Q: Can I buy a small screen material sample?

A: Yes, you can buy a MaxWhite® screen material sample by clicking here.

    Buy an AcousticPro UHD screen material sample by clicking here.

Q: Can I use the AcousticPro UHD material in a room with ambient light?
A: The AcousticPro UHD performs at its best in a light controlled environment, not in a room that will have ambient light. The material is a fabric with a special weave pattern for projection use. It is suggested to go with our standard CineWhite® material if a matte white screen is needed. Or better yet, our very best CineGrey 3D® or CineGrey 5D® material will perform better with a higher gain and Angular-Reflective front projection with ambient light rejecting technology.

Q: I know that all Elite Screens motorized screens include a built-in 5-12 volt trigger RJ45 input port, but what if my projector does not have a 5-12 volt trigger ouput port.  How can I take advantage of the automatic down/stop synchronizcation of my Elite motorized screen and my projector?

A: Elite Screens offers a wireless Universal 5-12 volt projector accessory (Part# ZU12V) for projectors that do not have a trigger output. Contact your preferred Elite Screens reseller or visit for information about purchasing this product.

Q: How can I extend my RJ-45 accessory such as my 5-12 v trigger, 3-way wall switch, and IR "eye" sensor?

A: You can extend the length of your cable using the ZSP-12V-50B. This 50 feet RJ-45 cable includes an extender plug coupler to allow you to join connections to your existing accessory.

Q: What preventative maintenance does Elite Screens recommend for electric screens?

A: Elite strongly recommends using either a standard surge protector or a power conditioner on all electric projection screens.

Q: What is the power cable length of the VMAX Dual® Series Electric Screen?
The power cable length for all VMAX Dual® Series models is approximately 70.8" (1.8M). Note: This measurement is accurate for USA only, other countries may be equipped with different lengths for each model.

Q: What aspect ratio screen on the VMAX Dual® is the Wireless 5-12 volt trigger programmed to drop/rise, the 16:9 or the 2.35:1?
The 16:9 aspect ratio screen is programmed to drop/rise when using the wireless 5-12 volt projector trigger.

Q: Can the wireless 5-12v projector trigger of the VMAX Dual® be reprogrammed to sync the drop/rise of the 2.35:1 aspect ratio screen instead of the 16:9 aspect ratio screen?
Unfortunately, the wireless 5-12 volt projector trigger for the VMAX Dual® cannot be reprogrammed and only controls the rise/drop of the 16:9 aspect ratio screen.
