  • [17:52] Customer: Hello I run a Community Garden and we have a stage for music and events. We would like to purchase a screen for random films. Can you please help me understand and select one? I do now know what the difference is between 16:9 or 4:3. I have a “16:9” projector The space I have available is 14 ft wide, 9 ft deep, but the height due to signage is 7.5 height. Can I adjust the leg heights?
  • [17:53]        Jaime: If you are looking at our Yardmaster series, the legs are not adjustable
  • [17:53] Customer: Yes, yardmaster. Front Projection.
  • [17:53]        Jaime: Here is information on aspect ratios.  I recommend 16:9
  • [17:53]        Jaime: Here is a screen calculator that will help you with screen sizes and the projector’s throw distance:
  • [17:54] Customer: Probably just the front- but if price isn’t too different, might find a need for both.
  • [17:56]        Jaime: if working on a certain budget, this would be the model to go with for front projection:
  • [17:56]        Jaime: you can compare prices of our Yardmasters on Amazon
  • [17:57]        Jaime: you can also check the prices for the dual series, which allows projection from both the front and the rear
  • [17:57]        Jaime: this is the link to the dual series:
  • [17:58] Customer: Thanks, and no way to make those legs shorter huh?
  • [17:58]        Jaime: No, but there is a solution.
  • [17:58]        Jaime: We offer extension legs increase height if you want it taller.
  • [17:58]        Jaime: But if you want it shorter, there is no need to accessorize.
  • [18:00] Customer: second link you sent didn’t go through/ do you have another?
  • [18:00]        Jaime: Try this one. It’s our Yard Master 2 Series:
  • [18:00]        Jaime: This has 2-way materials that you can project either way on.
  • [18:00] Customer: right. I like that
  • [18:01] Customer: Okay, thanks for all your help
  • [18:01]        Jaime: I was glad to help.
  • [18:01] Customer: Okay, thanks again. Bye.
  • [18:01]        Jaime: Thank you for choosing  Elite Screens.
