[17:34] Customer: There are so many screen options. I need help :)
[17:34] Rick: Hello, I be happy to help.
[17:35] Customer: Great thanks
[17:36] Rick: Here are the main questions to ask yourself: Indoor or outdoor? Portable, fixed-frame, manual or electric retractable? What aspect ratio (16:9, 4:3, 1:1, etc.) to match your projector? What size? Do you need a white or specialty material? What are your thoughts on this?
[17:38] Customer: I need something around 139 inches for a meeting room.
[17:38] Customer: the space is about 25x50 but the farthest seat is about 35 feet away from the screen
[17:39] Customer: I'd like probably ceiling mount with automatic up/down
[17:40] Rick: Perfect. I will bring up the screen that I recommend. Here is also a link to a wizard that will give you even more options - https://elitescreens.com/front/front/advancesearch now one moment and I’ll bring up my recommendation.
