[Elite ProAV] Kestrel Tab-Tension DarkUST®

[Elite ProAV] Kestrel Tab-Tension DarkUST®


Elite ProAV has a commercial grade ambient light rejecting, motorized floor rising projector screen that has earned the designation of (CLR®) for its ability to mitigate high levels of overhead or “ceiling” light. The Kestrel Tab-Tension DarkUST® Series is suited for ultra-short throw projection applications in meeting or living room spaces. It is the ideal non-invasive solution for environments with bright room lighting or if wall-ceiling installations are impractical. Under normal lighting conditions, matte white screens present a milky, washed-out image. Kestrel Tab-Tension DarkUST® allows a larger than life display with “TV-Screen” brightness to appear at the press of a button regardless if the lights are on or off.

The DarkUST® material is configured in a tab-tensioned format to ensure a taut and flat projection surface suitable for Ultra Short throw Projectors. In addition to this, the screen is masked with black borders on all sides to enhance perceived contrast. Each screen is backed by Elite ProAV’s 5-year premium warranty and its professional support team.
