[18:38] Customer: Hi I am looking for a rear projection screen around 16'x9'. It is for an indoor venue like an auditorium. What would you recommend? What is the difference between an indoor and an outdoor screen? I am also looking for something that can easily be setup and brought down.

[18:42]        Rick: Great question. If I may have one moment please, I will prepare some suggestions. You have a lot of options here.

[18:48]        Rick: I have one that I can recommend and it is from our Elite ProAv line.

[18:50]        Rick: It is from our YardMaster pro series. This unit comes with a folding frame constructionand it’s ideal for your venue.  The largest model we have is 180 diagonal screen size in a 16:9 format.

[18:50] Customer: OK. Does that work for indoors too?

[18:50] Customer: IT says outdoors

[18:51]        Rick: Yes, it is designed for outdoors but is used a lot for large indoor venues as well

[18:51]        Rick: Here is the product page.

[18:51]        Rick: There are a lot of other portable units to choose from. Here is the link: 

[18:52]        Rick: I have also DIY screens as well. This is just the material and you will have to build your own frame to set up.

[18:53] Customer: got it.

[18:53] Customer: Thank you.

[18:54]        Rick: Here is the link: 

[18:54]        Rick: For your project, I would consider the DIY251RH1  (125” 16:9)

[18:54] Customer: Wow, there are a lot of options. Thanks for the help.
