  • [16:13]        Jaime: Hello, how may I help you?
  • [16:14] Joe: Hi is there a manual or electronic rolling screen that works well with ultra-short throw projectors?
  • [16:14] Joe: I know fixed screens are ideal but any good tension screens that roll up?
  • [16:15]        Jaime: yes, you can use our manual tensioned series
  • [16:15]        Jaime: this is the link to the product page:
  • [16:16]        Jaime: When ready, you can buy one here:
  • [16:16]        Jaime: Prices are provided at the second link
  • [16:16] Joe: ok let me look thanks
  • [16:17]        Jaime: sure thing
  • [16:19] Joe: is 16:9 the most popular?
  • [16:20]        Jaime: yes, it is for HD viewing
  • [16:20] Joe: But if I want larger than 100inch I have to go 16:10?
  • [16:21]        Jaime: If you want something larger than what is offered in the manual version, you’d then have to look at getting a motorized tab-tensioned model
  • [16:21]        Jaime: The sizes vary for each model
  • [16:22]        Jaime: for short throw projector, you’d have to use this model:
  • [16:23] Joe: Okay once those are down are they both equal as far as keeping flat?
  • [16:23]        Jaime: That is correct
  • [16:23] Joe: over the years
  • [16:23]        Jaime: you need to have a flat surface for a short throw projector
  • [16:24] Joe: I understand that…the 2 options you gave me are both equal other than manual vs mechanical?
  • [16:24] Joe: or is the mechanical better made?
  • [16:24] Joe: stronger?
  • [16:24] Joe: obviously more expensive
  • [16:25]        Jaime: The mechanical is different, but life-span should be about the same
  • [16:27] Joe: so if we were just keeping the screen lowered it doesn’t matter they are both equal?
  • [16:28]        Jaime: correct
  • [16:28]        Jaime: both are equal in flatness
  • [16:28] Joe: ok last question…what’s the diff 16:9 vs 16:10
  • [16:29]        Jaime: 16:10 is for power point
  • [16:29]        Jaime: you hook up a laptop to your projector for it
  • [16:29]        Jaime: for home theater, you use 16:9
  • [16:30] Joe: what do you use 16/10 for?
  • [16:30]        Jaime: laptop
  • [16:31]        Jaime: power point presentations.  Here is a great tutorial –
  • [16:31] Joe: ok ty
  • [16:31]        Jaime: sure thing
  • [16:31]        Jaime: have a good day
  • [16:31] Joe: u2
