Ambient Light Rejecting Screens Designed for Ultra Short Throw Projectors

Sure, you could project directly onto a large, perfectly flat white wall or even a “conventional” matte white projection screen, but an Ambient Light Rejecting (ALR) 16:9 projection screen designed specifically for ultra short throw laser projectors is a must to get the maximum picture quality possible from any UST projector, even more so for daytime viewing and/or in rooms with windows. Unless stated otherwise, assume that assembly is required, as well as proper wall-mounting and alignment with image from UST projector.

***Seeking a DAYLIGHT SCREEN? Planning on using your UST projector primarily during daytime hours in a room with an excessive amount of ambient light from ceiling lighting, lamps, sliding glass doors, and/or large windows? Check out the page about Ambient Light Rejecting ALR Daylight Fresnel projection screens designed for UST projectors.

***Seeking an ELECTRIC FLOOR-RISING SCREEN? If you prefer NOT to wall-mount a fixed-frame projection screen on the wall and/or simply don’t want to have to assemble your new screen, check out the page about Ambient Light Rejecting ALR electric motorized floor-rising projection screens designed for UST projectors.
