      I'm looking for the best in class 2:35:1 acoustic transparent screen. Viewing distance is near , around 10 to 11ft. Hence would prefer woven type material.

      Any brands or models are welcomed.

      I'm biased of course but DT Screens fitted with AT Ref surface is the best match to your requirements due to the non existent texture and (for an AT Screen) high gain of 0.92.

      You can check www.dt-screens.com for info

      Just curious you are biased because you are the distributor or owner of one? :)

      Is there any independent report out there that pit all the screen material available on market?

      I am the owner of Display Technologies. There is no independent report that tests all of the surfaces in the same conditions etc (would be a difficult and lengthy project) but there are plenty of good independent subjective comments

      There was a 'white paper' produced by one of the well known calibrators over on AVS forum which measured both AT and non AT screens for gain and other factors, plus the amount of sound reduction caused by the screen in the case of AT screens.

      I can't remember who completed this at the moment, but I will try to add a link later. Unfortunately I don't think that all of the options mentioned in this thread were included in the report. FWIW I chose a Seymour XD material, partly based on the report, but also based on seeing some demos at a dealer open day that uses this material. However, this material suits my set up due to an over 11' viewing distance, so any weave isn't visible from my seating position, but I benefit from it's above average (in AT terms) gain, so have good brightness even on a 3 metre wide screen.

      For shorter viewing distances other options may be necessary, but typically these options will have less gain still, so generally AT screens need to be paired with a projector that has plenty of light output.

      I did the same research and went XD for my custom screen. I think the report was:
