This customer was looking for the largest screen within reason to accompany his short throw projector in his enclosed screening room.  In this case it’s a short throw projector with massive 16:9 200” screen.

Transcripts:

[18:02]        Johnny: Hello how may I assist you today

[18:03] Customer: What model can we order for about a 180-200" diagonal 16:9 format and usable with a short throw projector in a dark screening room?

[18:04]        Johnny: Certainly, I have a tech tip on short throw projectors that I recommend reading - https://elitescreens.com/front/front/newsdetail/news/355  Are you interested in a motorized or fixed frame screen?

[18:04] Customer: I’d like to hear about motorized retractable but am leaning more favorably toward a fixed frame screen.  Are there suggestions on size-to-viewing distance?

[18:06]        Johnny: For a short throw projection screen, it really should be tensioned.  The most ideal is a fixed frame screen.  The largest we have for motorized tab-tensioned screen is a 180" diagonal size. I have a short instructional video that  defines recommended screen sizes https://elitescreens.com/elitetube/screen_size_edu.mp4

[18:07]        Johnny: Our fixed frame screens come in the sizes you specified. Which would be best? 

[18:08] Customer: 200" please. My seating will be about 20 feet from the screen.            

[18:08]        Johnny: ok that would be model R200WH1PLUS

[18:08] Customer: Thanks.

[18:08]        Johnny: from our ezFrame Plus Series. Here is the product link - https://eliteproav.com/product/ezframe-plus-series/ 

[18:09]        Johnny: is there anything else I can assist you with today

[18:09] Customer: No, thanks.

[18:10]        Johnny: Thank you for your interest in Elite Screens, and hope you have a great day.
