[21:58] Customer: Looking at a Sony ultra short throw projector for my home. It will go into a pretty bright room. Would prefer a motorized screen. What would you recommend?
[21:59] Rick: has joined the conversation
[21:59] Customer: And I need ALR
[22:00] Rick: the screen that I strongly recommend is the Aeon CLR

[22:01] Rick: I don't recommend other ALR materials because they will not work with the off-axis throw of a UST projector. The Starbright CLR material is specifically crafted to work with UST projectors.
[22:01] Customer: Everyone else says ALR is best to the bright room... No?
[22:02] Rick: They are but for ultra short throw projectors, a different form of ALR material needed to be made.
[22:02] Rick: Here is some information on the application of ALR materials https://elitescreens.com/images/download/material/userguides/ALR_angular_reflective_material_Installation_Tip.pdf
