The AcousticPro-4K has an ultra-white front projection screen surface with a 1.1 gain that provides excellent color neutrality for superb color reproduction along with wide diffusion uniformity. The angular weave is designed to handle 4K (4096x2160) and 1080P (1920x1080) projectors while eliminating the visual artifact known as moiré effect. The dense mesh of the material with its ultra-fine perforations creates a projection canvas that almost identically resembles our best-selling and award winning CineWhite material. The virtual absence of the acoustic perforations means sound is not compromised and a clear sonic transparency is achieved.

Q: How far should I place my speakers behind Elite’s AcousticProA1080, AcousticProA1080P2 & the AcousticProA4K (Acoustically Transparent) screen materials?
A: projection screen mounted flush against the wall over a properly installed in-wall speaker will have a sufficient distance by itself. There will generally be about a 1” total distance between the speaker’s dust cap (depending on make/model) and the screen with a 5mm (.2”) spacing between an in-wall speaker’s grill and the AT screen material itself. However, if a sub-woofer is going to be placed in front of an acoustic transparent electric screen, please allow a minimum of 5-6 inches so the rumble of the speaker does not cause the material to move.
Q: Will I sacrifice picture quality using Elite’s AcousticPro4K (4K resolution Acoustically Transparent) screen material?
A: All acoustically transparent materials on the market today are light enough in thickness to allow sound to penetrate it with low-level attenuation (decrease in sound quality) but normally come at the cost of having considerable light loss as well. Elite’s AcousticPro 4K acoustically transparent (AT) material is an exception to this rule. It has an astonishingly fine (.03mm) micro-perforated texture that allows sound to breathe through the fabric with minimal attenuation. At the same time, it allows the video aspects of the material to perform on the same level as a typical matte-white (non-acoustic) material does. The ultra-fine perforations of the Acoustcpro 4K “AT” material allows it to be used with high resolution (4096x2160 pixel ratio) projectors. A special reflective compound coats the surface of Elite’s 4K acoustic material to compensate for light penetration by reflecting the brightness of the projected image. All these features come together to form a product with superior acoustic transparency that has just 1% light loss while presenting a neutral color temperature (6500°-7000° Kelvin). This is equivalent and in some cases, even surpassing in video performance to a standard matte white non-acoustic projection screen.
