Draper, Inc., will show its latest motorized projector mounts during CES 2007.
The Phantom works on a simple principle. The projector is mounted into a framework above the ceiling. When activated, a trapdoor lowers the projector into the room using a precision actuator with pre-set limits. The projector is easily aligned during installation to provide a direct light path onto your Draper screen.
The Orbiter conceals the projector above the ceiling and quickly rotates it into the “show” position at the touch of a switch or wireless transmitter. The Orbiter’s compact design allows it to fit into small ceiling cavities, and an optional bracket allows it to be installed in angled ceilings or walls.
Both the Phantom and the Orbiter include a universal projector mounting bracket.
