ELITE SCREENS, INC. ANNOUNCES KESTRAL - ITS INNOVATIVE PORTABLE ELECTRIC SCREEN

CERRITOS, Calif., June 18, 2008 — Elite Screens, Inc., an innovative company that specializes in affordable high quality projector screens, today announced the Kestrel projection screen. It is a premium grade mobile electric floor-rising screen designed for executive presentations, formal functions or residential home theater rooms that require a flexible alternative to fixed wall or ceiling-mounted installations.

"Our new Kestrel screen fuses high tech convenience with superior quality materials," said David Rodgers, marketing manager, Elite Screens, Inc. "Its precise mechanism makes it rise with a smooth and flawless action with the touch of a button."

Elite's Kestrel measures 84 or 100 inches diagonally in either a 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratio and has a stylish piano gloss finish that combines its aesthetic appeal with the functional portability of its plug and play design. It's available with Elite's MaxWhite FG fiberglass-backed material to provide a flat and easily visible surface in 1.1 Gain.

The screen's mechanized cross-rising apparatus is driven by a tubular motor that has a superior weight tolerance and operational lifespan over synchronized motors used in other models. Its variable height settings accommodate virtually any presentation environment.

Elite's Kestrel provides a wide variety of control options for increase flexibility. Each unit has a built in 5-12V trigger for drop/rise synchronization with the projector's power cycle along with Infrared and Radio Frequency (RF) receivers for a complete wireless operational package. Both an RF remote and a ZR800D IR universal learning remote are included. The RF remote provides a superior range of wireless operation without the need for line-of-sight contact.
