Elite Screens, Inc. an innovative company that specializes in quality projection screens, today announced The Saker is now available with either a tensioned or fiberglass-backed material option. “A nice design is essential and the Saker definitely accomplishes that.” said Dave Rodgers, Marketing Manager for Elite Screens. “We offer two quality materials that focus on superb flatness and our customers have varied preferences as to whether this is best achieved with an “FG” backing or with side tension cords. For this reason, it was essential to give our customers a choice.”
The Saker electric projection screen is an enhanced product for the US and Europe’s CE retail and Pro AV sales channels. It has a streamlined and durable arcuate profiled casing. The material rises and drops with the aid of its synchronous motor and a full IR/RF control package is included.
The aluminum casing has a stylish arcuate profile that is best suited to the aesthetics of interior design. Its corrugated front-end serves to strengthen the structural integrity through many years of operational service. It is coated in a white case color. Its sliding wall mounts allow the Saker to be properly centered in every installation.
The material used is Elite’s MaxWhite FG material which is fiberglass backed for superior flatness. It is a 1.1 gain matte white surface with black backing to eliminate light penetration for enhanced picture brightness. In addition to its wide diffusion uniformity, the material is matted on all sides to enhance perceived visual contrast. As an added safety value, the material is GREENGUARD Gold (UL 2818) certified for indoor air quality and compliant with NFPA 701 fire retardant standards. There is also a tensioned material option. The CineWhite is a tab-tensioned PVC material that also has the same 1.1 gain surface complete with black backing and masking. Depending on the screen size, Saker projection Screens also have an extended top border of 20” to 30” (51cm to 76cm) for high-ceiling installations.
The material is raised and lowered using a quiet and power-saving 110v 38 watt synchronous motor that turns at 7-10rpm with overheat protection. The Saker electric projection screen ships fully assembled with complete Infrared/Radio Frequency, 5-12 volt trigger and RJ45 control port. Additional features such as an extended IR “eye”sensor and integrated up/down controls on the box itself for making minor adjustments.
