thanks, will look into that.

Just noticed on their website it states "whisper-quiet motor operation" not sure how thats measured, but I'll have to take a drive to their show room to verify if theirs are "whisper-quiet", I might just have a defective motor!

I guess he question is almost 4x or 5x the price for the reference worth it... is the Elara that bad per say? It is an old projector.. a JVC RS1X source material will be from my Blu Ray/DVD collection and a HTPC...


Thank You!..

I owned an Elara II Grey, and now a 4k reference. If I could have seen the 4k way back when I was entertaining the idea of the Elara I would never have bought the Elara.

Hands down, my image is way way better off on the Reference. Dig deep, sell your wedding band, break the piggie bank, find a way and get the reference.

(Okay, don't sell your wedding band. But make it happen)

No regrets here other than I bought an unnecessary screen in the beginning. Love my reference 4k.

I don't own the screen, but I thought there is a tightening screw that you can tight down the slide?

Thanks for the advice.. I will probably go with the Reference then.. I think I will go with the 100"... I could go a bit bigger.. but I think this should work well as it leaves me some adjustment room...

I was looking at EluneVision for my basement. I am working on the remodel now and doing framing and insulation. At a stopping point regarding the screen because I can't decide between building a finished box up in between two joists and going with the ceiling/wall mount EluneVision (the 4K model) or taking some measurements of my spacing (exact joist locations, etc) and plan for the in-ceiling version of the same screen. The primary issue is that I don't have a ton of space between the joists because of some conduit and HVAC issues. I can probably get a 5.5" x 6" rectangle in-between the joists (inside finished space, drywall or real thin plywood finished like the rest of the ceiling w/ texture and paint).

Can anyone with the 4K model look and get some measurements of the total HxW needed to comfortably fit the on-wall version into a space? Elune says that the housing is 4 inches by 4 inches, but I can't tell how big the two mounting pieces are. Also, it 'appears' that the screen has power and control coming off the right (so stage left)? presumably the motor, height set controls and the motor control is loaded on one side?

Regarding the in-ceiling version, it's a bit more money (and a bit bigger all together) and oddly, I think it might look more commercial than just having a finished, inverted soffit between the joists. Also, with the inverted 'box' I can paint the ceiling and have it all match where the in-ceiling looks like it might be a bear to paint the plastic trim (not sure I would even try).

Any thoughts on any of this?

Thanks

So after reading up on ambient light rejection screens I decided to go with the (EluneVision Reference PureBright 4K 240 - 2.4 gain Fixed frame screen), due to the price and being available locally.   (That being said I was considering the Black Diamond 1.4 edge, DnP Blade, Elitescreens CineGrey5D and a few others.)

 

After talking to Milosh from Eastporters I went ahead and purchased the Elune Vision Pure Bright screen in 92"  After putting the screen together I was very excited to test it out.  I had high hopes with this screen being able to work with my (Benq W1080st) short throw projector.

 

I was very disappointed as the pictures below show that the screen has no better results than my current wall......  I really wanted this screen to work and with the site stating that it has ambient light rejection properties as well as getting recommended by Milosh, the screen did not do one bit of ambient light rejecting. 

 

Open to suggestions, maybe the way I set it up was wrong?  

(It would be a hassle to pack everything up and send it back..)

 

Benq W1080st is position 60inchs away from the screen, (Front On, no lens shift)

 

Picture:

1. showing screen vs my wall with no ambient light 
2. showing screen vs my wall with small night lamp on
3. showing screen vs my wall with room lights and night lamp on.
4. The box of the item.

Looking forward in what you guys think.

Before throwing in the towel, I'd get a light meter and measure the contrast and brightness differences between your two test subjects. Light rejection helps retain contrast.

Thanks for the suggestion. Ya I can measure it and everything... But If I can't even see the difference with my eye then what's the point? Maybe I was looking at too many black Diamond and other ambient light rejection demo videos, the difference is very noticeable. Also I'm an vfx artist so I definitely am able to pick up fine details like contract levels and sharpness with my eyes.
