Elite Screens, Inc announced the Kestrel projection screen. It is a premium grade mobile electric floor-rising screen designed for executive presentations, formal functions or residential home theater rooms that require a flexible alternative to fixed wall or ceiling-mounted installations.

“Our new Kestrel screen fuses high tech convenience with superior quality materials,” said David Rodgers, marketing manager, Elite Screens, Inc. “Its precise mechanism makes it rise with a smooth and flawless action with the touch of a button.”

Elite’s Kestrel measures 84 or 100 inches diagonally in either a 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratio and has a stylish piano gloss finish that combines its aesthetic appeal with the functional portability of its plug and play design. It’s available with Elite’s MaxWhite FG fiberglass-backed material to provide a flat and easily visible surface in 1.1 Gain.

The screen’s mechanized cross-rising apparatus is driven by a tubular motor that has a superior weight tolerance and operational lifespan over synchronized motors used in other models. Its variable height settings accommodate virtually any presentation environment.

Elite’s Kestrel provides a wide variety of control options for increase flexibility. Each unit has a built in 5-12V trigger for drop/rise synchronization with the projector’s power cycle along with Infrared and Radio Frequency (RF) receivers for a complete wireless operational package. Both an RF remote and a ZR800D IR universal learning remote are included. The RF remote provides a superior range of wireless operation without the need for line-of-sight contact. The ZR800D IR universal learning remote allows simultaneous screen operation with up to eight different media devices so users can easily and quickly manipulate video and media sources.

Pricing, Availability, Warranty
Elite Screens’ Kestral is priced at $2199 and will be available in June through retail, internet, professional AV and systems integrator channel. It comes with Elite’s two-year manufacturer’s limited warranty, which is twice the industry standard.
