[21:09] Customer: Hi
[21:09] Rick: Hello, how may I help you.
[21:09] Customer: I am looking for 150'' fixed frame screen for my ultra-short throw projector.
[21:10] Customer: The distance at which it is placed will throw a 150” footprint.
[21:10] Customer: Can you please suggest the best 150'' screen type for this at a sensible cost?
[21:11] Rick: Certainly, when it comes to ultra short throw projector, you want perfect flatness because the slightest imperfection of a few millimeters will distort the projected image. the model is the Sable Frame 2 series ER150WH2

[21:12] Customer: Will Aeon Series work for this projector?
[21:12] Rick: Yes, the model will be AR150WH2. The Sable comes at a lower cost. The Aeon would be my preference.
[21:13] Customer: So, which best between those two?
[21:14] Rick: Both use the same material the only difference is that the Aeon has a better framework. The Aeon uses an internal framework with wrap-around material which aesthetically looks better. The Sable Frame has the traditional black framework around the edges. I think the Aeon looks better but the Sable is cheaper.
[21:15] Customer: Do you guys ship international?
[21:17] Rick: We have branches in Europe, Australia and Asia

[21:17] Customer: Are these only 2 models you guys have for UST projectors ?
[21:18] Rick: These are the primary one's recommended for ultra-short throw in this diagonal size but our other matte white frame screen that are 150” and 16:9 to match your projector are fine as well.
[21:19] Customer: OK thank you for your help.
[21:20] Customer: Thank you for choosing Elite Screens.
