Redirecting

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 absorbing indirect ambient light.

Projector Placement for Angular-Reflective Screen

Notice to Installer:

Please use the following installation instructions to obtain superior optical performance from the ALR (Ambient Light Rejecting) Screen.

  • Angular-Reflective material is not compatible with ultra/short-throw projectors
  • Minimum lens throw ratio 1.5x image width
  • Ambient light must not come from the same direction as the projector 

 

Since angular-reflective means that the projected image will reflect at the mirror-opposite angle, it is important to position the projector so that the viewer will get the best possible image.

  • Step 1: Establish the general “eye level” of the viewers
  • Step 2: Set the appropriate projection level
  • Step 3: Adjust the screen height level and projection angle 

Input Angle (A) = Output Angle (B) aligns with the viewer’s angle

FAQ's

Q: Can I buy a small screen material sample?

A: Yes, you can buy a screen material sample by clicking here.

Q: I am interested in improving image performance (brightness, color, contrast, etc.) for projected images in a church sanctuary with high levels of ambient light. A salesperson recommended using a brighter 4700 lumen projector. Would this offer more noticeable improvement than using elite cinegray 5d screen material? 
A: 
A brighter projector (higher lumens) will help with image brightness but it does not help with color contrast or black levels.  Since the projected image performance is important here, a contrast-enhancing material such as CineGrey 5D® is essential.  White materials will reflect all of the light in the room; the projected light, indoor lighting, and sunlight through windows and doorways, everything.  Because of this, the ambient lighting will still spoil image performance even with a bright projector.  Ambient light rejecting (ALR) screens such as CineGrey 5D® filter out indirect light allowing your projected image to be what your audience will see instead of the extra glare.  In addition to that, the screen’s filter layers enhance black levels and color contrast.  This means that shadows, textures and slight variations in color shading in the projected image can be easily seen.  Without an ALR material, such detail and clarity will not be visible. As you can see from the photos below, a bright projector does not enhance contrast.

 

 

Q: I'm considering purchasing an Active 3D projector. What benefits are there in choosing the CineGrey 3D® material?
A: In general, the CineGrey 3D® material is beneficial to use with Active 3D projectors to combat the following.

  • Active 3D projectors lose brightness when 3D mode is activated (approximately 50% of lumens is lost)
  • More is lost when the active shutter glasses are put on. The dark tint of them block the projector's lighting. It's like trying to watch a movie with sunglasses on. 

The CineGrey 3D® materials helps regain brightness levels in 3D mode, in addition the higher gain allows for some ambient light to be on without washing out the projected image as typically experienced on matte white surfaces. 

The loss of brightness impacts the true home theater experience by producing a dim and bland image.  We recommend using the CineGrey 3D® for this reason.

Q: What is the advantage of having a black velvet covered frame?
A: In addition to an appealing aesthetic appearance, the advantage of having a black velvet covered frame is to help absorb projector overshoot.

Q: How well does the CineGrey 5D® or CineGrey 3D® perform in a dark room environment?

A: The CineGrey 5D® and CineGrey 3D® is great for dark room environment also, but we must understand its limitations.

First of all, both materials have narrow viewing angles.  So if you wish to have a wide seating arrangement after 80 degrees, you will notice a drop in brightness.

Second, because they are higher gain screens they reflect more projector brightness.  This may tire your eyes, so we recommend using a less brighter mode if your projector has a such setting.

If that is not a problem, then these materials will work.  And the best thing is, because they are angular reflective material, the projector’s light will not diffuse in all directions like a matte white material.  Meaning that they will not scatter the projector’s light and create side lighting. Thus, eliminating the need to absorb it with black velvet or paint a room really dark.

Third, because both of these materials are made with a neutral gray substrate, the color balance and temperature will be exceptional.  The dark gray also enhances contrast and great color saturation.

Q: I have a short throw/ultra-short throw projector, will this projector work with the ambient light rejecting CineGrey 3D®/5D™ materials?

A:  The ambient light rejecting properties of the CineGrey 3D®/5D® make the materials incompatible with short throw and ultra-short throw projects. The recommended minimum projector throw distance for these materials is 1.5 times the viewing image width. There are two main reasons behind this:

  1.  The CineGrey 3D®/5D® are high gain and angular reflective screen materials. These types of materials require proper projector and screen alignment as hot-spotting may occur if not set up correctly.
  2. Due to the CineGrey 3D®/5D® materials being angular reflective, the angle of incidence from short-throw and ultra short-throw will be too close to the material and the viewer will not experience the optimal projector/screen performance. The material will treat the projector’s light as ambient light and thus it will reject it

Q: I am assembling the Aeon Fixed Frame screen and do not see a hole for the center support however there is a center support bar included. How do I attach my center support bar?
A:
There is a hex screw that must first be inserted on the back channel of the bottom and top frames. Then, the center support bar attaches to the hex screw.

Q: I have an Ambient Light Rejecting screen but it does not seem to work. There are windows behind my projector and the picture is washed out; what can be done?
A: *Disclaimer:  
As great as ambient light rejecting screen technologies are, there are still certain laws of physics that define what should and should not be done with a specialty material such as this.

Main Answer:  Ambient Light Rejecting (ALR) projector screens are specially formatted to reject the majority of off-axis lighting from the top, bottom, and side angles. 
However if a strong light source is hitting the ALR material at roughly the same angle as the projector does, it will wash out the image.  
There is an easy solution.  I strongly recommend light blocking curtains or blackout shades to shield your room and to rely on the interior lighting that ALR screens work with.
