I will check and let you know. They were already there and installed on the Frame as instructed when I arrived to paint the screen. me...all i had to really do was Sip beer, Squirt paint, and do a little sanding between the 3rd coat and the last 2 coats.

Yes...for selected apps that require absolute maximum ambient Light resistance, there are uber dark SF versions ( 6.0+) but you must still have a minimum of 2400 lumen to use them effectively. Otherwise, there now exists a SF v2.5 3.0 HG version that is a mi- level Gray of approx N7.5 in appearance, yet maintains a gain level of approx1.3.
As far as "S-I-L-V-E-R", such a "HG" version has existed for a spell now, and simply uses a slight;y higher percentage of Silver Metallic (10% vs 5%) and preferably a SM with a finer granularity aspect .

Depends upon the type of screen, the degree of reflection from such lighting that can reach the Screen surface, and just how well everything is all put together.
Such an Edge Lit effect is both pleasing for many to see, and allows for a higher level of light in a darkened room, but with the light source behind the screen's plane of reflection. Light can reflect, but without the influence of a Singularity or large Galaxy, it cannot "bend". So the light around the back edge can only really serve to enhance, not detract for a Screen's performance.
Unless the ceiling or side walls are too close, they are colored too light, and the Back lighting is too bright. The example shown is VERY bright, and despite some effort being made to mitigate the ceiling Reflections, the lighting will eventually get a "LED friendly" Dimmer switch to mute that Sun-like corona.
