I shot Chris an email, but you guys might be able to answer this.

If I get a 2.35 fixed frame screen (straight, not curved) with XD material. Can I get two sets of AT masking panels? One that would mask to 1.85 and one set that would mask to 1.78? I'm not sure if they are flexible on their masking panels or if they always do them for 1.78 only.

You can certainly get two sets of AT masking panels, although they would only be 2" different for each ratio (15.8"w each for 16:9, 13.8"w each for 1.85).

In theory we could make one set panels movable with alternate magnet locations to cover both ratios, although since you're only talking 2" differences, our wide magnets would need to be narrowed. Other disadvantages include losing the side magnets and seeing the screen if a 1.85 mask were moved inward for 16:9 masking. I'll assume I don't need to look into this idea further unless you insist.

Cheers,
Chris

So what's a guy gotta do to actually get a sample of the UF material? I filled out your online request form before the new year and received a reply on 1/2/15 asking for my mailing address. I replied and haven't heard anything since. I sent a follow up email to Jon on 12/12/15 and also filled out another online request with my mailing address included. So far no communication and three weeks of disappointment at my mailbox. Queue sad horn: Wah...Wah

I need to decide soon whether changing my regular Screen Innovation screen to an AT screen will degrade my picture. Please help!

Ps. Don't feel bad as I also sent a request to Falcon Screens and haven't heard anything either.

Installed an XD screen and I am very pleased with results. Going through with the audio calibration in the next couple of weeks.
Good product and if I was to do again probably by the upgraded frame.

Jon told me your sample is going out tomorrow. Sorry he's behind. I flog him daily to catch up but ironically Friday he spent hours putting together sample packs (for reps).

When Rich / Falcon requested samples from me for a "project" he had going on I sent them out the next day. When I heard of his "project" and requested reciprocation of samples, he didn't reply to me either. I have several far more classy and literate competitors, so would help you with them if the situation or your desire wanted.

Cheers,
Chris

Thanks for sending me a sample Chris. I can't wait to see if an AT screen will work for me. I am REALLY hoping it will! have a terrific evening!

Thumbs up

Ordered a XD 130" 2.35 screen on 1/9 and got confirmation of order on same day. The wait is killing me as everything else is coming in now; projector, AVR, speakers, lighting, etc. Oh the pain.

Will the XD material work well for 4K at 12' viewing distance? I need an AT screen with as little loss of gain as possible and this screen is tested and performs well (but tested I think at 1080).

Work? Are you asking if the image will have nominal perceived resolution or if it will moiré? Both depend to some extent on the size of the screen your projector will be filling, and your visual acuity.
