"So-far, so-good. I was looking for a motorized screen that I could hang from the ceiling and drop down in front of my TV. I picked up the 135" w/ 1.1 gain. It is awesome. The instillation was easy and quick. Look on YouTube for how it is mounted. The screen just clicks into place. The image that my JVC 4910 projects onto the screen is sharp and clear. My room is not dark and with the blinds closed I can watch sports during the day without issue. The best is, of course, movies at night. I just get lost in the picture. The motor is quite and fairly quick. I have only used the RF remote. All I have left to due is hard wire the power. For the price, I said why not and am glad I did.”

Q: What screens do short throw projectors work with?
Elite's non-tensioned screens are great with standard throw projectors, but just like any non-tensioned projector screen, we don’t recommend using it with an ultra/short throw projector.  Non-tensioned screens are not completely flat and while it may have little, if any, perceivable effect with a standard projector’s image, it can distort ultra/short throw imagery. We recommend purchasing Elite's tab-tensioned screens utilizing the CineWhite® or CineWhite® UHD materials or any of Elite's fixed frame screens if an ultra/short throw projector is required.

Q: Can I buy a small screen material sample?
Yes, you can buy a screen material sample by clicking here.

Q: Tension cord not tight on Starling Tab-Tension, Saker Tab-Tension and Spectrum Tab-Tension ?
The Tension cords on the side of the screen do perform its pull effect to reduce side curving/curling, but Starling Tab-Tension, Saker Tab-Tension and Spectrum Tab-Tension use a weaved fabric. Unlike a flexible PVC fabric that allows for stretching and pulls to create a flat and taut projection surface, such as the one used on our CineTension B Series.

Q: Can I use my manual/electric Elite projection screen as a window shade to block the sunlight?
No, Elite manual and electric projection screens are not designed for use as a window curtain and should never be exposed to direct sunlight.  Prolonged exposure to solar radiation will destroy synthetic materials and such damage is not covered by our standard warranty.
Q: What are the model numbers for the Starling Tab-Tension Series?
Here is the full list of model numbers for the Starling Tab-Tension Series: STT100UWH-E24, STT100XWH-E24, STT120UWH-E14, STT120XWH-E14, STT135UWH-E6, STT135XWH-E6, STT150UWH-E6,STT150XWH-E6
Q: How do you decode model #'s?
Each Elite Screens' model number starts with the product series name. Follow by case color (if applicable, certain models only available in one color), screen material, screen aspect ratio and product series version. Lastly, extra black drop and its length (if applicable). Here is an example.

STT 120 X WH -E24

W: Spectra White FG material
H: 16:9 Format

Q: What are the Infrared Remote control binary codes for the Starling and Starling Tab-Tension?
The binary codes for the Starling and Starling Tab-Tension are as follows
UP: 1101 00001000
STOP: 1101 00010000
DOWN: 1101 00100000
Q: Does the Starling Tab-Tension come with a 3-way wall switch? Are the wall box part numbers ZSP-WB-W or ZSP-WB-B compatible?
The Starling Tab-Tension does not currently include a wall box. The only methods of controlling the screen would be through the IR/RF remote controls, the manual up/down controls on the exterior of  the case, or the 12 volt trigger cable. The wall box part numbers ZSP-WB-W or ZSP-WB-B are not compatible with the Starling Tab-Tension as this series utilizes specialized circuitry that is different from other Elite Screens models.
