Has anyone tried the Carls Nano Acoustic Flexigray screen material?

I have a white acoustic screen with the Sony45ES projector. My wife hates the room being completely dark while watching a movie. It gives her a headache by the time the movie is finished.I get the best picture if the room is completely dark and when she turns on the side table lamp, it starts to wash out the color. Just wondering if this nano acoustic flexigray screen would help.

I raise ambient light with no direct light hitting the screen by having light sources on either side of the screen blocked by shades, same situation need low ambient light for spouses comfort. Granted with a white screen the black level will be worse than a gray screen so you're on the right track. The carls material may help a bit but something more aggressive like a screen innovations slate .8 or .8 acoustically transparent screen will preserve black levels better.

Whats your throw distance, screen size, and is it fixed or retractable?

At that distance with the more aggressive alr materials you'll probably have some hotspotting/sparkle as a tradeoff for the better blacks.

You should be able to get big sample packs from carls, elite, si, seymour, etc. to give you an idea of how your black level will be with different materials. Though it can be difficult to gauge hotspotting/gain artifacts with a smaller sample.
