Elite's New Projection Screens

Elite's New Projection Screens

Maker of commercial and home-theater projector screens, Elite Screens, has announced two new products, the Raptor Modular Projection Screen and the StarBright 7 screen material with a Dream Window 3.5 inch frame. Both were on display at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, in January.

The Raptor Modular Projection Screen.


The Raptor Modular Projection Screen detaches from its furniture housing so that it may serve as an independent projection surface, making a great option for screening movies in your media room or making a large presentation in your office or boardroom. It uses Elite's CineWhite Tension material, a 1.1 gain material with full diffusion uniformity, to enance flatness. It's also black-backed to eliminate light penetration. You can purchase it in three sizes: 79, 84, and 92 inches.


If you'd rather have non-tensioned material, screens with Maxwhite 1.1 gain non-tensioned material are also available. The Raptor Modular Unit is electric and self-standing, and is housed in a wood-furniture casing with a cherry finish. The non-tensioned models come in 84 and 92 inches.


All of the units come with a "Safe-Stop" infrared sensor that stops a screen from closing wen a small object is in the way (making it little fingers-friendly). Each one can also be used with a 5-12V wirless trigger to synchronize drop and rise with the power cycle. The RF remote provides a range of wireless operation without the need for line-of-sight contact and the IR remote allows for screen operation while also using up to eight different media devices. The wireless trigger, IR/RF receivers and both remotes are included with the screens.


The RF remote provides a range of wireless operation without the necessity for line-of-sight contact. The ZR800D IR universal learning remote allows simultaneous screen operation with up to eight different media devices. Both the RF remote and a ZR800D IR universal learning remote are included.


All of the screens are currently available through retail outlets, professional AV systems integrators, and customer residential. The 84-inch screens are prices at just over $3200. They come with a two year limited warranty.


StarBright 7


StarBright 7 is a series of ultra-high gain projection material and it's available in the Dream Window 3.5-inch thick frame variety. You can get it in sizes up to 206 inches, in either a 16:10 or 4:3 ratio. It has a multi-layered, angular reflective design that absorbs ambient light and enhances black-level contrast and color reproduction. Elite says the material is seven times brighter than typical matte white projection screens.


The surface is coated wit succeeding contrast layers that eliminate was-out and regluate hot-spots. The framework is sturdy and strong, and comes with a lifetime warranty. It has a velour surface, assembles easily, and mounts easily on a horizontally adjustable wall source. Each screen comes with a two-year limited warranty and you can purchase them starting at $1089 for the 76-inch version. You can also order custom sizes.
