Elite Screens has announced the availability of three new screen solutions for applications ranging from home theater to business and classroom, from long throw to ultra-short throw.
Suitable for home theater or, as Elite Screens puts it, high-level conference rooms, the Kestrel Tab-Tension 3 Series is a floor-rising electric projection screen. It uses scissor-backed cross risers—that can raise or lower in 15 seconds—paired with a tab-tension design that keeps the screen taut and ripple-free.
The ISF-certified Kestrel Series 3 CineWhite X screen material is 1.2 gain and performs best in a light-controlled environment. It is designed for use with throw ratios ranging from ultra-short to standard/long, and it is compatible with 4K, HDR, and Active 3D. It provides a uniform picture from wide viewing angles, never reaching half-gain (at 85 degrees off-axis the CineWhite X gain is 0.8). Four-side black masking absorbs any projector overshoot (such as the gray border on DLP projectors). The 16:9 screen is available in 122-, 133-, and 150-inch diagonal sizes. Pricing starts at $2,999 and it comes with a 2-year ENR-G warranty (3-year for Educational, Non-profit, Religious, or Government/Military organizations) and lifetime tech support through email or web chat.
One of two new Ambient Light Rejecting (ALR) screens is the portable Light-On CLR 3 Series, that comes in either a 55-inch 4:3 tripod or 60-inch 16:9 folding frame version. Both frame options come with a carrying bag. The screen material is designed to absorb up to 90% of overhead lighting while still allowing for a bright image from wide viewing angles. It is meant for ultra-short throw projectors only and has the same 2-year/3-year ENR-G warranty. It has a starting price of $499.

From the Elite ProAV side, the Presenter Pro Riser CineGrey 4D Series is a motorized floor-rising ALR screen that uses the same scissor-backed design as the Kestrel Series 3 above. The ceiling light rejecting CineGrey 4D 1.1 gain material eliminates 63% of ambient light. The heavy-duty black aluminum housing has handles on each side for easier transport for mobile presentation. Built-in are both infrared and radio frequency receivers (and both IR and RF remotes are included) and there's a 12v trigger to pair with a projector's on/off power cycle.
The Presenter Pro Riser CineGrey 4D is designed for use with standard/long throw projectors only, and comes in 126-, 133-, and 150-inch 16:9 aspect ratio sizes. It has a 5-year warranty and a 5% discount is available for qualifying educational, non-profit, religious, and government/military organizations.
