The 16:9 PolarMax Aerie Tension Screen is available in a choice of sizes, and it is backed by a five-year limited warranty.

The new EPV Screens PolarMax Aerie Tension Screen is a modern projection screen solution that combines certified performance, environmentally friendly materials and home-friendly stealth ergonomics.

EPV Screens says that its latest screen product is a motorized in-ceiling screen that utilizes a special screen material that rejects the washout effects associated with reflected ceiling light and off-axis ambient light. 

“The material's ambient light rejection and ISF [Imaging Science Foundation] performance is superb, but what is really impressive is the screen's ability to stand up to the effects of constantly rolling up and down,” points out Dave Rodgers, marketing manager, EPV Screens. 

“In-ceiling projection screens are the best solution for seamless integration. Press the button or turn on the projector, and that's when the show really starts before the movie does.”

Not only is the new PolarMax Aerie Tension Screen ISF certified to meet a high level of performance standards, but the screen is also GREENGUARD/UL 2818 certified for safe indoor air-quality emissions. 

Taking a look at the screen's specifications, EPV Screens states the product employs its PolarStar 1.3-gain material that features angular reflective ambient and ceiling light rejecting (ALR/CLR) qualities. 

According to the Calif.-based manufacturer, the PolarStar screen material incorporates a multi-layer matrix construction with reflective and absorbent micro particles, and contrast-diffusion layers that eliminates up to 85% of ambient light. 

The PolarMax Aerie Tension screen also utilizes a tab-tension system that helps the screen to maintain a flat screen surface. 

EPV Screens also points out the PolarMax is compatible with 4K and 8K content, as well as HDR-encoded video.

The 16:9 (1.78:1) screen is available in a choice of sizes ranging from 103 inches to 133 inches, and EPV Screens back the product with a five-year limited warranty.
