Recessed/In-Ceiling Electric Screens FAQ’s

Q : What is the difference between the Evanesce (tension) B and Evanesce(tension) Series?
What is the difference between the Evanesce (tension) B and Evanesce(tension) Series?

The Evanesce B and Evanesce Tension B Series’ differ from the regular series in that the B Series were mainly designed for home theater applications. With that in mind, we focused on the most popular aspect ratios and diagonal sizes used in a home theater setting. We also reduced the size of the housing and motor. By focusing on fewer models and by reducing the amount of materials used for the housing unit, we were able to cut down on production costs which we in turn passed along to the consumer. The Evanesce and Evanesce Tension were designed more for commercial applications such as conference rooms and auditoriums. Nevertheless, the screens can also be installed in dedicated home theaters. The Evanesce and Evanesce Tension feature a wider array of aspect ratios and sizes, have a faster motor, and utilize a more robust housing unit. All series come with a complete remote kit and have hardware accessories that allow for either a below or above ceiling installation (excluding Evanesce Plus).

Q : Do any of the trim pieces from the Evanesce B Series screen come off to allow installation if there is no access above the screen?

Yes, please click HERE for a diagram to achieve a direct control (dry contact).

Q: My projector is not triggering the screen to drop. How do I test the trigger to ensure that the screen is not the issue?
Q: My projector is not triggering the screen to drop. How do I test the trigger to ensure that the screen is not the issue?

By exposing the red and green wires of the provided trigger, connect a 9-volt battery to the bare wires according to their polarity with the screen plugged in to the wall outlet. Once the wires make contact with the battery’s terminals, the screen will drop. Releasing the voltage from the battery will make the screen rise automatically. This indicates that the trigger and screen are functioning properly. Please check with your power source’s manufacturer for further assistance.   If the screen does not drop when applying the voltage with the battery, the next step would be to test the screen’s circuit board. Do this by plugging in the provided wall box and pressing the DOWN button. If the screen drops, then you may need a replacement trigger. Please contact Elite’s service department for support by sending an email to [email protected].

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?

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 shop.elitescreens.com for information about purchasing this product.

Q: If I install a Motorized Screen into the ceiling, what are my possible methods of controlling it?
Q. If I install a Motorized Screen into the ceiling, what are my possible methods of controlling it?

Since the Spectrum’s Infrared (IR) Sensor is hidden within the ceiling, there are a few options in which to control a ceiling installed Spectrum Screen:

  1. IR Eye Extender (ZSP-EYE&12V):  With the need of line of sight, the IR signal will not be sensed by the IR receiver built within the housing of the Spectrum.  By using an IR eye extender that attaches via the Spectrums all purpose RJ45 port, the extended sensor provides a solution to this problem.
  2. Radio Frequency (RF) Remote (ZSP-RF-B, ZSP-RF-W): The Spectrum, unfortunately, does not come with an RF remote.  It does, however, have an RF receiver built into the housing.  Without the need of direct line of sight, an RF remote would be a good control option.
  3. In-Wall Switch (ZIW-B, ZIW-W, ZIW-W1):  The spectrum comes with an all purpose RJ45 port.  By routing a cable within the wall, the In-Wall Switch provides a close proximity control option.  In addition, you can create your own in-wall switch by purchasing only our ZIW-Module.
  4. Wireless 12V Trigger (ZSP-TR01):  Use your projector as a screen control option by hooking up this simple device to your projector’s output trigger port.  If your screen doesn’t have an output trigger port, the Universal Wireless 12V Projector Trigger (ZU12V) works just as well for all projectors.
Q: Does the ZPM-RT2 control kit work with other Elite Screens electric screens?
Q: Does the ZPM-RT2 control kit work with other Elite Screens electric screens?

No, the ZPM-RT2 only works on the Spectrum 2 series.
Note: Compatible only with Spectrum 2 Series with serial number 198Exxxxx and after.  Example. 198E00497

Q: Are Elite’s electric screens compatible with Harmony remotes?
Q: Are Elite’s electric screens compatible with Harmony remotes?

Most of Elite’s electric screen products are compatible with Harmony remotes and are in their database. The only electric screens series that are not compatible with Harmony remotes are the Starling and Starling Tab-Tension Series (Versions 1 and 2). New Elite Screens series may not appear in the Harmony database, but you can simply select the VMAX2 series as the IR codes are identical for all series. Click here to visit the Harmony website for further assistance with programming your remote with our electric screens.

Q: What is the power consumption and motor RPM for my Elite Electric screen?
Q. What is the power consumption and motor RPM for my Elite Electric screen?

Q: Can I increase the Top Black Border on my screen?
Q: Can I increase the Top Black Border on my screen?

No, your screen’s Top Black border has been set to deploy to its full extent. Attempting to increase will damage the motor and void your warranty with Elite Screens.

Q: Why does my electric screen no longer function?
Q: Why does my electric screen no longer function?

There are a few possible things you could check:

1. Make sure your wall plug has power and that the screen is properly plugged in.
2. If the screen works well with the wall switch but not with the remote controls, ensure that fresh alkaline batteries are installed in the remote controls.
3. Check your screen’s internal fuse. (Please call our Tech Support for location of fuse before tampering with the screen.)
4. Our Home2, CineTension2, Kestrel, Raptor and VMAX Plus 3/4 screens feature a tubular motor equipped with a Thermal Relay.  This feature will automatically shut off the screen should your motor become too hot, thus preventing overheating of the motor.  To correct this, simply leave the screen alone for 20-30 minutes and try again.

Q: Can I use my manual/electric Elite projection screen as a window shade to block the sunlight?
Q: Can I use my manual/electric Elite projection screen as a window shade to block the sunlight?

No, Elite manual and electric projection screens are not designed for use as a window curtain and should never be exposed to direct sunlight.  Prolonged exposure to solar radiation will destroy synthetic materials and such damage is not covered by our standard warranty.

AcousticPro UHD – Screen Material FAQ’s

Q: Is the AcousticPro UHD/CineWhite A8K/CineGrey 4D AT/CineGrey 3D AT compatible with my 3D projector?
Q: Is the AcousticPro UHD compatible with my 3D projector?

The AcusticPro UHD/CineWhite A8K/CineGrey 4D AT/CineGrey 3D AT is compatible with Active 3D projectors.  As the screen is not polarized, it will not work with Passive 3D applications.

Q: Will the AcousticPro UHD material develop waves or curl over time?
Q: Will the AcousticPro UHD material develop waves or curl over time?

The AcousticPro UHD material is a self-supporting, rigid material making it capable of withstanding curling/waving over time as long as it is not in a cold environment.  We strongly recommend using the product in a controlled environment with a temperate of approximately 74 degrees Fahrenheit.

Q: What Screen Series is the AcousticPro UHD available on? Do you have a tab-tension series with the AcousticPro UHD material?
Q: What Screen Series is the AcousticPro UHD available on? Do you have a tab-tension series with the AcousticPro UHD material?

The AcousticPro UHD is available in our Spectrum Series (non-tensioned), Saker Tab-Tension Series (Tensioned), and Evanesce Series.

Q: Is the black border around the AcousticPro UHD material acoustically transparent as well in the electric drop down series products?
Q: Is the black border around the AcousticPro UHD material acoustically transparent as well in the electric drop down series products?

“Yes, the black border is made of the same material as the AcousticPro UHD, thus it is acoustically transparent.”

Q: Does the AcousticPro UHD material have a black backing in the electric drop down series products?
Q: Does the AcousticPro UHD material have a black backing in the electric drop down series products?

Currently, the AcousticPro UHD does not have black backing. However, the AcousticPro UHD incorporates a dense synthetic weave with an average size perforation of 0.32mm designed to mitigate light penetration.

Q: Can I use the AcousticPro UHD/CineWhite A8K material in a room with ambient light?
Q: Can I use the AcousticPro UHD/CineWhite A8K material in a room with ambient light?

The AcousticPro UHD/CineWhite A8K 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: How far should I place my speakers behind the CineWhite A8K/CineGrey 3D AT/CineGrey 4D AT and AcousticPro UHD (Acoustically Transparent) screen materials?
Q: How far should I place my speakers behind the CineWhite A8K/CineGrey 3D AT/CineGrey 4D AT and AcousticPro UHD (Acoustically Transparent) screen materials?

A projection screen mounted flush against the wall over a properly installed in-wall speaker will have a sufficient distance by itself. There will generally be about a 1” total distance between the speaker’s dust cap (depending on make/model) and the screen with a 5mm (.2”) spacing between an in-wall speaker’s grill and the AT screen material itself.

Q: Do the AcousticPro UHD/CineWhite A8K/CineGrey 3D AT/CineGrey 4D AT support passive 3D (polarized glasses)?
Q: Do the AcousticPro UHD/CineWhite A8K/CineGrey 3D AT/CineGrey 4D AT support passive 3D (polarized glasses)?

No they are not polarized and do not support passive 3D.

Q: How much room is recommended between in-wall speakers and acoustically transparent screen materials AcousticPro UHD/CineWhite A8K/CineGrey 3D AT/CineGrey 4D AT?
Q: How much room is recommended between in-wall speakers and acoustically transparent screen materials AcousticPro UHD/CineWhite A8K/CineGrey 3D AT/CineGrey 4D AT?

As long as the in-wall speakers do no touch the materials or approximately 1”.

Q: Will I sacrifice picture quality using Elite’s AcousticPro UHD/CineWhite A8K/CineGrey 3D AT/CineGrey 4D AT (Acoustically Transparent) screen materials?
Q: Will I sacrifice picture quality using Elite’s AcousticPro UHD/CineWhite A8K/CineGrey 3D AT/CineGrey 4D AT (Acoustically Transparent) screen materials?


All acoustically transparent materials on the market today are light enough in thickness to allow sound to penetrate it with low-level attenuation (decrease in sound quality) but normally come at the cost of having considerable light loss as well. Elite’s AcousticPro 1080P3 acoustically transparent (AT) material is an exception to this rule.  It has an astonishingly fine (.01mm) micro-perforated texture that allows sound to breathe through the fabric with minimal attenuation. At the same time, it allows the video aspects of the material to perform on the same level as a typical matte-white (non-acoustic) material does. The ultra-fine perforations of the AcousticPro 1080P3 “AT” material allows it to be used with high resolution (4096×2160 pixel ratio)  projectors. A special reflective compound coats the surface of Elite’s 1080P acoustic material to compensate for light penetration by reflecting the brightness of the projected image. All these features come together to form a product with superior acoustic transparency that has just 1% light loss while presenting a neutral color temperature (6500°-7000° Kelvin). This is equivalent and in some cases, even surpassing in video performance to a standard matte white non-acoustic projection screen.

Q: Is the black top drop also “acoustic” material on the electric drop down AcousticPro UHD models?
Q: Is the black top drop also “acoustic” material on the electric drop down AcousticPro UHD models?

The entire material is made of the AcousticPro UHD, so it is transparent.
Note: Black masking borders are entirely made of the AcousticPro UHD sound transparent material.
