Elite makes a variety of projection screen material.  Some are matte white, while others are acoustically transparent, rear projection, or ambient light rejecting.  There are even versions that you can write on with a dry erase pen.   Here they all are:

 

  • The AcousticPro 1080P2 has a matte white surface with a 1.0 gain that provides excellent color neutrality for superb color reproduction along with wide diffusion uniformity.  The angular weave material is designed to allow wall-speaker sound to breathe through the screen while eliminating the visual artifact known as moiré effect. The precision angled mesh of the material allows viewers to enjoy a visually superior presentation with strong color neutrality and artifact-free performance.  The material is perfect for use with native 1080P projectors for home cinema and commercial applications.

 

  • The AcousticPro 1080P3 is an acoustically transparent front projection material. The angular weave eliminates the moire effect while presenting warm neutral colors for today's high definition 1080P (1920x1080) projectors.  The AcousticPro1080P3 allows speaker placement behind while allowing an exceptional acoustically transparent performance.

 

  • The AcousticPro UHD (ultra-high definition) is a moiré-free self-supported acoustically transparent front projection screen material.  The dense synthetic weave is compatible with Ultra-High Definition/4K resolutions while mitigating light penetration for a brighter picture. The AcousticPro UHD design maximizes sound penetration with minimal attenuation without compromising picture quality. The AcousticPro UHD material’s wide diffusion uniformity offers a broad viewing angle with superb picture quality across the entire surface.This provides equal brightness levels on or off axis.

 

  • Elite’s AirBright 3D2 is a Polarized 3D silver front projection screen material. It is designed to preserve polarization for passive 3D Dual Projector Systems and has arguably proven itself to be the best solution for three-dimensional home theater presentations.  It provides superb brightness and contrast for either a regular 2-dimensional or full-immerision 3D imaging.  The material supports 2.0 gain reflectivity with strong black levels and a wide 120° viewing angle. These features make the AirBright 3D2 ideal for professional grade passive 3D applications in either a commercial or residential environment. 

 

  • CineGrey (Tension High Contrast Grey) is designed for low contrast DLP and LCD Home Cinema Projectors. Its superior flatness makes the CineGrey ideal for home theater use. It enhances black levels while minimizing loss in color reproduction. Uniform diffusion surface has black-backing to eliminate light penetration and is easily washable with mild soap and water. *Manufacturer's Tip: if your projector's contrast ratio is more than 2000:1, we recommend you use CineWhite material for a brighter picture.

 

  • The CineGrey 3D® is a reference quality front projection screen material formulated for environments with minimal control over room lighting.  It was designed to enhance picture brightness, offer accurate color fidelity, and improve contrast levels.  The CineGrey 3D® is best for family rooms, educational facilities, conference rooms or any applications in which incident light is a factor.  Typical matte white surfaces wash out the images when ambient light cannot be controlled.  The CineGrey 3D® is the best choice for having a projected image with a balanced color temperature and contrast under such conditions.   It provides flat spectral response for an accurate color balance in dark room environments as well for reference quality applications.  The CineGrey 3D® is ready for the next-generation of high-performance video. 

 

  • The CineGrey 5D® is an angular reflective front projection material designed to reject ambient light while maintaining superb picture quality.  The CineGrey 5D® is the perfect solution for rooms that have little or no control over incidental light.  This means that it's an ideal fit for family rooms as well as lecture halls, boardrooms, sports bars, training facilities, and other business environments. In addition, the CineGrey 5D® increases projector brightness 1.5 times the amount. This is perfect for low lumens ouput projectors!  The CineGrey 5D® is superior to traditional white or gray materials in its ability to maintain a sharp, bright image regardless  of ambient light.  The angular reflective material incorporates a diffusion layer over a highl reflective surface.  This causes direct light from the projector to reflect squarely into the viewer's field of vision while the outer contrast layer enhances image quality while reflecting indirect ambient light.

 

  • CineWhite® (Tension Matte White) has broad light dispersion through diffusion uniformity, black & white contrast and true color rendition making it the most versatile in Elite's tensions screen product lines. This tension PVC surface is the best choice for today's high-contrast ratio projectors in commercial or residential presentations. The CineWhite® material equals the performance to our MaxWhite® product, but improves the experience with the superior surface flatness.  Uniform diffusion surface has black-backing to eliminate light penetration and is easily washable with mild soap and water.

 

  • CineWhite® UHD (Tension Matte White) is a reference-grade 1.15 gain projector screen material that is certified by the world renowned Imaging Science Foundation for its superb color temperature, contrast and black level performance. It has wide diffusion uniformity that allows equal brightness levels over a 180° viewing angle.  The tension PVC material construction  has the needed pliability to maximize flatness in a “roll-up” projection surface.  The versatile properties of this material make it a natural fit with either standard or short-throw projectors. The material is also suited for either residential or commercial application. The material is easily washed using a mild soap and water solution.
