[17:54] Rick: Hello, how may I help you. [17:54] Customer: Looking for a 16′ rear-projection screen, low-voltage ceiling mounted [17:56] Customer: Can you suggest a model? Aspect ratio of 16:10, with wide viewing angle. [17:59] Rick: These screens are currently made in 16:9 aspect ratios to accommodate the HDTV native format of projectors used for residential and hospitality venues in which rear-projection electric screens are typically used. 16:10 is more common for laptop or PowerPoint presentations. Is this what you are intending to do? Are you using it for a conference room instead? [18:00] Customer: Actually, it is and thanks for the clarification. That said, the customer does intend to use 16:9 content as well. I’m sure if we change the output on the projector, we can make it work. The client is not that fussed. [18:00] Customer: Do you have a screen that’s close to 15’ wide but perhaps a little less than that. [18:01] Rick: I have two options for you. One is about 13 feet across and the other is about 14.5 feet in width. [18:07] Rick: Here are the models. TE180HR2-Dual view dimension is 88.3×156.9 model TE200HR2-Dual – 98×174 [18:08] Customer: Excellent – thank you. [18:08] Rick: Also, do note that housing will be larger than this [18:09] Customer: I’m expecting it to be. The client has a bit of room above the stage area. [18:09] Rick: oh ok. [18:11] Rick: here is the link of the screen. [18:11] Rick: https://elitescreens.com/front/front/productdetail/product/457 [18:12] Customer: Thank you again. [18:13] Customer: Do you have the MSRP for this model? [18:20] Rick: Just one moment and I will connect you with our sales team. Their email contact will be in the message that I am including you in assistance. firstname.lastname@example.org [18:20] Customer: Great. Thanks for the help. [18:13] Rick: You bet. Thank you for choosing elite screens.
