Epson 3500 with ES Aeon 110 or Silver Ticket 110 ALR

Hi,

I just went through the whole thread and for a rookie buying his first projector, it was like candy for a kid. Very impressive setups and im planning to hop on that bandwagon.

After more than 8 month of flirting with and studying this project, I've opted for an Epson 3500 combined with an Elite Scree Aeon 110 (1.1 gain, 469$) OR a Silver Ticket ALR 110 (1.5 gain, 399$). I would appreciate anyone's opinion to choose between both. Many have been praising the Silver Ticket product (high build quality, especially). However in both cases, I will have to get it shipped to Montreal, which will cost me more.

Im a proud condo owner, nice little (big) place with cathedral 17-20 feet ceilings. (need 2 more posts before I can post pics) I will be shooting on a (huge) wall from a 17,5 feet distance, placing the Epson across my living room, on a tablet on top of my LCD tv.

If I go with the Silver Ticket, I will most likely build a plywood from on which I would put the screen, to be able to roll around it some LED lights. Im currently searching for good battery operated LED kits in order to avoid having the power supply cable showing anywhere near my screen.

Thanks in advance for your help in making my project a great one !

Has anyone put up a LED strip on the AEON frame? If so How did you do this? Do you have pictures and or steps you took?

Thanks

Is Anyone still following this thread? I decided to change gears and opt to build my own frame with the cinegray 3d material. Amazon has it for 94 bucks. The reason being is I prefer 2:35 aspect and you cannot buy the aeon with the cinegray 3d in that format. It will be a zero edge design as well.

which aspect ratio? Do you have a light controlled room? That is where im having issues with it. If completely dark the cinewhite does a great job...

16:9. It's light controlled but i want the ability to have some ambient light at times. I talked to an Elite Screen Reps and gave them a pic of my room. They recommended Cinegrey so i'm exchanging.

Which screen did you end up getting? Did you install the LEDS? How do you like the 3500?

How much ambient light do you get? How big is the room and what color are the walls?

Also would you be able to provide pictures or even a video of it being use with the screen exposed to sunlight and without.

Also please update on your process of you adding LED to it.

My screen is in a open loft area upstairs which has a large window on one side as well as rooms behind the loft with windows as well. The wall directly behind the screen is dark brown while the rest are a creme color. I could not convince the wife to paint the rest any darker. Here are a few pics ... The one was in broad daylight with all windows open which would be a worse case scenario as it is very bright in the room. I installed a subframe to install the LED lights very very simple. I love this screen!!

Great pics! Do you have any pics of the back of the screen with the LEDs? I am not sure how to install them?

I did order the JVC DLA-RS400 then so I'm pretty sure this screen will look even better in a few days.
what is your take on the JVC Projector? I just ordered one myself.

I recently got my Cinegrey 3d with the Epson 5030ub, so far I have mix feelings about it. When there's ambient lighting in the room, the picture is great, but when the room is dark, I feel like the picture isn't bright enough. The picture is 2x-3x brighter when I project it on just a plain wall. Is it normal for the picture to be darker with the grey screen?

Datplayaz,
which version do you have? Aeon or sable frame?
In case of sable frame, I read somewhere that it is possible to attach the screen material with the wrong side towards the viewer.
Maybe there is a chance that this causes the big hit to brightness you mentioned?

I am also trying to decide between cinegrey 5d or 3d 110 inch. My throw ratio is 1.55 so I think I will go with the cinegrey 3d, I think the 5d would be brighter but more prone to hotspotting.

Why can't I find a succinct comparison between the cinegrey 3D vs. 5D?

Thats a good question.
I have screen samples here for cinegrey 5D and 3D.
It is hard to tell the difference between the two, at least for me.
MAybe the 5D sparkles a bit more.

I've all but decided that for my first ( and arguably "test') screen that I'm going with the Cinegrey 3D. (best price/performance combo, assuming I can find one in stock anywhere)
Both the Epson calculator and the Elite calculator for the 3D screen indicate that a throw length of 13'8" and 14'6" respectively are the minimum for a 135" screen (14.6 ft as per elite for the actual cinegrey 3D at 135" diagonal)

Although I'm technically at the minimum throw spec for both the PJ and the Screen--I'm still worried about hotspotting and overall PQ issues.
Think I'll be ok?

Hi there, I refused to get the samples because they wanted to charge me $45 for shipping to canada...crazy!
But I found a great deal on Amazon for the Cinegrey 3d material and I went for it...
It's definitely performing better than my BlackWidow painted screen, but not even close to the Da-Lite Parallax 0.8 sample they sent me.
That thing is crazy, and crazy expensive too (4k for a 77"!)

My question for you is, since you tried both 3D and 5D, do you think the 5D combats ambient light better than the 3D?
If you could even take a comparison picture, I would be eternally grateful...


Here are some pictures. The blackwidow in the back, the Cinegrey 3D is (badly) stretched with some tape, and the small square material is the Parallax.

There is a LED chandelier on, the room is pretty bright.

The Cinegrey 3d definitely is better than BW, mostly because is retains blacks a bit better, but doesn't kill the whites at all.
The Parallax is crazy, even in day light it looks like a plasma, BUT the viewing angles are terrible. If I move to the side of the sofa, the gain is already a half!

Oh and here a pic of the Parallax in bright day light. I mean blinds fully open at 2PM.
Screen is Black Widow, Parallax is the small square.

I just put my elite screen up with led lights behind it on plywood! I think it looks ok, it's just an unfinished basement, but I can't wait to get a projector now... any suggestion on what else I should do... I was thinking black drape cloth in front of the brick wall...

!
I would say the light rejecting properties are about the same. The cinegrey 3d is a very little bit darker than 5d when placed in the center of the screen and projecting a white image. However when you step around in the room and look onto both samples at a very non optimal angle the 5d is darkening stronger than the 3d. So the 3d has just a little less directivity properties. A little less bright a little less sparkle a little less prone to hotspot. I think one user pointed this out already before me.
Maybe i will just put some black cloth onto my ceiling as I am mostly interested in fighting the scattered light at night. Daylight projection is not my personal motivation to buy an alr screen.

And sorry I can not take photos of the samples right now because a colleague of mine borrowed the samples to try them out.

I think you bought the designer cut edition of the cinegrey 3d, right?
do you also have the possibility to compare between cinegrey 3d and a matte white screen?

After the comment of user datplayaz I have the fear that the CG 3D picture will finally be very dark compared to matte white.
However some earlier comments by stuntman_mike and swolepile are more positive about this.
Especially swolepile used the cinewhite 3D together with an HW40 on low bulb.

As far as I understood you compared between black widow (which should be a regular grey screen without alr properties?) and cg 3d.
Which projector are you using and how is your screen size and most important: How is your throw ratio?

My throw ratio is somewhere between 1.5 and 1.6. I am using a HW65 with a 110" cinewhite ezframe.

I just realized that I had already taken some shoots of the two samples:

Top: CG 3D
Bottom: CG 5D

Notice the greater brightness drop off of the CG 5D.
White is also a bit warmer on the CG 3D I have the feeling.
But maybe the 5D is just a bit cold?

Hope you find it useful and the pictures are not too big for the forum.

But maybe the 5D is just a bit cold?

Hope you find it useful and the pictures are not too big for the forum.
Can anyone recommend a good set of LED lights that would fit around the 100" Aeon Screen? Or should I just purchase the Elite brand LED lights? Thanks!

I also like the fact that the LED lights are sealed with a clear rubber over them so it makes a nicer finish when done. The picture is with max brightness and I need to probably add some more velvet up top to reduce the light bleeding up and reflecting off the ceiling and crown moulding. Its a work in progress....
The pink color was my 5 year old daughters doing....
Looks awesome! How many strands of the LED's did you need? I am considering the 110" and would like to go a similar route. Thanks!

I did a pine 1x4 frame with a 2x4 off set frame to give it a 3.5 inch off set off the wall. I have some LED ribbon for back lighting that I will put on a wall switch, so I only have to mess with the remote to change colors.
I used pocket screws and glue to avoid having to get hardware. It came together great. The joints turned out cabinet grade.
I still have to round over the edges so I do not rip the Cinegrey 3D. The screen came in yesterday, but this is a Christmas present to my family, so I probably will not attach the screen until Christmas eve. Right now it is in the garage, but no one really knows what it is.
We are pairing this with the Epson 2040 that I picked up for a deal on black Friday.
These are the led lights I bought https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
