EPV Screens has launched the PolarMax Aerie Tension motorized “in-ceiling” projector screen that uses a specialty material that rejects the washout effects of ceiling light as well as off-axis ambient lighting. The PolarMax Aerie Tension Series features the PolarStar ceiling and ambient light rejecting (CLR/ALR) material which is durable enough for heavy use without degrading.
PolarStar is a 1.3 Gain, angular reflective ambient and ceiling light rejecting front projection material. The off-axis light rejection is accomplished using a multi-layer matrix with reflective and absorbent micro-particles with high contrast diffusion layers that eliminate up to 85 percent of ambient light. It is ISF-Certified. The PolarStar material is also GREENGUARD/UL 2818 certified for safe indoor air quality emissions. The Polar Max includes a tab-tensioning system that provides a flat, taut surface for optimal picture performance.
The retractable design provides a big screen performance without dedicating wall space to exclusively one purpose. This way, the viewer can enjoy greater versatility with a disappearing screen when not in use. The PolarMax Aerie Tension comes fully assembled and is ready to integrate into ceiling spaces either from within the room or from within the airspace above the room. A full IR and RF remote control kit is included along with a wireless 12-volt projector trigger that will coordinate the projector’s drop and rise with the projector’s power cycle.
It is presently available in 103-133-inch sizes with a 16:9 aspect ratio. These screens are available through EPV Screen’s line of dedicated residential and commercial integrator products. It comes with Elite’s five-year manufacturer’s warranty.
