[19:31] Jaime: Hello, how may I help you?
[19:32] Customer: I just bought this item and need to know what I need to go with it. We are considering recessing in ceiling. can you email me a cut sheet for the contractors? Also, do we need a trim kit? Thanks
[19:32] Customer: Elite Screens Spectrum, 100-inch Diag 16:9, Electric Motorized 4K Ready Drop Down Projector Screen, ELECTRIC100H
[19:32] Jaime: here are all of the specs for the Spectrum Electric Projector Screen: https://elitescreens.com/front/front/productdetail/product/55
[19:33] Jaime: please refer to the DOWNLOADS section
[19:33] Jaime: a trim kit is needed only if the screen is going to be concealed into the ceiling
[19:34] Jaime: Also, this screen may not drop down far enough for a ceiling mount if the screen is going to be over 8' in height.
[19:37] Jaime: Here is the link for the in-ceiling kit: https://elitescreens.com/front/front/productdetail/product/267
[19:37] Customer: Perfect! this works.
[19:37] Jaime: Do you have any additional questions for me regarding this?
[19:38] Customer: I think that this works but do you have any footage of an actual installation?
[19:39] Jaime: We certainly do. Here is footage of our Evanesce screens being installed. These are screens that are already integrated with their in-ceiling kits. The Spectrum involves installing the in-ceiling kit first and then mounting the Spectrum into the cradle. That said, these videos may give you some ideas.
