Elite Screens’ Upgraded Raptor

Elite Screens Inc. has completed design modifications to its Raptor projection screen that provide more versatility for residential AV integrators.

Raptor, an electric floor-rising screen that conceals itself in a functional furniture cabinet, is now available in a front-mounted configuration that allows enough surface space for up to a 60-inch flat-panel display. Variants using CineWhite Tension material for enhanced flatness and 2.35:1 aspect ratio for wide screen movies will also be available.

Elite’s Raptor is a completely self-standing projection screen for installations when wall or ceiling screen installations are not practical, such as in apartments. It is housed in a fully functional media stand that accommodates a variety of media room hardware with its self-contained, aesthetically pleasing design.

“Raptor is an ideal home theater solution that combines aesthetic elegance with the functional performance of a large disappearing projection screen,” Elite Screens Inc. marketing manager, David Rodgers, said. “With enough surface space for a flat-panel TV, Raptor provides a perfect solution for both everyday viewing and special home theater experiences.”

Elite’s Raptor comes in three sizes: 72 inches, 84 inches, or 92 inches measured diagonally with a 16:9 and 2.35:1 aspect ratios available, with Elite’s MaxWhite FG fiberglass-backed material that provides a flat and visible surface in 1.1 gain for home theater versatility. Additional material options also include Elite’s CineWhite 1.1 gain tension material.

Raptor utilizes a motorized cross-rising “scissor” mechanism for versatility in placement and integration. It is driven by a tubular motor that has been designed to provide better weight tolerance and improved operational lifespan. Its variable-height settings accommodate virtually any home theater environment, while the cabinet’s neutral design and aesthetic accentuates the décor of most homes or offices.
