really depends on the quality of the IR transmitter and receiver. Also, IR is quite faulty in direct bright light so placing the IR receiver in path of the light from a projector will create problems. I would recommend placing the IR outside the viewable screen perimeter for the best results.

Curious if anyone is using the CineWeave and viewing from about 10 feet away or so. Any issues with moire effect?

Ruben sends you enough screen material so that you can rotate it sufficiently to avoid it. You figure out how much by adjusting a smaller sample piece and then you do the real thing.

I thought they didn't sell the material alone anymore.

FWIW, I thought moire had more to do with screen size and projector (resolution) than seating distance.

See what an anamorphoscopic lens can do, see movies the way they were meant to be seen

You no longer need to do the moiré test. You simply just install the screen surface at the maximum degree and you are good to go. Throw distances will not effect moiré like screen size does. Small screen sizes under 70" wide is more of a concern.

I'm 10' from a 10' wide screen. I rotated the material 15 degrees. I've never seen a moire effect in any material.
