The Aeon UST (Ultra Short Throw) screen is an EDGE FREE fixed frame screen that uses Elite Screens’ StarBright CLR (Ceiling Light Rejecting) material, which the company says is ideal for ultra short throw projectors. Elite Screens announced its availability in a statement last week.
The screen’s optical surface lens microstructure negates 95 percent of the washout effects of ambient lighting from overhead sources, Elite Screens explained. And the “highly specialized design” enables the material to provide contrast levels that are 100 times greater than that of standard matte white projection screens.
“The StarBright CLR material is specifically designed for ultra-short-throw projectors to provide a large-screen performance within the close quarters of most residential or office training environments,” Elite Screens said in the statement. “It also dwarfs today’s flat-panel displays but at a fraction of their cost. Aeon UST offers a wide 180-degree viewing angle, neutral color temperature, and enhanced picture contrast in a theater-grade image.”
The Elite Screens Aeon UST projection screen is available now in a 16:9 HDTV format through the retail sales channel, the company said. It comes with a two-year manufacturer’s warranty and a three-year ENR-G warranty for educational, nonprofit, religious, and government and military organizations. Pricing is available through Elite Screens’ website.
