Elite Screens is introducing a new line of manually operated projection screens that have a Slow Retraction Mechanism (SRM). It is a feature, the company says, that enhances product longevity, safety, and convenience of use.
The Slow Retracting Mechanism (SRM) that permits the screen to retract slowly back into its casing without being assisted by the end user.
Traditional manual projection screens have a spring-loaded mechanism that will retract the projection surface so quickly that the force of its return may actually knock the entire unit off of its installation. This risk is eliminated with the added SRM safety feature, according to Elite.
Additional features include an auto-locking mechanism for variable height settings, black masking borders, MaxWhite (1.1 gain matte white material) with wide diffusion uniformity, lanyard for convenient operation and a versatile end cap design that accomodates both wall and ceiling installations.
Manual SRM Screen sizes are available from 85 to 120 inches, with either 1:1 or 4:3 NTSC aspect ratios.
