A:  All Elite Screens projection materials with the exception of the StarBright™ 7 and the StarBright™ 4 can be cleaned with mild soap and water using a soft terry cloth. For stain removals, stronger cleaning agent may be used. Please use with caution as strong cleaning agents may remove the coating screen material and cause permanent damage.

StarBright™ 7 material is to be clean with a very soft cloth and mild soap and water.  Do not rub the viewing surface or permanent damage will occur.

StarbBright™ 4 (WhiteBoardScreen™) is cleaned with the included spray bottle and the high density eraser.  For deep cleaning, we recommend using a low alcohol product and wiping it off with the high density eraser.

A: Elite Screens offers many options for ultra-short throw projectors. It is important that you select a projection screen surface that is pliable and can be stretched/tensioned to achieve a flat projection ripple-free image. We recommend a fixed frame or tab-tensioned screen with any of our CineWhite® (controlled room light required for best results) variant of materials and StarBright CLR® for ceiling ambient light rejecting technology.

Please refer to our Screen and Projector Compatibility database for a complete list of the type of screens available.
Select the ultra-short throw in the Projector Type drop down box for a complete list of options.
