Elite Screens introduces Kestrel Tab-Tension 3 Series screens

Elite Screens has announced the availability of the Kestrel Tab-Tension 3 Series of electric floor-rising projection screens, designed for both home theaters and conference rooms. Priced from US$2,639.00 to $4,239.00, Elite says the screens’ tab-tension design maintains a flat and taut front projection surface for a “ripple-free” image suitable for ultra-short throw projectors.

The new models adopt “scissor-backed” cross risers to raise and lower the material and represent a good solution for environments where wall or ceiling installations are not practical. The models on offer consist of the FTE126H3 126″, FTE133H3 133″, and FTE150H3 150″ (all with 16:9 aspect ratio).

Features of all screens in the range include CineWhite X (1.2 Gain) material for rooms with controlled lighting, compatibility with ultra-short and long-throw projectors, ISF Certification for accurate color reproduction, moisture-resistant heavy-duty aluminum black housing, and RF and Infrared remote controls. As well as ultra-wide viewing angle capability for off-axis equal brightness, there is a black backing on all models for eliminating light penetration. Four-sided black masking borders absorb projector overshoot and improve visual contrast, and a 12v trigger allows up/down operation in sync with a projector’s power cycle.

Elite offers two- and three-year manufacturer warranties, as well as lifetime tech support via email, web chat or toll-free phone. The company confidently predicts that orders can be fulfilled within three business days from both east and west coast facilities. For more information, go to Elite Screens.
