Adjusting the Height Settings for the CineTension B Series

with No Comments

This discussion answers crucial questions between our various tab-tensioned projection screens. In addition to pointing out the differences, it also walks the customer through the operation of the CineTension B Vertical Limit Switch. This feature allows the end user to change  the distance that a screen comes out of its casing.

  • [21:34]        Rick: Hello, how may I help you.
  • [21:35] Customer: I am looking at the CineTension B series screen and wanted to ask if the screen MUST be lowered all the way or if it is adjustable and can be set to a predefined height
  • [21:35]        Rick: Yes, the screen comes factory pre-set to it lowest drop point but we do have instructions on how you can shorten your screen’s drop or bring it back out to the factory setting.
  • [21:35] Customer: my application is for home use, I am interested in a tension tab screen based on what I have read
  • [21:35]        Rick: I have a solution
  • [21:36]        Rick: You will be able to adjust to stop shorter and the screen will be set to stop in this position.
  • [21:36] Customer: That’s perfect!
  • [21:37] Customer: i wasn’t sure if it would be possible b/c I wasn’t sure if the tension system needed to be fully down to engage properly
  • [21:37] Customer: 2nd question…
  • [21:37] Customer: I was also looking at the Spectrum Tab-Tension screen… major difference being the screen material
  • [21:38] Customer: I saw the spec sheets but can you tell me anything more about the “real world” differences
  • [21:39]        Rick: The spectrum Tab Tension is designed  to provide assistance to prevent the material from curling on the sides. and the CineTension b is actual tension material and will provide the flattest surface.
  • [21:40] Customer: So the CineTension is higher tension or the bottom is weighted more? or… I guess I am asking what’s the difference ( I assumed tensioned was tensioned… )
  • [21:42]        Rick: Yes, the CineTension B is more tensioned, the weight bar and unit is heavier. and due to this, the unit is compatible to short throw and ultra-short throw projectors. as the spectrum tension system is to assist and prevent the material from curling on the side and the material is not stretched.
  • [21:43]        Rick: Also, it’s more lighter.
  • [21:44] Customer: Alright, the CineTension sounds like a far superior product then based on this info + viewing angles/reflection angles
  • [21:46] Customer: I plan to use it for tv/movies/video games, i currently have 1080P but want to be able to upgrade to 4k, short throw is a non-issue i have about 13 feet between the projector and screen
  • [21:46]        Rick: Yes, this unit will be best suited and is also 4K and UHD ready.
  • [21:46] Customer: Based on that, any other products you recommend I consider?
  • [21:47] Customer: Also, any difference between the CineTension 2 and B (other than the extra material for the drop down?)
  • [21:49]        Rick: the CineTension 2 has a black backing that will prevent any light from bleeding through as the B series does not have black backing.
  • [21:49]        Rick: And the housing is black only and the B series is white case only.
  • [21:50] Customer: alright, good to know, thank you very much for your time and help.
  • [21:50]        Rick: Thank you for choosing Elite Screens
