Da-Lite 82979 Model C
Manual pull-down screen with Controlled Screen Return (106")
Our take on the Da-Lite 82979 Model C by Crutchfield's Steve Kindig
This manual pull-down screen will provide years of great performance and smooth operation. Da-Lite's exclusive Controlled Screen Return (CSR) system ensures the quiet, controlled return of the screen into the case every time. Just be aware that screens with the CSR feature must be fully extended — there are no intermediate stopping positions. This is a reliable choice for classrooms and meeting rooms, and is also a good option for a family room theater.
This 106" screen features Da-Lite's Video Spectra® surface. Its reflective coating provides increased brightness, while moderately reducing viewing angle. It's a great choice if your room has ambient lighting that's not fully controllable. Black borders framing the viewing area enhance the perceived brightness and colors of on-screen images.
You can mount this screen's slim case to either the wall or ceiling. When it's movie time, just pull the screen down and you're ready to go.

Installation: This Da-Lite projection screen can be wall-mounted, ceiling-mounted, or suspended from the ceiling on hooks.
