In the “old days” of home theater, people sat in a dark room where the only thing visible was the screen. That’s a perfectly fine approach, but times have changed, and today many people have chosen to locate their theater gear in a room where there’s plenty of light—from lamps, windows, and even fixtures in adjacent spaces. It’s a trend that’s sparked the development of screens designed to combat artificial and natural lighting so that the image on its surface remains as bright and vivid as it would in a pitch dark room.
Elite Prime Vision offers a new series of ALR (ambient light rejecting) projection screens, PolarMax Tab-Tension. The screens are motorized down when you want to watch and up into a casing when you’re using the room for other activities. Available in a 92” to 135” diagonal sizes in a 16:9 aspect ratio, they feature EPV’s award winning PolarMax 1.3 gain material. They are ISF certified for accurate color fidelity while maintaining superior contrast enhancement, color saturation, and brightness retention. In addition to negating the washout effects of ambient light, the material is 4K/8K Ultra HD, Active 3D, HDR ready. It is also tab-tension reinforced for optimal screen flatness.

The design is housed in a stylish aluminum casing which has aesthetically pleasing sleek lines that will complement any interior decor. Its sliding installation brackets mount quickly and snap the PolarMax into place. Because the brackets slide horizontally, the screen will be perfectly centered every time.
It has a standard power connection and also features RS232 ports. Its control features include an in-line up/stop/down toggle switch on the endcap for easy operation. A full IR/RF, control kit also accompanies the screen. This includes remotes, extended IR “eye” for hidden installations, and a 12 volt trigger that synchronizes screen operation with the projector’s power cycle.
