Transcripts:

[19:10] Mick: I’m looking to buy a motorized projector screen that will work with a short throw projector. I would like an electric roll-up but is there a particular material I should buy? I'd like it to be 150" - 160" diagonal sixe

[19:11]        Rick Hello Mick, I would gladly assist you with this. You are right about the material.  Since a short throw projector spreads out a light signal over such a short distance, anything but a flat-taut surface will give a distorted image. If it is a roll-up format, I recommend a tab-tensioned PVC material.

[19:12]        Rick: We have a few series that will work with this type of projector but I have a favorite and it’s not the most expensive we have either.

[19:13]        Rick: Our  Cinetension B series is especially popular.

[19:13]        Rick: the biggest model is 150"

[19:16] Mick: so the tension is designed for short throw projectors?

[19:17]        Rick: yes.  It keeps the screen surface perfectly flat so that the UST projector can thow an even image.

[19:18]        Rick: For a roll-up design, it needs the tab-tensioning to  provide you with the flattest surface possible.

[19:19] Mick: if I went with a fixed frame model what would you recommend?

[19:19] Mick: I’ve got the Optoma EH320 UST

[19:19]        Rick: between the motorized screen?

[19:20]        Rick: Fixed frame is the absolute best solution. Any of our matte white designs would work best but my favorite is an ALR/CLR material specially made for UST projectors,  It is called the Aeon CLR

[19:21] Mick: Sounds good.  Do you have a link?
