The Garden Grove, Calif.-based screen manufacturer Elite Screens is known primarily for its selection of reasonably priced screens that allow a wide demographic of consumers to own a projection-based home theater.

Expanding its product line, the California company has announced its Saker Tab-Tension with AcousticPro UHD Material to provide dealers with a higher-end product solution that is also room friendly.

“Due to the diversity of our customer segments, there should always be a good/better/best. This is established so that the customer can get precisely what they want without over-spending for what they don’t need, says Dave Rodgers, marketing manager of Elite Screens. “The Saker Tab-Tension Series provides more refinement in design and function than the average online A/V product but comes at a more modest price tag than something tailor made for a custom installation.”

This motorized projection screen employs the company’s AcousticPro UHD acoustically transparent woven screen material, which is said to be a moire-free solution that provides only a 2.36dB average insertion loss to facilitate the placement of speakers behind the material. Elite also points out the 1.0-gain screen is housed in a stylish aluminum casing, and it incorporates an IR/RF wireless control package that features a three-way wall box, RJ45 connection for third-party control system integration, and a wireless 5 to 12-volt trigger.

The screen is available in sizes ranging from 100 inches to 120 inches in a 16:9 format. The company backs the product with a two-year warranty.
