101" Diagonal ALR Ultra Short Throw Projector Screens

101″ Screen Viewing Distance: The recommended viewing distance range from screen surface to eyes while seated for a 101-inch diagonal 16:9 aspect ratio projection screen is from 10.1 feet (121 inches) to 15.2 feet (182 inches), from most immersive to least immersive.

101″ Image Width and Height: The rectangular dimensions for an exactly 101-inch diagonal 16:9 aspect ratio projected image onto a perfectly-flat, vertical wall are about 88.1 inches wide by 49.5 inches high.

Elite Screens offers plug-and-play tab-tensioned electric motorized free-standing floor-rising 101″ diagonal ALR projection screens which rise/lower at the push of a button, and are the easiest to set up and use with UST projectors sitting on the floor. Elite Screens also offers tab-tensioned electric motorized wall/ceiling-mount drop-down 101″ diagonal ALR screens that also lower/rise at the push of a button, which must be properly aligned with the UST projector’s image and mounted from the wall/ceiling. Any of these ALR screens will produce contrast levels far superior to standard matte white screens when used together with an ultra short throw projector, even more so inside a light-controlled or darkened room.
