Elite Screens announces its Raptor projection screen, a premium grade electric floor-rising screen that conceals itself in a functional furniture cabinet. Elite's Raptor is an elegant choice when ceiling or wall projection screen mounts won't do.
CERRITOS, Calif., September 3, 2008 - Elite Screens, Inc., an innovative company that specializes in affordable high quality projector screens, today announced its Raptor projection screen, a premium grade electric floor -rising screen that conceals itself in a functional furniture cabinet. Elite's Raptor is an elegant choice when wall or ceiling projection screen installations are not practical.
"Raptor is a premium grade powered projection screen that fulfills a role in AV integration that has not previously received the consideration it deserves," said David Rodgers, marketing manager, Elite Screens, Inc. "It is ideal for hidden theater environments or executive conference rooms. With the touch of a button, both screen and projector appear like magic."
Elite's Raptor comes in three sizes: 72 inches, 84 inches or 100 inches measured diagonally with a 16:9 aspect ratio. It's available with Elite's MaxWhite FG fiberglass -backed material to provide a flat and easily visible surface in 1.1 gain for presentation versatility. The Raptor is housed in a fully functional media cabinet that accommodates a variety of media players and software. Currently, furniture finish options are matte black or cherry wood surfaces.
The screen's mechanized cross -rising apparatus 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 furniture's neutral design and aesthetics accommodate the décor of most homes or offices.
Elite's Raptor provides a wide variety of control options for increased flexibility. Each unit has a built -in 5 -12V trigger for drop/rise synchronization with the projector's power cycle along with infrared and radio frequency (IR/RF) receivers for a complete wireless operational package. Both an RF remote and a ZR800D IR universal learning remote are included. 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.
Pricing, Availability, Warranty
Elite Screens' Raptor is priced at $3999 and will be available in September through retail, internet, professional AV and systems integrator channels. It comes with Elite's two -year manufacturer's limited warranty, which is twice the industry standard.
