Elite Screens’ new Raptor projection screen changes the face of executive office presentations.
Raptor, a premium electric floor-rising screen that conceals itself in an attractive functional furniture cabinet, is now available in a front-mounted configuration that allows enough surface space for up to a 60-inch flat-panel display. Originally designed as a home theater product, the Raptor established a growing following as an executive office centerpiece. It has stylish aesthetics and the choice of MaxWhite FG (fiberglass-backed, non-tensioned) or CineWhite (tension PVC) projection material. In addition, there is the option of 16:9 or 2.35:1 aspect ratios.
Elite’s Raptor is an elegant, completely self-standing projection screen for situations where wall or ceiling screen installations are not practical. It is housed in a fully functional media stand that accommodates a variety of hardware with its self-contained, attractive design.
“Raptor is an ideal home theater solution that combines aesthetic elegance with the functional performance of a large disappearing projection screen,” said David Rodgers, marketing manager, Elite Screens, Inc. “With enough surface space for a flat-panel TV or other functional items, Raptor provides a perfect solution.”
Elite’s Raptor comes in three sizes: 72-inches, 84-inches or 92-inches measured diagonally with a 16:9 and 2.35:1 aspect ratios available, with Elite’s MaxWhite FG fiberglass-backed material that provides a flat and easily visible surface in 1.1 gain for home theater versatility. Additional material options also include Elite’s CineWhite 1.1 gain tension material.
Raptor utilizes a motorized cross-rising “scissor” mechanism for versatility in placement and convenient integration. It is driven by a tubular motor that has a superior weight tolerance and operational lifespan. Its variable height settings accommodate virtually any home theater environment while the cabinet’s neutral design and aesthetic accentuates the décor of most homes or offices.
Elite’s Raptor provides a wide variety of control options for increased flexibility. Each unit comes with a 5-12V wireless trigger for drop/rise synchronization with a projector’s power cycle along with infrared and radio frequency (IR/RF) receivers for a complete wireless operational package. The RF remote provides a superior range of wireless operation without the necessity for line-of-sight contact. The ZR800D IR universal learning remote allows simultaneous screen operation with up to eight different media devices so users can easily and quickly manipulate various video and media sources. Both the RF remote and a ZR800D IR universal learning remote are included.
Pricing, Availability, Warranty
