Da-Lite 82970 Model C Screen
106" manual pull-down projector screen
Our take on the Da-Lite 82970 Model C Screen by Crutchfield's Steve Kindig
This manual pull-down screen is designed for years of trouble-free viewing. It's ideal for classrooms and meeting rooms, and is also a good option for a family room theater. The screen provides a smooth, uniform picture that's a big improvement over projecting onto a wall.
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.
