his new installation testimonial comes from a customer in Germany who beautifully demonstrated just how easy it is to get a high-performance big screen presentation into your living space with a minimal amount of time or effort. For this installation, the customer selected an LG Presto 4K laser projector (LG HU80KA) and Elite’s Aeon Cinegrey 3D® (AR135DHD3)
Installation was really. The end user describes how it took about an hour and how the tools needed for the installation came with the screen. Since the LG Presto projector is so non-invasive, the screen had to match such convenience. The Aeon screen does this by arriving in a small, compact package that is inexpensive to ship, easy to assemble and carries the weight of a picture frame. According to the customer, whose name is Ingmar,
“The best thing about this screen, besides its awesome edge-free design, is how well it works in ambient room lighting.”
Although the installation is in a basement, there is plenty of ambient light from both the exterior storm windows and the overhead light fixtures. Ingmar directs his video camera back toward the screen to show how truly well it performs under high levels of ambient light.
“Just look at this picture; you can see how bright it is. I would recommend this to anybody.”
Normally, our case studies involve large venues, commercial applications or professional home installations but this video reminds of how fun and easy a DIY home application can be. Home theater technology is not only becoming more affordable; it is also getting easier to install. Now, bringing home the big screen has become far less complex and far more affordable than it ever was before.

About the Aeon Cinegrey® 3D (AR135DHD3):
CineGrey 3D® is a reference quality front projection screen material formulated for environments with minimial 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.
