Motorized "Floor-Rising" Ambient Light Rejecting Screen for UST Projector
If you are in a situation where you either cannot, or simply prefer not to, assemble and/or permanently mount a fixed-frame projection screen on the wall, an electric motorized floor-rising ambient light rejecting screen just might be the right solution for you. A “floor-rising” screen can be set up directly on the floor if you also place your ultra short throw projector on the floor, or you can instead center both the screen and projector atop the same stand, cabinet, or table, even if the housing of the screen is too long and it hangs over both sides.
