Aeon Elite screen Cinegrey 3D

Anyone try this out yet? I'm thinking of picking it up, but can't find a single review. Are they ever planning on releasing 110 inch version? Strange it goes from 100 to 120 only.

From what a few Elite reps told me, they will not have a 110" option. I currently have a 110" screen and was going to get a 110" Aeon, but I will go with 120". Since it has no edge, it actually isn't that different in terms of footprint on my wall, so I'm ok with it.

Checked with sales rep, they have a 110 in white but no plans to release 110 in Cinegrey. So strange, I guess white is a much more popular choice.

The reps are giving out incorrect info. A 110" Aeon with Cinegrey option has been added to the the model number section under the Aeon product listing on the Elite Screens website. So sad that Elite Screens' subpar customer service does not even know what is listed on their own website.

It's listed on their site, but there is no option in their shop to pick it. I've also had 3 different reps tell me that they don't have 110" as an option. Maybe they eventually will.

If this was directed at me, I'm getting the CineGrey 3D. Will be replacing a 110" Da Lite HP 2.4 screen.

That just means it's in production but they don't have enough of that size to fill orders yet. When they do, the option will become available for sale at various vendors. Thankfully I talked to one of the supervisors there via email. The customer service reps just say "no" whenever they are unsure about an upcoming option.

Probably, but who knows when they'll have it. I don't know if I'll wait that long. The footprint is only a few inches more than my current screen since the Aeon has no edge, so I will probably just get the 120".

I agree with you. Elite Screens has been slow to roll out the Aeon Cinegray screens to this point. So who knows when the 110" model with Cinegrey 3d will be released. 120" without the frame will not be that much of an increase as you suggested.

I just wish someone would purchase one of these and post a pic. It is like talking about a black hole every week at this point. We know they exist, but one one has ever seen one.

I'm very close to purchasing. Probably this weekend. Just wanted to get an idea of how difficult it will be to sell my current screen, first.

Will definitely have pics posted when I get it.

For those that mentioned wanting to buy on Amazon, they have very limited stock of the 100" Aeon screen in CineGrey 3D.

AEON 100" CineGrey 3D

I just received my new screen. Purchased it from Focused Technology and it was backordered for about a month in order to get the CineGrey finish. I am pairing this up with a Epson Cinema HD 3500 since I do not have a great light controlled room during the day. Here are a few pics of it mounted and I used the felt strip to add a 15mm edge to absorb and overshoot. I will post images once the projector is installed (hopefully tomorrow if I have time) of use with lights on and without after I have it set up and adjusted for you all to take a look at. I also have the LED kit for the sides of it that I need to install. Cheers - Scott

Very cool.

Was the velvet bezel easy to apply? I was worried about being a little off and not being able to peel it back for fear of messing up the material.

I ordered the 120" on Amazon. They don't have them in stock, but they finally put up a link at least to order so at least I don't have to obsess about it anymore lol. Whenever they get them, they'll ship. Going to order the LED kit, but since it's in stock, I'll wait until the screen is actually in stock. No sense having lights sitting around until then.

This is what I've been waiting on, it looks really nice. Question, how does the quality seem to you? Seen reviews on amazon from some stating the frame doesn't seem to be very straight (flat). I would like to get a 100-inch for my gaming room i'm trying to set up.

Displays: JVC RS4910 Projector | 125-inch 2.35:1 Elite Cinetension2 Screen | Panasonic 58V10 Plasma TV

Yes the velvet was really easy. It comes as a roll about 30mm wide so I just split the difference and folded over the extra to sort of hide the side of the screen better. I think it took me about 45 minutes to build the entire screen. I do recommend having a helper that can hold the frame while you stretch the material at the corners because it is extremely tight. My thumbs were hurting by the time I was done.

The quality seems really good in my opinion. The assembly was very straight forward and all my corners lined up near perfectly. It was less than 1mm out of perfect square (can't notice). The velcro channel that you stretch the screen into on the backside is very quality also and looks great when built out.

Here is a picture with the backlighting finished. I used a brand called LAVOLTA that I purchased at Parts Express online. It has a nicer remote and a larger power supply (6A) so you can attach more than one 16' roll of LED lights. 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....

Up and running with Epson 3000 Cinema HD.....

Here are some pics for you guys. I have to say that I am extremely impressed with this screen and projector combo! The pictures as you can see show that in the morning time I have an unbelievable amount of ambient light coming in through my windows (atrium style house). The washout is less than my older Samsung rear projection HD by far, and I am showing you in Living Room Color Mode versus Dynamic which does make it brighter. Take a look and see for yourselves. Installation took me about 2 hours of alignment (I have less than 2mm gap in one corner I could try to fix with Keystone Correction eventually)

Next project....

SO now that I have the screen and all the audio working it is time to ask all of you guys for the BEST possible software I can use for a dedicated remote control. These are the items that I want to incorporate into an iPad. I am an Apple guy, so my plan is to order the new iPad Pro in the next week once preorders are available and use it for the room.

* Lutron Controlled LED can lights for the room, using my iPad or Phone currently
* A water fountain, Lutron outlet controlled by iPad or my Phone currently.
* Onkyo TX-NR646 Receiver w/Dolby Atmos
* Sony Blu-Ray player, model BDP-S6500 w/4K Up Conversion
* The new Apple TV once available (a few weeks I think)
* Charter Cable Box
* Screen Backlighting controlled with Lutron outlet (currently use my iPad or Phone)
* Remote controlled home theater curtains I will get soon to keep my kids from touching the screen.

Open to other ideas that might be cool to add if you guys have some recommendations. Thanks!

Pretty good picture with sunlight streaming in, awesome picture at night! Would love to see a photo at night with the LEDs.

Canceled my order of the screen with Amazon and ordered form Elite, but on Amazon yesterday. Don't know if it was a mistake or a one day sale, but the 120" Aeon with CineGrey 3D was cheaper on Amazon (fulfilled by Elite) than it was on Elite's own store. The price dropped in general for the 120" with CineGrey 3D by $100 in general, but it's no longer $140 cheaper on Amazon as compared to Elite. They are the same $100 cheaper price now. Cancelled the original order because it was about $200 cheaper when you consider that Elite wasn't charging tax and Amazon was.

Screen should ship today. Hopefully it comes fast. I will order the light kit when it ships, since that's Prime, and they can get to me at the same time. Will post my impressions and pics when it arrives.
