Elite Screens Debuts Non-Electric Large-Venue Projection Screen

Elite Screens is offering an affordable alternative to large-venue retractable projector screens.

Elite’s new Manual Grande is a non-electric retractable projection screen that incorporates a bead-chain clutch system that allows up/down/stop at any point of rotation. The drop-retract mechanism is based on the same systems used in large commercial window roller shades.

Elite Screens is touting the Manual Grande’s role in providing a retractable big-screen installation that does not require an electrical source. Various facilities may not be adequately wired to provide outlets for ceiling or near-ceiling attachments. This is especially true with precast concrete buildings and subterranean structures. The Manual Grande may also be more appropriate for use in thin-walled structures that have a limited weight tolerance and local code requirements may not permit the necessary wiring for an electric retractable screen, the company said.

The actual screen material is 4K Ultra HD and active 3D-ready matte white. It is available in 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios.
