New AccuCal Projection Screen Material Test Report

This new report adds several new materials from Elite Screens, Seymour AV, Stewart Filmscreen and Falcon. The most interesting of these new materials are the Stewart Filmscreen Cima Neve, Seymour AV Ambient Visionare 1.3, Seymour AV Center Stage UF and Elite Screens CineGray 5D.

The Cima Neve is a lower cost alternative from Stewart to a StudioTek 130. This material is not as high of gain, but it has less image artifacts as well. Neve should also help reduce the impact of wall reflections as well.

Elite Screens CineGray 5D is a lower cost alternative to a Stewart Filmscreen FireHawk 4G. It has very similar properties to a FireHawk and has higher gain along with fewer screen artifacts. A real winner for those looking for a screen to fight room reflections.

The Seymour AV Ambient Visionare 1.3 is an even higher gain alternative to the FireHawk, but it does have significant image artifacts.

The Seymour AV Center Stage UF is another very fine weave alternative to the Enlightor 4K.

It is nice to see some new materials come out that add new features and price points to products that are commonly considered by others in the market place.
