It is always important to determine what each screen installation is for.  This will enable you to find the appropriate size, material, and aspect ratio.  This discussion below references a typical discussion involving a rear-projection (RP) projector screen and how it will be used.

[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

[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. [email protected]

[18:20] Customer: Great. Thanks for the help.

[18:13] Rick: You bet.  Thank you for choosing elite screens.
