AT Fixed Screen that's gray?

I'm looking for an Acoustically Transparent screen that's gray. I don't like the shine that ALR screens have so I'm more looking for something that's matte and gray in color. DIY would be the last option if nothing is available.




Thanks!

I just ordered a Screen Innovations Zero Edge Pro with the AT Slate 1.2 material. The price about gave me a coronary, but the image is incredible. My theater room in my new house has an open back wall, so I wanted to make sure I had something where the picture would really pop - even with ambient light. I hope it ends up being worth it.

By definition true matte screens are lambertian, so a true matte white screen can't exceed 1.0 gain. An AT screen loses gain due to perforations, so even a true matte white AT screen will have <1.0 gain. A true matte grey AT screen will lose even more gain depending on how dark a shade of grey. So if you are looking for a true matte grey AT screen you should specify how much reduced gain you're willing to tolerate given your projector's lumen output, screen size, viewing environment and user preference for image brightness.
