This customer has a lot of questions before attempting a ceiling installation of her projector screen.

She does the right thing by reaching out to absolutely be sure the screen she selects is the right one for the task at hand.  In addition to that the service rep gives valuable information regarding accessories and how much top drop border the screen should have so that it aligns best with the human eye.
