  • PDF

Enlightor NeoAn evolution of the company's Enlightor-4K AT screen, the Neo is more matte, higher gain and promises improved acoustic attenuation. The surface features a newly-woven pattern which improves audio and video performance. Like Enlightor-4K, Neo is rated for 4K and higher resolutions, and delivers enhanced HDR performance.

The matte finish is improved (1.0 gain) while the look is slightly brighter than Enlightor-4K (0.9). It also has more "stretch," meaning it can be pulled tauter than other AT surfaces on the market. This makes it ideal for difficult custom applications such as motorised retractable applications.
