I have no idea about the SMX screen. I will take a look at it again, but it looks to be better than the Seymour screen with a finer pattern. I think both looked better than the Stewart acoustic screen. I could see the perfs on the Stewart at six or seven feet. Honestly, the SMX screen during the demo was the first time I have ever seen an acoustic screen that I thought was good enough to use. I know I had an issue with Ruben when he first started, but water under the bridge. He really has done a nice job with this screen. Oh, if you go to the demo, then be ready for a loud demo. The Cinepro guys had the volume turned up. It wasn't uncomfortable, but I heard some say they would have liked it to be lower.
On LEDS, I think I saw all of them except the Runco, but Darin talked to the Runco guy for about fifteen minutes. They look nice, but there not ready for prime time. Almost everyone admitted that they just wanted to get something out the door. I believe everyone said the same thing, wait till next year to see what we do.
