ELITE SCREENS, INC. ANNOUNCES STARBRIGHT WHITEBOARD SCREEN FOR CLASSROOMS AND BOARDROOMS

New Material Eliminates Need For Ambient Light Control
CERRITOS, Calif., November 12, 2008 -Elite Screens, Inc. an innovative company that specializes in affordable, high quality projector screens, today announced its StarBright Whiteboard Screen, an innovative solution that merges its StarBright premium grade ultra-high gain reflective material with a dry erase whiteboard for classroom and boardroom presentations in environments with bright ambient light.

"We combine our Starbright4 state of the art material that uses specialized layers to maximize light reflectivity with a dry-erase surface, and the results are incredible," said David Rodgers, marketing manager, Elite Screens, Inc. "Starbright4 means that it has a 4-gain reflectivity that works well in ambient light. The image rivals a flat panel display in terms of brightness and clarity, and the presenter can even write over it while lecturing."

Elite's StarBright Whiteboard users save space and money because it combines both a projection screen and a classroom writing board into one screen, eliminating the need for two separate products. Just like any educational whiteboard, StarBright4 material has a dust resistant dry erase surface. For a wide range of application choices, Elite's StarBright Whiteboard Screen comes in a standard class writing board format as well as 4:3 and 16:9 projection screen aspect ratios with sizes ranging from 60 to 106 inches.

Elite's StarBright4 projection material has a brightness level four times greater than a standard matte white projection surface. It uses a multi-layered design that concentrates reflected light to create a bright image. The screen's layers diffuse a projector's intensity to control hot-spotting which is a difficult task in all high gain materials, and it eliminates a wash-out effect by filtering out ambient light to provide a clear picture. These layers rest on a primed sheet of galvanized steel for total flatness and magnetic attraction, which is useful when writing on the screen and using magnetic reference points during a lecture.

"Now teachers and audience members don't have to turn the lights off to see the projection screen, and they can make a presentation more powerful by writing or highlighting directly on it," added Rodgers. "Plus, it's a lot easier to take notes when you're not sitting in the dark during the presentation or lecture."

Pricing, Availability, Warranty
Pricing for Elite's StartBright Whiteboard Screen starts at $399 and will be available in December 2008 through retail, Internet, professional AV and systems integrator channels. It comes with Elite's two-year manufacturer's limited warranty, which is twice the industry standard.
