Stands and Cabinets for Ultra Short Throw Projectors
If you plan on going with a simple plug-and-play electric/motorized floor-rising ALR (Ambient Light Rejecting) projection screen together with a 4K ultra short throw projector placed directly on the floor in front of it, you obviously don’t need to purchase a stand or cabinet specifically to hold your UST projector.
If you prefer, at the push of a power button, to command a hidden motorized ALR screen to rise up from, and disappear back into, a cabinet synchronized with a UST projector that appears from, and then disappears back into, a hidden sliding drawer mechanism, you might want to consider AWOL Vision’s elegant integrated all-in-one Vanish Laser TV 4K UST projector plus 100″ or 120″ Cinematic ALR screen solution, or instead go with one of the NECTUNT “Invisible Laser Cinema” smart cabinets with built-in motorized ALR screen and projector drawer (pictured below) which are featured on the 80″, 88″, and 100″ screen pages, and separately add your own 4K UST projector.
A primary consideration when choosing any specific UST projector stand or cabinet on/in which to place and support your ultra short throw projector is its height, because a stand or cabinet that is too tall and/or a ceiling that is too low could potentially limit the size of your image/screen. Don’t forget to calculate for the extra vertical height required between the horizontal surface where the feet of your UST projector sit and the bottom of the projected image/screen, which varies anywhere from around a foot to a foot and a half or so depending on your specific UST projector model and how large your image/screen will be. For the rest of this page, I assume that you will be going with EITHER a wall-mount fixed-frame OR a wall/ceiling-mount electric motorized drop-down ALR screen (OR projecting the image directly onto a flat wall). Actually, select models of VIVIDSTORM’s electric motorized “floor-rising” ALR screens include a pair of wall-mounting brackets, so…
POVISON UST Projector Stand with Manual Pull-Out Projector Surface
The awkwardly-named POVISON TS1021BL “Modern TV Stand for Projector” [manufacturer’s link] [available in 79″, 102″, or 126″ width at Amazon] is a perfect solution to support your 4K UST projector just 11 inches off the floor atop a rectangular 24.5″ wide x 17.7″ deep surface that can be manually pulled out up to an additional 9.8″ using the embedded gold-colored pull handle before you start your viewing, and then manually retracted when you’re finished. With its white “Sintered Stone” top and accent on the center drawer, contrasted with its black vertically-ribbed body hiding more drawers, this modern UST projector stand would look nice underneath image/screen sizes ranging from about 90″ to 150″ diagonal, depending on the stand size you buy and whether it’s located up against, or out just a bit from, the wall. Dimensions are 78.7″, 102.4″, or 126″ wide, 11″ high, 17.7″ deep, and it weighs 84, 99 or 114 pounds. Delivered to your home in three cartons which may or may not arrive at the same time or on the same day. Simple assembly required attaching the three pieces.
NECTUNT UST Projector Cabinets w/ Hidden Motorized Projector Drawer
NECTUNT offers two different styles of intelligent electric motorized invisible UST projector cabinets. The first one (pictured above) [manufacturer’s link] [available in Walnut veneer or White at Amazon] hides your UST projector inside the cabinet (at 8.35″ above the floor) until you power it up, and then the “sunroof” opens and the anti-collision drawer (with silent cooling fans) slowly slides out from the cabinet to the appropriate throw distance to project onto your 100″ diagonal wall-mounted ALR screen or the wall. Doors open to storage on each side. Dimensions are 86.7″ wide, 18.1″ high, 19.4″ deep, and it weighs 275 pounds. Note: This appears to be nearly identical to the AWOL Vision Smart Cabinet, except that AWOL offers it for both a 100″ diagonal image/screen size, and a slightly larger model for a 120″ diagonal image/screen size.
The second one (pictured above) [manufacturer’s link] [available with either Black or White Rock Plate top panel, in 9 different size options at Amazon] features similar functionality to the above NECTUNT cabinet but has horizontal pull-down aluminum alloy cabinet doors with diamond glass covering the storage on each side. Each of the nine available sizes feature the same cabinet height of 16.5″, but vary in cabinet depth of 17.7″ or 19.7″, and cabinet width of 86.6″, 94.5″, 110.2″, 126″, or 141.7″, making this NECTUNT UST projector cabinet a perfect solution for pairing with diagonal screen sizes ranging from about 90″ to 150″. Features a 3-section split design, convenient for shipping and handling and ease of assembly. Packages may or may not all arrive at your home at the same time or on the same day. Note: This looks cosmetically similar to the cabinet included with the AWOL Vision Vanish Laser TV!

Hisense L9H and L9G UST Projector Cabinets by Salamander Designs
Samsung LSP9T UST Projector Cabinets by Salamander Designs
LG HU915Q UST Projector Cabinets by Salamander Designs
LG obviously has a special relationship with Salamander Designs, as there are ten distinct styles of cabinets designed for the LG 4K UST projectors — the current HU915QB and HU915QE models, and their discontinued HU85LA. The X/LG1/245S Model 245S cabinets are in the same style as the Model 245 of the Epson, Hisense, and Samsung cabinets above and are available in Chicago, Miami, and Oslo at Amazon.com. However, the X/LG1/245 Model 245 cabinets for LG’s 4K UST projectors instead feature the projector bay covered with a speaker grille above two drawers and are available in Chicago (pictured above), Miami, and Oslo at Amazon.com.
Don’t care about storage space to the left and right sides of the UST projector and/or prefer a much narrower cabinet? Measuring just 44″ wide, 21.3″ high, and 21.3″ deep, the X/LG1229S Model 229S cabinets feature a “dual speaker grille” front design similar to the wider Model 245S and are available in Miami Gloss Warm White (pictured above) and Siena Smooth Black Oak Veneer at Amazon.com. The X/LG1229 Model 229 cabinets feature the projector bay covered with a speaker grille above two drawers similar to the wider Model 245 and are also available in Miami (pictured below) and Siena at Amazon.com.
