[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
