The screen’s material rejects the washout effects of ambient light
Elite Screens has debuted its Saker Tab-Tension CLR 2 electric projector screen with ceiling and ambient light rejecting (CLR/ALR) material for ultra-short throw (UST), Short Throw, and Standard “Long Throw” projectors. This is an ISF-certified projection material that rejects the washout effects of interior lighting for the full array of projectors, yet it is tough enough to come in a retractable tab-tensioned format.
“This ambient light rejecting material has earned the designation of “CLR” due to its ability to reject high levels of overhead light in addition to other forms of off-axis lighting.” said David Rodgers, marketing manager, EliteProAV “What really makes it special is that the material can accommodate all types of standard long-throw, short throw, and UST (ultra short throw) projectors. The fact that the material is tough enough to roll down/up without suffering degradation like other materials may do.”
EliteProAV’s Saker Tab-Tension CLR 2 is an ISF-certified ambient and ceiling light rejecting (ALR/CLR) projector screen variant of Elite’s Saker electric “roll-up” projection screen. This material rejects the washout effects of ambient light and it is certified by the world-famous Imaging Science Foundation for its ability to enhance picture quality with enhanced color and contrast levels regardless if the room lighting is on or off. Although many manufacturers have an ALR projection screen, the Saker Tab-Tension CLR 2 distinguishes itself with the ability to “roll-up” into its casing when it is not in use AND it will work with all types of standard throw, short throw, and ultra-short throw (UST) projectors.
The StarBright CLR 2 Ceiling Light Rejecting material absorbs up to 65% of overhead lighting. It maintains 50x contrast enhancement over standard matte white screen materials under normal room lighting conditions. It accomplishes this by utilizing multi-layer optical micro-structures filter out ambient light for superior picture quality. Its black backing eliminates light penetration for enhanced picture brightness. The black masking borders format the image and absorb projector overshoot. This screen features a 4K/8K Ultra HD Ready, smooth non-textured surface that is Scratch-resistant and easy to clean. It is also compatible with Ultra-shot throw (65% ambient light rejection), Short-throw (55% ambient light rejection) and Standard throw (45% ambient light rejection) Projectors. The screen is currently available in diagonal size 103” in 16:9 aspect ratio
Elite Screen’s reliable Saker electric screen design features a durable corrugated aluminum protective casing with white enamel coating. It comes fully assembled with standard 3-prong power connection for hanging or flush wall/ceiling installations. The floating brackets included allow wood stud installation and will slide horizontally to be properly centered every time. The tab-tension design helps maintain a flat projection surface for a full array of projectors. The material is raised and lowered using a tubular motor that has superior weight tolerance and a faster RPM. It is controlled by integrated Radio Frequency and Infrared receivers along with IR/RF remotes. A detachable 3-way wall switch keypad, IR “eye” sensor, and wired projector trigger are also included. Finally, a wireless 5-12-volt trigger enables the screen’s Drop/Rise operation to synchronize with the projector’s power cycle.
