AWOL Vision, Spectra Projection, and XY Screens each offer wall-mounted, fixed-frame 120-inch diagonal ALR (Ambient Light Rejecting) projection screens designed specifically for an ultra short throw projector which produce contrast levels that are far superior to standard matte white screens. VIVIDSTORM offers (wall-mountable) tab-tensioned electric motorized free-standing floor-rising and also wall/ceiling-mounted drop-down 120-inch diagonal ALR screens which rise/lower at the push of a button. Some VIVIDSTORM floor-rising models have acoustically-transparent perforated bottom masking ideal for hiding a soundbar or center channel speaker behind the bottom of the screen. And some VIVIDSTORM drop-down screen models even feature a “rotated/flipped” orientation designed specifically for “upside-down” ceiling-mounted UST projectors!
