Big-screen movie fun with the push of a button

This value-priced retractable screen uses Elite's CineGrey 5D® material to reject most ambient and ceiling room light. Its ability to boost picture brightness and contrast counters the tendency of ambient light to wash out the projected image. Now home theater fans can enjoy the immersive impact of a projector system in real-world rooms.

A closer look at CineGrey

Conventional white or gray screens work fine in the cave-like darkness of a dedicated theater. But it takes a special material like CineGrey 5D to maintain a sharp, colorful image with the lights on.

CineGrey 5D places a diffusion layer over a highly reflective layer. The direct light from the projector is reflected squarely back at viewers, while the outer layer enhances contrast and reflects away indirect ambient light.

The screen comes with two remotes (one IR, one RF), as well as a 12-volt trigger to coordinate the screen's drop and rise with turning your projector on or off. Manual up/down buttons on the screen case ensure that the show will go on even if the remote goes missing.

A pair of sliding brackets is included for flush wall/ceiling installation.

Features

Starling Tab-Tension 2 CineGray 5D Series: The Starling Tab-Tension 2 CineGrey 5D Series is an electric motorized retratable projector screen that uses an Ambient Light Rejecting material. The retractable feature provides flexibility to mounting the screen without dedicating its designated location to exclusively one purpose. The ambient light rejecting material is formulated to sustain excellent color reproduction and contrast for enhanced picture quality in environments with little control over room lighting.

CineGray 5D Screen Material: The CineGrey 5D is an angular reflective front projection material designed to reject ambient light while maintaining superb picture quality.  The CineGrey 5D is the perfect solution for rooms that have little or no control over incidental light.  This means that it's an ideal fit for family rooms as well as lecture halls, boardrooms, sports bars, training facilities, and other business environments. In addition, the CineGrey 5D increases projector brightness 1.5x the amount (perfect for low lumens ouput projectors). The CineGrey 5D is superior to traditional white or gray materials in its ability to maintain a sharp, bright image regardless  of ambient light.  The angular reflective material incorporates a diffusion layer over a highl reflective surface. This causes direct light from the projector to reflect squarely into the viewer's field of vision while the outer contrast layer enhances image quality while reflecting indirect ambient light.

  • 4K Ultra HD, HDR, and Active 3D Ready
  • High fidelity gray surface produces superb clarity and sharp imag
  • ISF Certified for accurate color points, color temperature and dynamic range
  • Angular-Reflective and Ambient Light Rejecting technology
  • 1.5 Gain, 80º, Viewing angle 88% Polarization Retention, 1.5 Minimum Lens Throw
  • Mildew resistant and screen surface can be cleaned with a microfiber cloth
  • GREENGUARD / GREENGUARD Gold Certified UL 2818 for Safety Indoor Emissions free
  • Flame retardant and complies with NFPA 701 Standards

Remote Control: The motorized projection screen comes with an IR and RF remote for wireless operation. A 12-volt trigger input cable allows for synchornized screen operation with your projector's power cycle. Control functions include Up and Down.

Projector Placement: Since angular reflective means that your projected image will reflect at the mirror-opposite angle, it is important to position the projector so that the viewer will benefit by getting the best possible image performance from the projection screen. In order to optimize your viewing experience, following the pojector placement guidelines in the User's Guide.

Note:

  • Angular Reflective material is not compatible with ultra/short-throw projectors
  • Ambient light must not come from the same direction as the projector
  • Minimum lens throw ratio 1.5x image width

That screen is not acoustically transparent. We don't have any motorized screens that are. Here is a list of all the large acoustically transparent screens we carry: https://bit.ly/2WjAFmP

Does it include a cover for the opening when ceiling mounting the screen?
[ James  Mar 19, 2019 ]

The screen retracts into a case; it's shown in the additional photos below the main image on the screen's webpage. The bottom edge of the screen covers the opening in the case when the screen is retracted.
