80" Diagonal ALR Ultra Short Throw Projector Screens
80″ Screen Viewing Distance: The recommended viewing distance range from screen surface to eyes while seated for an 80-inch diagonal 16:9 aspect ratio projection screen is from 8 feet (96 inches) to 12 feet (144 inches), from most immersive to least immersive.
80″ Image Width and Height: The rectangular dimensions for an exactly 80-inch diagonal 16:9 aspect ratio projected image onto a perfectly-flat, vertical wall are about 69.8 inches wide by 39.2 inches high.
Phoenix Projectors AV and XY Screens each offer a tensioned wall-mount, fixed-frame 80″ diagonal ALR (Ambient Light Rejecting) projection screen which must be properly assembled, aligned with UST projector image, and permanently hung from the wall. Phoenix Projectors AV also offers a plug-and-play tab-tensioned electric motorized free-standing floor-rising 80″ diagonal ALR projection screen which rises/lowers at the push of a button, as well as electric motorized wall/ceiling-mount drop-down 80″ diagonal ALR screens which also lower/rise at the push of a button and must be properly aligned with the UST projector’s image and mounted to the wall/ceiling. NECTUNT offers an integrated “vanishing” UST projector cabinet with a hidden, recessed motorized rising/lowering 80″ ALR screen and a flip-up/down projector drawer. 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.
