Aeon CLR® 2 Series

Award_winning
ISF Certified Products

The Aeon CLR® 2 is an EDGE FREE® ceiling and ambient light rejecting (ALR/CLR®) projection screen. It specializes in negating the washout effect caused by overhead and other off-axis light sources. This technology allows the CLR® 2 material to display true image brightness, color saturation and contrast for superior picture performance. As an added value, the CLR® 2 has superb black-white dynamic range over a non-textured, smooth surface that enables compatibility with 4K/8K resolution projectors. The CLR® 2 features a durable scratch-resistant coating that is easy to clean and will protect the material through many years of use. This screen material is designed for use with ultra-short throw table-top configurations as well as short throw projector arrays. An ultra-thin bezel enhances the aesthetics by providing that giant flat panel TV appearance at a fraction of the cost.

Aeon Series FAQ’s

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?
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?

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’d like to buy an Aeon CLR® 3 screen but my UST projector is 120 inches. I notice that your screens are oversized by a few inches such as 103” versus 100” or 123” vs 120”. In my case for example, I do not want an empty screen section, but the image to go all the way to the border of the screen. Can you advise?

In my case for example, I do not want an empty screen section, but the image to go all the way to the border of the screen. Can you advise?

Most ultra-short throw projectors despite claiming they can go up to a certain size, if they have a focus adjustment should be able to adjust the picture to 103” (if a 100” UST projector) or 123” (if a 120” UST projector) and fill in the entire screen area. In some cases, certain UST projectors that have a fixed focus lens can go up to 103” and 123” with minimal impact on the picture and allowing to fill in the screen size.

General Fixed Frame Screens FAQ’s

Q: What is the advantage of having a black velvet covered frame?
Q. What is the advantage of having a black velvet covered frame?

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

Q: Where do I place the center support bar for a fixed frame screen?
Q: Where do I place the center support bar for a fixed frame screen?

Center support bar for larger size fixed frame screens goes inside the top of the groove located on the back of the frame.

Q : Can I flush mount my fixed frame screen directly to the wall/ceiling? I would like the top of the frame to be exactly where the ceiling and wall meet.
Q : Can I flush mount my fixed frame screen directly to the wall/ceiling? I would like the top of the frame to be exactly where the ceiling and wall meet.

Elite Screens does not recommend attempting such an installation as in most cases it would not be possible. This is because the frame has to be lifted directly above and then placed down onto the brackets. The brackets will then latch onto the grooves of the frame and hold it in place. Mounting the wall brackets flush to the wall and ceiling would not provide the clearance needed for the frame to be lifted above the brackets. Elite Screens recommends the wall brackets be placed no closer than 4-6”(depending on the thickness of the frame) below the ceiling as that ditstance would give you the clearance needed to lift the screen above and then onto the brackets.

CLR® 2 – Screen Material FAQ’s

Q: I plan to purchase a CLR®/ CLR®2/ CLR® 3 material, but want to use a ceiling mounted UST projector. Can I flip and install the CLR/CLR2/CLR3 upside down to make this work?
Q: I plan to purchase a CLR®/ CLR®2/ CLR® 3 material, but want to use a ceiling mounted UST projector. Can I flip and install the CLR/CLR2/CLR3 upside down to make this work?

Ceiling mounted UST projector will not work with CLR®/ CLR® 2/ CLR® 3 flipped upside down because the material is specifically oriented to reject “absorb” lighting from above. In addition it is designed to properly accept tabletop mounted UST projector light and direct it to the viewer’s sweet spot. If the material is flipped upside down and there is overhead light, that light will not be rejected but instead reflected which would degrade the picture quality. In addition, the ceiling mounted UST projector light will still not likely align properly with the human eye to deliver the ideal “sweet-spot” picture performance.

Q: I have a new UST projector in my multi-purpose room with very good light control. Considering to buy a StarBright CLR®/CLR® 2/CLR® 3 or CineGrey 3D/5D® screen. What is the difference?
Q: I have a new UST projector in my multi-purpose room with very good light control. Considering to buy a StarBright CLR®/CLR® 2/CLR® 3 or CineGrey 3D/5D® screen. What is the difference?

CLR®/CLR®2/CLR®3 and CineGrey 3D/5D are Ceiling Ambient Light Rejection Screen fabrics, however the CLR fabrics are especially designed for Ultra Short Throw (UST) Projectors to reject ambient light. The CineGrey 3D/5D are typically made for standard “long-throw” projectors and require the projected light (angle in) to reflect (angle out) at the same angle to the viewer’s eyes, “sweet spot”.

Q: How about using any “CLR/ALR” (Cinegrey®3D/5D or Starbright CLR®/CLR® 2/CLR® 3) with a ceiling-installed UST/ST projector?
Q: How about using any “CLR/ALR” (Cinegrey®3D/5D or Starbright CLR®/CLR® 2/CLR® 3) with a ceiling-installed UST/ST projector?

Ceiling mounted UST projectors will not even work with Starbright CLR® materials because the material is specifically orientated to reject “ceiling light” or any type of lighting from above. This means that the screen will reject any overhead light, even from a compatible projector. Theoretically, you could invert the Starbright CLR® material to match with an inverted UST projector but the alignment will still not likely align properly with the human eye to deliver the ideal “sweet-spot” picture performance.

Q: I own an Aeon CLR/CLR2/CLR 3 fixed frame screen and notice a halo effect/light spill around the UST screen. How can I remedy this?
Q: I own an Aeon CLR/CLR2/CLR 3 fixed frame screen and notice a halo effect/light spill around the UST screen. How can I remedy this?

The steep light from an Ultra-Short Throw projector causes the halo effect and can spill light around the frame. There is no way to solve it, but it can be mitigated by painting your wall a darker color, or putting a velvet border around the screen frame.
